Criminal Defense Investigators – Local in Orange County
Felonies or Misdemeanors – We Help Criminal Defense Attorneys WIN Their Case!
Sexual Assault, Child Abuse and Domestic Violence
Assault with a Deadly Weapon (ADW), Manslaughter and Murder Cases
Kudaka Investigations specializes in local felony criminal defense investigations in Orange County and Irvine. We help attorneys convince the Court there is not a sufficient amount of evidence to justify holding the defendant responsible for the allegations.
Investigation for the Defense can be especially challenging. To win the case frequently requires not only a solid legal strategy, but also the ability to uncover evidence that refute the charges against the defendant. Obtaining critical statements from reluctant, hard-to-locate witnesses can also be taxing.
No matter what the nature of the case is – Sexual Assault and Battery, Child Abuse and Neglect, or Domestic Violence – Kudaka Investigations works with you as your partner for a successful and favorable outcome for your client. Our strategy and approach entails a meticulous and thorough investigation. We uncover evidence and obtain complete statements from victims, witnesses, defendants and suspects; as well as detect and uncover discrepancies and inconsistencies during the course of an interview.
Not only do we have the ability to develop contacts and sources of information and connect intervals of time and actions; we are experts at collecting, processing, identifying and classifying evidence to support your case. Kudaka Investigations are also Certified Paralegals that are experts in conducting meticulous and thorough legal research, a crucial aspect of leading a successful criminal defense investigation.
Kudaka Investigations will prepare a detailed investigation report outlining the course of the entire investigation. We will also provide accurate, credible testimony in Court proceedings to further strengthen your case.
How We Help You WIN Your Case
Some investigators are more thorough than others. Many current private investigators take a pretty standard or “uniform” approach to sexual assault cases. We pride ourselves in taking a strategic approach to deliver superior results that give the criminal defense attorney a competitive advantage:
- Thorough Case Review and Preparation
We confer with the Defense Attorney to identify the preliminary defense strategy.
After we conduct a thorough investigative review of the discovery files (police reports, victim/witness statements, crime scene examinations, lab reports, etc.),
Kudaka Investigations will prepare a clear investigative outline to define the direction of the investigation.
- Locating and Interviewing Persons of Interest
Interviewing the Defendant is always handled in a professional manner. We have the natural ability to build rapport with the Defendant, and convey the element of confidentiality. We strategically and systematically steer the interview to get their cooperation to ensure a successful investigation.
- Careful Examination of the Crime Scene or Situation
We use advanced technology to carefully examine and analyze the crime scene with diagrams and photographic/video evidence. We gather and process the evidence to recreate the event in question, and further strengthen the defense strategy.
- Legally Effective Victims/Witnesses Interviews
Obtaining statements from victims and witnesses is an art. Kudaka Investigations provide a sympathetic, gentle, “womanly approach” that victims/witnesses can relate to on a more personal level. Majority of victims and witnesses in sexual assault cases are women. Given the nature of the case, these women respond better with female investigators. Kudaka Investigations are experts in dealing with these types of sensitive matters, and with their legal and investigative experience, are able to gain respect and cooperation of victims and witnesses in order to record accurate, concise and detailed statements. Every statement will be carefully scrutinized and compared to original statements made to law enforcement and the D.A. for any discrepancies and inconsistencies.
In addition, Kudaka Investigations will conduct comprehensive background investigations of all defendants, victims and witnesses prior to the interviews.
- Professional Preparation, Documentation and Delivery of Court-Ready Evidence
As the investigation progresses, we will work closely with the Attorney in preparation for trial. Every piece of evidence will be handled with care and discretion, and documented in a compelling fashion to ensure a favorable outcome. All of our clients will be provided with a detailed, court-ready report contained with all evidence and data gathered and obtained through the course of the investigation.
- Expert Testimony
Kudaka Investigations also provide courtroom testimony to substantiate our findings. Our legal background and experience strengthens our ability to deliver credible testimony, and handle interrogation by the opposing counsel and present the best defense under cross examination.
