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.

I have worked with several private investigators in my life – one about 20 years ago – for a family matter and recently, with Thomas G. Martin. The investigator from my past was not very professional and it was not a great experience. To the contrary I was very impressed with Thomas Martin who I met at his Newport, CA office, and felt confident when discussing working together regarding corporate theft. He is a true veteran in an industry that is racked with imposters. Trained by the FBI, it is clear that Martin knows his stuff. I also spent quite a bit of time on his website and was very impressed with the Case videos, and also his past news media coverage. His manner is engaging, and he made me believe that his company not only has the best people, but also the latest tools and the experience required to do any investigative job the right way and get results.
I would highly recommend Thomas Martin – especially when it comes to employee theft, which could probably save companies a lot of money if they hired him just to be trained as to what to watch out for!
Tom Martin is thorough, knowledgeable and trustworthy. We have used Tom and his team to great success and will continue to do so.
