Client Testimonials

I was very pleased with every aspect of dealing with this company. I spoke with two people and both were very helpful and willing to spend the needed time with me. I had a deadline sensitive job to be done and they promptly took it to task and had the needed information from 1977 within 3 days. I would highly recommend Able Legal Investigations Inc to anyone. Thank you Howard and Elizabeth. — John Shuflin

Asset Search And Recovery

Able Legal Investigations’ multi jurisdiction asset searches include link analysis, fund traces, hidden asset searches and analysis of fraudulent transfers, as well as investigative techniques to generate additional leads.

Multi Jurisdictional Asset searches are used not only in bankruptcy and defaulted debt situations, but also in divorce cases where substantial family wealth is being divided between two parties and other family law cases.

Frequently Asked Questions in Asset Search Inquiries

What information do you need to initiate an asset search?

Able Legal Investigations needs the name, address, social security number and date of birth at minimum to initiate an asset search. Also desirable are names of family members, names of current and prior companies and geographical locations where the subject has lived, as well as any background information in your files, e.g., financial statements, tax returns, loan documents, depositions, travel and expense reports, etc. Able Legal Investigations is also interested in any information on international travel or copies of a passport. Added information reduces the cost of the asset search investigation.

My client has already lost a great deal of money. Does it make sense to incur additional expense searching for possible hidden assets to satisfy the judgment?

Able Legal Investigations works in a phased approach. Phase I, conducted at minimal expense, develops financial information on the subject and his family members, current activity, life style and resources in the U.S. Bank account assets located in the U.S. are frozen through a restraining notice, whereupon the client’s attorney can have the sheriff levy on the accounts. Even if these findings are under $50,000, they can provide funding for Phase II investigation, which should be initiated only if there is strong reason to believe assets are secreted in other states or offshore. Penetrating offshore bank accounts is generally costly; however, the staged approach can give strong indications early in the case if assets are secreted elsewhere, before large amounts of money are expended.

What does an asset search cover?

Our asset searches look for real and personal property, interests in properties and business activities, and other financial and business assets, including bank accounts, safe deposit boxes, stocks, bonds, accounts receivable, royalties, patents, etc. Additionally, we examine assets of spouses and family members for possible transfers, and corporations associated with the subject and his/her partners. We identify individuals or entities that can provide leads and directions through a scrutiny of the individual’s life style, litigation history and relationships in order to discover hidden assets.
