The Role Social Media Plays in Winning Cases


Despite what many of today's teens believe, you can get along perfectly well in your personal life without "friending" online. Your professional life, however, may suffer, because teens are right about one thing; social media is a unique hub of information, some of which can benefit your practice and your clients. If you don't know a "tweet" from a "Pin" or a "+1" from a "follow" you may be inadvertently underserving your clients. 72% of internet users are now active on social media (Bullas, 2014), and that activity should play a role in your due diligence and case development.

Forward thinking attorneys understand why teens are drawn in droves to social media. It is a platform for self-expression. It shows "the other side" of people; the spontaneous, unguarded, personal side rarely shown in a witness interview or courtroom testimony. Arkansas Investigation's professional social media searches bring to light text posts, pictures, videos, time-stamped whereabouts, personal bias, relationships, and casual "confessions" you might not otherwise be privy to. Imagine finding a social media photo of two reticent witnesses who claim not to know each other - arm in arm! Or a cell phone video showing a client at gun range target practice, and the client claims to have never fired a gun in his life. How would that affect your development of a case?

An Arkansas Investigations Social Media Search includes, but is not limited to, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube and over 29 other websites. We uncoverhidden assets, associations between people, factual discrepancies, and information witnesses or law enforcement personnel may fail to disclose. We give you information to supplement what you already know, so you can build a winning case.

 Finding a Professional to Properly Conduct Social Media Searches
Information is power. With it, you have the power to prepare for the courtroom. Without it, it's a roll of the dice and fingers crossed that you have built a strong case and will win. That's no way to run your practice unless you want to run it into the ground. Thanks to the internet, you have more information available to you now than any other time in history. That is, if you know where and how to find it. Arkansas Investigations does, and we now offer professional Social Media Searches to help you find the information you need to:
  • Build a strong case based on facts
  • Evaluate law enforcement actions and reports
  • Identify and locate possible witnesses
  • Confirm or disprove witness claims
  • Respond to client needs and concerns
  • Locate hidden assets
  • Provide evidence of existing relationships
Why do you need a professional social media search? It's no secret that people often post (and sometimes later delete) information on social media that contradicts or supports reported facts, testimony, opinions, and credentials. Our searches enable you to complete and verify "the picture" you are forming of a client, witness, or potential business partner by uncovering information hidden in social media, visible web, deep web, and archived websites. You may be able to locate "hidden" witnesses and previously undisclosed facts that would be an asset to your case. You can minimize the risk of unpleasant courtroom surprises by finding out what a social media researcher may learn about your client and witnesses.

Can you conduct your own social media search?
