How It Works
Prescient’s team of experts utilizes decades of law enforcement and forensics experience to uncover hidden or inconspicuous evidence that can shift a case in your favor. With the ability to provide metadata captures, we are scrupulous in preserving the chain of custody and ensuring information is legally admissible.
A global law firm was representing a client who was being sued by an individual for lost income stemming from an automobile accident. This individual claimed the firm’s client was at fault for the accident, and that the injuries he sustained had prevented him from traveling overseas to execute business deals resulting in the loss of millions of dollars.
Standard public records checks uncovered legal cases and civil suits involving the subject, but no adverse information was uncovered. Further open source research did not discover any social media profiles for the subject, although profiles were found belonging to several members of his immediate family.
Photos on their profiles showed the subject on vacations and business trips in Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. Our analysts then used the latest eDiscovery tools to capture metadata and ensure court-admissible findings were presented to the client.
Our social media investigators were able to assist a global law firm in uncovering a case of disability fraud. Prescient’s analysts captured court-admissible insights that allowed the firm to undercut the plaintiff’s assertions and successfully execute a legal strategy to protect their client.
