I can't even begin to say how wonderful these people are. I would rate them a 10 out of 5! The administrative side is very friendly and super quick to respond. The investigators are not only great at their job, they're compassionate and as caring as can be. Instead of crying through my experience, they had me laughing and made the painful part so much easier to bear. Their results were quick and they surprised me at how efficient they are. I hired them on Wednesday and got the info I needed by Saturday. Their pricing is reasonable - I am on a strict budget and they were able to work within it and still get me results. As you can see, I recommend them whole heartedly.

What can I say about Eagle Investigations, Inc. of Northern California? After talking and hiring them to work with we and on my case, I have nothing but praises and profound gratitude for their individual and collective professionalism and methodical ways in conducting their investigation and taking care of my investigate case. Without any reservations, I would highly recommend Eagle Investigations, Inc. over any other PI in this business. Thank you Moses and Dan for a superb job! Carlos

I used Eagle Investigations to serve someone court papers. Spoke with Moses, who politely explained the process. Moses immediately got on the case. They were very thorough in their research. Brittany was assigned to me. She's sharp and friendly! She was able to quickly serve the person. The process was hassle free. Brittany and her team made me feel at ease. I have lots of confidence in Brittany and Eagle.

Jeff promptly responded to my inquiry of process service. His prices are about in line with most process service. We tried to serve at the last known address, but they weren't there. He provided pictures and updates after each attempt. He then searched for and found the defendant, and served while major flooding was happening in the area. This all took three days to finish. Also, he doesn't charge extra for to summons to the same address. Would I use Jeff again? Heck yeah I would!

Kevin was responsive, knowledgeable and experienced which is why I hired him for a very sensitive and difficult personal service in a stressful case. With his assistance we were able to get the person served without any drama. It went smoothly and was done quickly. I enthusiastically endorse Kevin and will definitely keep his number in my speed dial for any investigative or service work.

Bernard went above and beyond helping myself and another family member. It's a little scary not being face to face with a professional, but Bernard took what I gave him and ran with it! After sharing more info he really dug deep and gave me answers that were amazing! I HIGHLY recommend his services, his fees were very affordable, honestly, and I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in Northern CA whom needs a help with something that's just a little more than complicated than I can research. Thank you for the opportunity to know the answers I have wondered for so long!

We recently contacted Bernie Morton in hopes of finding a lost loved one. Though we were unable to accomplish our mission, Bernie went above and beyond our expectations. He always kept us informed along the way so we never had to wonder what was going on, always in a timely manner. He was kind, courteous and very thoughtful of our feelings. There is really nothing we would have changed about our experience! He was able to give us the peace we had been looking for. We would definitely use him again if needed and highly recommend him!

Mr. Morton is the consummate professional who actually cares! He is an excellent communicator who sent me regular updates as he worked to locate someone I hired him to process serve. His fees are extremely fair and you find yourself wanting to pay him more due to his excellent advice, honesty and diligence in his task. I highly recommend him and will use him again!

It's a business nightmare. I had a trusted employee whom I suspected of stealing large sums of money over an extended period of time. I didn't know what to do, but I did know who to call. I contacted Stephen Krollpfeiffer and explained the situation. He knew that if I confronted the employee I could be opening a legal can of worms. He instructed me to go about my business as if all was fine. He began his investigation and had soon documented proof of the theft. He even handled the termination. I appreciate that Stephen was very sensitive to my company's needs, and other than a few key individuals, no-one knew anything had happened. I was able to continue to focus on business and, thanks to Krollpfeiffer and Co, we never missed a beat. Now Krollpfeiffer and Co performs background checks on all new hires, so I'll never find myself in the same situation again. If you own a business, you can't afford not to have this same protection.

I am a lawyer in Australia and I needed some investigative work undertaken in the USA. I really didn't have a clue how to proceed and I knew that if I approached a local Aussie firm for help in finding a US firm I would have to go to the big corporate guys here who would contact similar and the fees would skyrocket. Luckily I had a personal recommendation to Krollpfeiffer. I am SO impressed with the work they have carried out for me; their professional approach, keeping me informed at every stage, I feel like I mattered and was not just another client. I feel safe in their hands, knowing that whatever they turn up will be as much information is possible to find. Their fees are very reasonable too. And I would recommend them to anybody seeking a P. I. both within the USA and from another jurisdiction( as I was) involving a US matter.

I was faced with a very sensitive situation involving an employee from my firm - I didn't have a clue on how to handle the situation properly in order to avoid a potentially dangerous situation. I called Krollpfeiffer and company and was immediately given peace of mind. Mr. Krollpfeiffer himself handled the investigation and even took care of arranging the termination of my employee which went without incident thanks to his professionalism and expertise. I would absolutely hire Mr. Krollpfeiffer again in the future should the need ever arise and will recommend him to every one of my friends and associates should they ever need the services of a world class professional.

As a licensed private investigator for over 30 years, I am in constant need of experienced investigators to handle cases from the simple to the complex. I recently was in need of an investigator in the San Francisco Bay Area and Nancy came highly recommended by a fellow investigator. This case involved an international client. Nancy not only worked well with me, but represented my interests with the client equally well. She worked tirelessly on this case both day and night for over two months. I would recommend her without reservation.

She was perfect! And for me a Christmas Angel! I got the news of finding my long lost friend on Christmas Eve! My Christmas was looking very dim, as my mom had passed on 5yrs ago and my dad died in February. And I was sick to boot, so when she texted me that she had found my friend, I was so excited and I can't imagine a more beautiful gift on Christmas! Thank you Sooooo Very Much Nancy you are my Christmas Angel!

I have worked with Mr. Sanchez for many years. Mr. Sanchez is a skilled investigator and his vast experience will guarantee a quality work product. His experience will often reduce the hours needed to complete your case and reduce the end cost to the client. If your case involves the need for speaking Spanish, Mr. Sanchez is fluent in Spanish and you will save the cost of an interpreter. Mr. Sanchez is very trustworthy and you can be certain your case will remain confidential. Mr. Sanchez has my highest recommendation.

Fishbaugh and Associates has helped me a couple different times now. Connie was amazing at getting me the answers I needed fast and I thought the service was very affordable. I will use them again if needed.

I had hired the sheriff's department and to process servers to try to serve my ex-wife divorce papers. She wouldn't open the door and they were unsuccessful. After searching Google for the best process server in Sacramento I called Lance Casey and Associates. His price wasn't the cheapest but after sitting outside of her house for hours he was able to serve her. I highly recommend Lance Casey and Associates to serve your legal documents.

integrity; professionalism; attention to detail; you will know the facts as they are uncovered "not" what you want to hear. There is no benefit to you in a proceeding if you are blind sided by details that should be revealed in the normal course of investigation.
