How To Hire A Private Investigator

How do you know you are hiring the right private investigator? Hiring the wrong investigator may cost you money, child custody outcomes and final court decisions. You want an investigator with a good amount of experience. Not only that, you want an investigator with a good amount of experience in the area or region they work in. I have worked the same region for over 10 years and have become very comfortable with my surroundings. If you hired an investigator that had over 20 years experience but only 2 years of that was in the area of the investigation, the knowledge of the area might not be up to par which could effect the entire investigation.

You probably have never hired a private investigator before, most of our clients haven’t. That’s probably a good thing. When out of your comfort zone and understanding of the private investigations world, it may make you feel vulnerable. You may feel embarrassed to ask questions because you don’t know if they are warranted or totally off the wall. Find an investigator that is compassionate about helping you out through the entire process, not just the investigations part. One that has an understanding of what you are going through and one that can give direction and guidance to lead the investigation in a way that is comfortable to you. I’ve had clients call me stating they have talked to past investigations firms that tells them what they need rather explaining why they need it. I like explaining the entire picture of the process.

You are trusting your life and possibly the direction it goes with someone you have no relationship or past experience with. It is important to do your research when hiring an investigator. A good place to start is looking at their website and affiliations. Most affiliations hold a high standard of practice for their members. Online reviews is another tool to use while hiring an investigator. I would not base your decision on just the reviews however. Most clients want to be kept confidential and not have their name attached to a review. Most states require an investigator to be licensed. They also list if their license is in good standing and if they have any infractions against them. Most of my Denver Private Investigator clients have found me online which is the new norm for today’s society. The second source for my clients is word of mouth and or reviews. If you do not know what direction to take contact us anytime and we would be glad to point you in the right direction.
