It is indispensable for case management at any level of expertise and in any size office. Regardless of your area of practice, this is one tool you can't afford to be without.

This three-component forms-based package covers everything you need from new client intake, billable hours, legal research, a detailed investigation, through creating a comprehensive trial notebook if your case involves court.


The Investigation Workbook

The Investigation Workbook has been used as a stand-alone tool by private investigators and police officers across the country. It provides a complete "investigation in a box" to either assist your in-house staff with the complex details of a thorough investigation or to help you set specific parameters for any outside vendor.

"Case Management 101," with 9 sample forms from the "Investigation Workbook," is a small how-to guide for organizing a thorough, detailed and efficient investigation. In cases requiring an investigation one of two things usually happens. One, in-house staff usually does the bulk of the investigation, or two, the case is assigned to an outside investigator. If in-house staff is used, they'll need a set of detailed tools that will act as a fill-in-the-blank "case in a box" so they can complete a successful investigation. If an outside investigator is hired, they'll need established parameters and they'll also need tools that will ensure their professional image as they represent your firm in the course of their activities. In either event, the "Investigation Workbook" will be worth its weight in gold, and, like the "Trial Notebook" ebook, will save you several hours of prep time in organizing your investigation.
