Verified review

James has done several forms for me and his work is outstanding. I used to be a paralegal and James has shown to me and done things that even I didn't know, saving me thousands of dollars with overpriced attorneys. He is very, very knowledgable, courteous and gives of himself. He has provided service beyond any other legal services provider that I've ever worked with, and that's a lot of firms. He also does private detective work and is excellent there as well. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND JAMES STONE ! Robert Cowart

I have never had to use the services of a Private Investigator so I didn't know what to expect when I found myself in a situation where I needed one. I called Morrow Detective Agency because I had six days to locate and have served with court papers an individual who had quit his job, moved out of his house and basically disappeared in an attempt to evade and avoid an upcoming financial judgement. When I talked to Steve Morrow on the phone his demeanor was very professional and he immediately put me at ease. He confidently told me that this was something that he could do. My wife and I hired Steve Morrow on a Friday morning and by 4pm of the same day he had located this individual. This individual was found to be living out of the area so Mr. Morrow quickly used his contacts to find someone in the area where the individual was living to serve him the court papers. Long story short the individual was served within the six day period that we had to work with. Not only did Steve Morrow work miracles in a short time frame but he consistently communicated with us to inform us of the progress of our assignment. He also stayed on top of all aspects of the process from beginning to end. This is an amazing work ethic and professionalism that is hard to find these days in any profession. If like me you one day find yourself in a situation, where you need the services of a Detective Agency then Morrow Detective Agency unequivocally, hands down is the agency you need to hire. Thank you Steve for your professionalism, great communication skills and effective results.

If you are looking for a private investigator that provides results, then LA Intelligence is the way to go. This was my first time hiring a private investigator and I really didn't know what to expect. Detective Mathews was very thorough and explaining the process and letting me know exactly what to expect.he provided me with the information that I needed quicker than I expected and I couldn't be more satisfied. If you are looking for a professional, experienced, and reasonable private investigator, look no further. these guys are the real McCoy!

Verified review

Becky is just great. I was disappointed with the snail pace of police/detectives in LA county in regard to my case (theft). So I found her online..called her and noticed a difference right away. There are times in life when you say.."I need a lawyer." Originally, that was my thinking.. But let her investigate and uncover the truth first.. Then hire an attorney if you really need to.

UNIT 07 was very refreshing to work with...I needed help in the form of bodyguards and I needed my former business partner investigated for fraud against myself and my new business partner. UNIT 07 was very methodical with the way every aspect of my case was handled, I only wished I could have been more involved but they got the job done and I think I was to emotional to get to close anyways. Thanks again. Robert E. C.

Mark took his time to do a thorough investigation of my situation. He was able to provide concrete evidence to further my goals and help bring closure to a situation that was nebulous at best before he got involved. I didn't get the run around. I did get factual and timely explanations along with any proof that he found which helped me make very necessary decisions.
