Many people have experienced the heartache of losing touch with a loved one. We have access to databases that allow us to conduct a wider search than most individuals can accomplish on their own.

Locating witnesses is also vitally important when validating your side in a dispute such as a car accident, a slip or fall, or any of the many other kinds of accidents that occur. Witness location is particularly essential in situations where the information a witness can provide might significantly benefit a client with the presentation of their case in court.
Surveillance & Security
Witness preparation & protection, audio & camera device sweeps, conflict resolution
Surveillance is often a necessary step in gathering factual information to corroborate a client’s legal claim. We prepare video evidence and factual eyewitness accounts in court-ready documents to provide an unbiased account of what was witnessed.
Preparing witnesses so that they know what to expect in a legal proceeding is also essential because it allows them to feel comfortable in Court and enables them to provide a more confident and stronger witness account in support of your case.
Protecting a witness may also be necessary at times; a task Zonta Research takes seriously and carries out with tact. Any witness that requires protection will be looked after with care and securely protected so that they feel safe.
Invasion of privacy is an all too common threat, whether it takes place in our homes or in our businesses. Audio and camera sweeps can determine whether or not there are any hidden devices intruding upon your privacy (audio or video) and allow for removal of the device or devices.

Our conflict resolution officers bring an unbiased perspective to the table and create a safe environment that allows both sides to air their differences and assist them in solving their differences.
