Choosing to working with Mr. Vasquez was a extraordinary decision. His responsiveness, promptness, and results were all top notch and I am thoroughly satisfied with his work.

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.

Mr Bowden appeared to know what he was doing and got a lot of information for my family. I was able to have constant contact with the investigator about each step. He also explained and assisted with addressing the issue and the best way to address the issue. He was professional and had excellent work quality and had great punctuality in getting the business done. I will use him again and recommend him to other people..

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

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!

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 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!

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.
