Private investigators

Top

If a restraining order has been filed against you or you have been charged with domestic violence it is quite likely that a background check of your accuser may turn up previous false allegations, convictions, or lawsuits that might be used in your defense. They may also have been abusive in a previous relationship and finding that person may provide a valuable witness for you.

You can do some elementary checks using such facilities as COcourts.com or the Colorado Bureau of Investigation Records Check and that is certainly advised. However, in many cases it will definitely pay you to hire a competent private investigator (PI) to do a thorough background check on employment, addresses, possible medical and mental health conditions, previous marriages and relationships, aliases or other names used, income, as well as possible criminal history in other states or countries, and a host of other information that may well be useful in your defense or lawsuit.

Your attorney may have an established relationship with a PI that you are comfortable working with. However, many times you may want a broader investigation requiring a national firm like Blue Moon Investigations, you simply don't like the PI your attorney recommends, or your attorney has no recommendation. In such cases you may want to consider one of the following firms who have worked with the Equal Justice Foundation or its members in the past.

A state-by-state listing of private investigators is also available.
