File Finders Criminal Advantage

                                             Unparalleled Accuracy and Transparency

Combining automated search processes and in-person court research is still the best option to ensure the most gets done in the shortest time possible.

When the San Diego Court removed DOBs from the criminal index, the court quickly became inundated with name and DOB search requests. Our proprietary automated search tool, In-Quest, eliminates the need for clerk-assisted name and DOB searches. In-Quest conducts standard, multi-configuration, and extended scope name and DOB searches. Our results are highly accurate, thorough, and fast.

We are in the courts. As the largest criminal research team in San Diego, we leverage our team size, in-depth knowledge of the court system, and amiable working relationship with the clerks to quickly and dependably deliver the information you need when you need it. Our in-house research team conducts daily in-person court research and document retrieval at multiple court locations.
