Criminal Defense Investigator

“A lawyer’s performance in the courtroom is responsible for about 25 percent of the outcome; the remaining 75 percent depends on the facts.” Melvin Belli
(7/29/1907 – 7/9/1996)
Every competent legal defense is grounded in hard evidence, whether witness testimony, forensics, or expert testimony.  For a defendant and the defense counsel, obtaining this evidence is crucial in mounting any reasonable defense in a court of law.
                   W.A. Monroe & Associates Investigations
of California, is one of the nation’s fastest rising criminal defense investigative firms.  Our firm specializes in investigating, and assisting counsel in preparing criminal cases through the preliminary-hearing process and/or through jury trails. We pride ourselves on our continued success in proving the innocence of our clients, and by providing irrefutable evidence to overturn and or significantly reduce convictions in appellate courts. We are experts in providing proof of innocence or uncovering reasonable doubt for defense attorneys and pro-se clients. This often culminates in full acquittals or reduced sentences for our clients.

W.A. Monroe & Associates Investigations has investigated well over 50 criminal cases since 2008. We are experienced in criminal, civil and domestic legal matters.  We have provided criminal defense investigations in both State and Federal court matters, conducted personal injury and other civil investigations, and have provided video and still photographic evidence for use in domestic matters such as divorces and child custody hearings. 

Our success with our attorney clients can be directly contributed to the fact that we understand that attorneys can have a great understanding of the law.  They can be artful and skilled in the courtroom.  We know that the experienced trial lawyer understands that their cases are ultimately only as good as the facts gathered by a skilled investigator. Those are the attorneys that win cases repeatedly.
“A good investigator is generally more valuable to a defendant’s case than a good lawyer.” F. Lee Bailey
Our attorney clients contact us first upon taking on a case; they know that our investigators have an intimate understanding of the law, and of criminal procedure.  Our investigators possess a deep knowledge of statutory and case law, local rules of court, civil procedures, forensic sciences, techniques of evidence collection, its preservation, and admissibility.
