Background Investigations


A new nanny or babysitter, a potential tennant, your child's coach, online dating, prospective business partner — in today's society, there are good reasons for wanting to verify the background of people engaged in your life.

In some situations, not knowing someone's history can have dire legal, financial, and personal consequences. Instant online background checks have become widely available and are fairly inexpensive, however, they are often very limited in the scope of information and not always up-to-date.

Though, admittedly more costly, an investigation performed by the team at Brian Blackwell delivers far more reliable, accurate, comprehensive results. We perform a thorough, in-depth investigation that includes the individual's employment status and assets, not a background check that only provides limited information. You need to know the full story.

If you are considering entering into a joint business venture, merger, or acquisition, a professional background investigation report by an experienced, licensed investigator can mean the difference between financial ruin or success. Brian Blackwell can assist with substantiating facts before you assume legal responsibility and avoid unpleasant surprises.

Our thorough, Comprehensive Background Investigations consider personal history, business interests, regulatory history, professional licensing and history, criminal and civil cases, financial status and assets, associations, social media and online presence, and political contributions in our investigation.

Brian Blackwell background investigations provide attorneys and businesses with valuable and important information. However, it is very important to be aware of their inherent limitations. Be aware that there is no such thing as a national criminal records check. There is one "nationwide" criminal database, the FBI database, also known as NCIC (National Crime Information Center) database. The FBI database is not public record and cannot be legally accessed by anyone other than criminal justice agencies. This is one of the reasons why we frequently physically hand-search documents in the actual courthouse of record.

Having handled a wide range of research assignments, and having access to sophisticated investigator databases, along with a nationwide network of professional investigators available, the team at Brian Blackwell stand behind their ability to deliver meticulously thorough background investigations. We are sensitive to the private nature of these types of investigations and work with our clients to acquire information as quickly, quietly, and efficiently as possible. We provide the information you need to protect your financial stability, safety, and personal interests.

Thorough, confidential investigations performed by professional investigators. We don't just research investigator databases, we also provide surveillance to ensure complete verification — we investigate. Database records often only tell half the story. We provide a Comprehensive Background Investigation for a total fee of $895.00. You get the 'complete picture.' You get complete verification of their personal history. You get 'the facts.'

Confidential services you can rely on, superior client relations, outstanding work product, and guarantee our focus will be to obtain the results necessary for you to win your case.

Forensic Statement Analysis and Advanced Interviewing

Businesses and individuals who receive anonymous threatening letters

Statement Analysis is the process of examining a person's words to determine if he or she is being truthful or deceptive.

Words reveal us. People always phrase their statements based on their knowledge and life experiences. Our words reveal our background, including our sex, race, and intelligence. Our words reveal our life experiences, including trauma and professional experiences. Our words reveal our basic personality type. The personality type can tell the investigator: how to conduct the interview and how to assess the threat.

When a Subject writes a statement, he or she provides more information than they realize. A person's statement will often contain information they did not intend to share. The key to detecting deception is to know what to look for in a person's statement.

Statement Analysis is the most accurate way of detecting deception. When a person uses nonverbal communication, you have to read or interpret their body language. This means there is always the chance of misinterpreting. With our Advanced Statemment Analysis and Interviewing techniques, there is no interpreting or guess work.

To ensure complete accuracy, the team at Brian Blackwell adheres to a well established principle of having Analysis work checked by other professionals. In the "truth" business, there is no room for ego. Those who are the best and brightest investigators and analysts share a common humility that leads them to seek second and third opinions as a matter of routine. The "lone wolf " analyst would raise suspicion of accuracy and mistrust. The true professional analyst also submits to the discipline of principle and repetition.

Once the analyst locates deception, eliminating the portion(s) that were found to be unreliable or not relevant, the analyst then begins to complete a psychological profile. During an interview, the investigator/analyst bases questions on the personality of the Subject, using their own words, and focuses the time frame at the most critical moments. This is where the confession is found.

As deception, corruption, and self-interest becomes more and more acceptable and popular, often stated as the "moral high ground," and institutionalized envy condemns success and authority more and more, the need for Statement Analysis is imperative. Courts have shown prejudice against companies, and the political elite have shown contempt for authority.

Statement Analysis can be an effective investigative tool in criminal investigations and help solve sexual assault cases, theft cases, and uncover false allegations.

The team at Brian Blackwell can help in determining the author of an anonymous threating letter. Brian Blackwell consults with analysts across the nation to identify the author of the anonymous threatening letter. All work is confidential.

Statement Analysis can protect you from extortion, and assessing the level of threat can help in precaution and protective measures.

Seattle Skip Tracing and Missing Person Investigations

Whether you need to track someone down or know if he or she is committing fraud, you can count on Brian Blackwell Investigations in Seattle, Washington.

Don’t get ripped off by one of those “people finder instant search” services that you see popping up online. They normally give you nothing more than outdated public information, most of which you likely already know.

As a licensed private investigator in the State of Washington with access to powerful databases and other professional resources, I can get the results you need, often including addresses and phone numbers, at a reasonable cost. Everything is strictly confidential and legal.

Of course, the more information you can provide up front, the more likely it is that I will find the person you are looking for. But every case is different. For instance, it would likely be much quicker to find an old classmate you have lost touch with than it would be to find someone who is running from the law or hiding from creditors.

That means the cost will depend on the time it takes to get the job done. While no private investigator can give you a 100% guarantee of finding someone, Brian Blackwell Investigations has the experience and the tools to give you the best possible results at the most reasonable price. Brian Blackwell Investigations is A+ rated with the Better Business Bureau and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
