Dauntless Investigations

I’ve been a private investigator serving Southern California for nearly a decade, and in that time have conducted investigations involving everyone from politicians to celebrities to the guy three doors down. In my experience, no one who’s hiring a private investigator is looking for one because life is great. At Dauntless Investigations, we know that your situation may be a rollercoaster ride that keeps you up at night. Emotions can run high, and confusing legalities and unanswered questions are frustrating to anyone. Whether you’re needing to look deeper into an untrustworthy employee (or ex-employee) or trapped in an increasingly uncomfortable relationship with more questions than answers, we can help. It’s our sincere hope to confirm that your spouse has remained faithful, but if they haven’t, then you deserve to know, not hope. Contact us today and we’ll get your peace of mind back.

What do you love most about your job?

I have an inquiring mind by nature, so once I come across a difficult problem to solve it’s difficult to let go. To be able to help people get their peace back and also have a puzzle to unravel is a genuine pleasure.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I wanted to help others who were still stuck in something I’d already been through. I remember vividly the pain and confusion of knowing I was being misled, but not understanding the how or why of it. As a private investigator, I’ve also found that the cases where emotions run high are better served by dealing with an individual, not a large company. I was tired of coming across cases that had fallen by the wayside because there’d been a half dozen people involved in the case and none of them cared. They saw cases as files to be moved from one filing cabinet to the next, when they should have been looking at the people they were talking to and realizing how many of them were still stuck in there own personal hell.

Why should our clients choose you?

Our dedication to finding the answers you need is second to none. At Dauntless Investigations, we strive to provide you with the fastest, most accurate and discreet service possible. Every case is unique, and together we’ll figure out what your specific case needs and make it happen.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

While surveillance obviously needs to be conducted on site, skip traces and social media reports can absolutely be conducted and written up remotely.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

Our services can be offered on a zero contact basis. Each case is evaluated electronically and our investigators were social distancing before it was cool. Most people didn’t even know they were there.

Private Investigators FAQs

Expand all

Prices can vary depending on your professional’s experience and the location of the investigation.

Your professional private investigator will be able to advise you on the full range of options, including what is most suitable for you. Use Bark to receive free quotes and get in touch with local private investigators today.

Some of the common services your private investigator can help with include:

  • Surveillance and counter-surveillance

  • Taking pictures and compiling evidence

  • Interviewing witnesses and conducting research

  • Conducting background checks and running credit reports

  • Process serving

  • Performing due diligence and debt recovery

There are several factors worth considering when choosing your private investigator. These include:

  • Referrals - You will likely be sharing personal information with this person, so it is important to find someone reliable. Do as much research on the private investigator as possible. Ask trusted friends for recommendations and always check reviews.

  • Office-based - Make sure they have an office. If your private detective only works out of restaurants and over the phone, that is a sign you should get out now. You need to know where to find this person if they don’t follow through on their obligations.

  • Experience - Ask about their experience and education. To make sure your job gets done right, find a detective who specialises in the task you need. Ask about their experience and the results of their past work.

  • Insurance - Most serious private investigators are insured. While it is not necessary for all jobs, if something were to happen during the work, you as the hirer, would be held liable if there was no insurance coverage.

  • Confidentiality - You are very likely to deal with sensitive information when you are working with a private investigator, and you need to be sure they will be discreet and respectful of information shared between the two of you.

  • Contract - Your initial consultation with a private detective should be free, and from there, they should be able to outline anticipated costs. If you choose to follow through with the work, make sure all fees and expectations are clearly outlined in a contract.

  • Be prepared - Brace yourself for what a private investigator may uncover. Be sure you are ready for whatever they may find, especially when it involves people close to you. You may hope the private investigator will prove your fears wrong, but be sure that you will be able to handle all outcomes.

You can be confident that any of the local private investigators on Bark will give you a reliable and professional service.

Before you choose a private investigator, you could read testimonials and details of their past work on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which displays reviews from past customers.

Absolutely! Although, it's important to carry out thorough checks on your personal investigator as well as looking at testimonials from previous clients, as your professional will be dealing with sensitive information, so you need to ensure that they're trustworthy.
