As a proud follower of the Component Method, with a certified completion of the Criminal Defense Investigator Training Council program, a member of the National Association of Public Defenders, and a member of the National Association of Investigative Specialists, Bellingham I S seeks to provide thorough and exhaustive investigations in search of evidence and information that has been ignored or missed. Our investigations reveal evidence, witnesses, facts, sources, and background information to assist in the defense of the accused, or the accused’s representative.
The US Constitution refers to, proscribes, and identifies the rights of those accused of crimes in multiple articles and sections. The 5th Amendment demands that “…No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury…nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…” The 6th Amendment gives the defendant the right to counsel and the Compulsory Process Clause. The 14th Amendment gives due process rights to all citizens. In order to have a fair trial, the accused must rely not only on attorney representation, but the facts, resources, and investigation skills to assist that attorney in developing the best possible defense. An experienced private investigator can help provide a quality defense.
It is important to keep in mind, that there is no “criminal” in a criminal defense investigation. There is only the defendant. The defendant is not a criminal just because he is charged with a crime. The defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty. Therefore, a thorough criminal defense investigation is used to deliver the accused his rights, his due process, his fair trial. This is always top of mind when we conduct our investigations at Bellingham I S. We are constantly reminded that our work can quite literally be a matter of life or death.
