Our Team

Jay Lindner, Founder

Jay has been in the heir location industry since 1983 and a Licensed Private Investigator since 1986. His career began as a field investigator in Southern California. During these years Jay gained deep expertise within the probate process and hands-on investigative techniques. He has worked on hundreds of estates from all over the United States and abroad.

“I feel fortunate to work in an industry which is bringing news of a potential inheritance to folks. Every case brings a challenge and a story.”

Jay is fascinated by the history told through life stories uncovered through research. Passionate about his research and his search for heirs, he has uncovered stories that span hundreds of years, numerous generations and ultimately brought joy to countless clients.

“Stories such as a first-generation immigrant that changed her name and moved to California to become a Hollywood starlet. And the gentleman that took the name of a neighbor to escape his past and died in Long Beach with over a million dollars in his estate. I look forward to helping many more through Alliance Estate Research.”

During Jay’s many years in the industry, he has assembled an exceptional team of researchers, genealogists, investigators and attorneys. The bonds and trust he shares with his team members is felt by his clients in every interaction, building trust and reliability at every step.

Brad Davis

Brad has been involved in the probate research industry since 1993, working on well over 1000 estate matters in his nearly 30 years as an investigator. He has always applied a personal approach with clients, attorneys and colleagues.

He still enjoys the interaction he shares with the clients and having the opportunity to work collaboratively toward a positive result.

In addition to having fostered a love for the research aspect of the business, Brad has developed a knack for working with administrators and attorneys in moving the process through numerous different court systems throughout the United States. In his view, each case presents a new puzzle that needs to be assembled.
