Private investigator Melinda Kidder, owner of Columbia Investigations, uses her natural inquisitiveness and discipline developed through martial arts to solve cases.
I got an email this week from Melinda Kidder, a private detective with a heart for children’s issues.
Between hanging with her little girl and practicing martial arts, Melinda Kidder scopes out scenes to get the dirt on unanswered questions and finds out some unwanted information, too.
Investigators with Integrity
Our team of detectives and support staff are committed to providing the highest quality investigative services.
I would like to offer my recommendation for Melinda and Columbia Investigations. Melinda’s assistance with my difficult and protracted situation was undertaken with the utmost professionalism and consideration. In one instance Melinda’s dogged persistence resulted in her serving a subpoena to an individual who was resolute in his efforts to not be located. Without any reservations I highly recommend Melinda and Columbia Investigations.
We have worked with Columbia Investigations on several cases and I can highly recommend them.
