Please avoid asking us to break the law. 🛑 We Respect and Obey all the Rules and Policies with Thumbtack Inc. 🛑 I make every attempt to chat with potential clients, respond to emails, and conduct 15-20 minute phone consultations. However, I do receive a massive amount of requests each day. If you need urgent please message me on the app or send me an email. I look 👀 forward to hearing from you.

I don’t have enough words to describe how NICE and kind Chris is! He spent almost an hour on the phone talking to me about my case and helping me figure out the best approach even prior to me hiring him. Sometimes what we need as humans is someone who can just listen and genuinely care to make us feel better about some of the bad things that happened to us and I feel like talking to Chris about my case and the level of attention and feedback he provided me has made me feel much better already. If you need a private investigator don’t look anywhere else cause CHRIS IS YOUR GUY!!! Thank you so so so much for everything Chris! We need more people like you in this world! I will follow up on some of the things we discussed and will reach back out again.

I had the misfortune of having to contact Chris to help me locate a missing friend I was deeply concerned about. I messaged him, and received a response from him within ten minutes. He showed genuine concern for me and my situation, and was eager to help. Even though I hadn't paid him yet, he started to get preliminary information from he and explained the process he would go through. Luckily, this morning, my friend contacted me and I was able to find out he was okay. He may not be the cheapest Private Investigator out there, but I can assure you, if I ever need his services again, I will not hesitate to contact him.

To anyone on the fence, the reviews don't lie! Chris was both quick to respond whenever needed and diligent in helping with my investigation needs. I would hire him again, and highly recommend him.

Detective Chris was so wonderful to work with. He was so helpful and helped me with some information on an individual that turned out to be a scammer. I shudder to think what might have happened if I had not learned that this person was a scammer. He did an excellent job in finding me the information that I needed. I would highly recommend him!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We believe in fixed prices. We do not have any hidden fees for miles driven, tolls, fuel, photographs or video. We are a full service, national private investigation agency. Some of our competitors are cheaper, but not all have the experience needed to solve your case.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The initial step would be either chat online thumbtack, phone call or an email conversation. We will ask you questions to determine what the best course of action is, based on your budget. From there we build an investigative plan to your satisfaction. During the investigation you may be contacted due to updates or changes. You will receive a written report as well as any photos or video taken, no more than 72 hours after completing the investigation. Clients also may have a login to our system to receive regular updates on their case.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have attended the law enforcement academy, and was a sworn full time police officer. I was recognized by The White House after assisting the US Secret Service and the Physician 👩‍⚕️ to the Vice President of the US Mike Pence 🇺🇸
