Expert Witness Background Check 

One cannot discount the influence of the “CSI Syndrome”, a term coined by prosecutors to describe the jury’s apparent insatiable need for hard science evidence, when truthfully, most trials cannot afford the time or cost of expensive forensic laboratory analysis.  Therefore, the expert witness' role is crucial in most trials. Gross Security, LLC conducts background investigations using the breadth as described above to establish the work history, education, and credentials. The conclusion is a comprehensive examination of the “expertise” of the expert witness. Are they published? Are they peer reviewed?

Alleged Victim Background Check

In any trial, civil or criminal, a good strategy for defense is to attack the charges, attack the evidence for admissibility, and to interview all witnesses. Does the victim have a history of these complaints? Is there some underlying reason for the lawsuit? Our background checks will validate the complainant’s position.
