Carlson Investigation Services is dedicated to providing thorough investigations in preparation of civil and criminal cases. We are professional, experienced, and tenacious and we are approved investigators for the Colorado Alternate Defense Counsel.
ADC attorneys have used our investigative services in part to help insulate themselves from later allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel asserted by a defendant in a 35C motion. Our investigations have also led to the dismissal of felony cases.
As former police detectives we are familiar with rules of evidence, search and seizure, and normal police procedures. We understand the complicated dynamics of criminal cases and will work with the attorney to identify areas of the case to be explored, crucial witnesses to be interviewed and possible violations of constitutional rights.
Our experience as police detectives includes investigating homicides, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, other major persons crimes, complex white-collar crimes, criminal impersonation and all types of narcotics crimes.
Some defense cases we have been involved in include:
- Vehicular Homicide and assault
- Attempted Murder
- Colorado Organized Crime Control Act (COCCA)
- Aggravated Robbery
- Aggravated Assault
- Child Abuse
- Sexual Assault on a Child
- Sexual Assault - Use of Force
- Sexual Assault - Victim incapable of Appraising Condition
- Pandering of a Child
- Securities Fraud
- Manufacturing and Distribution of a Controlled Substance
- Hit and Run
- Domestic Violence
- Forgery and other financial crimes
The results of the investigation and any additional information are provided to the attorney in clear, concise reports. Our testimony experience is extensive and we are very comfortable as advisory witnesses. Carlson Investigation Services also provides litigation support, process service and skip tracing.
