Cobra Investigations offers investigative support for the legal profession. If you are an attorney and require an investigation in connection with a civil lawsuit, criminal case or trial preparation, Cobra Investigations can assist you.
Often, legal investigations require locating a party to a lawsuit or a witness or serving that individual with a subpoena or other document.
In other instances, we can be helpful by running a background on parties to a lawsuit. The purpose here is to reveal facts that may be pertinent to the lawsuit, such as the existence of hidden assets, previous lawsuits, marital problems, criminal conduct, and the like.
Cobra Investigations will take extra steps to ensure that the investigation is thorough, such as finding witnesses and debriefing them, locating hidden and/or unidentified witnesses, checking the background of parties to the case, and obtaining signed statements.
Legal investigations sometimes involve Surveillance of witnesses or parties involved in a lawsuit. The information uncovered through this kind of detective work can expose the existence of fraud or reveal patterns of activity that may be useful to our attorney client.
Cobra Investigations always will provide you with an Investigative Report with the details of our findings.
In a DUI case, the prosecution must prove two main things: 1) the person being charged (the “defendant”) drove a vehicle and 2) at the same time, the defendant was “under the influence” — meaning that the person’s ability to drive safely was affected to an appreciable degree by drinking alcohol, taking a drug, or a combination of alcohol and drugs. A successful defense can be anything that proves one of these two elements wrong, and thus prevents the prosecution from proving its case. Our investigative specialists work with your attorney toward that precise goal.
Is the scientific process of investigating, analyzing, and drawing conclusions about the causes and events during a vehicle collision. Cobra Investigation’s reconstructionists conduct in-depth collision analysis and reconstruction to identify the collision causation and contributing factors in different types of collisions, including the role of the driver(s), vehicle(s), roadway and the environment. Our reconstructions are trained forensic engineers who, critically, also bring specialized law enforcement experience to the table.
The terms “domestic investigation” and “divorce investigation” are often used interchangeably and, indeed, a large percentage of our practice is devoted to this type of case.

However, also under this heading are investigations involving possible drug abuse, security in and around your home, caregiver background checks, stalking, child or elder abuse, etc. (see also, “Surveillance”, “Spousal Loyalty”, “Child Custody/Abuse”, “Drug Testing”, “Background Searches”, “Stalking/Harassment Cases”).

Depending on the situation, skip trace can involve many things:
Surveillance - Skip tracers may observe certain homes where the person being sought has been known to live.
Background checks - Skip tracers and private investigators wishing to apprehend a fugitive or debtor will often run background checks in order to figure out a targets past habits. In many cases, this can lead investigators right to their target.
Interviews and questioning - Cobra investigators will often speak with those who know a target well. They may try to convince a fugitive’s family that the fugitive should turn himself or herself in, or they may try to get acquaintances to simply slip up and reveal a targets whereabouts.
