A Passion For Quick and Complete Results

Simply trying to offer his students on-the-job internship training, professor and college dean Jonathan Kraut became a state licensed private investigator in 1997. In 1998, overwhelmed with new national accounts, he finally traded in the classroom to lead an organization where he could practice what he had preached.

Having 20 years experience as an investigator and pre-employment screener with organizations to include the U.S. Army, aerospace manufacturing and design facilities, job placement and training services, and a national trade association, Jonathan established several basic practices that continue to give Net Check Investigations clients an advantage to this day:

  • All searches are performed by a live agent who has the training and good judgment to use reason and creativity to locate, verify, and interpret case information.
  • Reports and findings are re-written and summarized to be easily read by those without formal legal training.
  • All requests are processed and completed within one business day when possible.
  • Each client is assigned one agent to oversee all activities and communications so that a client can get the latest information at any time from someone who knows the status of each search.
  • The cost of services remain low due to high volume and high efficiency

Collecting Evidence out of “Curiosity”

Individuals and firms may wish to engage our firm with the task of gathering information and evidence that does not immediately pertain to case preparation or information necessary to make an immediate business or personal assessment. Rarely is this information of use without a pending legal action. Our policy is to resist accepting assignments that merely satisfies a client’s “curiosity.”
