When I first started my search for a private investigator it was overwhelming to say the least. I needed someone to find out the relation between a few people and when Ashley reached out I of course was skeptic. But BOY am I glad I hired her. She only charged me $75, and had a 24 hour turn around. She was very professional and timely, and not to mention took the time to hear out the reason as to why I needed this information and took me seriously. She knew and understood how important this was, which I appreciate. If I ever need any kind of service like this again, I would for sure hire her. I’m a heartbeat.

PROFESSIONALS TO THE MAX!!!! Bill not only gave me the confidence that he could execute this mission without any problems, but he also gave my client the information he was looking for. The client was more than happy for all bill did. As an Investigator and a business owner, I highly recommend Bill and Coast Investigations to anyone. They are true professionals and that you don't find everywhere. Thanks Roger

Detective Michels was extremely helpful because his pricing was very reasonable which afforded me an outcome I never thought would be possible. He is very knowledgeable about his profession and gave me insights into the options that are available to my particular situation. He answered my every question with a lot of patience,seemed to be really empathic which for me is very vital. I highly recommend him

This company and its owner and founder, Dana Ceasar, are amazing! I previously hired an investigator who was unable to serve the defendant in my case for well over six months. I emailed this company, and her professionalism, style, tone, and understanding were all I needed to hear to know this company was the one! BUT, that's not even the icing on the cake! They found and served this person in LESS than 24 hours! I am a lawyer myself, and I know what it takes to get something done well, right, and thoroughly! Dana and her company have the IT factor. Also very important to know about her company is she doesn't try to sell you a bunch of what you don't need like a lot of the other investigation and security services do. Yes, I keep saying she because she deals with you personally! And then she sends her people out for you! She goes right for the facts; she collects from you what she needs; and she moves in with focus and diligence. By the time I got home three hours later, the work was DONE! I sat down with friends and had a drink, refreshed and relaxed! Now, I hope you never have to go after someone, but if you do, Ceasar Investigations and Security Services, LLC is your woman, your company, your GLADIATOR!

Rocky was a wealth of knowledge for the novice shooter. He quickly established a comfortable shooting environment and covered the core principals of handling and shooting a firearm. I couldn't be happier with his service.

I was more than happy with the work they did for me and the time period with which they completed the work. Both the administrative contacts and investigators made sure I was comfortable with the process and our goals. I recommend them to anyone for investigative work. I rated them a four based on the fact that they were unclear about their charges.

DON'T LOOK ANY FURTHER! This is the best private investigating agency, ever!!! I had a pretty good feeling that my wife was being unfaithful, but couldn't prove it. That's when I called Maverick Process Service & Investigations. They caught her kissing another man the day after I hired them. Brian, the owner, really cares about his clients. After he broke the terrible news to me about my wife's infidelity, he checked on me several times to make sure that I was okay. A week before I called Brian, I hired another P.I. company for $75 an hour and they basically did nothing, and took my money, so be careful. You will not be disappointed with Maverick Process Service & Investigations, they do honest work at a fair price and will get you the proof that you need...call them today!

Great communication from the beginning via phone and email. This is a very professional company. We received great tips from the CEO personally that led us in the right direction. The staff communicates well with us and reply quickly. I don't want to go into too much detail since the case is ongoing, but I highly recommend this company if you need a private investigator.

Working with Kevin Perez has been nothing short of amazing! from the moment I spoke with him, his words put me at ease. He helped me locate the address to where my Daughter and her Mother were currently living so I could further pursue my visitation/custody case. I think Kevin Perez is excellent at his job because before I reached out to him I checked with other Private Investigators who said they were unable to help or just didn't return my call. I am more than pleased with the work that Kevin Perez has done, and will immediately refer anyone who needs help that may require his service. THANK YOU!

Very fast and efficient at process serving. He was really passionate about finding the exact person he was supposed to serve. I liked how he took pictures of the person being served. Overall I would say this was a job well done. Thanks!

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.
