I wasn't sure what to expect as I've never hired a private investigator before but PDS exceeded the high end of my expectations. I was impressed by the frequent communications (messages and phone), the prompt responses to my questions, and the thoroughness of the investigation. I wanted background information on someone for an upcoming court case but I didn't know the person's name, where she'd lived, and when or where she died (or if she was really dead). PDS kept me in the loop the whole time, updating me with results as the investigation progressed. They even went above and beyond by paying for access to an additional database without charging me extra. While I hope this is the last time I'll need the services of a private investigator, if I do need them in the future I'll hire PDS again.Mar 24, 2019Verified
Prompt and efficient, you can't go wrong with Private Detective Services. Thanks to the report I was successful in pursuing my Defendant. Very satisfied and would definitely hire again!Mar 2, 2019Verified
Although we ended up not needed their services after all, I spoke with them and felt were being straightforward in regards to the possible outcome of the investigation, as well as pricing. I had a little bit of trouble getting a hold of them at the beginning but things happen and I understand people are busyMar 27, 2019Verified
Private Detective Services were excellent! One stickler for me is promptness and communication. PDS delivered both! I knew exactly what was going on, when to expect results and all of that with a great value in price. I would recommend PDS for your needs. My need was a Background Check. The report came back and was very thorough, organized and easy to read. A five star rating.Jan 15, 2019VerifiedPrivate Detective Services's reply
Thank you Mike. I appreciate your business.
Jim is fantastic at his career, compassionate as a person and offered the most affordable price just to allow someone on disability (blind with minimal income) to access the info needed to move on from a dysfunctional relationship. I can't say enough good things about his work quality and his character. Even when I got paranoid about it being a scam or anxious to get answers ASAP he remained calm and respectful, answering almost immediately and offering a refund before I realized it was not a scam, just a process that takes time. Also he reached out to offer help almost immediately, during a chapter of loss and heartbreak, and seemed unphased by how much info I wanted to find out. If you need info for closure this is the person to go to, hands down. Would give 300 stars if I could because he put my OCD obsessing about an ex all to rest once and for all. I imagine you would be hard pressed to find someone as thorough, honest, patient and capable. Thank you Jim for giving me back my peace of mind and even when I was broke and annoying. You helped me let go and make sense of things with not just one investigation but two. You rock.Aug 10, 2019VerifiedPrivate Detective Services's reply
