Private Investigators can help your attorney win your case by interviewing witnesses, obtaining statements and developing other helpful evidence, which cannot be discovered by the other side. But there is a catch.
A private investigator can gather evidence and provide that critical advantage allowing you to prevail in your case. A good attorney can use this edge to win in court. Everything you discuss with a private investigator is considered confidential whether you hire him or not. However, unlike a client’s relationship with his attorney, which is completely privileged and cannot be divulged by anyone other than the client, there are no legal protections between private investigators and their clients. A good private investigator will keep all the information you have given him strictly confidential. However, they may be subpoenaed and forced by the courts to testify as to the details of your case.
However, you can prevent that by having your attorney hire the investigator. When the private investigator works for your attorney, rather than you, most of what the investigator discovers and submits to the attorney is covered under Attorney Work Product and is privileged information. In addition, it means that the information your investigator learns and the statements he takes are protected. The private investigator cannot be compelled to divulge what he has learned.
Through general knowledge, personal connections, or determined work ethic, a well-seasoned investigation firm can prove invaluable to virtually all aspects of a lawsuit.
In assisting the attorney, an insightful and skilled investigation team will be able, and competent enough to research, locate, and identify expert witnesses, while being uniquely qualified to provide independent, therefore more reliable testimony at hearing and trials.
