200% satisfaction of infidelity investigative services. Patient and kind, friendly to interact with. Helped me through the process of getting the evidence I needed to figure everything out and get the papers served within 24 hours. Cost effective and very professional. Wouldn't go with any other person in this area. Trust me. He is worth it!

I know it was a mission for Gary and his team, but they found the mother of my kids and now I can take her to court and get full custody of my boys. I know he went the extra mile… Thanks.

This group is elite in their business. Tactical, strategic, and calculated. They put in hours of preparatory work and surveillance well ahead of going on task. They are well informed of all laws and regulations surrounding their practice. Responsiveness is key in this field and they keep you well informed and present a thorough report at the end of any assigned task. Highly affordable and reasonable. I would not hesitate in contracting them for services. I am confident enough in that that I would be willing to put my own reputation on the line.
