The Best of Orange County List

For over three decades, The Best of Orange County List has provided numerous referrals to local Orange County businesses that have been certified by Martin Investigative Services as trustworthy and reputable.

Martin Investigative Services’ list of trusted OC businesses.

There are a lot of “top 10 lists” and directories on the Web. This one is different.

With 50+ years experience as an Orange County private investigator (and as a former Federal agent), Thomas G. Martin and his staff have managed to identify a number of trustworthy, reputable local businesses.

We have compiled the following list of companies with whom we have had personal or professional experience.
