Why I should I hire a private investigator instead of going to the police?
The police are law enforcement. Period. Unless an actual crime has been committed or "probable cause" exists that a crime has been committed, the police generally are unable or unwilling to help. For example, if you are business owner and customers aren't paying their bills and then disappear on you, the police aren't going to help you find them. If you are an attorney and need to have someone served for a civil proceeding, do you want to spend a great deal of resources in trying to find them? When you need people located who haven't committed an actual crime, it can cost you plenty, both in terms of time and money, because the police pursue criminals, not witnesses for civil hearings or deadbeats who skip out on their legitimate debts. We have the tools and the skills to help you locate people for service of process or submission of invoices that won't wipe out your budget or cost your clients or customers a fortune.
Are your clients private citizens or businesses?
We cater to both. Stringfellows Investigations is the choice to those who need quality investigative services at an affordable cost. An individual’s needs will naturally differ from that of a business. But anyone may suddenly need information that is hard to find and make no mistake, contrary to what you might think from the popular media, the Internet is not your own personal investigator that you can access from the comfort of home or office. There are many things that you just won't find by surfing the web. The average person might need help varying from location services, security audits for the home, infidelity investigations and premarital screening. A business may need services ranging from skiptracing parties who owe debts or have broken contracts to background and criminal checks for prospective employees.
How much does it cost to hire a private investigator?
As it is with any with any kind of professional service, costs will vary depending on the client’s needs and resources and how in-depth an investigation is liable to go. As an example, a brief search for someone looking for classmates for a high school or college reunion or those wanting to locate old friends from your days in the military will cost a lot less than a large law firm needing services for a long period of time to send out regular services of process or gather information for clients. All fees are negotiable and discussed with our prospective clients after the initial consultation, which is always free. We invite any potential client to shop around at other agencies and find out what they charge for their services. One agency in Denver will charge up to $35,000 to investigate a Facebook harrasment case. Let Stringfellows Investigations help you without excessive costs!
