My fiancé is trying to get custody of his daughter but the courts wouldn't help him without an address. After trying to do detective work on my own and coming to a dead end, I came across thumbtack so I tried it and Curtis saw my request. He has done a phenomenal job fulfilling my request and done it all within hours for a very affordable price . He made my first P.I experience a great one and we are very grateful ! ! ! !

I have nothing bad to say about my experience. From the initial phone call through the receipt of the affidavit, STW Research & Investigation Services was very professional. Not only did Harry explain thoroughly how the process works, but he also worked with my schedule, and reimbursed me with no questions after I realized that I only needed to serve one party instead of two.

As a past employee of INTERPROBE and having trained and worked in the investigation world for years, I can attest to their superb abilities and skills. They will get it done. They have a very thought-out approach to assignments and there was never a disappointed client while I was there. Honesty and integrity. I hope I never have to, but I would only use this company!

Ted Metzger is a great private investigator. I hired him to take pictures of me and my girlfriend on the day that I proposed to her. He was very flexible, easy to work with, and did exactly what I needed him for! The pictures turned out great, and my fiance never even knew he was there!

Working with Alex was such a pleasant experience as he is very kind. Hiring private detectives can sometimes be a hit or miss, but I have absolutely no regrets. Alex is very intelligent, knows what he is doing, and more than exceeded my expectations. His level of professionalism is rare gem as he is attentive to the needs of the client, efficient in the amount of time given for a project, meets the deadlines, and innovative. He is very good at what he does and does not like to bring anything less than satisfactory to the table. Alex is bilingual in Spanish as well, which was a tremendous asset! I will definitely be working with Alex again.

Thanks to Steve, getting my papers served, and filed with the court, could not have gone more smoothly. I was experiencing anxiety because I had miscalculated my deadline and my project wasn't exactly routine. My fear of an unexpected glitch totally disappeared when Steve came to my house to pick up the documents. He was truly a calming presence. Overall, I can say Steve was highly professional, reliable and accommodating. I feel fortunate to have met him and would definitely use his services again.

Investigator For Hire

INVESTIGATOR FOR HIRE and Mr. Andre Allen have an approach in their research before the actual investigation takes place that is far above reproach with results that are outstanding. When the foot-work of the investigation is in place, I have found that the time of day or night does not make a difference in the intensity and effort put forth to get the job done.

My case was “unusual,” to say the least. As soon as I met Nate, he approached me with understanding and professionalism. His work ethic as well as his personality are outstanding. I was somewhat nervous prior to our first meeting, however I felt at ease while talking and explaining my case in details. He always answered his phone and whatever step we were going to take next, we came to a mutual agreement. I also met some of his colleagues and they are all professional and friendly. While I cannot write about my situation specifically, I can say that I spoke to several private investigators before hiring Nate and none of them were engaged like he was. Their prices are reasonable and I am definitely going to hire him if I need to in the future. If you are looking for someone who will listen, who is reliable and who will give you a best advice, hire him!

M. Rockford / MSA Drilling, I hired Homeland Protection Service for seven days to watch my production factory during renovations. Homeland did a fabulous job maintaining access controls of our delivery trucks, construction crews, vendors and employees and overall kept my facility secure. I noticed their staff paid attention, had initiative, offered some great ideas, looked sharp and were always available when I needed them. We received what we paid for and then some and I will absolutely use their services again at my other locations. Great job Homeland and thanks again!

About

We have the Department of Criminal Justice Services license number 11-2199. We are serving the Northern Virginia to Richmond and providing "the-best-of-the best" private investigators for divorce and other family law investigative matters, including child custody, cohabiting, asset searching, etc. We offer flat-fee, fully-estimated services and provided on a task-by-task basis and specified in writing. It is practically 'impossible' for a true professional to learn enough information through Thumbtack to design an investigation for success and economy. We are known for giving the 'best' professional advice to consumers, the following are: * Please be advised that your inquiry is sent to numerous and unverified individuals, including attorneys, one of whom may be representing your spouse or may catch the eye of an investigator working for your spouse. It is ill-advised to put any, I repeat, any details of your case on Thumbtack or use your real first name and last name initial or professional credential identifier such as 'Dr." A less-than-ethical investigator will, I repeat, will track down the name, location or go to court to find a court case in that name and contact the prospective subject of investigation. These investigators are known for offering a 'clean bill of investigation' in return for a handsome fee -- mark my word. * Defer to the phone to discuss any and all details of your legal matter. A public forum is no place to shop for investigative services. * Beware the 'non-refundable, no guarantee, open-ended retainer amount, with no plan and no written agreement specifying 'scope' and 'fees' as required by state regulation and in the event of complaint. For the average domestic (infidelity) case, you should spend at least an hour on the phone with an experienced investigator before they can arrive to an efficient plan that can be executed economically and to receive a quote for a fully-estimated fee. * Please consider shopping by 'experience' not 'geography' as all private investigators are not competent in every type of investigation. Look to the investigation agency's license number to help with determining 'length of time in business", in Virginia, the higher the last four (4) digits, the less time in business. Remember, a law enforcement background does not guarantee experience with civil court matters or domestic investigations, such as infidelity and child custody -- as police officers are trained in criminal matters or may only have experience sitting behind a desk attending to administrative matters. * Ask who mentored the owner of the company into the private investigation business, when and for how long it was mentored? What if there's no mentor? Ask where and when they gained their experience for your type of investigation. What if they have no mentor and no experience? Look elsewhere. Virginia's regulatory scheme allows just about anyone meeting very minimum requirements to become an agency owner. * Ask who is conducting your investigation and how long have they been a 'registered' private investigator. Registration through the state is no guarantee of experience. Is your very important legal matter being turned over to a rookie? For the average adultery case, no less than a solid five years of experience is acceptable. Ask for verification of length of time registered. Usually, investigators only get 'one shot' at getting the evidence you absolutely need to protect your marital rights. If handled improperly, your child could be put at risk of being absconded with by the non-custodial parent. * One, or two investigators? Mobile or fixed surveillance? Will the agency properly staff your investigation for success? Or, will they tell you more than one investigator will be used, when in reality, it's just a lone wolf attempting to get the subject from point "A" to point "B" through rush-hour traffic and later tell you 'he/she got lost at the light? Reports of investigators telling clients they conducted surveillance, when instead they were laying on the couch, remote control in the hand on your dime -- abound. Do you know how to 'guarantee' that the job was done? This agency specializes in family law investigations. Nationally known volunteer investigative specialist, consultant advising left-behind parents of family abducted children officially reported as 'missing' to law enforcement, locating these children with a 98% success rate and coordinating law enforcement's recovery of kidnapped and other missing children, such as teen runaways. We will consider mysterious adult disappearances on a case-by-case basis and can arrange for competent investigators no matter the location. We are very experienced with mobbing or 'gang stalking' situations, providing victims of this type of psychological terror with resources, investigative and non-investigative solutions in order to find relief and long before this phenomena became recognized main-stream and before such terms were even coined. What about an attorney not doing their job? Do you feel like you're working for them instead of the other way around? Are you feeling intimidated or that something's not right? If so, then you are probably right. Eight out of 10 callers to this agency (both men and women) complain that their attorney does not return calls, refuses to give them information about their case, uses intimidation tactics to keep them at bay or turns their case over to a low level and inexperienced associates. Contact us for competent, non 'high-rent' family law attorney referral. We do not receive a referral fee, but we know these attorney's fight and subsequently win our mutual clients' cases. Thank you for considering A Woman-Owned Detective Agency where your best legal interests and best interests of your children are our driving force.
