Armando Zatarain

You're mostly likely here because you have reason to believe you have a need for a Private Investigator or Detective. If this is your first time hiring a PI the sheer number of available detectives can seem daunting... and it's true there's a lot of us folks. You'll find us almost everywhere on a simple search in Google, or an old Yellow Pages ad, and still others are listed at Craigslist and Backpage.

Believe it or not, it's really not that hard to choose the right Private Investigator. That's why we're designed and published this page to help you simply and easily sort out the right one. In our experience there are just 3 major points to consider when hiring a Private Investigator and they are printed below. If at any time you would like to speak with a licensed PI personally, please call us. We welcome your phone call.


Check to Be Sure The Private Investigator is Licensed

In most states Private Investigators are required to be licensed. In a few states not. California requires not only a license but a mimimum standard of experience before someone is licensed to do business. You would be surprised how many times men and women set up shop without a license hoping you'll not be the wiser for it. Checking and verifiying that a Private Investigator is licensed in California is simple. Get their license number and check with The California Department of Consumer Affairs. A link to their search feature is here. Try it right now and put in our license number 22864 and you see how it works. If you live and do business in California, never do business with an unlicensed Private Investigator.

Consider Experience & Expertise

Private Investigators are human beings. Each of us have different backgrounds, expertise, and talents for certain tasks. We are excellent at some things, good at others, and in some cases totally ineffective in certain specailty areas. You should first decide exactly what you want a Private Investigator to do for you, then search for the one investigator that is most likely to complete the task successfully. For example, if you suspect your spouse is cheating on you first check to find an Investigtor that has many years experience in covert surveillance. Before you decide to hire, have a clear idea of your target goal and communicate that directly with the prospective Private Investigator. Get their assurance that they have the talent and expertise to get the job done.

Consider Quality Before Price

Everyone loves a bargain, but when it comes to Private Investigation cheaper is usually not better. If you recently had a heart attack, would you look for the cheapest Heart doctor? Probably not, and you should view a Private Investigator in the same light. Not all PI's are alike. Some are better than others. The cheapest PI in town is usually cheap for a reason and the most important consideration is this: Outstanding Private Investigation is like anything else in life, you get what you pay for.
