We had a large family reunion at a community park and the city required us to have private security offices on-site during the party. We contacted Delta and they provides us with two security guards for 8 hours for only $300! Their rate was way lower than anyone else we contacted and they were very polite and professional.

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.

Gary has amazing insight. I used to think you only needed a private detective for following or finding someine. Recently we ran into a couple of situations that had us perplexed. They were around a sudden death and the final cal and legal aspects. Gary was amazing. He had great suggestions. Yet; the kindness, understanding and his ability to help defuse the emotions going on were priceless. He is a wealth of information.

Jim did a fantastic job for us on a very sensitive issue. He's very through and meticulous about his work. You will find him resourceful and easy to work with. Hopefully we won't need another private investigator anytime soon but if we did, this is the person we would go with.

Verified review

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.

I hired Atlas Investigations to assist me with an infidelity issue. I was offered a free consultation where I got to meet the investigator assigned to my case.

I always hate questions like this because most of my peers are above board ethically and morally. Professionally, I am prohibited from disparaging my peers. What I can say is that when one receives a report from my agency, one knows the information is precise, accurate, and lawfully obtained.
