Don’t Cross the Line, You’re Bound to get Caught

Don’t Cross the Line, You’re Bound to get Caught


Often we receive phone calls with people asking us to do things that either clearly cross the line of what is legal, or push the boundary of what might be considered legal, but not moral. When I have spoken to people like this on the phone, including the rare private investigator, I politely turn them down and let them know that the price they would pay for the case is not worth the price I would […]

When the attorney asked us the types of cases we normally work on, the first thought I had was that we have yet to experience a “normal” case. His question sparked the idea to let our past, current and potential clients know on a more regular basis the types of cases that come to us each quarter. I will of course be vague and always leave out names and locations, but wanted to give an idea of cases that are […]
