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

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!

I retained WIS to conduct a delicate social media investigation. I had an immediate response, a tailored outcome that included a thorough analysis. All the contact I had was directly with the principal, and he was fantastic at explaining the process and alerting me to the realistic outcomes that I could expect to receive. I consequently had realistic expectations - and before I actually paid for anything - about what might be possible. I did not ultiamtely find everything I wanted but it was very clear indeed that WIS went well beyond the extra mile to help me, left no stone unturned in researching the issue and looking for an answer. As an example of going beyond the extra mile, WIS kept on the matter after sending me the report that I had paid for and voluntarily provided me with an update report that did contain additional useful information. Who else would stay on the case like that? I doubt it is industry practice, but it is the way WIS actually did things for me. I found WIS very polite, very responsive, very quick, very thorough and totally objective. I would have no hesitation in recommending WIS, and I personally will not waste a second looking elsewhere if I ever needed work of the sort WIS does to be done for me. It was an excellent experience, and good value for money as well.

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.

The law firm I worked for used Tausig and Associates for pretty much all surveillance, investigations, asset searches, process serving, etc. Ian and his team were always polite and professional. Ian had great client and staff communication at all times and was always a straight shooter. Ian'said work always impressed, and he could find things no one else could. Definitely the best investigator out there.
