Private Investigation Services

Most private investigators or private detectives gain their experience solely investigating insurance matters and remain with that private investigator skill set for the entire duration of their time in the investigation industry, however, this is not the case with private investigators who work for Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group. With over thirty years’ investivation experience, Lyonswood’s private investigators all have broad-based private investigator competencies gained from both the private and public (policing/law enforcment) sectors.

Sometimes the word private detective is used instead of private investigator. Some private investigators are ex-police detectives and some private investigators within the industry call themselves private detectives. Regardless of what a private investigator or private detective calls him or herself, you need to ensure your private investigator does not only have experience in insurance matters or in the police but has experience helping people in the private sector with their unique personal and litigation needs.

Lyonswood Investigations and Forensic Group is one of the only private investigation/private investigator companies that can honestly claim broad based private investigator expertise and back it up through its numerous well-documented private investigator case histories, television appearances, T.V. documentaries, well-selected private investigation team members and website and Google Review testimonials.
