Each case is as important as the next one, whether it is a big surveillance or just a process service; each one gets their full attention.

I have worked and hired John Harris / Shadow Investigations multiple times over my 17 years in the insurance industry.  Shadow Investigations has done a tremendous job on my cases.  One instance in particular, they helped me win a big case regarding fraud which allowed me to get a judgement against the plaintiff.  Each case is as important as the next one, whether it is a big surveillance or just a process service; each one gets their full attention.
