At Riddle & Brantley, we have several experienced investigators who help investigate accidents as well as meet with clients who are unable to come into one of our offices to meet with a lawyer. Our investigators can meet you at a location convenient for you and provide you with all of the necessary paperwork for the lawyer to begin working on your case, and if you have questions or concerns during their visit, they will get a lawyer on the phone to help you.
