Dealing with the bureaucratic procedures of State governments is not always easy, but Pettinato & Associates exists to alleviate the often time-consuming and frustrating process. Pettinato & Associates is a private investigations firm licensed by the California Department of Consumer Affairs that deals with matters relating to unclaimed property. Millions of people are not even aware they are entitled to money from the State, and Pettinato & Associates uses the most advanced technology available to alert people to the fact and to expedite their claims while ensuring confidentiality. Pettinato & Associates offers two different fee structures for its clients: (1) contingency fee and (2) pay in advance. Most clients choose the first option, a straight contingency fee, as there is virtually no risk to the client. There are no up-front fees or costs and Pettinato & Associates is only paid after the claim is funded. Additionally, Pettinato & Associates handles all the claim preparation and interaction with the reviewing agency. However, some do-it-yourself clients prefer to pay a discounted up-front fee and handle the claim preparation and monitoring themselves. To reduce any risk to the client, Pettinato & Associates agrees to refund 100% of the fee paid if the claim is denied. Staffed with experienced professionals who encompass a thorough knowledge of the ins and outs of the process to which claims are subjected, Pettinato & Associates has successfully represented thousands of clients seeking to claim what is rightfully theirs on an annual basis. Pettinato & Associates’ good standing with the Better Business Bureau further illustrates its dedication to superior customer service. Sacramento, California-based Pettinato & Associates welcomes the challenge of minimizing State imposed bureaucracies while maintaining the highest standards of privacy protection for its clients.
