Los Angeles private investigation case studies:
Here are a few real-life examples of recent private investigation cases we’ve had in Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Case Study:
A large metal manufacturing firm in Los Angeles was referred to us by their corporate attorney. We met with the company at their corporate office.
The problem was that they had $500,000 of materials that had gone missing in Mexico. They wanted us to discover the source of the theft and recover the materials.
After performing surveillance in Mexico City and Tijuana, our private investigators located the stolen items. We also discovered the theft was perpetrated by the client’s employees in both Tijuana and San Diego. As a direct result of the investigation, 3 people were arrested and prosecuted by the Mexican Federal Police.
Martin Investigative Services is one of the only US-based firms to perform private investigation in Mexico. (The alternative of hiring a private investigator based in Mexico is a risky proposition.) Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.
Los Angeles Case Study:
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.

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.
Attorney at Law Silverstein & Huston
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.
