What's The Alternative?

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, February 20, 2015, In : Process Serving 


I was recently discussing serving papers with a client and they asked, "What happens if you don't serve them the first time?" I was happy to say that we usually get our serves on the first attempt :) but when someone is evading there are other means of Alternate Service of Process.

When there are problems serving, such as being unable to locate the party or when the party is evading service, the court can allow other methods for alternate service. The process server, when there is an unsuccess...

What Was Your Last Meal Like? Maybe They Need A Mystery Shopping Investigation!

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, February 13, 2015, In : Mystery Shopping Investigations 


Do you have a favorite restaurant here in town? You know the place, where it's usually great and then one day you get awful service? Or maybe it's a change of management?

I know just the thing! Yesterday I had one of the worst meal experiences in a local Tempe restaurant which is part of a small local chain. I love going to this restaurant, just not the Tempe location.

Is My Neighborhood Safe? Checking The Calls For Service Report

Posted by Christine Burke on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, In : Background Checks 


A few months ago a client was talking about moving and wanted my input on "safe areas of town".

I also recommended that he check any particular address, for a home he was seriously interested in buying, with the local police department.

Yesterday, I heard an ad on th...

Is This Relationship Real?

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : Background Checks 


Recently I have seen advertisements for several Dr. Phil shows which discuss "phantom" or "scam" relationships. Usually it involves a lover that is out of the country and the "victim" is the party that is here in the states who truly believes that this relationship exists. During the course of the "courtship" the victim sends money and property over to the "beloved" while putting up with excuse after excuse as to why they are delayed in meeting. Typically these relationships arise through soc...

Can You Help Me With My Insurance Claim?

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : Insurance Investigations 



Yes, we can! Don't just take "no" for an answer!

In trying to have an insurance claim paid, it can be a big fight depending on what company you are dealing with, what claims representative you get, the circumstances involved and how much money is on the line.

Take it from me, who just recently had to fight her own battle. And, I used to work for an insurance company - I knew what they were telling me was not right and I continued to move forward until my claim was taken care of properly.
