Who We Are 2017-12-21T16:44:35+00:00



The original company was founded in 1977 by a former law enforcement agent in both state and federal service. We have built our success upon the philosophy that customer service and professionalism is paramount to succeeding in a case. With services ranging from criminal defense (STATE & FEDERAL) to forensic investigations to process of service, we have grown from being just another investigations agency to be one of the most in demand for criminal defense agencies in South Texas.

Our client base is mostly defense attorneys, however we also work for private citizens and government entities. It is our mission to provide the best possible service in a timely manner and at a reasonable rate. We believe the best way to achieve this goal is to have an open line of communication with our client and a closed mouth with everyone else.

Your satisfaction is of paramount importance to us!
