We have been using Tom Martin and his company for over 5 years now. They do all of our employee background checks. They have very quick turn-around time and the work is always professional and complete. If we ever need further assistance or clarification on something, his staff is always happy to help. I recommend Tom to others on a regular basis.

Martin Investigative Services is the most thorough people search service I have found. They take the time to do a proper search and do their best to help you find answers to your questions. Martin PI was able to put to rest a long time family mystery and we are very happy with their service.

Martin Investigative Services completed a search for a long lost relative of ours. As a family, we just wanted to know whether that individual was still alive and where they could be. They had disappeared many years ago and we were just looking for peace of mind, which Tom and his staff provided. What impressed me the most was how quickly and diligently they worked. Outstanding customer service.

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.
