Today I’m sharing some slides from a presentation my PI-lawyer-husband and I gave last April at the Pike’s Peak Writer’s Conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado. For this presentation, we gave a “big picture” view of skip tracing to help writers craft scenes where their private investigators/sleuths need to track someone.
Below are a few of the slides we used in the skip tracking presentation, starting with who “skip traces” in their line of work, and followed by an overview of how a PI might work with an attorney to conduct a skip trace (something we’ve done hundreds of times at our agency).
Hopefully these will give you some ideas for your stories, or help clarify how a PI might work with an attorney to locate a witness. I’ll be posting more slides from our workshops in the near future.
Have a great week.
