Deep understanding of the unique challenges private clients face
Will the person know I hire a private investigator?
No. No one will ever know. Any records we access, data bases we search or information we uncover will not leak to the subject of investigation. We use careful and methodical approaches to our investigative strategies. If we feel any aspect of the matter may leak, we will share it with you first so we can decide if the risk is worth the reward.
Do you offer any guarantees on your investigation services?
Yes. We guarantee our workmanship based on the budget the client has provided. We also have some additional guarantees depending on the case. Not all private investigations come with a guarantee, so it’s best to speak to us to discuss your matter. Remember, each investigation is different, and there are no promises as to the outcome of your private investigation.

They can also be a stand alone service you choose to hire us for. Criminal history checks start at $400 where a basic background check starts at $600.
How long does a background check/investigation take?Depending upon the information you desire, a background check can be completed the same day. Some take longer, this is solely dependent upon how deep you wish to go. Some background investigations can take a month, but this is generally the case when we are interviewing people during the background investigation.
Is the background check/investigation discreet?100% yes. There is nothing that leaves a trail on discreet background inquiries.

We will advise you ahead of time if that is the case so you can decide if this is what you want.
