Finding the right private investigator can be a challenge. We’d like to tell you what we bring to the table, and what you should expect from the private investigator you hire. The following points address a few of the questions many people have about hiring a private investigator:
What are the PI’s professional credentials?
If your state requires PIs be licensed, then the PI you are considering should be licensed. Every private investigator at RMRI, LLC is licensed. A PI who is not licensed cannot legally conduct many aspects of an investigation. This especially matters when you foresee using the evidence acquired during their investigation in a court case.
What happens if the unexpected occurs?
Make sure your private investigator is insured. Insurance gives the consumer a level of protection. RMRI, LLC carries $1 Million in General Liability Insurance.
Does a PI use a contract?
A contract is just as protective to the consumer as it is to the private investigator. It shows that the PI is committed to your case, and it clarifies the agreement you have with their company. Every case that exceeds $1,000.00 in fees to RMRI, LLC starts with a contract. We care about our clients!
How will I know what’s going on with my case?
It’s important your PI has a way to reliably update you on your case. You deserve timely updates when you entrust a private investigator with your money. RMRI, LLC has an on-line collaboration site that is fully accessible to the client.
Where is the PI’s base of operations?
RMRI, LLC operates out of a commercial office in the heart of downtown Columbia, Missouri. In Missouri, a licensed PI does not have to operate out of a commercial office. However, we feel it’s important to have a professional place of business to base our work, collaborate with staff, meet clients, and present a respectable image. Furthermore, our location is near Boone County Court House and many other government buildings. Our downtown location also enables us to easily collaborate with court staff, attorneys, and other professionals located in the central Columbia business district. Our office is also secured, with three locked doors to get to records, video recording, and a locked fire-proof safe for highly sensitive materials and information.
Can one PI conduct a case?
In many cases, the answer is “no”. A complex case often requires “all hands on deck” to get the job done. At RMRI, LLC we have the personnel to tackle complicated cases. When an issue is outside of our ability or knowledge, we have a large network of people we regularly collaborate with to provide you with the best possible service. We personally know the people in our network that we will refer you to, these are trusted contacts that we have personally worked with.
Is there a formula for different kinds of cases?
Yes and no. It’s true that skill and knowledge partly come from learning patterns and applying tried-and-true methods to cases. However, every case is unique even if it’s a “standard” one, and some cases are so far out of left field that they defy any “standard” type investigation casework. We love a challenge. Whether you have a situation that a PI encounters on a regular basis, or a situation that has likely never been seen before — we thrive on thinking outside the box. A big part of our success comes from collaboration and simply locking up the office and sitting around a table throwing out ideas. No matter what your case entails, we will face it with creativity and enthusiasm.
These simple expectations can save you a lot of heartache, and hopefully, if you need to hire a private investigator they WILL save you a lot of heartache!
