ESI Research performs county criminal and civil searches that follow a strict set of guidelines that we have developed over our years in business. These procedures are limited from time to time by specific court capabilities (clerk search, court system, etc). Our processes are tailored to each client’s needs and desires.

County Criminal Search – Scope of Search

Search Type        Felony – Misdemeanor – Criminal Traffic (where available)
Search Dates       7 year search (Standard)

10 year search (On Request – No additional charge)
** ESI Research considers a search reportable when the last action on a criminal case falls within the reportable time frame.

ESI Research  does not provide the following:

  • Juvenile Court Records
  • Expunged Records (when made available in error clerk’s office)
  • Sealed Records (when made available to researcher in error by clerk)
  • Searches that are out of the specified time frame

Search Process

ESI Research performs a criminal search by using the First name, Last name, Middle name/initial, and Date of Birth. We utilize SSN where available but it is not generally available on many court records. We provide 2 identifiers and 3 if possible. We attempt to report “close” matches for our clients, but due to the ambiguity of the definition of “close”, please understand that our main goal is to provide results based off of the information we were provided with.  Close matches, if found, are reported at NO additional cost.

Case Copies/Pulling Files

ESI Research will obtain case copies/pull files on our clients behalf upon written request and written fee approval. We do not guarantee turnaround time on case copies/file pulls. Our standard fee for this service is:

  • $25.00 Fee / Per Case #
  • $1.00 per page (uncertified)

Certified copies will be billed at rate charged by the county.
