About Us

This agency was started with a simple vision in mind. To maintain a small group of experienced Private Investigators who know the area and genuinely care about results.

While our agency offers quality, detail oriented investigations & evidence to businesses and the legal community, we place a special emphasis on individuals and personal service, especially for those who have never used a Private Investigator before. Over time many investigators can become jaded or numb to the problems clients face. We strive to never forget how awkward and daunting the prospect of hiring an Investigator can be. Although this is a growing and competitive industry this is not a simple service business. We assist real people with real problems that can have lasting consequences and we take that responsibility seriously.

Do you need a Private Investigator?

We understand that hiring a Private Investigator "Detective" can seem a bit intimidating but if you've found us then it's quite likely we can help. Many clients call us when they feel they have nowhere else to turn but are not sure exactly what type of help they need. That is where most investigations start and why we encourage you to contact us anytime with whatever questions you may have. The truth is that you may not need an Investigator. Even if it's simply to refer you to other resources or services our Investigators are happy to help. Once we understand the situation we will try provide the information needed to decide if our services are the right fit for you. Consultations are always free & discreet. Whether it's a personal, legal or financial matter our Investigators have more resources and information available than ever before to obtain the answers or evidence you need. We understand the sensitive nature of many situations and will work together with you to determine course of action that's best for you and your budget.

Below we've also placed some frequently asked questions to further assist you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much does an investigation cost?

A: Total cost may vary depending on the type of case.                                                           Any case where an Investigator is out in the field ie. infidelity, child custody surveillance, court research etc fall under an hourly rate.

Searches, skip trace/locate, background checks, process service etc will usually be a flat rate based on our price plan or tailored to a clients specific needs.

Q: Do you require payment in advance?

A: Yes. For surveillance and other hourly services we will need an initial retainer for the estimated hours to begin the investigation. Flat rate services will require full payment of the price quoted.

The reason for this is that nearly all of the services we offer have some cost involved either to pay investigators for their time or to pay for searches, information retrieval etc.

In certain cases where services paid for are no longer needed or if estimates greatly exceed hours needed to complete the investigation a partial reimbursment may apply.

Q: How do you estimate the hours needed?

A: First and foremost we require the facts of the case, persons involved, locations etc. Working with you we will try to establish what type and how much evidence is needed to achieve your goal. Then based on our experience of previous cases and your budget we will settle on the amount of hours we believe it will take to begin the investigation. Additional hours or services may be added at any time as the investigation progresses or if more evidence is needed.

Q: What forms of payment do you accept?

A: We accept cash, all major credit cards, Paypal and                                                          bank transfer (May not be available for all services depending on pricing and fees.)

Q: How do I get my case started?

A: Contact us immediately for a free consultation. Once we have the facts of the case we can discuss your goals and concerns to give you an estimate or quote. As soon as you are ready payment will be required. Depending on the type of case you may be asked to sign a basic retainer agreement or other authorization. Once this is completed we can begin as discussed.

Q: What is the best way to contact you?

A: By phone is definitely the fastest way to relay the details and obtain an accurate quote.
