Here’s everything you need to know!
Private investigators can expect to receive matters related to insurance fraud that require surveillance, witness interviews and canvassing.
For hearing attendance, you can expect to see cases related to foreclosure, evictions, collections, PIP, insurance, social security & disability, workers comp, and other general motions and calendar calls. View all of our services and practice areas.
If you aren’t familiar with something or not comfortable with a matter, please do not accept the assignment. See more about your ethical obligations below.
The number of matters we have in a given area fluctuates based on our clients’ needs.
We want to keep you busy and making money and in return we want you to provide our clients with excellent, professional service and to provide timely and detailed results.
It’s easy! Make yourself the “go to” person for that client by providing them with excellent service!
Build a relationship with them by going above and beyond of what’s needed, providing specific and a detailed account of what occurred, and provide results timely.
Always be professional, on time, and prepared.
If you treat these cases like they’re your own, clients will notice and you could become their “preferred” attorney.
If you want to be paid as an individual, we need your SSN for end of year 1099 reporting.
If you want us to pay your company/firm, you can use your FEIN or TIN.
To avoid the need to provide an I-9 (http://www.uscis.gov/i-9) which is required even for 1099 employees, we suggest you use your FEIN number and have your earnings made payable to your company’s name.
These clients are in highly regulated industries which means they have government agencies overseeing how they do EVERYTHING. How they manage third party providers is of critical importance to them. Reasonable diligence suggests that requiring a background check for third party contractors should be routine. Therefore, we need to do background checks for our clients.
That’s right! Because they said so!
We require a resume and proof of insurance. We will verify that you are licensed and eligible/in good standing. We will conduct a background check.
We will interview you to ensure you have the requisite number of years of experience and knowledge in the particular practice area(s).
We require a signed acknowledgment that you have read and agree to our Policies and Procedures and Best Practices.
We may also require other client specific requirements.
Please also visit our Compliance Resources page for additional information.
