CLAIMS MANAGEMENT SYSTEM:
Case Monitor is our web based “paperless” case management system that allows us to help our clients to become more efficient and their business more profitable. It is not in our client’s best interest to charge unnecessary fees which could have been prevented if the necessary due diligence measures were in place. Defense Attorney’s are very busy individuals and Case Monitor will allow them access to all the evidence to be viewed at their leisure and discretion. We all understand that time is money; therefore Case Monitor will be just 1 of the vital resources that will increase your overall success and efficiency.
One of the many features Case Monitor offers our clients is the ability to be notified in advance (generally 2 weeks) when evidence may be needed for an upcoming deposition, mediation or trial. This allows the client and Corinthian Group to request additional surveillance hours to obtain the needed evidence and get the evidence to the requested destination(s) in a timely manner. However, there will be times when the client’s office personnel have not properly calendared important dates and or meetings. In such cases, Case Monitor saves our clients unnecessary fees by allowing them to retrieve the video evidence and or reports/updates from off our secured website free of charge. However, there still may be times when a rush surveillance is requested 1-3 days before an upcoming deposition. In these cases, Corinthian Group will expeditiously conduct the surveillance, upload the evidence to Case Monitor and the client can save the expenses of having evidence hand delivered by downloading the evidence themselves and burning it to the appropriate media. Corinthian Charges only charges our hourly rate/Flat Fee when we download & upload the video to the Case Monitor sites saving hundreds of dollars in unnecessary fees per case.
It would obviously be more profitable to continue charging our clients to hand deliver video evidence when things fall through the cracks, but we believe that it is more honorable to do what is needed and not what is self-serving.
Our investigators are licensed and have between 10 and 20 year surveillance experience. We utilize both men and female investigators from diverse ethnic backgrounds.

Our training addresses new legislation which may impact how investigators conduct an investigation to advanced techniques used during multi-investigator surveillance operations. With the ever changing new technology, development of new investigative methods, and or updated client needs, investigators must receive regular training to stay ahead of the curve.
Corinthian Group has a successful track record of retaining our investigators because of the healthy work relationships that are fostered from all levels of management.
