Private Investigators work in a similar manner to lawyers in that we bill by time, not result, since it is impossible (however much we may want to!) to guarantee that the client will get a favorable outcome.
We believe in complete transparency when it comes to billing. When a client comes in or calls for a consult, all fees and expectations are discussed ahead of time and clearly spelled out in our contract.
We know that clients are concerned about cost, but believe that with investigations – as with so many things in life – you get what you pay for, and in our experience clients report that making the choice to hire a licensed professional BEFORE committing to an expensive business merger or personal relationship has saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees down the line.
Due to the complexity of our investigations, we generally work on a retainer basis – though certain types of background checks are available for a flat fee. For a complete explanation, call or email us today!
