Not All Record Retrieval Companies Are Created Equal

Jul 27 2015 | posted by Giles-Parscale

There are many record retrieval companies out there. You could potentially use any one of them to handle your records requests, but you're probably not going to get the same results with every firm you try. You see, record retrieval companies vary greatly. Some have absolute pros on staff and have been in business for decades, while others are new, inexperienced, and just getting their feet wet.

Which would you prefer?

Record Retrieval Companies can be hard to distinguish against!

If you're looking at record retrieval companies to hire, it's important to be diligent in choosing your provider. Typically, these companies can differ greatly in their:

·  Experience: How long has the company been in business? How many attorneys have they served? How many cases have they been a part of? Always learn about their experience before hiring them to handle your requests.

·  Staff: What is their staff like? Do they have previous legal experience? How long have they been handling records requests? Are they familiar with all the procedures, regulations, and processes that go with requests like yours? Make sure to ask about a company's staff – especially the ones who would be handling your records – long before you submit that request. 

·  Relationships: What relationships does the company have with records custodians? Are they familiar with local, state, and national agencies? Can they get your records prioritized and through the pipeline quickly? The better connections a company has, the more efficiently your requests will go through, which means more time to study the records, vet them, and build a strong argument for your clients.
