Who hires private investigators?
Law firms, corporations, insurance companies and private parties all have reasons to procure the services of a private investigator.
How do private investigators charge?
In the majority of cases, private investigators will charge an hourly rate. Hourly rates can vary. Nearly all investigators will ask for a retainer fee before taking a case.
How should I contact an investigator?
When contacting an investigator, if discretion is important, you should make sure that you are not using an email or a phone number that you share with others.
Additionally, if you are emailing or leaving a voice-mail you should give explicit instructions as to when you would like your message returned.
What types of things are professional private investigators NOT allowed to do?
Although PIs have access to information the general public cannot obtain, they must obey the same basic laws as ordinary citizens. Three big things they can’t do:
- Pose as law enforcement officers
- Wire tapping
- Obtain cell phone records via pre-texting
Will my call be confidential?
Will the person find out they are under surveillance?
Surveillance is an acquired skill requiring a constant, real-time evaluation. If there is any question, we always choose to remain covert.
