Testimonials for Seeing Life Through Private Eyes
Full of nuggets of wisdom… an absolute gold mine of information on how to get through a crisis and life in general with the help of a reputable P.I.
Tom Martin’s book is a blueprint for conducting private investigations for client’s who find themselves in a bind and needing help to get evidence and facts to support their legal case. His case stories reflect an in-depth knowledge of how to investigate and interview to get results. A must read for any aspiring investigator and client seeking expertise.
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!
Tom is not only the best investigator I have ever known and who worked on our highest profile cases but his “ethics” and “street smarts” allows the pages of this book to reap with sage and practical advice for us all. He’s always protected my clients, now I have ways to protect my family. A must read for every parent.
Finally an investigative and instructional book, blended perfectly in a professional and personal diary of what works and what doesn’t. A must read for anyone who finds themselves mired in any negative life situation.
