What is a Private Investigator?

Also known as a private detective or PI, a private investigator is hired to gather facts and evidence on a specific subject or situation. While they may have a background in law enforcement, they do not work directly for a government agency and operate within the bounds of the law. Our investigators are well-versed in the field and ready to serve clients in a variety of capacities. From assisting in court cases to everyday background checks, the scope of our services is vast and easily tailored to the unique needs of our clients.
