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’ve been practicing law for 50+ years, 45 as an ABOTA member, I’ve tried well over 250 cases to verdict, civil and criminal, and going to trial without the assistance of Tom Martin and his team is like riding a bicycle with your eyes closed. Sub Rosa, assets checks, finding people that don’t want to be found, the entire package – nobody does it faster, more completely, and for a better price. The earlier he’s involved, the better the result. If fact, that’s one of the best ways to AVOID a trial! Or a bad case. I learned a lot from this book – so it IS possible to teach an old dog new tricks!
