Keystone Investigative Services, Inc., a leading California investigative agency, announced its strategic alliance with Francis & Associates, Inc. as their Nevada investigation provider.

With both corporations’ experience and expertise, they create a powerhouse of an investigative resource for attorneys, insurance carries, third party administrators and self-insureds.  With service suites in claims, liability, disability, AOE/COE and Workers’ Compensation investigations, the alliance of these two companies allow clients to have access to a full-service investigative resource for insurance defense.  Both Keystone Investigative Services and Francis & Associates are recognized in the industry for their quality investigations.  Their service lines complement one another perfectly.

It is common that people often travel between Southern California and Las Vegas and this can cause interruptions in investigations if an investigative company is not licensed in that adjacent state. By having a California/Nevada alliance, not only can we handle case work in both states, but also clients no longer have to worry about cases which cross state lines during an investigation.  This benefits our clients because it creates valuable operational efficiencies and assures our clients that investigations will always be in expert hands.

“We are pleased to align ourselves with a leading edge investigative firm such as Francis & Associates,” said Kelly Cory, President and CEO of Keystone Investigative Services, Inc.  “We have extensive experience conducting insurance defense investigations and litigation support with unparalleled success.  Given our expertise, we are well equipped to support Francis & Associates’ investigative needs in California.”

“This alliance expands the service platform we offer our clients by including the State of California while also adding Keystone Investigative Services to our growing nation-wide network.” said Dwayne Francis, President of Francis & Associates, Inc.
