One of the most important elements of successful criminal defense work is having an experienced legal investigator on your defense team as soon as possible. Not all criminal cases require the services of a professional defense investigator. However, in the cases that do, the defense investigator is a vital member of the defense team. Once your client is suspected/investigated (Pre-File Stage), arrested or charged with a crime, an experienced Criminal Defense Investigator should be developing intelligence and securing potential witnesses and or evidence before too much time has passed.
Even before the discovery documents are received from the prosecution, your defense counsel is trusted with re-investigating the law enforcement investigation to ensure it was done legally, thoroughly and fairly. That task by itself can often be meticulously time consuming and overwhelming. This should not be performed without the assistance of a Criminal Defense Investigator.
In order to effectively defend the accused, the Defense Investigator must have the training and experience empowering him or her to distinguish where any law enforcement oversights, deviations or omissions have occurred to ensure that all established procedures were followed during the law enforcement investigation. The Defense Investigator must talk to all witnesses; analyze all the evidence (including physical, video/audio/photographic, etc.) that is compiled by the prosecution. The Defense Investigator must have the knowledge and expertise to effectively perform these interviews. This can only occur if the Defense Investigator is familiar with the explicit details of the case, is calculated when utilizing their interviewing techniques & methodologies and is Astute in recognizing body language/Kinetics during the interview process.
