Nighttime Video

We had a client in Chicago who was concerned that nighttime video of her spouse and his girlfriend walking out of the girlfriends apartment at 2:10 am was not as clear and crisp as she expected. Despite the video clearly identifying him and the other kissing good bye, she expected it to look like it […]

One Investigator vs. Two

What are the pros and cons of hiring one investigator vs. two? When conducting surveillance, any private investigator will tell you that two investigators can do a better job, stay discreet longer and maintain pursuit longer. With cases in spots like New York City, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Seattle, Miami, Dallas, Detroit, Chicago and the […]

Background Check

A big problem that we see everyday is with “background check” companies that are nothing more than a clerk running a name through a database. These companies do nothing more than run whatever information you provide through the public records databases they know of and spit it out on paper. No judgement is rendered, no […]

Super Instant Search Crap

Bad news for those of you who want to use a “super instant search” company to try to be an internet detective. Instant on-line searches and “net spy” CDs are simply not worth the money or time. Everyone wants to save money and get things done quickly. The same would be true of people investigating […]

Work Affairs

Videotaping Inside Residences Through Windows

Although videotaping inside residences through windows is not a specifically prohibited act for private investigators in some states, we as a company have a policy against doing so. We feel that even if it is legal, it goes beyond what is necessary and is both invasive and in poor taste to do so. We bring […]

Hidden Cameras

Every private investigator conducting infidelity surveillance should have a hidden video camera with them and available to use at a moments notice. If your spouse goes inside a bar to meet someone, the private investigator should go inside and get footage of what’s going on in there, too. They should not be sitting inside the […]

Specialized Private Investigators

Like any profession, there are specialized Private Investigators. In the old days, you had a “lawyer”. Now we have “family law” lawyers, “collection attorneys”, “tax lawyers”, etc. etc. Private investigators are the same. We specialize in Spousal Surveillance and Infidelity investigations and shy away from areas like missing persons cases, product liability, accident reconstruction, etc. […]

New York City has Concerns

For any prospective clients with a case in New York, please understand that New York City has concerns, like several other large cities, offers some special considerations surrounding spousal surveillance. Because people in New York get around using many different modes of transportation, traveling through intense traffic flows, we often recommend more than one investigator […]
