Surveillance & Fraud Investigations
Acquiring the admissible evidence and unbiased facts you need.
Our investigation experience and capabilities include:
Fraud costs the insurance industry — and its customers — upwards of $150 billion each year. We know how to prevent it, detect it, and help prosecute it. Our Fraud Investigation Unit is exceptionally diverse and well trained, staffed with the best and brightest professionals from federal, military, state, and local investigation and law enforcement agencies — as well as an unsurpassed track record of success in civil and insurance fraud cases. In addition, each surveillance investigator is careful to make sure that all surveillance information is legally obtained. After all, what's the value of relevant findings if those findings can't be used in court?

Our experienced legal investigators understand the special needs that trial prep demands and never frown upon that 5 p.m. call.
Need a reliable service partner to prepare and serve thirty trial subpoenas by tomorrow? Do you have a big trial in a week and no time to tell us what you need? Just call Roman! We will rush to your site, review your entire case file, and provide you with a detailed list of trial preparation recommendations for your approval.

Multiline Claims Investigation
Let our hands-on experience and expertise work to your advantage.
Our top-tier investigators perform multi-line claims investigations on an as-needed and where-needed basis. Each of our experienced staff members goes through a thorough internal training program that enhances their familiarization with policy coverage, exclusions and endorsements. As a result, we are better able to identify and collect information and evidence which can mitigate damages and enhance your position. Our employees are also educated in the management of background investigations, surveillance and undercover operations, further complemented by years of practical claims experience.
Our multi-line capability provides our clients with the convenience and efficiency of a one-source solution. We investigate claims in all of the following areas:
Worldwide Witness Location
The more time it takes to get your case to court, the greater the chances that your witnesses will move or become difficult to contact.
Some witnesses want to be lost and purposely go underground or leave the area to avoid testifying or giving a statement. We can locate just about any person, nationwide or worldwide, no matter how long they have been missing. We utilize a network of data sources and other technology to uncover the current address or last known whereabouts of a potential witness. You can rely upon our witness location experts to conduct each search aggressively and professionally to find the people you need.
Our multilingual capability can make a world of difference.
We pride ourselves on speaking our clients language — and our clients’ customers’ language too! Very few investigative firms offer multi-lingual service — and ours is one of them. We can speak — and work — in Spanish, Russian, Polish, Caribbean dialects, French, Italian, Albanian, and Mandarin Chinese. Our ability to “talk the talk and walk the walk” with regard to language and cultural nuances helps us to serve our clients more effectively. Plain and simple: nothing gets lost in translation.
The “Secrets” of Our Success
Outstanding performance in this critical and sensitive area is too important to be left to chance — so it isn't.
By deploying the following, each Roman & Associates Field Surveillance Unit is literally well equipped to succeed:
Continual GPS monitoring verifies the integrity of each investigation. In fact, we are the only investigation company that utilizes an exclusive and proprietary encoded and encrypted GPS signal to ensure investigator case compliance. We are able to determine the location and case assignment of every Roman & Associates field investigator in real time, not only in the U.S., but throughout the world.
"We cannot become so numb to these attacks that our guard begins to slip, that our sense of awareness starts to fail." Roman said.
