Although every case is different, we typically charge an hourly rate for the most common types of cases. We operate from an initial retainer or deposit and then bill against that retainer in full. We will refund any unused portion of the retainer. Some cases require an additional retainer based on the circumstances of the case. Surveillance hourly rates do not vary by Investigator; however, other types of cases do vary based on the Investigator’s years of experience.
Our most common pricing inquiry is regarding surveillance cases. Effective March 1, 2019, we bill our surveillance hourly rate at $95 per hour and require a $3,500 retainer. All charges are billed against the initial retainer. Clients are notified once the retainer is used. A case assessment is then made to determine the most appropriate course of action. Our staff will offer recommendations based on our expertise; however, the Client ultimately decides if they want to continue.
