Most Professional. Our Industry could use more like this Agency! BI went out of their way to provide a service to us that they were not obligated to do. Saved my business $$. Would recommend to anyone.

I am an attorney from Nashville and I hired Buck and his team to track down some people that absolutely did not want to be found. BI Group did great work for us by generating solid leads, talking to people, and even good old fashioned stake-outs that ultimately got the job done. Very nice people that were patient with us and worked well with us throughout the whole thing. Worth every penny.

We are ready to begin your investigation assignment. There are several ways to get the ball rolling, including calling or emailing us for a free consultation and price quote. Most people considering hiring a private investigator (PI) have never done so. Prior to contacting a PI, you should specifically identify what it is that you want to know what your expectations are and how much you can afford to spend. Once a PI is selected, talk to the investigator and discuss the case with them. The PI should readily provide options and inform you if your goals and finances are realistic for the case.
