As a value-added service, alias names uncovered during the research process are searched at no additional cost. Multiple configuration name searches are standard protocol. No extra fee for 10-year searches. A separate warrant search is conducted on hits, where available. Extensive multi-layer, multi-person QA process to ensure accurate reporting.

Whether you require document retrieval as part of your reporting requirements or require case copies to complete an audit or dispute, File Finders can quickly deliver.

Cleark Assisted Criminal Record Search - San Diego Only

This on-site countywide Felony and Misdemeanor search is done with the help of a clerk utilizing the court’s CMS (case management system).  This type of search is often used to research common names. In addition, a search through the court’s CMS can uncover criminal records filed under alias names and alias DOBs not provided by the applicant.  Turnaround time is same to next day for no record results.  Record information is returned within 1-2 business days.

Thank You!!

“I cannot say enough positive things about the experience we have had working with File Finders over the past couple of years. Their industry knowledge and expertise in the San Diego area shines through their stellar work-product. The work performed by Kim and her team is always of the highest quality while also providing excellent turn-around times. I would, and do, recommend them to anyone looking for a solution in what can sometimes prove to be a difficult area to perform court records checks. In this industry, it truly pays to have to have an expert team on your side, and File Finders is just that!” 

Fast and Reliable Turnaround

"I appreciate the fact that File Finders provides us with fast and reliable turnaround times and accurate results. The customer support we receive is responsive and friendly as well. I also appreciate the fact that File Finders does not need to be micro-managed as can be the case with other vendors when you push a lot of volume like we do. File Finders has been our primary vendor of choice for many years now for these reasons and more. They do not disappoint."

Prompt and Professional Research

"We’ve worked with File Finders for over 10 year and couldn’t be happier. They provide prompt and professional research, know their jurisdictional nuances intimately, and help us manage client expectation with proactive and reliable ETAs when there are delays. Their customer service is top notch and everyone operates with integrity, honesty and an eye toward accurate and thorough reporting."

reliable, accurate and prompt

"Our team began working with File Finders in 2007.  We have found them to be reliable, accurate and prompt.  One of the things I most appreciate about Kim is her knowledge of the court system and willingness to communicate the specific details of the search process with us.  This has allowed us to be able to fill in the gaps many times with our own clients when it comes to delays, errors, etc.  We look forward to many continued years with their team."
