Surveillance Services

surveillance-houstonOver the past several years we’ve conducted surveillance services for cases set for family court, civil domestic matters, criminal cases on State’s witnesses, corporate investigations, insurance and workers compensation fraud.

Not only does video & photographic evidence tell no lies, but it also provides the necessary documentation to validate your position when needed.

Video Surveillance

Our services include, but are not limited to: surveillance agents with camera equipment which enables them to obtain clear identifiable video from a distance to prevent detection, and undercover covert cameras to film inside buildings. All video evidence obtained by Gradoni & Associates will be admissible in court settings. All of our Investigators have experience in providing testimony to courtrooms when needed.

GPS Vehicle Tracking

When allowed by the law, Gradoni & Associates will implement GPS tracking devices to give us an edge in our surveillance operations. When deployed, we’re able to secretively keep an eye on the vehicle being tracked, leading to an effective use of time for our, and our client’s bottom line.

Surveillance from a Distance

To remain undetected by the subject of the investigation is paramount. If the situation calls for it, our professional team(s) of investigators possess the skill, knowledge, and the equipment to remain stealth during stakeout and investigation scenarios. If needed, we can capture high quality visual recordings & photographs from hundreds of feet away.

Workplace Theft & Embezzlement Schemes

On a number of occasions our services have been retained by corporations hoping to capture video evidence of theft, internally and externally.

One of the more interesting cases we handled was The Medicaid Fraud Defense Investigation in which a Houston, TX area doctor was charged with multiple counts of medicaid fraud. In that particular case we were defending the accused, but in other cases, like the Homemade Engine Fabricator, we helped a local Houston area industrial client recover nearly half a million dollars worth of stolen intellectual properties.
