With close to 8,000 private investigators licensed in the State of Florida, how do you know which private investigator is right for you?
The first thing you should check is to verify the person you are hiring is an actual licensed private investigator. Florida, like many other states, has a set of laws that govern private investigators. In Florida, private investigators are governed and regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. You can always visit their website to verify if a private investigator is licensed. Most websites will include the company license information at the bottom of the page. Our license, for example, is A 1400031 and can be verified by visiting this link click here.
If you believe that a person is not a licensed private investigator but claims to be one, you can call the FDACS and file a complaint. Or visit this link for more: Complaint Form
A private investigator’s goal is to help you find answers, and this is only doable if you and your private investigator are a good fit. To be truly effective, your private investigator may need to know confidential information about your specific situation, be prepared to share this information with them. Your private conversation will remain confidential. We never share this information with third parties without your direct instruction or consent.
During your research, you’ll find private investigators that specialize and focus on different matters or types of investigations. No two cases are alike. Make sure that your private investigator is qualified to handle your case. This can be done by reading testimonials, online reviews on Google, or (rarely available due to the confidentiality of our cases) requesting references from prior clients. Look for people who were in similar situations as you, and who left positive reviews. You can visit our Google business page to see what we’ve done for our clients in the past. – Closure Investigative Agency.
You want to be sure your private investigator has a positive reputation. Do your research. Do they have any negative complaints? Are there any lawsuits against the private investigator? Can you find any complaints with the FDACS? Are people complaining on social media or sites like Google or Yelp?
As you continue to research your private investigator, consider calling their office and request to have a free consultation. Most private investigators offer 30-minute over the phone consultations to determine if your case can be handled by their office. When you’re ready, you can request to meet your private investigator at a local café, or public setting.
If you decide to schedule an in-person consultation, use this time to make the final determination on whether you and your private investigator are going to be a good fit. We encourage you to research our company and learn more about our services.
