Trash and Private Investigations

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. As long as the trash is on a public curb, it’s fair play to collect it. I’ve used this technique to gather evidence in numerous cases. From mail and phone bills to liquor and pill bottles, you can find all sorts of evidence of lifestyle in someone’s trash. […]

Who Is Panoramic Investigations?

No, we are not the mythical PI’s fostered in stories, books, movies and television. We do not drink in excess (a DUI will end your career), work out of dingy offices, kick down doors or shoot people. We dress appropriately and professionally and drive unremarkable vehicles rather than red Ferraris.

We are professionally licensed and regulated by the same governing entity that regulates State Troopers. We belong to trade associations, take continuing education, develop relationships with other PI’s and pay taxes and insurance. We properly record the interactions we have with our clients and witnesses. We do our best to do our work ethically and act within the boundaries of the law.

We are an integral component of the United States legal system. Without us, fraud, criminal and other civil cases would not be investigated, or properly documented.
