For thirty-one years Sutton’s mission has been to provide business entities and those persons representing them with all available credible and legally defensible information needed to make an informed business or hiring decision.  

An employment screening, sometimes referred to as a “background check,” is the gathering and analyzing of public information which contributes to the formation of an informed, legally defensible hiring decision. Sutton offers an employment screening program which is fully customizable to your hiring needs.

Searching for missing persons or hidden assets? Uncovering the truth behind workers’ compensation claims? Our seasoned investigators have the procedural knowledge and connections to secure rock-solid evidence and support your case. Many of Sutton Associates’ experts come from state and federal investigative agencies.

 Surveillance​

A lot of valuable information comes from the streets and can’t be found in databases or by working the phones. Many cases require covertly following a subject, observing their every move – whom they meet with, what they do, where they go, when they travel.

 Technology Services

Information systems require specialized investigative skills to recover critical information. Our investigators hail from federal and state agencies that use advanced tools and procedures to uncover electronic data.

 Asset Searches​

Asset searches can reveal hidden properties, business entities and financial accounts. These specialized investigations can also disclose questionable property transfers, allow clients to assess valued items when pursuing a judgment, or can help them determine if it’s even worthwhile to undertake costly litigation.
