Language can be a barrier for law enforcement in counterterrorism intelligence, investigating drug trafficking organizations or any other federal criminal activity disruption.
Our records examiners review requests to translate foreign language content, from photographs, written documents or live or recorded spoken language, and assign inquiries to appropriate linguists based on skill and availability. They track all matters from start to finish and ensure deadlines are met, from material evaluation and dispatch to reporting and peer reviews. FSA staff assist in managing the quality control process prior to dissemination to court or other destinations.
The U.S. government seeks to collect all debts and monies owed through a variety of programs authorized by Congress. Legal actions are taken against debtors owing on federal programs implemented through contracts, loans, grants, guaranties, and other financial instruments.
FSA’s attorneys, financial investigators, and legal assistants handle a varied array of cases that reach all facets of the U.S. economy, with a focus on Congressionally-authorized programs that implicate significant financial and property interests of the United States. Cases may involve healthcare, Chapter 11 bankruptcy litigation, energy, property and natural resources, public bankruptcies, education, communications, defense, or other matters.
FSA conducts financial investigations to identify doctors, pharmacists, and others making legal pharmaceuticals or illegal substances available for illicit purposes. Fraud in the healthcare system not only rips off innocent victims and taxpayers, but it can also endanger the health of patients – as with the illegal distribution of addictive opioids, for example. This type of criminal activity is, in part, what is fueling the 68,500 overdose deaths per year across the U.S.
As a subcontractor, our financial investigators follow the money and prepare evidence packages for federal agents to present for prosecution.
FSA conducts financial investigations involving multi-national, large, organized criminal organizations, kleptocracy, and false claims act cases focused on identifying, investigating, and dismantling their financial infrastructure, and eliminating/reducing criminal organization operations. Our investigators provide in-depth financial investigative case support from inception to sentencing with cases generally lasting several years.
Investigators organize and conduct detailed examinations of voluminous information generated during complex criminal and civil investigations, as well as information available through alternative sources for the purpose of conducting financial analyses of personal or business assets of targeted organizations and individuals.
We minimize risk for the federal law enforcement community by assisting in the investigation of a wide range of federal violations that generate illicit profits for criminal organizations. Asset forfeiture removes the proceeds of crime and other assets criminals and their associates rely on to perpetuate their activity against our society and threaten the safety of communities nationwide.
