Background Investigations

We encounter persons and companies which we are considering interacting with. Before this is done, it is usually a good idea to know the background of that person or company. Not knowing the background can hurt you both personally and financially. There are a number of benefits to knowing the background of those with who you will exercise a level of trust. This could be the vetting of a prospective business partner, a person of interest in a legal action, or the person that you are involved with in a long-distance relationship. These and other instances dictate that you be well informed of the background of an individual or company.

We can conduct comprehensive background investigations which can give you the information needed to make an informed decision. We can gather all the information that you might need in most instances so you can make an informed decision.

When filing out the background forms it is vital to be truthful with every question asked, failure to do so is grounds for removing the candidate from consideration. They may be terminated if they have already been hired. Remember, there are 2 types of false statements, commission and omission. Commission is providing false or misleading information whereas omission is failing to put down information. It is not unusual for an applicant to be removed from consideration because they concealed particular information on the background forms. However, the information that they were trying to hide would not have been cause to remove them from consideration. The act of concealing it however was cause.

Agencies may require applicants to undergo a psychological examination and/or a polygraph exam.

I am always satisfied that the assignment I have given Richard Hogan has been carried out fully and to, if not beyond, my expectations. Since meeting him, he has been my sole source for private detective and process work.

Erica Minchella | Attorney at Law

I was very impressed with the work Richard did for me. As an Attorney, I require skill and experience when utilizing detective services for clients. Richard has been thoughtful and intelligent in the work he has done for me, and I will continue to utilize his services. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone that he may be of help.

Michael Gunderson | Attorney at Law

We needed an immediate process server to assist us in the Chicago area and being that we are out of state, Mr. Hogan successfully delivered as promised — especially the day before Thanksgiving and in rush-hour traffic! Both he and Tina were very professional from start to finish and even followed-up with us after the job was completed. We are very grateful for their quick turnaround and highly recommend them. We will definitely contact them for all our needs
