Author of Destiny's Doorstep
I am proud to state that I have exclusively used the professional services of Tom Martin and his firm for more than 20 years. Whenever the need arises for a private investigator, the only name that I consider for my clients is Tom. In my 40 year career as a family lawyer, I recognized the importance of professional investigators. Unfortunately, many of the investigators that I have encountered have not satisfied the professional standard that I expect. I have utilized the firm in some very delicate and discrete investigations and situations requiring a strong security presence. In every engagement, both my clients and myself have been completely satisfied. I have I have no reservations in endorsing Tom and his firm for any investigative assignments.
