Mike and Deb Clemente are excellent private investigators. I hired them in May 2014 to surveillance my husband and his interaction with 6-years old daughter, for a custody case. I was in a big rush as the court date was approaching. Mike and Deb made themselves available the same day I called them. They came to my home, listening very carefully and understood clearly every detail. They reviewed all my documents carefully. They are very sharp at getting all important details down and no missing any information. They used multiple approaches: - close up surveillance, - undercover investigation – taking witness’s affidavits – cameras, -they even screen the garbage (which is critical in some cases), etc. During the investigation Mike and Deb were very flexible and seek a lot of input from me daily on deciding what would work best as subsequent steps: - methods, - steps to take, etc. I felt I was always in control and a big part of making the decisions. Flexible , adaptable and very approachable. We communicated several times each day, and I was kept very informed. I could call them at any time. They are licenced to appear in court as witness testifying on the results of the investigation. Mike and Deb discovered many facts and prepared a good report in a timely manner. They go beyond and above and keep the prices competitive. I highly recommend them !! If you are a believer, you may want to know they pray for you and your case.

This is quite possibly the most professional, effective, meticulous, compassionate team of investigators you could engage. They have decades of experience and it shows in their results which will be presented to you in a through well prepared report appreciated by attorneys and judges. They genuinely want to help you achieve the results you are looking for and simply will not quit until the job is done successfully and questions are answered. They are creative, strategic, smart and always professional yet compassionate in their approach. Without hesitation Deb and Mike are the best investigative team in the state.

I think they are an excellent pair of private investigators. They have done a terrific job with this still ongoing investigation. They are very personable and professional even never having met them but just talking to them on the phone. Both of them care about their work and the work they are doing for me/us. I know that the best results will be achieved. I have never had to hire investigators before, but Deb and Michael make their profession shine. I am hoping that I will someday get to meet this terrific pair. Kudos to them and their work!!

My company has used Chart House Research & Investigation services for years. From locating skip tenants, conducting primary residence investigations, and conducting pre-rental background investigations on applicants and our employees. With out disappointment they have provided accurate & timely investigative support services for our busy property management office E. Perez, NYC

Though we are across the country from Chart House, we experienced quick response to our initial inquiry. This response was professional, comprehensive, and thoughtful. Further communications built on this initially good impression. Adam is an impressive investigator, from his initial response to his detailed, timely responses. Thank you Adam!!! Dennis I

Adam is awesome! I asked if he could locate private information on a social security fraud case I was working on. I only had the person's first name and some vague family history. He got right on it and had my results in two days. He more than met my expectations.

I can't even begin to express how happy my husband and I are that we found Paul. We had previously met with two other private investigators that weren't reliable whatsoever. Our calls weren't being returned. We never knew what was going on and we felt that we were being taken advantage of and left in the wind. I had contacted Paul and the day of he had met with us. He was very down to earth and was very understanding of our needs.. The following day we had met with his son Dan who was great as well! Our case is finisning up now and I feel like a weight has been lifted off of our chests! Thank you SO much Paul and Dan. I would highly recommend you guys.

I don't usually write reviews but I felt this one needed to be written. The other day my husband and I had the great privilege of meeting Paul. It is rare these days when you come across someone that is so honest, genuine and straight forward as he was. We hired Paul as a private investigator and were very pleased with our decision. He showed compassion as well as understanding in a very upsetting and difficult time. He was very professional, polite and handled our case with the utmost expertise. He knows what he is doing. Paul would be an asset to anyone who is looking to hire an investigator. I would highly recommend him. K.

I had an excellent experience with Paul as an investigator. He went above and beyond my expectations when hired. Based off of my experience I can offer only the highest of recommendations for him. No matter what the case may be, hes the investigator to go to. He was insightful, productive, precise, efficient, and considerate. He's extremely knowledgeable with what he does. With his abilities, experience, and dedication, I have no doubts that you will be exceptionally pleased with Paul if you hire him.

Assisted me in obtaining $500 that was legally owed to me. I live out of state and it would have financially moot to collect this money through the courts. Ed "got the job done"quickly and fairly saving me time and worry.

I recently hired Accurate Investigations to confirm suspicions of a cheating wife and they did not disappoint. They got the job done in a short period of time as their team managed to locate and follow my wife and provide evidence. If you need investigation services, Accurate Investigations is the way to go.
