Humble Beginnings

Legal Research Solutions was started in December of 1995 by Rod and Shelly Hughes. As a family-owned business in Springfield, IL, we understand the needs of our clients. For this reason, the want to hire the best and most trustworthy applicants is something we share with all employers.

A Family Effort

Rod, Shelly and their son Benjamin work together to grant detailed screenings in a prompt manner. Rod handles the daily operations of the business, running background checks and making reports for clients. Shelly manages the finances and liaisons with the court when records are incomplete. Benjamin helps with the information technology services and keeps all systems updated and secure.

Together, the Hughes family promises to complete most reports within 48 hours of requesting them. Additionally, Legal Research Solutions’ “Accuracy Guarantee” ensures that if there are ever mistakes made on a report, we fix them for free.
