Our experienced team of investigators serves our clients by applying their varied expertise to your investigative needs. Founder, W.T. “Bill” Butcher, a former FBI agent and longtime private investigator, established the business in 1982. Since his passing in 2019, long time investigator and son-in-law, Shadd Piehl, has led the organization. Shadd, as well as our other associates, Mark Kamphuis, and David Bourgeois, were hired and trained by Bill. Read their bios here.

That doesn’t count the thousands of process services, pre-employment background checks and property searches we've handled through the years. We look forward to providing continued quality service to our clients in the years to come.
