Locating clients, defendants, fugitives, heirs, and witnesses.

Locating clients, defendants, fugitives, heirs, and witnesses.

In the 1970’s, I began working for the federal government. I began generating cases involving subjects who committed an offense and fled the area. In many of those cases, I had to identify the violator, document the case, then set out to locate that individual. I particularly enjoyed locating and arresting fugitives. I continued locating and apprehending fugitives throughout my career. I was able to track fugitives as they travelled around the world and throughout various countries. When they travelled to a country where I knew we could have them extradited from, I would contact authorities in that country to have them arrested. I would contact the appropriate United States Attorney’s Office and have them initiate the Request for Provisional Arrest. In one case I was required to testify in a foreign court to satisfy that court’s request for extradition.

Since I retired from federal service, I have been asked by numerous clients and law firms to locate witnesses, defendants, heirs and even clients they had lost contact with. Many of those were time sensitive matters that had been assigned to others. Having decades of experience in such matters has given me some insight as to where to start my investigation. Some of the cases that others have failed to complete have been fairly straightforward. I accomplished some of those in hours. Others might take days depending on the subject, the location and the wishes of the client.

I routinely take on these types of cases and have enjoyed completing them to my client’s satisfaction.
