Mario from Gryphon was very responsive and his investigators quickly gathered the information we needed. In the end they produced a professional report and additional information beyond what I requested. I would recommend this service.

I’ve worked with Roy many times over the past several years and recommend him to anyone who wishes to work with a highly-intelligent, true professional. He knows his stuff, is resourceful and creative while always keeping the big picture and end-game in mind. I think most important of all, he listened to me and clearly understood my challenges and what I needed to accomplish. I consider him a trusted advisor and I am extremely satisfied with his efforts on my behalf. I will not hesitate to use his services again.

This was my first time with having to use a private investigator and wasn’t sure what to expect. Mike and I met, he explained everything to me, his background experiences and previous job titles. Mike did a brilliant job for my husband and I. He was supportive and never said no to our requests. He expressed his concerns with the investigation and was forth coming on everything. He touched based with us during and after when he was done with the home visit of an ex spousal and expressed his concerns with us. Mike gave us his recommendations. We listened to those concerns and took action and have been very pleased with the whole outcome! Even after all was completed Mike genuinely cared and kept touch with us on his own time to check in with us to see how our progress was going. He had every best interest for the well being of the children involved. Mike is a true blessing! With our concerns with the welfare of my husbands kids who are my step children, mike genuinely was caring, empathetic, honest, sincere, and overall an amazing person. He went over and beyond than he needed to and for that we are forever grateful. I would highly recommend Mike for his work! He has been so accommodating with our needs and with being currently available for our attorney!

We needed information about a debtor who has been intent on hiding assets from us. He has refused to even begin to satisfy our judgment against him. Within the span of two weeks he uncovered more data than we had known in the years prior. We were impresssed with his tenacity and empathy for our cause.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a private investigator do?

First and foremost, good private investigators follow laws. Unlike on TV, they don’t break in windows or hack into hospital computer systems to get you intel. When you hire a private investigator, you’re hiring a professional to gather facts and find information for you. Although they can’t obtain certain information (such as health records), they do have access to information that most civilians do not. Often private investigators are hired to perform surveillance or background checks or investigate cases such as adultery, child custody, missing persons, hidden assets, or debugging, and theft or other crimes.

Private investigators can be hired to interview people and provide that information to the client, perform photo or video surveillance, monitor activity at a location where you suspect criminal activities or questionable behavior, track a person’s movements, find missing people, do deep-dive background checks, and more. Private investigation can be helpful if you’re trying to get a court order but need evidence. Private investigators can also help find birth parents. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210 per hour.

What does a private investigator cost?

Private investigation isn’t just for blockbuster action movies. Hiring a private investigator can help in all kinds of situations ranging from finding a birth parent to improving personal security. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210, although pricing often hovers between $40 and $100 depending on the complexity of the services you need. Where you live in the country will affect your costs for private investigation; larger cities have higher business overhead and a higher cost of living, which in turn means higher service rates. The complexity of your case can also affect cost. A basic background check may have a flat rate, while hiring a private investigator to help with your child custody case may require more legwork and research, and therefore cost more. Some private investigators work on retainer. A retainer is essentially a nonrefundable deposit you pay to the professional — meaning you have retained their services — who then works against that amount. Here are some examples of average private investigation costs:

  • Hourly rate: $60-$70; costs can vary based on current fuel prices.
  • Flat rate: $100 for comprehensive background investigation services.
  • Retainer: $1,500 minimum retainer required by some pros before starting work.
