Conducting investigations through interviewing witnesses often produces unpredictable situations for attorneys and private investigators involved in litigation.  Witnesses often want to please the person conducting the interview, therefore, witnesses may omit critical information, lack personal knowledge, or may disclose pertinent particulars the interviewer wants to hear but is without merit.
