In addition to our drug screening services below we now have the ability to perform on-the-spot breathalyzer testing for your employees as well as drivers. The drug screening process is very simple as we will provide the employee with a form and they can travel to the nearest testing facility. We will in turn bill you at a later date and provide you with the results.
Urine Drug Testing (5 Panel and 10 Panel)
Urine drug tests detect the presence or absence of drug metabolites in a urine sample. Metabolites are drug residues that remain in the body for some time after the effects of a drug have worn off, meaning a person was not necessarily under the influence of drugs at the time of the urine test. Urine tests detect and measure particular drug usage within the days prior. Urine samples are the most common method of drug testing for many reasons—Urinetests are painless, noninvasive, and have a far longer detection period for most substances and drugs in comparison to blood testing. This form of testing allows for flexibility in choosing which substances to screen for.
DOT-Regulated Drug Testing
We offer DOT-regulated drug testing. The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is under federal regulation and requires all employees who perform specific jobs or work in certain industries to be tested for drug use. The DOT requires that all drug testing is completed using the "split-sample" method, in which the initial sample is split in two—one to be tested now, and one to be tested later if the first sample returns as positive(so that a confirmation test can be performed). We also provide medical review officers (MROs) to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the DOT drug testing process.
Hair Drug Testing
Future candidates and potential hires are most commonly drug-screened via a hair sample. Most drugs and illegal substances are detectable in a hair sample for up to 90 days, making hair drug testing a reliable way to reveal long-term or repetitive drug or substance use. Hair samples are a painless drug testing method, as a small hair sample of approximately 100-120 strands is cut from the crown—no hair is pulled and no hair follicles are tested—meaning only hair that has grown above the scalp is tested
Medical and Pharmacy Canvasses

When do I use a private investigator for trial preparation and how can they help?
Attorneys hire investigators to help uncover much-needed evidence or dispute information that may not be factual. There are a variety of actions an investigator can take based on the needs of the case:
Locate witnesses: If you need an expert in a certain field, if your potential witness has moved, or if you simply don’t know someone who was at the scene, an investigator can find and contact the people essential to the success of your case.
Background checks: Whether it’s a witness or someone else directly involved in the case, an investigator can look into their background, including employment, criminal history, and medical records.
Develop additional witnesses: You may have a witness already in place, but investigators can look into these witnesses and potentially discover additional witnesses that may add to the case.
Asset investigation: Investigators, along with a person’s background, can locate a property that a person owns or has owned in the past, whether a home, vehicle, boat, or land.
Financial investigation: An investigator can also look into a person's finances and uncover investments, flagrant spending, and anything else involving the movement of money.
Surveillance: Capturing photographs, video, or audio of relevant details is something an investigator can do legally and efficiently.
Computer investigation: Even if it’s been deleted, investigators can pull up emails, files, and other browser histories in order to uncover relevant information.
Share their findings: After investigating, private investigators can gather everything they’ve found into a report or, if necessary, testify on your behalf in court.
