Lien & Bond Investigations


What We do

Criminal defense attorneys need refined and established Criminal Defense Investigators to provide professional criminal defense investigation to support advocacy of the client and to protect constitutional rights of those charged. LBI has built an outstanding reputation in the field of Criminal Defense Investigation and has worked some of the most notorious criminal cases in state of Arizona . Our intense support of the rights of the accused along with adept factual investigation has helped to assure due process and fair justice for many over the years LBI has been in business. During the investigative process, discovery is reviewed and a strategy is planned after development of investigative theories and themes.  Field investigation is focused and trial support is assured. We are here for you when you need us most. 

We don't just handle Private Clients, we contract with the Office of Contract Counsel to ensure even those who can't afford a good defense on their own are able to acquire one. Money should not bar one from a fair and just defense. We have defended people from all walks of life who have been charged with everything from theft all the way to serial murder. Our Investigators have the experience, the know how, and the connections to ensure you are afforded the best defense possible. 

At Lien & Bond we believe truth and justice should always prevail. 

Are you charged with a crime?

Have you been charged with a crime? What you do next could effect you for the rest of your life if you don't have the right Legal Defense Team.

Crimes in Arizona can range from simple ticket-able offenses & Misdemeanors to serious Felonies that could put you in one of Arizona's many state prisons for decades. Don't risk leaving your Freedom to the Jury and the Courts. You need Skilled Private Investigators that know the field, know the Attorneys, and know how to conduct a proper and legal Investigation to get the facts and the truth for your defense. Your life could be at stake with an ill prepared defense and no Investigative team.

Don't think you can afford an Investigator?

At Lien & Bond Investigations we contract with the Office of the Public Defender to represent and defend those who don't have the means to afford a good Defense Investigation Agency. If you can't afford a Defense Investigation team and you're counsel is with the Public Defender's Office, tell them you'd like to have Lien & Bond Investigate your case. We will visit you in Jail if you're locked up, and at your home if you're out. We will keep you apprised of all developing information as it is uncovered. If there is a lead or information out there waiting to be uncovered, we will find it. We will ensure your rights are protected and your Due Process is respected and your rights are protected as enshrined in the Constitution of the United States.
