Robert Cirtin Investigations is a general practice firm of private investigators that is well-equipped to provide any type of investigation you require. Since 1991, we have provided private, confidential investigations for organizations and individuals.

If you need a private, confidential investigation to resolve personal or business issues, our broad knowledge and expertise will serve you well.

Our many repeat clients are indicative of our success. This assures you that we have the experience and competence to assist you in a confidential and timely manner.

To pursue the truth! Something strange or unexplainable may have occurred in your business. You may be suspicious of a relationship. Or someone may be violating the trust placed in him or her.

You must know the absolute, unvarnished truth about what occurred in order to take action to resolve it. Many businesses hire us because they understand the benefits of unquestioned veracity by having an objective third party look into the matter in question.

Private individuals hire us to sort out situations such as relationship infidelity, child custody issues, spouse and child abuse cases, family or parent-child relationships. In most cases, these situations will be well-documented and verified by our impeccable surveillance and immediate reporting abilities.

Attorneys hire us to investigate a variety of matters. These include many of the reasons we conduct investigations for individuals, but in which the cases have a critical legal component. Whatever your concern, we discover the facts and reveal the truth about any matter.

While there are good investigation companies, few are matched by Robert Cirtin Investigations to provide you with the most thorough and comprehensive investigations possible. We commit to the highest degree of integrity and assure that your information will be treated with the utmost discretion and confidentiality.

Our Firm’s success has been built on the satisfaction of our clients. We are pleased to note that our new clients primarily come to us by way of referrals through our existing satisfied clients. We are proud of our reputation and hold an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau while meeting all accreditation standards.

The cornerstone of our business is confidentiality and integrity.

Strict confidentiality will be maintained at all times. We will never divulge any information from our investigation, including your name or any indentifying references, to anyone for any reason without your specific consent.

Immediacy is of the essence in most investigative efforts. Our reputation for efficiently and accurately meeting our clients’ needs is a valued asset to Robert Cirtin Investigations.

Each case is different, so no two investigations are exactly alike. Therefore, it is difficult to offer an approximate timeline and projected completion date here.

Two investigations may be similar in terms of subject matter, but still differ in terms of what is required to obtain the desired information.

Once we understand the parameters of your situation, usually at our first consultation, we are quite willing to offer you an estimated time requirement.

You will receive a thorough and professionally written report that can be used for your personal purposes or in a court of law. If the investigation included surveillance, you will recieve a copy of the video on DVD along with the written report. No one will receive a copy of the report except you, and/or those you explicitly authorize to receive it, such as your attorney.

We charge an hourly fee for the time we spend on your investigation and for the mileage driven. An investigation requiring overnight travel, entailing expenses such as hotel and food will be billed to the client at the actual cost. Please know that we make every attempt to ensure these expenses are kept to a minimum.

Just like law firms and investigation companies, we receive an appropriate retainer prior to beginning your investigation. Unlike other investigation companies, we return any portion of the retainer that was not needed for the investigation.
