TESCO provides plaintiff and defense attorneys with a secure property and evidence storage facility where legal evidence for civil or criminal cases can be safely protected. We maintain a detailed written audit trail to document the “chain of custody” that is essential for court admissibility.
As a litigator, you need to focus on winning your case to protect your clients and your reputation. TESCO enhances your civil or criminal case by allowing you to demonstrate to the judge and opposing counsel that you are following recommended legal guidelines for secure evidence storage.
Your property or legal evidence is accepted, stored and released in accordance with court-mandated legal requirements. We maintain the security of your evidence in a clean, climate-controlled environment. If your caseload requires secure storage for multiple items of evidence, we can provide you with periodic inventory reports as needed.
You benefit from pick-up and delivery services for your property and evidence in Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin, Monroe and Collier counties. In addition to evidence transportation, TESCO will track and store most property classified as legal evidence. (Generally, we do not store jewelry, money or narcotics.)
TESCO adheres to the industry best practices recommended by the International Association for Property and Evidence (IAPE) for legal evidence storage rooms. All TESCO personnel are IAPE trained and certified.
