Private investigator’s are often portrayed in the media as seedy individuals who hide in parked cars and take pictures of unsuspecting people for money. However, a private investigator is actually a well-trained professional, versed in investigative techniques to help people in need. They serve a wide variety of purposes and can help a large audience of people.
If you are considering hiring a private investigator, chances are there is something in your life that you are worried or unsure about, whether that be a suspicion that your partner is being unfaithful, a mistrust in your employees, a fear about a missing friend or anxiety over a data hacking incident at work. Whatever your reasoning, you are looking for help. Help from someone who is trained and specialized in skills that you didn’t even know you needed. So if you are ready to take the next step and speak to someone who can help, you might be asking yourself, “how do I select the right private investigator for me?”
As with any kind of service, there are a myriad of options to choose from. When considering which private investigator is right for you, you should always do your research. Look into what kind of cases they specialize in. For example, some PIs are more versed in infidelity cases and some specialize in social media. This information can typically be found on their website, however, many services also offer consultations in which you can discuss your case and ask all of your important questions. You can think of this consultation as an investigative or informational interview. But be prepared to answer questions of theirs as well.
In your research, you should look at the detective agencies’ online reviews and substantiate that they are legitimate and not false fraudulent reviews created by the owner to dupe the public. Additionally, confirm that they are licensed in investigative practices to ensure that they operate legally under the law. When discussing a partnership with a potential PI, it is also important to ask questions about how they operate, what techniques they utilize and how they will deliver their final report to you. It is particularly important to discuss timing expectations and how that will affect the cost of the project. Ensure that there will be no hidden or unexpected fees. In essence, it is important to ask all of your questions up front to ensure there are no surprises with their services along the way.
