My experience with Guardian Investigations was far better than I could have ever hoped for. I had a defendant I believed would be extremely difficult to serve in a timely manner as she is known to hide from anyone she suspects is "out to get her." I anticipated many attempts and even the possibility that a stake out might be necessary in order to accomplish service. Much to my amazement, Peter managed to serve the defendant on his very first try. I was stunned and extremely relieved that it was done so quickly. Peter Barranco was very responsive to my needs. He provided a quote for his services promptly. He met with me at the time we agreed to meet and was right on time. His fee was very reasonable, especially in light of the difficulties I anticipated he would encounter accomplishing service on this defendant. I was more than happy to pay him for his services. Peter was professional and understanding and did everything he said he would do. Plus, he's just a nice guy - very easy to talk to. I would highly recommend Peter Barranco and Guardian Investigations to anyone in need of his services. Thanks, Peter!! Stephanie

I had a defendant who had effectively avoided service including service by the clerk of the court. A case that has been continued for almost two years. I now live 1850 miles away and didn't want to fly to court without a hard service. My dysfunctional friends couldn't get a good serve and file a proof of service. Peter Barranco was all business and fast. He served two summons for me the same day. What a relief off my shoulders to finally find someone who is reliable and knows what he's doing. We were getting close to deadline and he got my papers filed with the clerk right away. I was skeptical at first but, his response was immediate and his rate was so affordable I decided to tip him extra for expediting my service. If you need someone served in San Diego I would highly reccomend Peter Barranco. It was less than I expected....fast and fair. It's nice to have someone on your side that cares. Thanks Peter...the check is in the mail. Ed Kravitz

First time using this app. I was worried to hire someone off the internet to deal with a legal matter. I gave Peter the paperwork to be served at 8 am. He texted me saying it was done at 4 pm. He filed the paperwork with the court the next day and sent me pics of the documents with the time/date stamp from court. His Fees are competitive in San Diego ( i called around). Responsive and experienced. I recommend his services as a process server.

I used Nick as part of my divorce case to do a co-habitation investigation (essentially to prove that my soon to be ex-wife was already living with her boyfriend - which was the reason for our divorce). Being able to demonstrate this would allow me to significantly reduce or eliminate my spousal support obligation. Nick came highly recommended by several attorneys that I had interviewed and he lived up to my high expectations in every way. Nick was creative in how we approached the case, collaborated with me in every way that I desired, kept me abreast of what was going on, and was very detailed. I really enjoyed working with Nick and appreciated how he was always helping me find ways of approaching the case that would keep my costs down. He is not one of those shady private investigators which I appreciated because if someone is willing to break the law for you, then I would question how much you could trust hiring them to represent you. I would absolutely recommend using Bradley Investigative Services.

If you are seeking investigative services in the San Diego area, please look no further than Nick Bradley. During a most stressful time in my life, Nick was the consummate professional. Simply put, Nick's many years of experience and knowledge proved instrumental in not only cost savings but gathering valuable information. I cannot thank Nick enough for his timely help. If I had to do it all over again, I would not hesitate to pick Nick. Bottom line: Bradley Investigative Services is a top notch organization that prides itself on customer satisfaction and getting results that matter! Thank you, Nick! Sincerely, Elaine U.S. Army Colonel (retired)

I was dealing with suspicion of abuse from the nursing home staff toward my mother- I didnt know what to do- a friend suggested I contact a Private Investigator and found BCD Investigations. I was very worried but Dave assured me he would do everything to assist in my situation. He got photos of the abuse and now I have my mother out of that horrid place and a law suit against them for neglect. Thank you for your compassion through this process- Highly recommended!
