free evaluation

We will conduct a free evaluation of your specific case to give you an idea of what is involved in your particular case.

forensic report & documentation

Our clients receive a comprehensive report detailing the extent of our investigation, a genealogy chart that outlines the heirs and all documents used to support our conclusions. A notarized Affidavit of Due Diligence is also available upon request.


Sometimes a case can be solved in a few hours, but when the decedent had no children and had not been in touch with family members for decades, it can take considerably more time to identify possible extended family members. A minimum retainer will be determined on a case by case basis.
