“I don’t care if they get a hundred doctors to examine you. If you say your back is killing you, they can’t prove it isn’t. That’s what we call pain and suffering. And the money you get is tax-free.” – Walter Matthau to Jack Lemmon in the movie “The Fortune Cookie”.

Data Research, Inc. places a strong emphasis on case management.
All investigations are managed and maintained as follows:

Case Diagnosis

Each assignment is reviewed to calculate the scope of the investigation and attendant budget necessary to fulfill case objectives. DRI responds to all investigations with an action plan and budget at the outset of the investigation.

Client Authorization

While investigations may appear similar all essentially differ in time and scope. Thus the action plan and budget are analyzed and approved on a case-by-case basis.


Investigation is undertaken to varying degrees in every case and can include identification and retrieval of documentary evidence, scene investigation, witness interviews, evidence collection, surveillance as well as other required activities.

Progress Reports

Verbal reports are provided to the client on a pre-determined schedule.

Status Review

Cases are monitored and reviewed in-progress and through completion. At the conclusion of an investigation, each case undergoes a final review and analysis of findings are presented to the client to determine if additional investigation is required.

Report of Investigation

A comprehensive written report is provided to the client within ten days of the end of the investigation. End reports include all relevant activities, findings, video (if requested) and supporting documentation.
