Testimonials for Martin Investigative Services:
We have used Martin Investigative Services for three decades. Their work is exemplary; reports are perfect and their testimony is very professional, with great judge and jury appeal. We will not use anyone else for our investigations.
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.
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!
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++++++
Thomas G. Martin is a private investigator who is highly regarded and widely used by attorneys and other clients in Orange County and nationwide.
I called the team at Martin PI to see if they could help me find someone I’d lost contact with years ago. They asked me a few questions and 24 hours later I had the information I was looking for. Great job! I’d definitely use them again.
Successful people know that to be the best, you model the best. I cannot recommend Martin PI any higher! In a five-minute conversation with experienced people you can save thousands by bypassing sales types. They do this by cutting directly to the heart based on years and years of passionate pursuit of best practices and adding massive value to their clients. They are an invaluable part of my team and Tom is my most valued mentor!
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.
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 🙏
