DEFENSE INVESTIGATIONS

(Criminal)

Title IX Defense Investigations 

Sexual Abuse Defense Investigations

Matrimonial & Family Law Defense Investigations

Courts have come a long way in changing the way domestic violence cases are handled.

Legislative activity and changes in court administration have been effective in addressing some of the obstacles faced by litigants as they navigate the court system.

 

Domestic violence almost always impacts child custody.

 

If a spouse is abusive to a child or to another person in front of the child, that spouse is less likely to gain custody of the children.

 

It can dramatically hurt the abusive spouse’s custody chances even if the domestic violence occurs away from or without the children’s knowledge.

 

If your spouse has been abusive, gathering evidence of his or her behavior can help sway the court in your favor when it determines custody.

More importantly, If your spouse accuses you of abusive or violent behavior  you need to gather evidence in the instant matter and demonstrate your innocence to police officers, the district attorney and the the court.

 

Judges can order that a professional supervise all visitation periods and prohibit overnight visitation.

 

The judge can also help protect the abused parent by ordering that all exchanges of children take place in a public place, like a police station. 

 

A court may also terminate the abuser’s visitation altogether and award full custody to the other parent.

  • George Soros' ex girlfriend, Adriana Ferreyr, lost her temper at her former flame.​

  • Stephanie Seymour and billionaire Peter Brant divorce turned into a tabloid show.​

  • High-powered Manhattan Lawyer Cleared of Wife-beating Charges.

  • U.S. District Court for New Jersey approved Casale Associates to be defense investigators in a death penalty case.

It's all about finding mistakes and holes in the prosecution's case and uncovering evidence and witnesses which will refute their claims.

This is established by experience, knowledge and the quality of being  tenacious:. ​

  • Sexual Assault Defense Investigations

  • Director & Officers Defense Investigations

Many are quick to condemn law enforcement agents, police & correction officers and forget they, too, are entitled to be presumed innocent and do not have to make a statement as to their actions.

 

Most importantly, they have the same equal rights under the United State Constitution.

Cops aren't the scapegoats for problems Americans refuse to come to grips with like, violence, racism, drugs and corruption. We ask a lot of these young men and women recruited from our communities to boldly serve us and put their lives in harm's way.

 

No one should die in custody, and law enforcement should be held to a higher standard because so much more is expected of them.

 

Nonetheless, police actions must be viewed in an affirmative light --- dramatically different from a citizen getting involved --- especially, when using deadly physical force. 

 

Casale Associates provides investigative, consulting and expert witness services to the law enforcement community in criminal and civil rights defense cases, as well as, administrative hearings.  

We are proud to support police officers, troopers, agents and correction officers.

The motive is always money. 

Often heirs file probate documents to conduct discovery and some file probate lawsuits to try to find the answers to these questions. Some family members or beneficiaries who believe that they have been wronged make allegations of fraud.  For those that believe a person exerted undue influence, a lawsuit is typically brought against that person who is allegedly guilty. For those that wonder where all the money could have gone, they hire a private detectives and forensic accountants to conduct financial discovery and learn where the  assets disappeared to. 

 

To prevail at trial the plaintiff  must prove the particular acts of fraud with documents, testimony and other evidence from which a probate court judge can see who committed the fraud and how they were cheated. 

The heir or beneficiary who files the fraud lawsuit, or who contests a will, or objects to a will based upon fraud, needs to have a reasonable basis for bringing the probate lawsuit.  Undue influence is a species of fraud and must be proven by demonstrating acts of duress, force, or over-persuasion. Fraud must be alleged or pled in a lawsuit for wills or estates with what is referred to as “particularity”….which means specificity.
