- AOE / COE Investigations - Workers' Compensation
Investigation of work related injury claims.
In-person interviews of employee, supervisor, witnesses to the injury.
24 hour contact with employer and unrepresented employee.
Comprehensive, captioned statements.
Surveillance of disabled worker.
California employers are all too aware of rising workers' compensation and medical
treatment for injured workers, causing business to respond with reductions of workers
and unable to compete with companies in other states. We take insurance fraud,
whether perpetrated by the claimant, a physician or others seriously. Our investigative
interviews of the injured worker, employer, and witnesses provides an excellent and
timely report whether the injury was, in fact, arose out of employment or the cause
of injury work related. (AOE/COE).
We also provide surveillance and background services to determine if the subject is
working when on disability.

Witness locate and Interviews
Callaway & Associates provides full service investigative needs to attorneys with experience
in civil, family law, and criminal defense investigations.
Personal injuries arising from auto accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, and other causes
need prompt and thorough investigation to preserve statements and physical evidence.
Our staff have investigated numerous incidents resulting in personal injury.
Preparing an effective defense in a criminal case requires early preparation, such as locating
and interviewing witnesses, and identifying and properly testing physical evidence.
Our staff has experience with various types of criminal cases including driving under the
influence, and possession of marijuana for medicinal uses.
Family Law issues, such as spousal or child abuse, support, and custody are often difficult
and emotional for the involved parties to separate their concerns with factual information,
statements, and physical evidence. Our experience includes finding spouses working
"under the table" or setting up "hidden" bank accounts to avoid their obligations.
How to uncover assets worldwide.
In the modern age, each of us creates an electronic trail from our ATM card, credit cards, telephone records, government filings, and other public data. Analyzing data from these
sources can lead to a detailed understanding of someone’s habits, financial standing,
credit history, legal issues, and other important personal information.
There are many resources available to individuals and businesses to quickly and
inexpensively find rudimentary data on virtually any business or individual - many advertised for a
low fee online. But a word to the wise – you get what you pay for. When your financial future
is at stake, it pays to get the most detailed and comprehensive search available from experts
whose analysis can be used as evidence in court.
Each jurisdiction has a different level of access and sophistication; you need a team that
can navigate public data on a broad scale and combine it into a comprehensive review.
It is often possible to locate and validate assets on a global level, but doing so requires a team
of experts with access to correct and timely international information. This is where
Callaway & Associates Investigative Services comes in. We have access to proprietary technology
to identify and locate the assets of individuals or corporations and to trace the history and
transfer of funds or assets.
Assets can be hidden in many ways and the people who go to the trouble of hiding them can often
be quite clever. With over a decade of combined law enforcement and private investigation expertise,
at Callaway & Associates Investigative Services we know the tricks of the trade and most importantly
how criminals think.
We use professional data mining and proprietary data sources to access the information you need.
Callaway & Associates Investigative Services’ depth of knowledge and resources in this area are
difficult to match.
Serveice of Process
We offer prompt and efficient service of legal process at reasonable costs, including "hard to find"
individuals, anywhere in the United States.
- Business Services
Our database and public records information sources provide you with accurate tools to verify an
applicant's residency, criminal history, credit history, and driving record. We also offer verification
of prior employment. Volume discounts available. See Levels of Services as listed below.
Companies are frequently held responsible by employees for allegations of sexual or other
harassment, assault by a co-worker. Doing your own investigations leaves you still vulnerable to
claims of bias and favoritism. Our staff have experience in conducting detailed, in person interviews,
providing you and your counsel with an objective, unbiased, and informative analysis.
Employees are entrusted with your financial and business resources. Even your most trusted
employees can be tempted and take advantage of you, from theft of equipment, to working with friends
and relatives posing as a bogus vendor. Our investigators have the resources to pierce illusions and
establish the creditability of your employees

- Missing Persons Investigations
What are Missing Persons Investigations?
Missing persons investigations are simply the best way to find out the truth about anyone
you cannot find.
On average, more than 800,000 people are reported as missing and are entered into
the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) annually. Of these, 85%-90% are minors.
These statistics do not include those who are unofficially missing such as those who have not been
reported as missing persons.
One of the big problems with police-led missing persons searches is simply that the term
missing persons is so narrow. Police will only begin looking for a missing child at a specific amount
of time after the child was last seen and by that time, it may be too late if the child has been kidnapped
by a pedophile or child killer. Police are also reluctant, due to thinning resources, to search for people
who voluntarily left home or for those who live on the streets. Even in a police-led missing person search,
police will stop looking after a certain amount of time and will declare the case a cold case.
Police do their best with the resources they have, but law enforcement simply is not equipped to deal with
the crime rates today. Anyone who wants real answers and fast needs to speak to a private investigator.
A professional investigative service such as Callaway & Associates will start looking for someone as soon
as you feel uneasy and will continue to search as long as you are still looking for answers.
Who hires investigators to find missing persons?
The answer to that is just about everyone. You can launch a missing persons investigation to find:
Long lost loved ones or family members who have voluntarily disappeared or run away.
Fugitives you need to find.
Debtors for your money.
Missing persons who have been gone a long time and are part of a cold case.
Runaways and miners who have been kidnapped.
Basically, if you are worrying about someone's whereabouts and wish to locate someone who is not easy
to find, a qualified missing persons investigator will be able to use advanced techniques to help find the
person you are looking for. Call Callaway & Associates TODAY to find the person you are looking for.
