For over three decades, Mark E. Walker & Company has been working with both the legal and business communities in locating missing heirs and missing people for business related purposes.
We have established and maintained a global network that supports the production of information and documentation from virtually any part of the world. From our base in the American Midwest, our research and work extends across state and territorial lines and national borders.
Flexible fee structures permit the choice of a fee structure that is in the best interest of your particular situation, accepted by courts nationwide as fair and reasonable
We help you fulfill your client duties with reporting that is thorough, concise, and formatted to save time and avoid duplication or reworking by your staff. In our estate work, we will provide you with our "CompReport", that includes everything from an Affidavit of Heirship to alphabetized mailing labels.
We know you need to be kept informed. Our progress updates on the status of our investigations do precisely that.
We offer a contract for service that outlines each aspect of our investigation and possible or contingent outcomes and helps protect you by clearly defining the scope of our services.
We are attentive to the unique needs of the legal and business community and from our experience and positive results, have developed a comprehensive service that makes your work as a fiduciary easier.
We help relieve the burden on you and your busy staff. Inevitably, when we begin identifying and locating heirs in estate matters, those individuals have predictable but time consuming questions regarding their interest and their relationship to the decedent. During the investigation, and with your permission, we encourage located heirs to contact us with their general inquiries versus contacting you or your staff.
For your convenience, and if necessary, we can provide you with sample petitions and orders for "authority to hire", which have been prepared and approved by your attorney colleagues in past cases.

Both Mr. Edmiston and I have commented on the extremely professional manner in which you undertook this employment, the thoroughness of your search, the accuracy of your records, the professionalism exhibited in reporting to us and the concise but complete nature of your reports. We have both been extremely impressed by the caliber and quality of your work and would certainly recommend you to any and all potential clients as being 'top of the line' in such investigations.
This letter is my recommendation of Mark E. Walker & Company, LLC. I was the attorney handling an estate in Jackson County, Missouri. The decedent had no children and he was an only child. His parents were also both only children and so, therefore, the heir search began at the decedent's grandparent level. Mr. Walker was able to identify 68 heirs. This helped immensely in handling this decedent's probate estate. I believe his fee was reasonable as well considering the time and effort that it would have taken me and my staff to perform the same heir search.
It was a short six weeks ago that I contacted you for assistance in helping me locate ten heirs which I had been unable to locate. I cannot tell you how pleased the personal representative of the Estate of Alice A. Harper and I are with your services. It is almost unbelievable to us that in this six week period you could locate and document the existence, or deaths of all ten heirs. You are truly a professional in the heir location business, and I will not hesitate to recommend you to my colleagues.
Thank you for finding this money for us. You have been most professional and ethical. May you have continued success. I knew someone from my birthplace (Alexandria, IN) had to be honest.
I want you to know that we very much appreciate your assistance in this matter and that without your help, the heirs of Jiri Licehamr could not have been located.
Received the check today. Thank you so much for all you did to get this money. I had no idea that the money was there till you called me. Again, thank you.
We are pleased to offer hourly, fixed and contingent fees.
Upon deciding which fee structure works best in your situation, contact us by telephone or e-mail and provide us with the particulars of your case. We will then provide you with a personalized fee quote. The amount of information known or unknown about your missing heir/s or missing person/s is relative to fee amounts.
