ASSET INVESTIGATIONS: Does someone owe you money from a past debt? Or are you going through a divorce, and have no idea what your spouse has hidden? They may have money hidden away, but if you can’t find it, you can’t attach it. A search for assets will help you figure out where the money is, and what else the subject owes. Our investigators search sources including real property, cars, boats, bank account information, UCC filings, liens, pension plans and more. We work closely with CPAs and attorneys to paint the most comprehensive picture possible in the most time-efficient manner for our clients.

Catherine Townsend is a member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) and has a real passion for finding hidden money and a comprehensive track record of helping combat white collar crime. Through our partnership with HGH Associates, The Townsend Detective Agency can offer a wide variety of financial services.
