I'm ready to hire Bear Witness.

The process is simple & straightforward.

1.  Contact us.
Give us a call.  We will listen to understand your situation and your needs, privately discuss your options, and help you with a strategic plan, if needed. Initial phone consultations are always free of charge, and always confidential. 

2.  Fill in the blanks.
Provide us with some information necessary to do our job.  For surveillance assignments, we will need the basics like name, description or photo, address, vehicle description, time and place to start, and other relevant details and information.  We can obtain the information from you by phone, text, email, fax or by a brief in-person meeting, if local.

3.  Make your payment.
To retain our services, payment is required in advance.  The payment amount is typically based on the investigation hours or time that you are requesting, or the particular service that you need.  For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment to include cash, checks, debit cards, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.  If you need a confidential payment method, inquire within.

4.  We work on your case.
Once your case information and payment is received, we proceed to work on your assignment.  During your case, we keep you informed as to the progress of your assignment, provide recommendations, and help guide you towards your desired goal. 

It's often possible to start working on your case right away.  However, the more notice you give us, the better.  Planning ahead allows us the time to properly prepare, assign appropriate investigators, and schedule your private investigation needs accordingly.  We encourage clients to try and make their reservations at least a few days in advance.

We look forward to working with you and placing the power of information in your hands.  For personal attention and expert service, contact our office right now.
