About Us

Legal Research Solutions was founded in December 1995, and is a family business owned and operated by Rod and Shelly Hughes in Springfield, IL. We provide criminal and civil background checks, credit checks, social security traces, and driving history reports.

Rod handles day-to-day operations for the business, running the background checks and getting the information our clients need. This includes pre-employment screenings, credit checks, and criminal and civil background checks for churches, non-profit organizations, employers, and property managers. Shelly manages the business finances and liaises with county courts when copies of records are requested or public records are incomplete, ensuring the accuracy of our results. Their son Benjamin provides information technology services, making sure all computer systems and programs are up to date and that information is stored securely.
