undue-influence

Undue Influence

Undue Influence is an area of law that pertains to elder abuse in where a person takes advantage of an elder generally through financial gain. If you or someone you know is the victim of elder abuse please give us a call and we can direct you to one of our attorneys who specialize in elder abuse.  Please do not wait as time is of essence since we sometimes do not know how long the victimization has been going on. It is time to take action and stop the bleeding!  Of course, everything will be confidential and we will help you remain anonymous as well.  These types of undue influence cases can be very ugly and generally large sums of money can be taken from the victim under false pretenses and this the reason we say to call us right away.  We have experienced investigators who are either active or retired police officers who know how to deal with these types of cases.  A lot of times, people will take their case to the police and little is done because the case is dismissed as being civil when in fact it is most likely criminal but convoluted in effort to throw off the police.

The police always try their best however they lack the manpower to fully investigate such cases and white collar crimes usually are last in priority due to all the violent crimes happening in today’s society.  We can help show you how to block bank accounts, we can show you how to get the proper restraining order, we can show you how to get conservatorship along with other ways to stop the person or persons to stop taking advantage of an elder.  In many cases, it is the elder’s own loved ones who are the closest to the elder who are doing bad things to take advantage of the elder. We have seen this many times and yes it does get ugly but the only way to stop it is to take action.  If you’re not going to be actionable then things will not change and the worse it gets.  All you have to do is give us a call and we will guide you in the right direction.  Keep in mind, these types of cases are not handled over night they sometimes take a long time to tackle so do not wait any longer give us a call.

forensics

Forensic Analyst on Staff

We have a forensic analyst on staff who is second to none in the industry.  Our Forensic analyst has been hailed by attorneys as probably the best there is and let me tell you I agree!  If you have a major paper trail that goes back years and can’t figure it out, well we can help.  Is it cheap, oh noway it will cost a pretty penny but the results can be dynamic and we have proven results in past cases to be the big winner.  Most people generally lose great multitudes of money through scams, fraud, theft, embezzlement and don’t want to pay for a forensic analysis on their case and that is why they lose or never recover.  And, it has been our experience that when people try and go find a Certified Public Accountant or a cheap forensic analyst…they spend more needless money and get very little results.  Simple, we’ve been in court and have submitted forensic reports and know what the judges are looking for along with the district attorney.

Remember, our specialty is un-ringing that bell and recovering for you at all costs.  However, this does not mean we can do it all, we will need your cooperation and assistance as much as possible. If you’re an attorney and you’re looking for a forensic analyst, trust me on this one…we have the best with major experience involving many entities involving millions upon millions of dollars.  If you want to work with friendly people who are down to earth and real but with major professionalism you came to the right place.  We work vigorously for attorneys and will work for you as well.  If you do not have an attorney we can still help you, merely give us a call so we can hear your story and tell you the next step.  We have budgets that will fit most people and can make it affordable, so no worries just give us a call.

fraud

Fraud Investigations

Fraud investigations are something that is forever evolving in our system today.  Many people and or businesses are victims of fraud on a daily basis.  I bring this to your attention and there may be come a time where you need a legal investigator to assist you with a fraud investigation which could be a business partner who has duped you or some unknown party.  Either way, this happens all the time and the problem is for most law officers is that it is hard to prove.  These cases can be very convoluted and difficult to decipher due to the culprits slick ways of doing things.

The most important part of a fraud investigation is proving the elements of fraud and that is not easy to do whether it be in a criminal court or a civil court.  You may think you have concrete evidence but most of the time it does not prove up your case.  You’ll need a legal investigator who knows how to get what  you need to prove your case.  Don’t think for one minute just because the police or district attorney will not take your case means you do not  have a case.  It just means, you’ll need someone else such as us to give you a second opinion.  Most of the time, we give clients good news and take their case all the way to recovery.  Can we win all cases?  No, however, we’re pretty darn close!

If you have a fraud case and need help from our attorneys we can help you right away.  We have excellent recommendations with great testimonials from many satisfied clients.  Give us a call and we will chat with you in order to give you some stress relief.

CELEBRITY INVESTIGATOR

Celebrity Investigator

Investigations.Buzz reports: Celebrity investigator moves to the top of the food chain in our company when it comes to assisting our high-end clients. We extend an olive branch and warm welcome to any and all celebrities who are vehemently looking for confidentiality.  We can be very secretive and will shield our clients in every way possible and always have our clients objectives in mind.  Our long list of clients include many celebrities and their attorneys, from actors to producers.  Our position, is to be good listeners and assist our clients in every way possible.  We are not looking for fame, we’ve  had our 15 minutes of fame long ago, we’re here to assist celebrities behind the scenes to make sure they get the assistance they need.

We have experience in the film industry, working celebrity protection for celebrities at the Golden Globe Awards, working the red carpet as armed body guards in plain clothes for celebrities.  As peace officers, we have worked celebrity protection on film sets such as: “Three for the Road” with actors such as “Charlie Sheen and Kerri Green” in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  Another one that comes to mind is the movie “Mirage” starring “James Edward Olmos and Sean Young” which was filmed on set in the City of Coachella, CA.  Let’s not forget the blockbuster movie, “Bugsy” starring “Warren Beatty and Annette Bening” filmed in the City of Coachella.  With many more under our belt we also have a long list of celebrities we have encountered, but we will keep those names quiet since we offer confidential retainers.

A celebrity investigator is a prestigious position which we cherish and take great pride in holding dear to our hearts. It is important to us to set you stress free and help you with all of your investigative needs. Investigations.Buzz is here to take your calls and it is true we are vying for your business and will do whatever it takes to prove ourselves to you.  We help out with domestic violence issues, dissolution of marriage, harassment, cyber bullying, assault & battery cases, D.U.I., drug cases, and many others.  One of our specialties is, “damage control” where we minimize the damage or keep celebrities out of the lime light.  Meaning, you might be quite surprised what we come up with to throw off the paparazzi and keep them from following you.  So, if you’re looking for some great celebrity investigators we can help you in a wide variety of ways from using tactical maneuvers to throw off the paparazzi to finding key witnesses to help your case.

I might also mention sometimes people may think there is nothing anyone can do for them because they were caught red handed with their hand in the cookie jar but that is far from the truth, remember many hands may have been in that same cookie jar before yours…allow us to investigate and find out whose hands were in that cookie jar!  This is what we do!  For another example check this out, a lot of district attorneys in trial will use this analogy to present to the jury:

If the mother of a 5 year old boy,  bakes a chocolate cake and leaves it on the kitchen table…..then comes back later and finds her 5 year old boy with chocolate all over his face one would think for sure the boy dipped into the chocolate cake, thus, the district attorney makes their case based on “circumstantial evidence.”  Well, we come in and say yup we agree the boy did in fact have chocolate on his face, but not because he dipped into the chocolate cake, but rather he licked the spoon which was left by the mother sitting in the Betty Crocker frosting can on the counter.  Cased dismissed!

If you need an attorney, we have many seasoned attorneys who are real and will help you with your case.  Would you like to have an attorney from out of the area in where people do not know you?  Well, we have a list of them whom we work with regularly and let me tell you they are very friendly and brilliant at what they do.  So, please do not stress out over things, just give us a call and we will help set you stress free.  Do you have a substance abuse or alcohol related issue?  We are super good in this area and can help you in so many ways you would not have dreamed of.  We pretty much know all the tricks of the trade as we have worked narcotics from the street peddler to the cartel, so we can help, all you have to do is call us.  The reason I keep mentioning for you to call is we cannot help you if we don’t hear from you.  So then, the first step is to make the call and let us help you.  Remember, we’re not here to judge you, we’re here to help you conquer the demon that is stressing you.

Mike McCormick Garland County Sheriff

Mike McCormick for Sheriff

MIKE McCORMICK FOR GARLAND COUNTY SHERIFF

Interviewed by Investigations.LA: Retired, Captain & Interim Chief of Police, Mike McCormick of the Hot Springs Police Department is the top pick for the position of Sheriff for the Garland County Sheriff’s Department in the State of Arkansas! His choice to step up as an independent candidate for the position of Sheriff just proves his willingness and bravery to serve the citizens of Garland County. Remember, Mike has already served as a veteran police officer for 30 years protecting people from evildoers in life. He brings not only professionalism but practical experience to the table along with a pedigree of vast police assignments. He possesses the social skills, high education and disposition to deal with people on a down to earth level and moreover, he possesses love for Garland County is in his heart.

I interviewed Mike over the phone earlier today and boy was I excited. He is very intelligent and was a great listener, which in my opinion is just one sign of a great leader! Mike said he is ready to serve the community as Garland County Sheriff and is eager to work with the Quorum Court and the people of Garland County. I asked Mike if he had any plans to change things once he becomes Sheriff. He said, he believes he has some great ideas but when it comes to changing things, it is best to assess the situation, listen to ideas of the deputies and other employees so that the right decisions are made. Mike said it is important he stay within budget which he will scrutinize. Resources will be prioritized so that the needs of the people of Garland County are met as efficiently as possible.

Mike wants community involvement with the GCSO and would like to implement a citizens’ police academy, which was a program he successfully initiated at the Hot Springs Police Department. Mike believes that patrol is the cornerstone of any law enforcement agency and will work hard to get more deputies on the streets of Garland County. A new $42 million detention center will be opening in Garland County after the beginning of the year.

Mike states that it is imperative that it be properly managed to reduce crime and to make Garland County a safer place to live. I asked Mike about training issues within the Garland County Sheriff’s Department. Mike said, the people of Garland County demand their deputies be the best they can be and he must institute continual training not only for deputy officer safety but for the community at large. He explained training can be expensive but he has ways of working vertically with other departments to reduce costs. Mike will expect all employees to behave professionally and in a respectful manner. He considers all GCSO employees to be a direct reflection of the Sheriff. I wished Mike good luck and told him he is supported by Los Angeles Private Investigators and we certainly endorse him for the position of Sheriff, of Garland County Arkansas….

PrivateInvestigator.xyz

Private Investigator

PrivateInvestigator.xyz, is exactly what it means, we handle everything from XYZ!  The title, Private Investigator is a profession which has came leaps and bounds over the years and is a highly sought after profession at that!  A Private Investigator could potentially come from many sorts of backgrounds such as attorneys, bounty hunters, insurance companies, however, retired law enforcement has taken a great interest in the position.  Retired officers have found their services are greatly desired and clients are willing to pay for the professional Private Investigator at nearly any cost to win, after all the police are to busy and have to be in court a lot.  We have found that people are willing to pay for  private services in which law enforcement cannot provide and or are prohibited from doing because of all the legal wrangling.  We would like to share with you some of the services we offer which are second to none.  If you have a financial case as an example, we have the resources to uncover massive paper trails, interview and interrogation techniques and ways to track down people who are hiding.  To be clear, our position is not subjective, but rather objective for the client’s best interest.  We work directly for their attorneys who direct us in the areas we’re expected to investigate and focus on.

Our investigative team has many talents and have solved many high profile cases which, include but are not limited to false allegations of criminal threats, false allegations from a spouse of domestic violence, false allegations of assaults on police officers, false allegations of assault & battery cases, false allegations of perjury, false allegations of resisting arrest and the list goes on!  Why?  Well, like I said earlier we do everything from XYZ and if you can trust us to handle your case we will provide viable results to the best of our ability.  Do we win every case?  Absolutely not, however, we may get the charges reduced or we can minimize criminal charges, and institute damage control.  Our clients include a host of celebrities in where the strictest of all investigations are kept confidential and we make sure the paper trail is confidential as well. Why should you hire us?  Well, simply said we win!  Moreover, we are friendly, logical and have the ability to reason out cases very easily.  Our network is far reaching and our resources are never ending with provable results.

We consult real judges, real district attorneys, we speak to court clerks by cell phone, we have all kinds of inside action which you wouldn’t believe.  Is it legal?  Absolutely, we have friends everywhere, including City, County State and the Federal government.  Remember, we are professionals so we have access to a wide amount of information at any given time dependent on what exactly the information consists of, which includes all public outlets for information.  As a Private Investigator, we are highly sought after due to our high skills, practical experience, training and education.  We are very serious about what we do on every single case.  If you’re an attorney and you’re looking to hire a Private Investigator you came to the right place, after all you do want to win don’t you?  Of course, you want to win everyone does.  However, the first step is to call us and let us know what type of case you have.  We can tell you in a matter of seconds if we can take on your case.  Yes, there are a few cases we will not take due to our high standards and or cases in where our Private Investigators will be faced with imminent danger.  As an example we will not go deep in the Country of Mexico to fetter out the drug cartel, we will leave that to law enforcement. Again, we handle nearly all cases from XYZ but we do have to face reality.

When it comes to investigations our spirit is to win, yes we are in it to win it and you’ll clearly see we are friendly and will take the necessary steps to help you be stress free in all that we do.  Yes, we will answer the phone and will return your calls as soon as possible.  The last thing we do is ignore our clients, we give them full attention as necessary and will fulfill our obligations.  Yes, we do go to court in order to fight for our clients, so we may be off the phone for a little while but we always check our messages and contact our clients as soon as possible.  Just give us a call and let us know how we can help you and even if you think you do not have a chance of winning let us help you make that decision.  We have seen cases in where people thought they were doomed and sure enough we pulled it off where they saved thousands of dollars.  Give us a call or email us…let us help you be stress free!

FINANCIAL CRIMES

Financial Crimes

Financial crimes are growing by the numbers in the time of the baby boomers!  Our statistics are showing more and more cases being dealt with across the country with more victims being counted everyday.  It seems as though the elders who worked very hard throughout their long lives are being duped out of their savings by not only loved ones but also the criminal element as well. Many seniors have been stricken by the onset of dementia or other debilitating illnesses in where housekeepers, caretakers, butlers, gardeners, window washers, family members or whomever have found crafty ways to take advantage of them over long periods of time.  There are many ways in where a thief may take advantage of such a person, and the person does not necessarily have to be a senior.  Yes, it could be anyone of any age, however, certain laws apply to certain ages.  Meaning, the laws set forth may have an age limitation in order for the law to apply.  Of course, all states are different and so forth but generally speaking they are pretty much written the same.

If you ever wondered how some of these so called thieves take advantage of such people it is relatively simple.  What we mostly see is in the form of personal checks and or business checks which are written in the excess of what they are being paid for and or a forgery of the check or checks.  Once the thief is forging checks as an example it becomes common place and greed sets in and they keep writing and or signing the checks more frequently until the account or accounts are tapped.  If the senior is elderly and has a lapse of memory and or has dementia as an example the thief believes he or she cannot be prosecuted.  The thief does not believe the senior will report the financial crime.  And, often times the thief will attempt to fool themselves believing what they did is not considered a crime and they will scathe the wrath of the police.  White collar financial crimes are not favored by the police or the local district attorney for that matter.  Well, that is until lately!  The police have become more educated along with the district attorney and they have been working vertically to prosecute such cases.  Remember the Bernard Madoff Ponzi Scheme?  Well, he too my friends is a convicted thief and was sentenced to 150 years in prison for his white collar financial crimes and he took billions through his own greed thinking he could get away with it.  So then, my point here is if you or a loved one is being bilked out of every red cent they have worked so hard for in life we can help you go after what is rightfully yours or your loved ones.

We will entrench ourselves in your case, the police are generally busy and do not have the time or resources to dig deep.  These cases have to be handled very discreetly and with great precision on every level. In order to recover, we have to reduced words to paper and build a case from the onset of when the financial crime occurred.  Going backwards in order to do so is easier said than done.  We have the patience to do just that, and yes it is time consuming in order to get it right but once we get the boulder moving there is no stopping it.  If you  have an attorney have him or her call us right away to set up and appointment to get things started.  The longer you wait the more difficult the case becomes, and truth be told these cases have been known to go on for years and years without the culprit/s being identified and or prosecuted.  It is time to make the change and start taking action on what is right in life and put pen to paper and get these cases to the district attorney in order to file these cases.  So, no matter how small or large the case is we can certainly help you become stress free and do everything possible to assist you on a professional level.  Make the call today and let us stress for you!  855-342-3300

In all fairness, on the other hand, if you or if you know of someone who has been wrongfully accused of doing something similar and you would like us to represent you please feel  to call us as we are open to  hear what you have to say.  Financial crimes are not easy and not all accused are actually guilty of such crimes, there are people who are down right innocent and we like to say the scales of justice will prevail, however, we do know of many cases in where although the finger pointed to one person it was later found it was not that named person but an unsuspecting person who would be later charged with the actual crime, thus, the named person was exonerated.  Anyway, you get the point…but you have to make the call!

Phoenix Cop Murdered, Second Cop Wounded

Phoenix cop murdered, second cop wounded in a shootout with a violent felon during an undercover operation.  A Phoenix Police Officer, returned fire killing the suspect dead!  One officer has succumbed to his injuries and the other is listed in critical condition.  At the time of this article, it is unclear what the officers were investigating or what spurned the shooting other than the suspect was running on foot in an alley way when he turned on two plainclothes officers and started shooting.  The officer returned fire with one officer blasting the suspect out of his shoes where he fell dead in the alley.  The names of the officers have not been released as of yet.  Our prayers are with the officers involved and for their families and the Phoenix Police Department.  Please see the videos the Phoenix Police Department has provided.

Please remember to wear your vest and always be ready locked and loaded for such incidents!  Life on the street today in the year 2014 is tougher than ever and you must be in good physical condition and ready for the threat of life or death every second of the day during your tour of service.  Lastly, never chase a suspect on foot alone…always have a partner there with you for back up.  We realize this is not always possible but if it is then wait for the back up and do it together…those people are always there to catch…they can’t help committing crimes and showing their faces every time you turn around… in other words…you will catch them later…under better circumstances…
