After an error dealing with email connecting, the Morrison agency went above and beyond helping me solve a private investigative matter!! Krissy not only provided me the requested report but answered several questions that I was unable to find the answer. Only problem was an incorrect fax number that caused me an extra trip to retrieve information!!

Shopped several investigators and this was the only one who sounded like they weren't going to take all my money for doing very little. Honest, understanding and straight-forward on options for taking care of my fidelity case. Thank you for taking the time to listen and offer suggestions.

I was in need of personal protection during an emergency move and received rapid response from Commandery Tactical. The response and offer of assistance enabled me to gain calmness, confidence and to be in action although I am disabled. Tony kept in communication with me through the entire process following up with me to ensure I was safe. Although I did not end up requiring the physical protection as Police ended up needing involved and the threat was removed from the house that did not negate the professionalism and compassion I was afforded. I would highly recommend this service and would trust with my life and property with them. I am forever grateful!!!

Wow what an amazing experience!!! Troy and his team were very helpful and they answered all my questions thoroughly. Made me feel very comfortable that I was getting the information I needed, and then over-delivered on the final results. Highly recommend his services for anyone looking for a quality professional investigator.

Steve was a true professional to work with. He was responsive through the entire process and I received the results of the investigation very quickly. His team went above & beyond what I was expecting. The cost was fair and there were no hidden fees. I hired them to provide background checks for a CPS court case. These background checks showed criminal activity, so they began investigating this activity. Not only did they retrieve court records in Texas, they also had investigators in another state track down court records. They did all of this work at the original price we agreed upon, it was all included in their background checks! Steve made sure that I was completely satisfied with the work. I will use Absolute Investigations for any PI work that I may need in the future and I highly recommend them to anyone.

Could not have been more satisfied with the services that this company provided. The managers, along with the investigators, were very professional and kept me constantly updated along the way. Definitely would recommend this company if you need a process server or a PI.

We were being sued by an alleged creditor, and we felt the suit was fraudulent. We contacted Cobra Investigative Associates to check into the matter. Within a few days Mr. Dove have evidence, that the alleged creditor was a real company, and they had purchased an old contract of ours. However Mr. Dove was able to determine that the debt had been sold illegally by a couple of dummy shell companies, and after providing that information to our attorney, the case got dismissed, saving us over $43,000. Thank you very much....

I was a bit sceptical when I first heard from Lloyd from CTS because I had already hired an investigation company for this same job who charged me over $1000 and told me they hit a brick wall and could go no further. Lloyd from CTS offered a fair rate and said if he didn't produce there would be no charge. He worked his butt off and kept me up to date daily as promised. Lloyd finally admitted to me that the other company did it's due diligence and he saw why they hit a brick wall. Even though Lloyd hit the same brick wall he gave me more information then I had before and I could tell he felt personally involved in my case and knowing my urgency went above and beyond what was expected of him. He was actually willing to keep going but I realized it really was a dead end at this point and felt bad about having him spending more time on it. Mind you, he was more then willing to keep going even though I know he realized that we were at a dead end and he would not be getting paid because as he said from day one, if he did not succeed there would be no charge . And there was none. I felt that Lloyd hated stopping not only because he couldn't complete the task (as it turns out no one could) but because he knew how important it was to me and he didn't want to let me down. If you want an investigator who cares, will work hard, keep you up to date like clockwork and is never too busy to answer your questions, look no further. After my first experience with investigative firms I never thought I use one again but after my experience with Lloyd and CTS I would not hesitate using them again and giving them a glowing recommendation.

I used Sleeping Giant to help me in finding my birth father. While the outcome wasn't exactly what I had envisioned, Cathy was able to help me get in contact with my brother and sister and helped set the groundwork for us to start building a relationship. I will be forever grateful to Cathy for all of her hard work in helping me solve a 34-year-old mystery. Cathy was compassionate throughout the entire process and never gave up! I would highly recommend Cathy and Sleeping Giant to anyone needing private investigative services.

I have used and seen Tamara and her staff handle very complex investigation, which include a skip trace of individual and asset that started in NV and ended up with person of interest being located in NC along with collateral involved being found. She and her staff are true professional, she has handpicked her team, they cross many diverse backgrounds and have wide array value add skill sets that make her team the best in DFW area and perhaps across the state. The team conducts monthly training classes on wide range of investigative, risk and security related topics. Plus her team also attends or has attended individual training sessions to further enhance there professional development

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.
