We Get Results!

Our team has a combined total of over 100 years of experience in financial forensics research and judgment enforcement services, and we will work with you in a relentless pursuit to enforce your judgment.

Our clients frequently recover 100% of their judgments. Persistence pays. We recovered $42 million from a five-year-old embezzlement judgment. In a case where other attorneys and investigators had given up, Financial Forensic Services has located hidden assets and recovered $1.2 million plus an additional $300,000 in interest for its client. Successes for our clients over the past 50 years include hundreds of cases with recoveries ranging from a few thousand dollars to many millions of dollars.

Our professional forensics team combines talent, decades of experience, and special training to analyze and mine the documents, databases, and records in your case. The results lead to diverted assets, established patterns of activity, or reveal fraudulent transactions.

We will tailor a strategy specifically for your case.  Whether for financial investigation and/or judgment enforcement, you will have a dedicated team of forensic researchers, analysts, investigators, attorneys, forensic accountants, and computer specialists required to get the job done.

” I was prepared to dismiss a federal case involving millions of dollars against a local individual who claimed to have no substantial assets. After your staff hit the records and delved into the transactions behind the transactions, you discovered the individual to actually be worth a few million dollars. We continued the case to conclusion. We were also very happy with the financial background examinations you conducted of the former directors of two failed national banks. The heart of any civil case is whether there is a pot at the end of the lawsuit. You were our lucky leprechaun in finding such pots.”

“When I was general counsel for First Interstate Bank, I used Joe Dickerson for locating assets, investigating behavior and asset discovery. He did excellent work and always got the information I needed without compromising the bank in any way. He’s more thorough and kept in better touch with me than other investigators. I’d give him a grade of 96 or 97 out of 100.”

“As an environmental law firm, we use Joe Dickerson to locate prior business owners and do corporate genealogies. He is persistent, that’s the key to a good investigator, and he has a knack for understanding how people move money and do business. That tells him what rocks to look under. Joe is vastly superior to other investigators in two ways: he lets you know what’s going on and he’s honest with you, because he tells you if there’s really anything there worth pursuing. He is unusually thorough and creative finding people. Joe has earned his fee every time.” “If the information is to be found, then I believe that they will find it. Their service enabled me to do a much better job for my client.”
