Today's mobile society makes tracking someone down quite difficult as people change jobs, homes and phone numbers more frequently than ever before. Attorneys and paralegals often have the daunting task of trying to serve a party, locate a witness or just get background information on a client, other individual, a business or property. This type of in-depth, fact-finding research doesn’t have to mean ordering an expensive background check or hiring a private detective. You can find most information on the web at no cost, provided you are persistent and know where to look.

Expert faculty Lori Corso will walk you through the best free sites for locating background information and how to vet the information you do find. And, while there is much to be found on the open web, this webinar will also cover what information you are NOT likely to find online for free and will suggest some paid databases that offer an alternative to ordering a formal background check.

All website addresses will be shared via an online Fact Finding guide that you can bookmark and return to again and again as it will be updated indefinitely.
