Law Firm Services

For law firms, we specialize in helping identify and locate hard-to-find witnesses or defendants. That’s what sets us apart. Attorneys everywhere call us when they are involved in civil litigation cases that require due diligence before filing personal injury, wrongful death, wrongful terminations, sexual harassment, discrimination, child abuse and child molestation claims. We also specialize in locating and interviewing those hard to find witnesses and identifying assets. We take pride in aggressively seeking the truth and justice for all. These are Rampart Group tenets.
