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.

I would like to start off with please do some "due diligence" and I guess that was my error when I first started looking for a private investigator and I am beyond pleased with Sidestreet aka Joe was amazing and another tip; always meet the detective in person and ask for there creditials. And Joe was understanding to my needs in regards to my case and he kept me posted through out the process and unlike the first one I tried they wanted more money and I received nothing in return. So, I encourage anyone who's looking for a professional and understanding person Joe is the guy. Thanks you once again for your services! 👍👮

Mr. Paul Graf assisted us with a multi-state investigation commencing 2012. He was highly professional, on time and detailed in his work. Our case was complex and required an in-depth understanding of Federal as well as various States' respective criminal, cyberbullying and anti-trafficking laws. He exhibited patience during the entire process. We were so pleased with his work that we asked him to do a second report for us. I highly recommend Mr. Graf for work from a domestic (or overseas) background check to a more in-depth and complex analysis and investigation.

Jessica is one of the smartest people I have ever met. I have seen her find evidence with basically nothing to go on. The things she was able to accomplish astounded me. She uses creative, high tech means to find the evidence needed. She is resourceful, committed, and ambitious. Also, you can tell she genuinely cares about her customers. She is thorough, meticulous, and does not miss a thing! I have already referred a number of my business contacts to her.

I hired Alan for process serving, he was really prompt and thorough. I needed papers served to a corporation, bu the address was not good, so Alan did research on all the possible alternative address/registered agent of the company without even being asked.

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.

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.
