Why should I hire a private investigator?

Simply put: to find answers. We are trained specialists, capable of acquiring insights about the identity, habits, conduct, activities, location, affiliations, associations, transactions, or character of an individual, group, or company. In legal, private, and corporate situations, Venator can conduct investigations in order to ascertain the credibility of a witness or suspect; conduct background checks on a potential employee or tenant, locate the whereabouts of missing persons; identify the location or recovery of lost or stolen property; prove adultery or infidelity, or pinpoint the causes/origin of libels and/or losses.


A person will sometimes choose an investigator over police in order to keep the information gathered private and away from the public realm. In situations where the police may not be provided with enough evidence to act on a complaint, a private investigator can be used to gather the necessary intelligence. Finally, a lawyer may hire a private investigator to find information that normally would not be of interest to other agencies. For example, if you disagree with the outcome of an investigation that affects you civilly or criminally, a private investigator may be hired to gather evidence to help support your case in court.
