We’re often asked if a private investigator in Orlando can be a witness. Most of the time, this is absolutely possible. While situations and cases vary widely, it’s often appropriate to plan for an Orlando private investigator to testify in your case. Set out below are just a few common examples where the benefits of extra information and credible testimony are obvious, but those benefits can be applied to nearly any legal situation.
Cases where you might need a Florida private investigator as a witness run the gamut from insurance fraud to employee theft to child custody and disproving allegations of spousal abuse. It’s generally both possible and productive to have an investigator testify as to what they witnessed along with providing the documentary video and photographic evidence.
Credibility is the key factor, however. Not all private investigators are credible or reliable. Torres Protection Group maintains a reputation for excellent work product, credibility, skill, and expertise. TPG values that reputation, and works hard to maintain it. Your case, large or small, will receive the same expertise, attention to detail, and law enforcement experience as any other case because we value that reputation.
Can An Orlando Private Investigator Be A Witness In A Child Custody Case?
An Orlando private investigator with Torres Protection Group has the utmost in credibility, experience, and reputation. That’s crucial when you’re defending yourself against false allegations of abuse or worse in a divorce or custody situation. Someone who is not abusive but expects the accusation to be made could retain a private investigator to document a disagreement they expect will happen, to prove that no abuse occurred or even that the injuries were self-inflicted.
Child custody cases in Florida have, unfortunately, devolved to a level where it’s not about proving that you’re the better parent – you have to prove that the other parent is completely unfit. While you may know that to be true, proving it in court can be difficult. Private investigators in Florida are adept at documenting exactly what is occurring and the circumstances surrounding it. If there’s abuse, you need to be able to prove it and a private investigator witness can make this much easier.
Can A Private Investigator In Orlando Be A Witness In An Employee Termination Case?
Yes. If an investigation was required to prove wrongdoing and you have terminated the employee, a private investigator in Orlando can be a witness if there is an employment case. This might range from unemployment appeals to a full-out civil trial.
Employees who need to be investigated are generally on the wrong side of both company policy and the law. This means that there is a clear-cut body of evidence gathered by your private investigator. They can testify as to how the evidence was gathered, their qualifications, and their estimation of what conclusion the evidence points to.
Employee termination cases requiring a private investigator can range from data theft to cash theft to unacceptable behavior in the workplace, and even into the realm of fraud. Often, these require specialized investigative techniques which simply aren’t available to many firms. Torres Protection Group’s federal law enforcement experience makes quick work of these cases. That experience also enables a higher standard of gathering evidence and makes our private investigators uniquely qualified to testify as to source, methods, context, and meaning of the evidence.
Can A Private Investigator In Orlando Be A Witness In An Insurance Fraud Case?
Yes. Here again, the law enforcement and military backgrounds of our private investigators offer unique qualifications. Sometimes, these cases resolve with a simple claim denial. Sometimes, they have to be litigated. In the latter case, the investigator will have specific knowledge of what stated facts were untrue and be able to make the connection between those statements of your insured and the insured’s goals or intentions.
In order to have a private investigator in Orlando be a witness, they need to be beyond reproach. Torres Protection Group investigators are the best in the business, and there are no surprises for defense counsel to use to impeach them. Orlando private investigators run the gamut from unimpeachable to self-impeaching, and it’s imperative that you work with the best.
Can An Orlando Private Investigator Be A Witness In A Civil Case?
While that depends to some degree on what the civil case is and the investigator’s direct knowledge of the events in question, the answer is frequently yes. As long as the investigator has direct knowledge of the events and is able to effectively connect them to the outcome you desire, it’s possible and prudent for them to serve as a witness.
With this in mind, many attorney find it appropriate to engage a private investigator early on in the process of filing a civil case. We can help to understand what ulterior motives might be at play, what actual damages may (or may not!) exist, and much more. These Florida private investigations are commonly a part of the process, regardless of which side of the lawsuit you happen to be on.
Orlando private investigators are not all the same. Torres Protection Group brings the benefits of experience and training, as well as gathering a higher standard of evidence.
