WHAT IS YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR ATTORNEYS?
We are independent contractors who work with and not for you and/or your attorneys. We will consult with your counsel to assist in defining the scope of our work; but to maintain the integrity of the investigation and maintain independent working relationships, neither you nor your attorneys control the means, manner, or outcome of our work. This allows us to serve as a witness in a deposition or court proceedings, should it be necessary, which is a service your lawyer cannot provide if they were to conduct the investigation themselves. That is, your attorney cannot be your attorney and your witness.
WILL YOU TESTIFY EITHER IN DEPOSITION OR IN COURT?
YES. We testify either per any agreement we have with you or your counsel or pursuant to court order.
IS DILIGENCE, LLC A LAW FIRM?
NO. Although some of us are licensed attorneys or former practitioners, we do not provide legal representation or provide legal advice.
WILL YOU KEEP OUR INTERESTS CONFIDENTIAL?
YES. From the existence of our business relationship with you to the confidences shared throughout our investigation, we will maintain strict confidentiality, subject only to your express, written permission or in compliance with a court order. We will agree to enter into any reasonable confidentiality agreement. We will never advertise our client roster.
IS DILIGENCE, LLC COMMITTED TO ESTABLISHING A DIVERSE WORK FORCE?
YES. We are committed to fostering a company that reflects the rich diversity of our community and the clients we serve. This is at the heart of our core values. We embrace our distinct physical, mental, and emotional characteristics as well as traits and perspectives, believing that doing so makes us better. Every member of Diligence, LLC has a respected voice in within our group.
CAN YOU FORCE A PERSON TO SUBMIT TO AN INTERVIEW?
No. Your legal counsel can explain what options you may have in regard to an employee or contractor who refuses to be interviewed.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THE MONEY WE PAY YOU?
We consult with you, review the relevant documents, conduct the necessary interviews, and complete our report to provide you the answers you need. Expenses, including travel and lodging, are billed separately from our professional services.
