I usually don't write reviews, but let me just say that this man is probably one of the most brilliant investigators that I have met thus far. My 2 year old daughter was snatched from me for months. Needless to say I was totally lost. I reached out to Chris where he was able to locate my daughter in an instant. If you want an investigator that is fast, efficient, professional and Fairly priced. LOOK NO FUTHER THIS IS YOUR GUY!!!

I requested a skip trace on six individuals and even provided a lot of information that i had uncovered myself to help make they're job easier. I paid for the agreed upon service on April 24th and got a total of one skip trace returned. After several e-mails I asked for a refund and because I used Paypal, was able to dispute the charge to hopefully get a refund for the services that were never performed. I know that not all private investigators are as horrible as this one but STAY AWAY from this company.

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

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.

I hired Lynx investigations for a infidelity case. They were extremely thorough and found more information than I ever would have expected a investigation company to be able to unfold. They even sent evidence of mine off to a laboratory. Their on scene investigator continually produced photos that proved the infidelity that I would have never been able to get without their help!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Hired the service to investigate an unknown vehicle that was seen parked on my property while I was out of town. The investigator was very professional and provided several service options to resolve my issue. I appreciated the work done, and very much appreciated the honesty and confidentiality.

    He was very thorough. He took the time to understand what was going on and then figure out a strategy to get what we needed. I also appreciate that he was kind and understanding in a really hard time for me.

    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.
