Witness Statements

The idea is that the witness will provide factual information about the situation or persons involved so that the judge or mediator can make a better-informed decision on the matter. These statements are most common in child custody, divorce, and settlement cases.

Examples of our Surveillance

The claimant alleges he is 100% disabled and can never work again.

While under surveillance, we videoed him working as a mechanic.

He is being paid cash under the table at his brother’s service garage.

The female claimant stated she could not drive. The insurance company was paying for the woman’s taxi rides to and from all medical appointments, plus to her place of employment & back home which was located 10 miles away.

The investigators document the claimant in the morning being driven by a taxi to her place of employment. Then at 5 pm, the taxi would drive the woman back to her residence.

At 6:30 pm, our crew documented the woman driving her own vehicle to different clothing stores.

The insurance company stopped the free taxi rides based on our video.

No charge for travel. Our coverage area is all of the state of Mississippi, and Mobile, AL.
We will travel farther if needed.
Surveillance is the art of waiting. If you wait long enough, your subject will be active.
