Martin Investigative Services is truly one of the best run organizations we have worked with. Fair, efficient and professional. Tom Martin in particular exudes confidence and experience and isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. That’s something we can rely on.
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.
After going to 2 average experiences with other Investigating Services, I came across Tom Martin. While we were having our first meeting, I knew things were different with him and they way he and his company works. There is a great deal of professionalism, priceless experiences and knowledge and an understanding of the depth of my situation. The guidance and wisdom I received has been excellent. I feel I have a person who will be straight with me, honest, and offer the correct options. Tom is a breath of fresh air for this industry. I am grateful and appreciative of Martin Investigative Services and will continue to use them as required.
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 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!
I decided to search for someone from my distant past and had very little solid info on that persons whereabouts, in fact, I wasn’t sure if that person was still alive. I called Martin Investigative Services and left a message with my interests. Within minutes I received a call from the President of the firm via his cell phone and an hour later I received a brief e-mail guiding me on the path forward. I took their next step and within the next five hours (a total of six hours from my initial inquiry) I had a complete report on that person containing data that I doubt I could have acquired from the numerous person search products that are on the net. This outfit was professional, prompt and comprehensive so I am most willing to provide my endorsement of their services.
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.

Martin Investigative Service did a fast and very complete job for me. I was impressed. Tom called twice and was very personable and professional. Even though I was 2 thousand miles away I felt as though I was in his office. I will definitely use this company again if there is need!
I truly cannot thank Tom Martin from Martin Investigative Services enough! I have been searching for over ten YEARS for my biological paternal grandfather and kept coming up short because A.) he was a drifter before the age of social media and B.) both my father and grandmother had passed and took all knowledge of his existence with them to the grave. I had no knowledge of his real name, birth date, address, et cetera.
I finally had enough and scheduled a meeting with Tom Martin. I told him how desperate I was to find my grandfather and gave him what very little information I had. Martin Investigative Services found my grandfather within HOURS of our meeting. It turns out my grandfather also lives in California and I was able to meet him two days later. Not only did he have my grandfather’s address, but he had spoken with his sister and his mother. It turns out I had a great-grandmother and great-aunt that were excited to speak to me!
The resemblance between him, my father and myself is uncanny. If not for Tom and his team, I would never had been able to fill the hole in my heart and finally solve the mystery my father was never able to in life. They provided my with family I never knew I had and I’ve finally (!) been able to fill my family tree. Thank you, thank you, thank you M.I.S.!
I contacted Martin Investigative Services and they got back to me immediately. The next day I had the info that I was looking for. Excellent service and results. Thank you.
Mr. Martin is a consummate professional. The whole package, refers other professionals where needed, doesn’t up-sell what a client doesn’t need. Truly first rate.
Wow! What great service! I requested the information I needed to find a family member that I had never met. I have been looking for this person for over a year.
Within 1 hour all the contact info was e-mailed to me about this family member. I waited until the next day to try to contact them. The first phone number I called the person I was looking for answered my call! The first thing the family member said was how did you get this number? I had tried all those online services that claim they have special information but all I ever got were more old number and dead ends. What I needed was the personal service of Martin Investigations. I talked with him on his personal cell phone and he was ready to answer my questions. I was able to have dinner with this family member that night and they brought family photos of my biological Father whom I had never met that had since passed away. I am in the process of building a relationship with this family member that I had never met and I am confident I have made a new friend!
Thanks Thomas Martin!

They were able to move on my request within 2 hours of the phone call and gather information as needed. Thomas Martin, never made it about the money, he actually went out of his way to try to save me money versus spend extra like most people. 5 stars to these guys, Trustworthy, Honest and not into raking up the hours for their benefit but doing what’s right for their customer/clients first.

Tom Martin Investigative Services came recommended by a friend who experienced a sensitive, high profile divorce here in Orange County, Ca. The expertise and intuitive nature of Tom and his team has been invaluable in assisting me, from installing a new home security system to legal team recommendations. Tom’s wisdom and experience in the field has been most helpful in navigating the treacherous waters of divorce, especially in the hotbed of OC. Working with him is a true pleasure and has enabled me to feel safe, secure and well connected to the top legal resources in the country.

My siblings and I were separated from our father since 1980 during a bitter divorce. We have been searching for him on and off for years to no avail. Martin Investigative Services opened this door for us to finally be reunited with our father. The last time I was with him and reunion photos are attached! A++++++
Tom is not only extremely thorough and knowledgeable, he does so with a great deal of integrity.
Tom is the man to call when you need someone you can rely on and trust implicitly.
I called Martin Investigative Services… I have to say he was very nice and helpful and gave me a lot of information. Thank you for your help, advise and free consultation.
Tom Martin has provided the best service and results for our firm and my clients for the last 7 years. I have hired Martin investigation services for very small and simple matters to extremely complex cases. In every circumstance, he got right to the point of the problem, solved without wasting our time or money. Was priceless in every matter I gave him.

His professionalism, knowledge and relatable warm personality made an impossible situation, possible. I highly recommend his services. Prompt, fair, trustworthy and kind. Thank you, Tom for helping me connect with my father after 35 years!
I had been estranged from my father for more than 16 years. My profession has me quite adept at conducting Internet searches, and I have access to some higher order people-tracking capabilities. But when it came to my Dad, all that brought nothing but false leads and dead ends.
My Dad is 87 years old now. For years I was sure he was probably dead. Yet I could never find his death certificate anywhere. And his older brother was still alive. So I always had that small spark of hope.
As a last gasp, I contacted Martin Investigative Services. Tom Martin assured me his databases were far more sophisticated than anything I had ever tried. I was skeptical to say the least. But since the search he suggested was surprisingly affordable, I gave it a try.
Within a DAY, he had found my Dad. A few hours before writing this review, I spoke on the phone with my 87-year-old father for 45 minutes, our first conversation in a decade and a half. He is doing remarkably well, and was very happy to hear from me. I can’t tell you what a load off my mind this is, eliminating that uncertainty. Thank you Martin Investigative Services. You are literally the answer to my prayers.
The company continues to provide excellent service. Their response time and customer service is on point, even when faced with my issues I tend to throw on their plate. I deal with state and federal regulators that value the quality of their report services. Happy to recommend them.
Absolutely THE BEST! Engaged Martin Investigations to locate my son who decided to disappear from my life. It had been over 10 years since we last saw each other. Where others had failed miserably Tom Martin took on the task and was able to locate my son within hours. Tom provided me with my son’s current address, phone number and even my son’s E-mail address. Fair pricing, upfront explanation of what I could expect and quick service, this was money well spent. If I could give Martin Investigations a 10 star review I would gladly do so. Thank you Tom!
I cannot recommend these guys highly enough.
They went above and beyond to ensure my inquiry was dealt with efficiently and professionally.
They were responsive, kind and helpful. They surpassed my expectations.
Martin was very professional and honest. Although the search was unsuccessful, he gave me helpful information at no charge to me. I would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone desiring information for any reason.
Mr. Martin and his team were extremely helpful with my recent inquiry. Not only were they extremely responsive, but they also went above and beyond to make sure I was receiving the information I was looking for and that I had full clarity on the situation. If you need help – this is your team.
This company is not only the best one, it is the only one in my book! Our sister hasn’t been seen in fifteen years. We’ve tried everything to find out if she was alive, dead in jail, etc. Mr. Martin’s company responded to me almost immediately and relayed the information to him. I was surprised to get a call not the next day but very shortly after leaving my message with his answering service which was after hours.
I told him of our dilemma and gave him what information I had, he was able to take that information and send me a detailed report of all the places (cities) my sister has lived for the past 15 years and also where she’s lived all the years before she became missing and possible relatives. This is how I know his report was spot on.
He made me feel like a valued customer, told me what he could and couldn’t do what might and might not be accomplished. He was very professional and very respectful. I wish I had found him on Google years ago.
I’m flying out to Texas next week to meet up with my long lost sister. Thank you Martin Investigators 🙏
We tried for 6 years to find our missing relative who went off the grid, hiring other PI firms to no avail. In one evening Martin Investigative resources found them! I highly recommend the Martin agency.

MIS was friendly, polite and knowledgeable. They took the time to explain what’s they do we’re completely transparent and demonstrated empathy towards my debt collection efforts.
MIS took the time to help me obtain more information on some traffic tickets from over 15 years ago that came up on a background check. With the county courts closed due to Coronavirus, I was struggling to find this information on my own and I needed to provide this information right away. Tom Martin took time out of his morning to help me with the additional information needed – he was very knowledgeable and delivered this within the same hour!
I am very grateful for Tom and highly recommend MIS. 5 stars all around. THANK YOU TOM!
Very informative, professional, and excellent source of advice that should be taken seriously and implemented.
Top Notch Professional Investigation Agency.
Mr. Martin responded immediately to my request… Was very informative and very helpful. Would recommend him!
Martin Investigative Services was the only one who helped me while I was going through my divorce. My ex-husband kept throwing all these terrible accusations about me around in court and I never had anything to throw back. Thomas Martin and team by far surpassed the investigative quality I was expecting and gave me all the ammo I needed and more to win my court case with my ex. He’s also a very well spoken man who kindly takes into consideration what the client is looking for, as opposed to most other companies just looking to get into your wallet and on their way.
Professional, competent and compassionate. I had utmost confidence in Tom Martin and his team from our first conversation and meeting. They were successful in getting the job done on very short notice and in an extremely challenging situation. I highly recommend his services without reservation.

I left an e-mail at 3am requesting a call back to discuss my daughter’s divorce case. Tom called me around 9am. Needless to say I was very impressed he called so quickly.
I explained why I was needing his services. My daughter’s conversations, in her home, seemed to be common knowledge to her soon to be ex-spouse.
Tom LISTENED then responded with answers and questions, so as to be clear of what we were needing from his company.
Tom has a wealth of knowledge about situations similar to ours.He shared willing services available and made options clear as to how he could best meet our needs. Not the most costly options, but which ones were best suited for.our situation.
Tom ask us questions about where we were in the divorce process and gave us multiple ideas on how to achieve the results we were seeking. Seemed to us Tom cared when he did not have to.
Would I and should you consider Martin Investigative Services?
YES!!! and I believe the results and how you are treated will satisfy us, as clients, they way we wish every business so be.
I try to tell it like it is,positive or negative. So this is as positive a review as I have ever written.I was extremely blessed today to have Tom Martin come into our lives.
