Performed and reviewed by former Federal agents.
These days, there are a number of companies and web sites that perform background checks.
More often than not these services offer results of mixed quality by using dated sources that provide only pieces of information, with no quality assurance or professional review.
When you get a background check at Martin Investigative Services, we use the largest database of public information in the United States.
Equally important: Your results are personally reviewed by private investigators who are former supervisory Federal agents.
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.

USA Today: With my cell-phone number, a private eye found 150 pages on me
I gave my cell number to private investigator Thomas Martin, a former federal agent and now president of Martin Investigative Services in Newport Beach, Calif., and asked him to do his thing. A few days later a three-pound, 150-plus-page dossier arrived at my front door via FedEx. Martin didn’t trust regular mail given the nature of what it contained, which was tons of my private information.
“We didn’t even scratch the surface,” Martin told me later. He also made a point of telling me that I was “cleaner than a Safeway chicken.”
