What We Can Do For You

Criminal Investigations

Casale Associates' specializes in solving crimes and getting law enforcement involved by presenting a completed investigation. Law enforcement agencies typically won't cooperate with outsiders unless they know you "speak their language" having been one of them. We will package a complaint that will be accepted and thoroughly investigated by law enforcement. When they receive a professionally investigated case that is “bow tied” and all they have to do is independently verify the facts and put the “handcuffs” on the perpetrator everything flows seamlessly. 

 

Our talent, experience and analytic skills are an asset to you. We gather evidence, statements and, most importantly, identify sources and motive for allegations of wrongdoing. We also assist clients and their legal team when appearing before police or federal law enforcement.

Let’s say it at the top getting the police to consider a criminal complaint when the victim is involved in a parallel civil action is often tricky business. The police have broad powers whether or not to investigate an alleged crime.  On one hand the police are obligated to protect the rights and interests of crime victims. On the other hand the police often views their involvement with a victim in a corresponding civil action as unfairly providing advantage to one side over the other. While it is difficult to say how often complaints are not officially recorded or victims dissuaded from filing a complaint, it is safer to say the problem exist and there is little a victim can do. 

 

A growing trend has law firms retaining detective agencies to independently gather evidence and record statements to establish reasonable cause to have the police investigate an allegation of criminality.  This line of reasoning is supported in law.  Detective agencies are empowered by statue to conduct investigations for the purpose of obtaining information with reference to any crime or wrongs done or threatened and securing evidence to be used before any authorized investigating committee, board of award, board of arbitration, or in the trial before a civil or criminal court.  

 

There is nothing unreasonable in lobbying police to get the weight of government to do the bidding and tip the scale in the victims’ favor. Using detective agencies shouldn’t matter if the facts alleged prove truthful and the motive is believable even though the victim’s own welfare and interest may appear to come before those of the state.  

 

One situation should be treated the same way that another situation is treated and the court agrees.  The government develops simultaneous criminal and civil actions against defendants.   The defendant can ask the court to stay the civil case while the criminal case proceeds to avoid choosing between perjury and damaging inference.  

 

The involvement of independent detectives never undermines the integrity, professionalism and dedication of the police. The bottom line is criminals must be prosecuted if for no other reason than to stop them from going on to commit more crimes and this makes the most sense.

 

Neutrality never favors the victim of a crime .
