Background Screening & Legal Support Services
At Global Verification Network, our investigative and legal experts understand how crucial it is for law firms and individual attorneys to have every piece of relevant information possible in hand to fully serve their clients’ interests.

Our belief is that, with an in-depth and meaningful attorney background check, attorneys can arrive in court, at mediation or settlement proceedings, and for discovery review sessions with full confidence that they have all available data essential to the case.
The investigative legal team at Global Verification Network leaves no source untapped — performing tasks that include surveillance, witness location, fraud examinations, financial and medical forensics, and other vital services.
Without a professionally performed background screening, diligent attorneys and law firms put their reputations at stake. Our No. 1 goal is to fully remove such unnecessary risk for our clients just like you.
Common Lawyer Background Check Services That We Provide
At Global Verification Network, we offer a variety of expert legal background check services that include the following:
Legal Background Check Services for Criminal Investigations
Legal background check services are key tools used in criminal investigations. Background checks examine an individual’s personal and professional history and associations. Such an investigation either validates or disproves the person’s or business’s asserted character, identity or reputation.
For each attorney background check, our investigative team bases its findings on the review of criminal records, education and employment history, civil records, driving and vehicle records, drug tests, personal and professional references, surveillance, and any additional available sources a client might request.
Lawyer Background Check Services for Civil Investigations
Civil investigations follow similar protocols to those involving criminal cases. Our civil investigators gather evidence for trials involving two citizens, or in some cases a citizen and a business entity.
These types of investigations surround cases that involve workers’ compensation, asset searches, domestic abuse and marital disputes, childhood custody and abuse, personal injury, missing persons, property disputes, and other matters tailored to each client’s needs and concerns for a case.
The investigative tools and tactics that we commonly employ in our civil investigations include surveillance, financial documents, computer and data recovery, fraud reviews, subpoenaed medical records, witness statements from friends and family, and computer and cellphone activity.
Attorney Background Check Services for Insurance Fraud Investigations
Insurance fraud is rampant, resulting in a cost of tens of billions of dollars to the American economy each year. Legal firms stay busy trying to discover all the facts in these cases.
Our fraud investigation team assists clients with insurance cases by researching case histories, accident and damage claims, photographic and video images of the scene, forensic evidence, witness statements, surveillance stakeouts for personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, and social media tracking.
Litigation Investigations and Support Services
These core services include the following:
- Verifying and retrieving information relevant to each case
- Locating and interviewing witnesses
- Discerning relevant financial status
- Reviewing driving and vehicle records
- Examining photographic and video evidence
- Researching social media sites
- And much more
Business Intelligence and Corporate Investigations
Business intelligence and corporate investigations include financial forensics reviews, personal vetting and background checks, exploration of secret commissions and kickbacks, and computer forensics and data recovery.
Most legal background check services involve a rudimentary background screening that includes information such as any maiden name or alias used, the person’s address and length at residence, the person’s previous work history, and the person’s public records that may include criminal information.
Security services associated with the location of a civil or criminal incident can assist in the case. We request details extracted from the security firm’s on-site, remote, photographic video surveillance and any additional information it can provide.
Investigative Support Forensics
Our expert forensics team collects, preserves and analyzes all evidence, using decryption tools, forensic hardware and software, audio recordings, and photographic and video images.
Our insurance fraud investigators gather information from insurance claims and police reports, stakeouts and surveillance, data analysis, social media, and any other relevant sources.
For disputes and litigation involving finances, we perform forensic accounting services that entail the collection, analysis and evaluation of all financial evidence.
Computer Forensics and Data Recovery
Today’s computers and other personal electronic devices often hold a wealth of evidential material for all types of legal cases.
With our computer forensics and data recovery expertise, we can help with the following:
- Locate deleted files
- Recover data lost to software or hardware corruption
- Retrieve data from a physically damaged device
- Process the data in the most practical & useful format
