Skip Tracing

Tracking down individuals is crucial in our quest to find the people you’re seeking.

We utilize multiple information resources to ensure a speedy and accurate outcome in our search endeavors.

Civil/Criminal Record Checks

For any state court documents or records stored in City Halls, Planning & Zoning Offices, etc., you can rely on Gazelle Process & Investigations to possess the necessary expertise to handle the task promptly and accurately. Contact us to retrieve your Open Records Acts, FOIAs, Secretary of State documents, briefs, complaints, due diligence reports, motions, and transcripts.

Asset Search

There are various scenarios where conducting an asset search is crucial. One prevalent circumstance is for pre-litigation purposes, aiming to determine if a subject or company has sufficient assets to warrant initiating a lawsuit against them. Considering the costs associated with hiring attorneys and the complex legal processes involved, having insight into their financial status beforehand can potentially save significant sums and aid in assessing whether the lawsuit expenses outweigh their assets. Moreover, asset searches are frequently required for obtaining a judgment, allowing you to pinpoint assets eligible for seizure.


Cohabitation investigation involves gathering evidence to prove that an individual is living with a partner while claiming to be single, which can be crucial in civil litigation cases involving matters like insurance fraud, alimony disputes, or child support. We can help by conducting thorough investigations, including surveillance, background checks, and interviews, to gather evidence that can strengthen your case in court. Our expertise in uncovering relevant information and presenting it effectively can significantly bolster your position and increase your chances of a favorable outcome in civil litigation proceedings.

I couldn’t recommend Paul more for serving a summons. He was persistent and helped guide us with the process. He had additional resources and was able to serve after the sheriff wasn’t able to.
