Below is an example of private investigator Brian Bates' investigative work, as featured on CRTV's Michelle Malkin Investigates.


Brian’s efforts made all the difference when I faced criminal charges. My defense attorney suggested I hire Brian to assist in my case. Brian was able to locate evidence and secure statements that allowed me to put this behind me and to get on with my life. I can’t thank him enough!

I didn’t want to believe my husband was cheating on me but I needed proof either way. After consulting with Brian he was able to maximize my limited budget and got me the video evidence I needed emotionally to make big changes in mine and my kid’s lives.
