Synopsis: Ever wonder how civil litigators gather all those facts to convince a jury to award millions of dollars? Or perhaps you have wondered how they identify a successful theory of defense against the allegations of a civil lawsuit. The answer is simple: They hire a professional investigator.
Now--in the first book of its kind ever published--Ciolino and Castle have drawn on the expertise of the nation's leading legal investigators. This profession's universal belief--that justice must prevail, that in the sharing of information lies the key to ethical behavior and professionalism, and that the winning is in the doing. This ideology is what brought this group of thirty-seven authors together. Each is an expert in his or her chosen specialty. Together they have written the definitive book for those seeking education beyond the basics of legal investigation. Instantly access the most advanced techniques and knowledge of these investigators who have taken their craft beyond the norm.
