March 14th 2024 by Detective Robinson, Licensed Private Detective

The role of a private investigator is not limited to the function of “criminal defense” as is commonly portrayed and communicated by broadcast and Internet media. While criminal defense investigations constitute the primary permissible case work for licensed private detectives, there are a few exceptions below providing law enforcement HAS NOT opened a formal investigation into a potential criminal matter.

We specialize in working with those representing themselves legally also known as “pro se.“ This means the accused has opted to not use a public defender or unable to afford a private attorney’s starting retainer typically between $10,000 to $20,000. Public Defender services are available for criminal court, contempt court, and juvenile courts and we have had offers for an opportunity to work with county offices which typically sub out the work to lesser qualified private detectives willing to work for $65 or less an hour which is nearly half of the average paid to an experienced private detective.
