As professional Criminal Defense Investigators, it is our job to get to the truth using proven techniques and methods that have served the profession well while thinking “out of the box” to get to the bottom of every case we endeavor to undertake.  We are a crucial part of the legal defense team that is often overlooked, and our usefulness has proven to be an asset to any defense team.  We are, for the most part, all former law enforcement officers who know the techniques used by the police in establishing their case and we have all seen some of the simple mistakes made in evidence collection and witness statements.  These are critical parts of any investigation and we know how to get all the evidence in your case into the hands of your legal team.  We work hand in hand with clients and their attorney to establish the facts and present them to the court in your defense.

At FSI, our lead investigator, Tom Gorgone, is the ONLY Board Certified Criminal Defense Investigator in the State of West Virginia and has been trained and is recognized for his expertise by the Criminal Defense Investigator Training Council.  Over the years, Tom has worked to perfect his skills through training and using time proven investigative techniques to establish the facts.  Tom, and his team of investigators, work diligently and with a passion that is rarely seen in our profession in an effort to get to the truth.  As part of the criminal defense team, our job and our passion is to insure that our clients are afforded the same opportunity to prove their case that the prosecution has in presenting theirs.  That is the protection afforded any defendant by the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and we believe firmly in affording our clients with those protections.

You can contact Tom or any of his defense investigators by emailing us at and we will be sure to respond to your inquiry within 24 hours. We look forward to hearing from you, and working for you, in the future.
