Private investigation SERVICES WE OFFER:

Primeau Forensics offers pro bono consultations to prospective clients prior to an investigation. These consultations provide an opportunity to discuss objectives and answer any questions. Digital media forensic analysis coupled with a licensed expert give our clients a value-added benefit when retaining our team for private investigations.

Primeau Forensics begins every private investigation with the assembly of a dossier. A dossier is a file that contains detailed records about the subject of an investigation. This file grows as an investigation progresses and further details come to light. As a result, our clients have a wealth of information about the requested subject during litigation. We assist our client attorneys in preparation for trial as well as other investigative activities around the legal system. We also interview key witnesses in an effort to answer questions regarding their role in an investigation.

Digital evidence by nature is fragile. It can be easily modified or destroyed if not properly preserved. Whether by accident or malicious intent, modification of any kind will discredit digital evidence as a credible source within litigation.

Technical surveillance combines physical observation and electronic equipment for a more productive, cost-efficient monitoring process. Primeau Forensics’ technical surveillance procedures incorporate active audio monitoring, video recording, and photography coupled with physical observation for optimal thoroughness. Our experience with audio, video and image forensics is an added benefit for our clients and their investigations.

A comprehensive background check is an essential step in hiring the right employee and avoiding deception, misconduct, and misrepresentation in the workplace. Our background checks include, but are not limited to, reverse phone lookup and email search, criminal history, employment history, and a summary of assets, including property and motor vehicles. Our private investigators also analyze and collect details from the subject’s social media platforms.

Unfortunately, infidelity is at epidemic proportions. This is a very sensitive issue and we advise our clients to take caution during infidelity investigations. Our team uses specialized photography, video equipment, and 24/7 GPS tracking to document unfaithful spouses in action.

Approximately 96% of Americans own a cell phone of some kind, 81% of which are smartphones. These devices bring an immeasurable amount of information directly to our fingertips, including images, videos, social media updates, location services and even pornographic materials. Users can also record audio and video directly to their device. Although smartphones are a powerful tool in our daily lives, they can be detrimental to infidelity investigations if the collected data is not analyzed with an objective mindset. Once the human mind has suspected a significant other may be cheating, our subjective senses take over and answer complicated questions based on a motivational bias rather than an objective investigative methodology.

The Primeau Forensics’ team knows how to handle infidelity situations from an unbiased, forensic perspective. Through the analysis of captured evidence and mobile devices, such as smartphones or computers, we can determine if infidelity has occurred. We also offer private investigation services to track the subject and determine if behaviors of infidelity are present and potentially catch them in the act.
