Tom Martin is a private investigator who has been in the business for over 50 years. He has used all of the latest technology and offers free consultations. We keep your situation private, and you are allowed to submit sensitive information.

MartinPI Private Investigation Case Study:

Someone is watching you.

A well-respected civil law firm in San Francisco retained us recently to provide legal advice to financial institutions within the San Francisco financial district. They were interested in our computer system in-house and how it could be used to assist with asset searches and recover monies owed by current judgments.

One of the senior lawyers shared with me her concern that someone was tapping her phone and computers while her daughter was working for her law firm at home.

We suggested that we could conduct an electronic eavesdropping detection sweep at the woman’s home. This was not an optional service but was an integral part of our business. Our website, bug sweep, was recommended to her.


Our staff conducted a three-phase, two-day sweep of the subject’s home. The technician discovered a tiny camera hidden in the main bedroom. The subject was immediately advised that she suspected her husband, who had recently divorced.

Our investigators devised a plan for the husband to take their children while our client was away on business. Our surveillance team monitored the house, and soon after she left, our investigators saw the ex-husband entering the home with a key.

Our staff had previously installed cameras and recorded our client’s ex taking out his hidden camera from their bedroom. The local law enforcement agency was notified, and charges are currently pending with the Santa Ana police department and the district attorney’s office.

Is the private investigator allowed to testify before a court?

A Santa Ana private investigator who is skilled in the law and knows how to use the system in California will be a valuable asset.

While court-admissible evidence should be obtained from investigations, your investigator should be available and willing to testify in support. This experience and background are not common among private investigators.

Martin PI only gathers court-admissible information, and all investigators in a court are considered experts.

Is there a physical location for the private investigator?

An office is essential for a private investigator. Private investigators will never have an office in California. They prefer to meet at restaurants or communicate via email or phone only. It would be best if you immediately eliminated these investigators from your consideration. They will not be able to locate you again after you have paid the payment.

MartinPI has Corporate offices in Orange County and provides services across California, the U.S.A, and a few foreign countries.

Is it clear that the private investigator outlines the fees?

Contact an Santa Ana private investigator to discuss the service you want and how much it will cost.

An expert private investigator will give you an accurate estimate and not charge more than the quoted price.

A reputable private investigator should never charge for your first conversation.

MartinPI will always give you an estimate after our first conversation. All consultations are confidential and free of charge.

Are you able to feel a strong gut feeling about the necessity of a private investigator?

Private investigators will tell you that intuition is often correct. Ask yourself if it feels good to speak with someone for the first time. How does your gut feel?

You should ensure that the private investigator fully understands your situation. They should make you feel that they are working for your best interest. Money should never be considered before your needs.

MartinPI will always try to understand your particular investigative needs and let you know if we can help you so you can move forward.

You wouldn’t trust anyone unless they are a highly qualified private investigator.

Case Study: Private Investigation

San Diego overturned a conviction.

Another private investigator service referred Martin Investigative Services to the president of a large software company in San Diego. Our clients were pleased with the cost of our private investigator.

His stepdaughter accused the client of rape and was convicted in court.

The client declined to pay the charges. Martin Investigative Services was skeptical in a case such as this. But he continued to insist that he didn’t do it.


Martin Investigative Services’ private investigators reviewed the trial transcripts in great detail and then interviewed and interrogated witnesses.

The client was cleared of any wrongdoing by new witnesses who were interviewed until the smoking gun was discovered. The stepdaughter and mother conspired to accuse her of rape to get all assets in the divorce case.

The guilty verdict was reversed, and the charges were proved false. The client was released.

After 50 Years of investigative service, you can be confident of our committed service!
