Witnesses Interviews and Statements
A very important aspect of any legal investigation is the witness interview. Witnesses are a critical part of the discovery process, whether for a civil matter or criminal case. How a witness is dealt with early in the investigation has consequences that may be felt throughout the case. While a private investigator's fiduciary responsibility is to the client, they main goal is to uncover and develop all facts in the case, not to prove a client's theory of what occurred. Our most productive interviews are generally conducted in the witness's choice of environment, such as home or work. If the interview is conducted at home or work, the investigator can observe additional background information about the witness by items seen in and around the home or workplace. At DBM Private Investigator we are highly expereiced at developing a good rapport with a witness, this is vital to the process because the investigator is typically called upon to facilitate the witness's appearance at deposition and at trial. Presenting a good rapport also allows the investigator to gently probe for bias, or hidden agendas in the witness statement of events.
