VTPrivateye, LLC has access to numerous real time databases, DMV records and national and international contacts and court runners that allow us to better serve our clients’ investigation needs. We can identify jurisdictions that need to be searched and pull all relevant data into a concise report. We also are very adept at in-depth social media research, and have a team of investigators in their 20's who are able to dig deep into every possible source of information on the internet, and through social media.
Criminal History Records:
Conducting a basic criminal record check is an absolute necessity when evaluating the credibility of a testifying witness. We frequently discover that a witness has not been completely honest about his or her criminal history. Whether you are verifying the credibility of your own witness or client, or testing the credibility of the opposition, it is imperative that you know all the facts. We also often run record checks for corporate entities who want to be sure that the principals in a company are honest and solvent, and have filled out a due diligence questionnnaire honestly. We are often shocked to find how dishonest people are in disclosing their past!
Litigation Background Checks:
Plaintiffs in frivolous personal injury lawsuits are frequently repeat offenders. Unfortunately there are professional plaintiffs that abuse the system by filing one frivolous lawsuit after another. A simple background check including a civil lawsuit inquiry can identify these individuals, as well as identify undisclosed pre-existing injuries related to other lawsuits. We can determine whether a plaintiff has severe debt problems, which may motivate them to settle the case on favorable terms.
Asset Searches & Due Diligence:
A background check is a critical component of any asset search or due diligence investigation. The background check serves to identify where an individual or entity has lived at any given time. Our investigators will then efficiently search for records at targeted locations during the relevant time periods. Databases allow us to search everywhere that someone may be hiding assets.
Curriculum Vitae Investigations:
A curriculum vitae is comprised of facts and representations about potential expert witness or employees. Surveys indicate that as much as 30% of all representations on resumes and curriculum vitaes are in fact misrepresentations. We will check out your experts and employees and arm you with this important information.
Many expert witnesses claim military experience. While most of these representations are legitimate, some are not. We can obtain military records that serve to confirm a witness's assertion about his or her military record and discharge status. If you suspect that a witness may be misrepresenting his or her military record, or discharge status, you owe it to your client to do a thorough military background check.
Professional License Verification:
Government authorities with oversight of professional licenses generally maintain records with regard to education, investigations, and disciplinary matters. The multitude of licenses and controlling agencies can make it extremely difficult to check all the different types of licenses and credentials claimed by witnesses. We are able to efficiently verify the license and check for any disciplinary actions, suspensions or revocations.
Driving and Accident Records:
We can promptly provide accident reports, driving records, motor vehicle records. We frequently identify and locate potential witnesses from these accident reports.
