Asset Investigator

Uncover the financial resources of a person or business.

Find out if a debtor has enough means to pay back money owed or is worth taking to court. If you already won a court judgment, discover if the debtor has assets that can be collected from.

For attorneys, an asset search is an important part of both pre-litigation and post-judgment investigation for your client. Find out early if a case is worth pursuing, and what can be collected during the judgment enforcement process.

Assets may include real property, business inventory, work income, intellectual property such as patents and trademarks, money owed, bank accounts, rental income, and vehicles.

I use a combination of proprietary database information, public records, personal inquiries and visits to properties if necessary, and other investigative methods to determine if a person or business has valuable resources.
