Heir Search for Lawyers


Our parents separated when my brother and I were 8 and 10 years old. We hadn’t seen our father since then. The team at Lauth Investigations were able to find our father and we were able to reconnect with him after 23 years! It has brought some long-needed closure to our family.


My siblings and I were separated since we were young, and I was adopted to another family while my siblings remain with our father. After 25 years, I got a phone call from LII and not only that LII located all my siblings for me, and they also located assets from insurance policy that left to us by our mother. We were able to reunite our long-lost family because of LII and Thank you so much for bringing us together again.


All four of us were adopted by our parents. Our mother was our only connection. When she passed away, we all went our separate ways. I then received a call from Lauth Investigations regarding some unclaimed funds in my mother’s name. After explaining that I had not spoken to, seen or even knew where my siblings were located or if they were even alive, I was told that my family history would be researched. I was filled with shock and awe that Lauth was able to find my siblings and that one of them lived close by! Thanks to the Lauth Team, I finally knew and was able to speak to my brothers for the first time in years. I will always be grateful to Lauth for reuniting me with my siblings.

Carry Out Field Investigations

Both private citizens and attorneys are often in need of in-person verification as to whether or not a particular large asset is housed or present in a certain location. Lauth deploys through surveillance and field operations to identify these items and provide comprehensive reporting on the status of these assets.

Utilize an Independent Third Party

Professional asset investigations provide a crucial measure of validity to any asset search case. All legal pursuits come with built-in biases on the part of individuals with monetary claims. Because claimants possess clear financial motives, Lauth recognizes our role in upholding the integrity of their cases. We have no major stake in the results of an investigation. Our objectivity, therefore, helps parties provide ethical, impartial proof of ownership should the search outcome play out in their favor.
