Enhance Your Defense Team

The criminal defense investigation process begins the moment the attorney takes the case. As state and federal criminal defense investigation specialists, we assist our clients in many ways. AIS becomes part of the defense team, enhancing the legal process for lawyers and clients by performing the following services.

Criminal Records Analysis

We obtain and analyze all criminal records pertaining to the defendant, including the pre-sentence report (PSR) and any underlying offenses. This ensures that the PSR is correct, with a comparison report provided for your review. Some PSRs do not accurately report the defendant's criminal history, which can have a negative effect on detention and/or sentencing.

Defendant Interviews

Our team documents the defendant's perspective on, and involvement in, the alleged offenses, including whether the defendant can provide additional information to the government that might assist in a sentencing reduction. During any interview, we attempt to determine the identity of any confidential sources used by the government. Then we look into the background of those sources to determine the initial motivation for their cooperation.

Legal Documents

Mitigation Reports

Complete background checks are performed on the defendant, including their criminal, family, and medical histories. For medical history, we focus on any psychological treatment the defendant may have received.

Discovery Analysis

Our investigators will review all discovery evidence to ensure proper law enforcement procedures were followed during the investigation and apprehension of the defendant. We present this information to the client's attorney in a timely fashion.

Co-Defendant Criminal History

Criminal history searches will be conducted on any co-defendants in preparation for trial. This is very important to the defense counsel when cross-examining a cooperating co-defendant at trial.

Identify and Interview Witnesses

We seek out any potential witnesses to the crimes being prosecuted and conduct witness interviews. Based on their knowledge of the alleged offense, we determine the level of assistance any witnesses may be able to offer in the defense of the defendant, and document them for your review.
