I was met with excellent service, completely worth every penny. He was extremely quick at responding to me and the report was sent to me with-in 15 minutes. I've worked with other private investigators in the past and by far Nathans Investigations and his staff have provided me with the most information and peace of mind during the entire process. I would completely recommend his agency to anyone seeking to do an investigation. What I liked the most was his 100% honesty and how on top of things he was. He didn't try to "sell" me on anything and he was very upfront about what I would or would not get on this report. I am so grateful I made the decision to go with Eric.

I used the services of Chris Cavallo for a domestic surveillance case because I thought my wife was cheating on me which she was. Mr Cavallo and his team of investigators were able to get me the proof I needed to go into court with documented evidence(Film and Video)along with a well written report which became part of the legal proceedings when I filed for Divorce. Needless to say this was an embarrassing situation and the way Mr Cavallo handled this along with another one of his surveillance Team members put me at tremendous ease and was beyond professional throughout the whole experience. He even was thoughtful enough to follow up with me a month later just to see how I was doing. I would recommend him without reservation and I am sure there are very few Investigators like him that bring such a “human factor”to his trade and no one can argue with his experience and results that he gets for his clients!

I received a consultation that left me feeling very confident and understood as a client. I have a myriad of needs and problems that are very complicated, including issues with child witnesses and child custody. I feel like the criminal background that this detective adds to her work as a private investigator is highly valuable to my case. I also feel that after these criminal charges are cleared we will be able to pursue civil damages which is very important because misuse of the justice system is an offense against our entire way of life. I feel like this investigator is going to respond to all areas of my case and help a pulled my rights as a private citizen while also serving my needs as a full-time single mom who is being railroaded by a combination of criminal and civil wrongdoing. Thank you for your help

My experience with Jimmy was nothing less than imaculent. Of all the investigators i have spoken to he was the only one who sincerely cared about my situation and already had information prepared from the start. Wonderful person to work with. I couldnt have requested anyone better. And relieved to finally be free of assumption and now know the truth thanks to him.

I put off hiring Private Investigators for years and i cam across a situation i had no choice but to hire. I interviewed many and no one seems to take the time to actually listen to my needs and concerns like Jose. Thank you again Jose for all your help.

I needed some assistance to visit one of my warehouses where the staff was being difficult and intimidating. Juno's presence made me feel much more confident and allowed me to deal with the staff without incident. Additionally, the staff at the warehouse made several insulting remarks to Juno and his partner and he handled it like a true professional and didn't bat an eye. I would highly recommend them.

We had an apartment in our complex broken into at least three times within a short amount of time. We felt uneasy and decided to hire Sig on a temporary basis. From the moment I called them I felt I was in good hands. Very professional. I would highly recommend them. The guard that came out was also professional and I knew I was in good hands and was able to get a good night of sleep.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What does a private investigator do?

First and foremost, good private investigators follow laws. Unlike on TV, they don’t break in windows or hack into hospital computer systems to get you intel. When you hire a private investigator, you’re hiring a professional to gather facts and find information for you. Although they can’t obtain certain information (such as health records), they do have access to information that most civilians do not. Often private investigators are hired to perform surveillance or background checks or investigate cases such as adultery, child custody, missing persons, hidden assets, or debugging, and theft or other crimes.

Private investigators can be hired to interview people and provide that information to the client, perform photo or video surveillance, monitor activity at a location where you suspect criminal activities or questionable behavior, track a person’s movements, find missing people, do deep-dive background checks, and more. Private investigation can be helpful if you’re trying to get a court order but need evidence. Private investigators can also help find birth parents. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210 per hour.

What does a private investigator cost?

Private investigation isn’t just for blockbuster action movies. Hiring a private investigator can help in all kinds of situations ranging from finding a birth parent to improving personal security. Nationally, the average price range for private investigation is $70-$210, although pricing often hovers between $40 and $100 depending on the complexity of the services you need. Where you live in the country will affect your costs for private investigation; larger cities have higher business overhead and a higher cost of living, which in turn means higher service rates. The complexity of your case can also affect cost. A basic background check may have a flat rate, while hiring a private investigator to help with your child custody case may require more legwork and research, and therefore cost more. Some private investigators work on retainer. A retainer is essentially a nonrefundable deposit you pay to the professional — meaning you have retained their services — who then works against that amount. Here are some examples of average private investigation costs:

  • Hourly rate: $60-$70; costs can vary based on current fuel prices.
  • Flat rate: $100 for comprehensive background investigation services.
  • Retainer: $1,500 minimum retainer required by some pros before starting work.
