He's professional and gets amazing results. His prices are fair and he works harder than any other Investigator I've ever hired.

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.

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.

I hired Chameleon to conduct surveillance on a previous employee that I suspected is not injured at all. I am extremely happy with the results that saved me a lot of headaches and saved money to the insurance company.

Words cannot express how amazing the experience was with Rod and the Investigators at investigations by Retired Cops was. It took a long time to get the courage to make the call, but I now wish I had done it sooner. For years I felt my husband may be cheating but I truly wasn't sure. I was embarrassed and scared. I made the call without knowing what to expect but right away they made me feel comfortable and walked me through the process. Knowing what a stressful situation this was they answered my questions, supported my need for confidentiality and discreetness and communicated with me throughout the entire process. If anyone is ever forced to face a bad situation such as mine I hope that they are wise enough to use Investigatins by Retired Cops. They are professional and knowledgeable. I recommend them to anyone in need and appreciate their ability to help me move forward in my life in a positive way. Excellent Company!

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.

I have used Linked Investigations for years. I had an incident with an employee in the past that taught me a valuable lesson. I now screen all potential employees. I provide Mike with basic information like a name, SSN if I have it, and an address or phone number and he can find a surprising amount of information on a person, for example, any criminal past or credit issues. The reports are thorough, timely, and worth it. I recommend him to any employer or anyone needing a background check.

Garrett & Associates has spent many years prior to licensing in the 1980's learning & honing our PI skills from "old school" professional described as true "gumshoes".

We have old as well as new resources developing daily and apply these to every investigation conducted in a confidential manner. It can get no better
