Newport Beach private investigation case studies:
Here are a few real-life examples of recent private investigation cases we’ve had in Newport Beach:
Newport Beach Case Study:
A prominent Newport Beach attorney representing a large beer manufacturer contacted us. We met with the attorney and the company executives at their corporate headquarters.
The company had a problem: large amounts of inventory were simply missing. They had a certain amount of product on hand, but their internal accounting told them they should have more money.
We quickly discovered a number of employees were smuggling product out of the factory. The results from this investigation were handed to the District Attorney. As a result of our investigation, 17 people were arrested, prosecuted and served jail time.
Employee theft is always a problem, but in times of economic distress, this problem can worsen. Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.
Newport Beach Case Study:
The Vice President of Administration at a major insurance category saw us on TV. We met with executives at their Newport Beach office to discuss the case.
The company believed they had a number of people faking injuries in order to receive worker’s compensation payouts, and they wanted us to investigate.
Our private investigators provided surveillance on a number of individuals and discovered 12 people faking injuries. These cases were referred to the local District Attorney, as well as the Office of the California Insurance Commissioner, so these individuals could be prosecuted.
False worker’s compensation fraud costs companies millions of dollars a year. The private investigators at Martin Investigative Services have the experience and expertise to crack down on these false claims and provide court-admissible evidence of their fraud.

Newport Beach Case Study:
A Newport Beach attorney heard us on a radio program. The law firm had a client who had won a judgment but the party who was supposed to pay the judgment claimed they did not have the funds to pay it.
The law office hired us to perform an asset search, and see if we could discover hidden funds.
Using a confidential source and our internal computer system, our private investigators found two bank accounts with a total of $115,000 in them. These funds were subsequently seized with a writ of attachment.
Our private investigators regularly discover hidden assets in a number of cases. Contact us for a free, confidential consultation.

Over 40 years of press.
One of Mr. Martin’s Valentine’s Day clients is a doctor whose wife, also a doctor, aroused his suspicions when she told him she would be changing her regular daytime shift on Tuesday and instead working until 8 p.m. Like virtually all private detectives, Mr. Martin won’t reveal his client’s names.Details
Tom Martin was on a Tokyo subway when poison gas struck down passengers in five underground trains, killing 10 people and injuring nearly 5,000, including scores who remained critically ill. The closest train was a block from the one carrying Martin.Details
Like most retired federal agents, Thomas Martin wears a navy blue suit.
“It’s what we sleep in,” he says.
Old habits can die hard and after a career as an agent, the crisp suit is just one throwback. The other is salty vocabulary that I can tell he’s doing his best to restrain.Details
