About Our Investigation Agency

We have a long history dating back to a time when Private Investigators in Los Angeles were few and far between.

We started in 1930 with traditional Private Detective services, but eventually found our niche in litigation support and corporate investigations.

In years past, we worked cases such as missing persons locates and following cheating spouses. But, those long days of surveillance have been replaced by long hours recovering deleted text messages from a cheating spouse cell phone.

Similarly, a traditional stakeout or surveillance to uncover fraud or employee misconduct can often times be avoided by employee monitoring of their company issued cell phone; or by computer monitoring of their desktop workstation.

As technology integrates with every facet of our lives, so does our ability to provide you with computer crime investigation and online investigations.

And of course, we continue to provide our premium attorney services.


Exciting News Coming in 2014

We are expanding our computer investigations. In addition to our traditional investigation service, we will be certified in the following areas of cyber investigation:

CFCE - Certified Computer Forensic Examiner
EnCe - Encase Certified Examiner
ACE - AccessData Certified Examiner
CCENT - Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician
CompTIA A+
CompTIA Security+

These Forensic IT services certifications will strengthen our integration into our new practice areas of Computer Security, eDiscovery Support, Network Incident Response, Internet Data Security, Internet Privacy, and Computer Hacking.

Stay tuned for this exciting new transition!
