What do you love most about your job?

I love investigating cases. I was a criminal investigator with the US Marshals Service for 27 years. Every case was another challenge. The challenge of finding someone who didn't want to be found or caught. It is a difference challenge everyday and I love digging into information to find out as much as I can about someone who I am looking for. I am very passionate about my work as a private investigator because investigating is exciting for me.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I retired from the US Marshals Service after 27 years of tracking down Federal, State, and local fugitives, my first thought was why not continue investigating by starting my own private investigation agency. Now I can continue to do what I love, investigating and working for myself.
I have always been self motivated and NEVER needed anyone to push me since I consider every case a challenge.

Why should our clients choose you?

Your clients should choose me because they are getting a very seasoned investigator with decades of hard work and experience and a person who has a passion for getting the job done. Every case is a challenge. Every case is different. I have an incredibly drive to dig deep into the case and find out as much as I can to complete the task whatever that task may be. This is why I seized more money in fugitive cases than any other Deputy US Marshal in the Southern District of Florida during the 27 years in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale offices. I always go above and beyond the normal case to go the extra mile. Hard work always pays off, and you will be getting a hard charger....not someone who is content with just doing an average job.

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.
