Case Study: Surveillance
Orange County Cheating Spouse Case
A wife, and mother of three children, met with us in our Orange County office. She suspected her husband was cheating on her but she needed proof.
Our private investigators performed a minimum 4-hour surveillance on her husband. We provided video of her husband and his lover going to a local hotel.
We referred the client to one of our preferred attorneys who assisted in obtaining a divorce decree.

Stats on cheating can seem overwhelming, so we looked to Thomas Martin, a former FBI agent and president of Martin Investigative Services, a California private investigative service. With 38 years under his belt, Martin could write a book. So he did, online at investigatorconfidential.com. An entire chapter is about determining if your partner is cheating.Details
One of Mr. Martin’s Valentine’s Day clients is a doctor whose wife, also a doctor, aroused his suspicions when she told him she would be changing her regular daytime shift on Tuesday and instead working until 8 p.m. Like virtually all private detectives, Mr. Martin won’t reveal his client’s names.Details
