Our Experience

The Public Record Source first opened its doors over two decades ago with a focus on providing first-class quality public record research in the state of Arizona. Since that time, The Public Record Source has become the preeminent court record retrieval firm in Arizona, providing accurate, timely, and cost-effective data retrieval services.

Surrounded by a highly-skilled team of court record retrievers, The Public Record Source is anchored by its founding member with 20 years of public record research experience under her belt and a licensed attorney with first-hand knowledge of the criminal and civil judicial systems of Arizona.

While we have experienced significant growth over the years, several of our clients have been with us for 10+ years because they know that they can count on a superior product at industry-low prices.  We’re not flashy, we don’t have the giant presentation booths at the national conferences, but we get the work done right.  Our clients know that they can count on us, and that’s why they stay.

Why The Public Record Source?

In addition to our unrivaled experience, we utilize technology to provide a top quality product that our competitors cannot match.  While there are a handful of industry-typical order management systems that nearly all public record research firms use, these systems often go years between updates and are dependent on third-party software engineers.  The Public Record Source, however, utilizes a Direct-to-Researcher system that has been developed entirely in-house.  This system is routinely updated, and is monitored by our own engineers.

As a result, our turnaround time is substantially lower than that of our competitors, and our search fee is the industry-best.

Pre-Screened Searches

The average hit-ratio for most of our clients is between 8-12%.  We do, however, work with CRAs with an above-average hit ratio who perform initial searches on their end.  Additionally, we also provide purely record-retrieval services for an additional fee.

Data Security

All PII (Personal Identification Information) is maintained behind high-level 256 bit SSL encryption.  All of our researchers who have access to PII are subject to thorough background checks and routine auditing.

Turnaround & Fees

All Maricopa & Pima county searches are returned within 24 hours.  Most other counties are completed in 24-48 hours.

Our search fee is dependent upon the county, hit-ratio, and expected volume.  Discounts for higher volume clients are available.  Contact us today to discuss our current price list.
