“Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” – John Adams

“In my 35 years of law enforcement experience, I learned the value of having competent detectives assigned to a case. When a crime is committed, the citizens at large have a need to know the facts of a case to ensure that justice is done. But private citizens often find themselves in situations where they need their own personal advocate for the truth. This is the role of a private investigator.

“Traditionally, we use the abbreviation PI to refer to private investigators. But at Focal Point Investigations, we like to think of it as standing for “Personal Investigator” because that is more descriptive of the services we provide. The government has its investigators paid for by tax dollars. But sometimes you may find that you need a personal investigator to look out for your best interests. Let our dynamic team of seasoned professionals help you bring the truth into focus…”
