If you find yourself gearing up for a pity party today, I’ve included some stories in this post that might help you appreciate what you do have.Father’s Day can be an overwhelming day for many people. This year has been a tough one for myself and many of our staff, clients and friends. If you…
My PI agency has been performing marital surveillance jobs (and following the subsequent divorce filings) for over 38 years. So I have a unique perspective on divorce statistics, which I share in this post.
I also cover some critical things to do when and if you find yourself in the strange waters of divorce.
Over the past twelve years, I have given a handful of interviews about this case and written on particulars of the investigation. At one point, the family’s representatives considered us as an agency to investigate the case. I do wish we had been selected as the lead agency, and I often wonder what difference we could have made in this investigation.
Here’s what I would recommend for the case now.
It’s hard to choose a family law attorney out of thousands in Orange County. I’m in the unique position of having personally worked with many (if not most) local Orange County lawyers – on both sides. And I’m happy to provide referrals.

The football uniform was from the same high school my son graduated. It seemed like it was meant to be.
In September 2016, I received a call from Michael on my cell phone. He was doing well and had been sober for nine months. He wanted to go to lunch when he returned from another state where he was in rehab. I reminded him it was his turn to buy since I had treated him at McDonald’s the day he was found. He laughed but politely agreed.
Among the explosion of headlines about the Angelina Jolie / Brad Pitt divorce, some reports are claiming Jolie had hired a private investigator to uncover evidence that her husband was cheating on her with recent co-star Marion Cotillard. The French movie star issued a strong public denial of any affair and took the opportunity to announce that she was pregnant by her long-time partner to boot.
