A CD might only take a few minutes, while large hard drives can take several hours.

During this time, we’ll discuss the scope and key facts of the investigation, which will help determine the next steps.

Sometimes the best way to get to the truth is through old-school physical surveillance, and Spindletop Investigations has a track record of success and delivering results when on the trail.

We do our homework and use the best tools to put ourselves in position to get the information we need.

Physical surveillance of employees and spouses can assist investigations into infidelity, worker’s comp or FMLA fraud investigations, and parental fitness for child custody cases. 

While we pride ourselves on our high rate of success, physical surveillance is not an exact science. Unpredictable real world situations can have an effect on the successful outcome of surveillance.

Physical surveillance - $75.00/hr
Mileage - $0.50/mile
Final report and Video DVD - $100.00

Additional hotel costs for surveillance requiring more than 2 hours of travel outside Milwaukee

Because of the slow nature of the court system, a 3-hour minimum is required for court appearances.
