I live in the Bay Area of California. I needed assistance to ascertain whether a concerned relative’s home in Southern California had been electronically penetrated or bugged. I spoke with several in house corporate security officers that I have worked with in the past and they all had Martin Investigative Services as their first choice.I called and talked with Tom Martin. He suggested an electronic sweep of the home and was very thorough about what it would and wouldn’t accomplish. He was great to work with, keeping me and my relative up to speed on progress. His team was courteous, reassuring and efficient. I highly recommend Tom and his team.

Case Study: Bug sweeps
Los Angeles Bug Sweep
The office administrator at a Los Angeles law firm visited our Los Angeles office. The problem: they knew they had an internal leak. When they went to court they were getting hit over the head – as opposing counsel had detailed information which they should not have had.
After a sweep of their offices, our private investigators found 2 listening devices: one in the boardroom, and a second one in one of the partners’ offices.

Martin Investigative Services completed a search for a long lost relative of ours. As a family, we just wanted to know whether that individual was still alive and where they could be. They had disappeared many years ago and we were just looking for peace of mind, which Tom and his staff provided. What impressed me the most was how quickly and diligently they worked. Outstanding customer service.
My partner and I have utilized the services of Martin Investigative Services for in excess of 15 years. The services provided have ranged from simple background checks to covert surveillance and investigations into corporate malfeasance/conversion/theft of assets.
I have found Martin’s investigators conscientious, qualified, and most important of all, very credible to triers of fact when their testimony was necessary. Critical to any busy trial attorney is time. I have also found that upon turning an assignment over to Martin Investigative Services, I do not have to micromanage the assignment. It is done promptly and efficiently, with an eye toward the financial resources and capabilities of the client.

Former Orange County Superior Court Judge
When I found out I had been scammed out of a good chunk of money I immediately took to the web in search for a private investigator to assist me with my case.
After calling 5 agencies I came across Martin Investigative Services. When I called I spoke with help representative that was more interested in helping me solve my problems then up selling me on how amazing he is at his job. Actually is what the opposite. He told me that I was probably not a good fit for them based on the info I was sharing, but he said you know what let me run this past a few of the guys in the office and let me see what we can do.
A few hours later I received a call from the owner Thomas Martin. He told me that he was going to try and help me out if he could. We both knew it was a long shot, but it was worth taking the chance.
Several hours later I received a call from Thomas notifying me that they had found the individual I was looking for. I can’t tell you how relieved I was to get the news. I know they worked extra hard on my case and probably did way more work than what they charged me. But I asked Thomas if I could write a review for him and his company.
They are just great people and I wish everyone I did business with ran their company like Thomas runs his.
Keep up the great work guys.
