On the Job: Private Investigator

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.
