Testimonials

“We are so happy we used Joe and his team for our personnel investigation.  He promptly and discreetly collected all of the necessary media evidence from our staff PCs and systems and his communication and technology skills were extremely professional.  When I read his final investigative report, I got goose bumps.  He helped us overcome a very challenging time for our organization.”

Paul

Law Firm Client

“Joe and his partner were able to “crack the code” on a number of very complex databases (one table had 400 million rows of data). His work included rapidly understanding a very complex industry (electric power and natural gas trading) and then providing lawyers, economists and accountants with information they could use in their investigations of market manipulation.”
