PeopleMap on Thomson Reuters Westlaw: Pryor Cashman Customer Testimonial

The public record search with PeopleMap is really great. I use it both in advocating for my client to defend them, and also on the offense with the adversary. That's a really helpful tool.

Thomson Reuters has this great PeopleMap software that provided amazing results. We were able to take (wrongfully incarcerated individuals’) last-known contact information ... to reach out and help them receive their rightfully earned tax returns.
Carlyle Bruemmer
Associate, Reed Smith LLP

We often use PeopleMap to locate an opposing party, especially in divorce and custody cases. Many times we find the other party has left the state and PeopleMap has been instrumental in helping us locate a party who may have absconded with the children.
