Court Record Research

How to Start a Court Records Search in California

We’ve been leaders in litigation support in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Bernardino, Riverside, and Orange County, California for nearly three decades. Our goal is to bring forth new information that helps your court case end in a victory. We can search through court records or public records to discover new data (potentially dirt on your defendants).

There are plenty of records that get stored by the county clerk, and many of them can make a difference in your case. For example, if someone has felonies, misdemeanors, fraud, previous marriages, businesses in their name, etc., we can tell you the truth about them so you can bring it to court as admissible evidence. A few small details about the target are required (name, nicknames/aliases, date of birth, home or business address). Contact our experts for help if you’re unsure about the target’s details.

We work quickly and have learned from experience the fastest ways to complete legal tasks. You should expect everything completed within three to five days or less. Our experts will let you know if more time may be needed. A list of our most popular court record searches is below.

Best Court Records to Use as Evidence in Court

What if the courthouse clerk can’t find my records?

In the event that your records have been removed from the courthouse or are otherwise inaccessible according to the court clerk, we’ll seek a Certificate of No Records instead. By showing that records haven’t been made available to the public, a judge may be more likely to support a subpoena for the defendant’s personal copy.

Your preparation for every court date is our concern. Our experts are ready for any questions about the specifics of your case. For a free consultation, use the button below.


I am a personal injury attorney who has routinely retained Excell Investigations for my investigative work including process service, defendant and witness locates, and asset searches. They have been very prompt with my orders and always delivered the expected results. At times they have been successful in serving very evasive witnesses. Compared to other companies I have used in the past these guys are top notch. I will continue to use their services for my office’s needs and recommend them to others.
