Our service area includes Harrison, Hancock, Pearl River, Stone and Jackson.  We will also venture outside of our zone depending on our clients' needs.  We have traveled as far as New Orleans and Mandeville Louisiana over to Mobile Alabama and up to Meridian Mississippi and over to McComb. 


We have been providing courthouse research and record retrieval to include criminal records, civil records, judgments, marriage records, liens as well as assets.  We know each of the courthouses in our coverage area and all the various ways to conduct the searches in order to provide accurate information.


We provide legal services to attorneys and individuals based on their needs in the way of asset location, judgment recovery, process service, courthouse filings and issuing of legal documents.  We also provide services to locate heirs, witnesses, defendants and plaintiffs and will sign up clients that are unable to come in to your office and obtain copies of documents needed for your case.  We conduct witness interviews and will obtain video or photos of vehicles involved in accidents, injuries to individuals or scenes where an incident occurred. 


If you have a judgment against an individual or company we can locate the assets in order for you to seize that property.  We also can have judgments assigned to us and can handle the collection of the assets for a percentage of the total judgment amount.


If you have any other needs that may not be listed please see our website at for additional services.
