​Criminal Defense Investigations

Avery & Associates is a professional licensed Private Investigations and Consulting Firm with over 35 years of Law Enforcement and Private Investigative experience! Our investigations are highly trained and experienced retired and former Police Officers and Detectives!


We are authorized by, and conduct criminal defense investigations for the Santa Clara County Alternate Defense Office (ADO), and the Santa Clara County Independent Defense Counsel's Office (IDO).

The first goal of our investigation is to carefully examine the police reports, crime scene, physical evidence, court transcripts, photographs, videos, and all other discovery items, to determine the facts of the case. We then work to identify missing details, witnesses, and other relevant information which may offer our client the best chance for a fair and favorable outcome. Inattention to detail, missing or contradictory information including witness statements, and errant procedure are common in criminal investigations – whether due to budgetary constraints, heavy case loads, time and personnel management, or simple carelessness. These details strengthen the defense case, enabling attorneys with strategies to provide their clients the strongest defense possible.

Our investigators are trained in the latest investigative research techniques and utilize the latest investigative tools to help protect our clients in the court of law. We typically work with attorneys and legal teams to help find the information they need to build a strong case utilizing proper evidence retrieval and collection methods.

Crime Scene Examination
Comprehensive review of discovery to find investigative leads
