What Can a Private Investigator Do in California?

As mentioned above, a private investigator, or PI, can work with a wide range of individuals, families, law firms, insurance companies, government entities, private businesses, and more. In each of these circumstances, the primary goal is to find information that would not otherwise become readily available so that it can shed light on legal, financial, or personal cases. To help discover this information, a private investigator can conduct surveillance, interview individuals, perform background checks, and perform other types of research.

A Murrieta private investigator has access to often-complex records databases, police reports, and other computer systems the average individual does not have. If the information requested is not available, private investigators are trained to conduct surveillance and interviews to obtain it legally, to ensure the evidence stands up in court.

What Kind of Investigations Does a PI Handle?

Our team primarily provides investigative services for the area’s top law firms, though we frequently work with private and corporate clients. Murrieta private investigator services often involve:
  • Criminal defense cases. Private investigators frequently work with criminal defense attorneys to investigate a wide range of allegations against their clients. Before court proceedings, a PI can investigate police reports, dive deep into witness statements to disprove charges, or interview friends, family, and coworkers to help provide a character statement in favor of the client. In this way, PIs and law firms can work toward the dismissal of charges or achieve more favorable sentencing.
  • Juvenile cases. While juvenile criminal cases typically require the same investigative services as listed above, a private investigator lends significant insight in these cases. A PI can investigate underlying issues that may help achieve a more favorable sentence or help avoid the juvenile receiving adult charges. Private investigators often uncover abuse, neglect, and other mitigating factors and consult with family, friends, teachers, and law enforcement to provide character statements.
  • Family law cases. Private investigators must regularly navigate emotionally charged family law cases. In a divorce case, a PI can investigate allegations of a cheating spouse or mishandling of community funds, both of which are material to the final divorce decree. Child custody agreements often hinge upon the fitness of both parties to retain custody, and a private investigator can build character witness statements or identify instances of child abuse to help ensure the courts meet the best interests of the child involved.
  • Insurance fraud cases. FICO estimates that as much as 10% of insurers’ claim costs support fraudulent claims. To mitigate these losses, if there is any doubt regarding a claim’s validity, law firms, insurers, corporations, and government entities often retain a private investigator. For example, a PI can assist a corporation experiencing a workers’ compensation claim in determining the validity of an employee’s injuries or help a home insurance provider identify the underlying cause of home damage.
  • Civil rights cases. Whether the case at hand is civil or criminal, the justice system must uphold the basic tenets of the Constitution during arrest, booking, detention, incarceration, and investigation. If this has not occurred, a private investigator can identify evidence of discrimination, unlawful procedure, even police brutality. The evidence provided can help the victim pursue favorable sentencing in a criminal case or pursue a lawsuit to reclaim damages as a result of civil rights violations.

How Do I Choose the Best Private Investigator?

Whether you require investigative services to aid your law firm in uncovering details for a criminal or civil case, prevent insurance fraud, or ensure your family law case proceeds in court with all the necessary information, it is crucial to choose an expert private investigator. To help, we have provided a list of the most important FAQs when it comes to selecting a PI:

How do you find a private investigator? Most law firms regularly utilize the services of a trusted investigator. To find a Murrieta PI who meets your needs, consider asking for a reference from an attorney or trusted associate—alternatively, search online or with a professional organization like the National Association of Legal Investigators.
  1. How do I check the credentials of my private investigation service? All California private investigators must be licensed by the state Bureau of Security and Investigative Services and maintain the proper insurance. Schedule a meeting and request documentation of each.
  2. How much does a private investigator cost? Finding a PI who fits your budget is key. The national average cost is about $150/hour, though rates may vary depending on the complexity of the case and the intensity of the services provided. Law firms may negotiate a flat rate with a trusted PI they intend to work with regularly.
