A Dogged Investigator

Posted by Christine Burke on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, In : criminal defense investigations 


Yep, I'll take the analogy, of course I love dogs!!!

No really, I have been called a "dogged investigator" and "like a dog with a bone" with relation to my investigative style. I take that as praise and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Recently, that canine comparison came to a head on a criminal investigation. We had heard rumors of a similar incident where it may have been a false report, which would certainly help our current case. Nothing like a "crying wolf" witness to add lack of credibi...

Honoring Small Business Week 2015

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, May 8, 2015, In : Workplace Investigations 


Are you a small business owner? Congratulations on investing in your idea and yourself!

One of the considerations when opening your business is the fact that you can't do it all yourself and you are not a specialist in all areas.

A good investigative agency may be a resource for you in areas such as background checks for employees, partners and potential clients, due diligence, computer forensics and security processes, mystery shopping and employee investigations.

We hope that it never comes to...

Green Light Your Defense Investigation

Posted by Christine Burke on Friday, April 3, 2015, In : criminal defense investigations 

There's nothing worse than a stagnant investigation, where all you are seeing are red light and stop signs, be it insurance defense or criminal defense. Work with us and get the green light, literally. We were recently able to assist in a criminal defense investigation by locating and understanding the traffic signal pattern. 

Did you know that the signals are timed and that certain lanes get certain signals depending on traffic conditions and time of day? We did! That's why we requested the t...

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.

The best part of knowing a chain restaurant is supposed to be consistent service at all locations and knowing that your favorit...

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.

If you ...

Posted by Christine Burke on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, In : child custody investigations 


"My custody arrangements are not fair!" 
and "Can you get me evidence for my custody hearing? are two things that we hear quite a bit about.

Whether your divorce has been finalized or you are currently involved with divorce proceedings, you may wish to consider hiring an investigator. There are many ways that we can help.

Recently we assisted with a custody investigation to verify assertions made by one parent regarding availability for child care and stated current job responsibilities. Our cli...

Job Applicants and Due Diligence

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, January 19, 2015, In : Workplace Investigations 


Are you in charge of your hiring? Have you really reviewed your job application and hiring process to ensure you are asking the right questions?


Not too long ago I was at a client site for a workplace investigation. Unfortunately they had an issue and we were looking at several employees to attempt to determine if they were involved. 

In reviewing one employee's application, we found that they had been "let go" from a past employer and many dates of employment only listed the years and not the ...
