I am about to complete my 44th year as an investigator. This number combines my service as a supervisory Federal agent with the U.S. Department of Justice, and my current position as President of Martin Investigative Services.
Along this journey I have come across many outstanding investigators. When client demands and requests exceed our current staff of 20+ investigators, we often turn to other licensed and experienced investigators to assist us with our workload. We try to run a completely transparent agency, with the full understanding that our competition is also being vetted by our potential clients.
There is plenty of business for the top 1% of investigators, so it is with enthusiasm that I recommend what I believe to be the top five private investigators in Southern California other my own agency, Martin Investigative Services.
Use this as a guide to compare with our company. You can’t go wrong with any of the five for your investigative needs. All of these investigators are warriors, honorable people, capable investigators, street-smart and very fair.
