If you are at the point where you are considering employing the services of a private investigator then you have reached the conclusion that you are out of your depth and require help.

An experienced private investigative firm such as Justica Investigators can provide a vast array of services such as surveillance, investigations, polygraph testing to name a few.   However selecting a private detective can be a daunting task as you will have no previous experience upon which to base your decision.  Justica Investigations would like to share a few fundamental points to consider when choosing a private investigator.


Although the majority of companies advertise in the local telephone directory and other publications there is no substitute for a referral so contact other attorneys and other professionals who have used private investigators and get recommendations.


Interview the Investigator or Firm

Once you have narrowed down your list of possibilities, contact all necessary agencies to inquire if that individual or company possesses an up-to-date business license. Take the opportunity to determine if the private detective or firm specialises in any specific areas of law.  You have the right to ask if they or anyone employed by them has ever been arrested for a crime.   One thing that can separate investigators from one another is practical experience and the ability to quickly and efficiently acquire information through the use of informants and other means.  Private detectives are extremely adept at the artful task of gathering information that is either unknown or unavailable.  Make sure that your questions are answered to your complete satisfaction.


The next step is to check their credentials such as work experience, educational background, or additional training received.
