Sara Capelli  Private Investigator

Sara Capelli is the founder of Inquiry Agency that focuses on complex cases for family and criminal lawyers. She excels in reopened and cold cases that are difficult to obtain evidence for. She is known for her intuitive and creative sleuthing to tackle demanding cases. Before she became a licensed investigator she worked in politics for over 20 years. She started on Capitol Hill for two former members of U.S. House of Congress, then elected statewide and local candidates and ended her political career as a lobbyist in Virginia. She honed her investigative skills providing in-depth opposition research on candidates and their political opponents. And now, instead of electing those drafting laws, she investigates those who might just be breaking laws.
