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.

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.

I recently had a situation that required the services of a private investigator. I asked my friends who was best and the name Thomas Martin kept popping up. After meeting with Thomas, I was impressed by his no-nonsense approach and the clarity with which he described the process. Most importantly, the situation is now resolved and Thomas played a big part in the successful conclusion to things. He did exactly what he said he would be able to do, in the time-frame he said it would take and for the amount we agreed upon. In this day and age, that is a rarity.
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.
