As our client, you will benefit from our Efficiency, Integrity, Experience, and Knowledge.



Your investigation will receive our immediate attention. Delays at the start of an investigation frequently result in additional expenditures of time, manpower, and money when witnesses disappear, memories fade, and important evidence is lost. C.R. Cochran & Associates utilizes a

proprietary case management system to efficiently plan, monitor, and control the progress of your investigation. Our case management system ensures that your investigation will remain on track, on schedule, and on budget.
