Our Company Culture
We are investigative research. With concentrated practices in the legal, corporate, government, and technology sectors, we challenge the status quo at every opportunity. We do this through hard work, honesty, continuous innovation and passion. We spend a lot of time together, and in those late night or weekend sessions you really get to know someone. We have a great team.
Over the course of 39 years, we have been in the trenches (often literally) with numerous clients – from Am Law 100 firms to Fortune 100 and 500 companies, from prominent business leaders to the U.S. Department of Defense. Our clients have partnered with us for specific reasons: we listen, we are relentless, we deeply believe in what we do, we are personally committed to achieving a successful outcome, we hate to lose, and we love to win.
Outside of our day-to-day casework, we support our clients’ pro bono programs, our local community programs and our employee’s charitable passions. We have had the privilege of assisting counsel with a variety of challenging pro bono matters, including sex trafficking, international custodial kidnapping, and death penalty cases. We are also committed to giving back to the community, with gifts of both money and time. In the past year, we created the GiveBack Program, an innovative system that encourages employees to work directly with our chosen charities. As a result, our people have rolled up their sleeves and volunteered with a number of area organizations, including Annandale Village, HomeStretch, Special Pops Tennis, Lighthouse Family Retreat, and The Drake House.
Lastly, we love our country, and in recent years we have been honored to put our genealogical experience to use for the U.S. Department of Defense’s Past Conflict Repatriations Branch. The purpose of this program is to locate family members of the more than 83,000 American soldiers reported missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, and the 1991 Gulf War. By collecting DNA samples and comparing against evidence found at former battlefields, the military is able to identify long-missing soldiers and bring them home. The project requires archival research, intelligence collection, and extensive phone and email contact with soldiers’ family members. Partnering with the United States Military has been a true honor and has allowed us to sharpen our investigative skills while contributing to a noble mission.
