As longtime member of the California Association of Licensed Investigators, we are recognized leaders in the surveillance field. Always on the leading edge of technology, we are equipped both with state of the art equipment and seasoned knowledge and techniques, to carry out successful covert investigations.
While we do offer other ancillary services to augment our surveillance assignments, we specialize in what we are the best at.... covert surveillance.

Paramount is securing the safe welfare and emotional well-being of your children. It is crucial to document negative issues. Is the child's environment a safe and nurturing one, is the custodial parent spending allocated time with the child, who is co-habitating in the child's environment, are one of the parents engaging in argumentative or negative behavior at child visitation exchanges? All of this can be documented to ensure the court has an accurate depiction of the child's reality.
The first step is for us to work with you and come up with a plan to secure the results you need. Through our understanding of the law and technology and your understanding of the situation, we will strategize a path to success. Discreet surveillance tailored to your case requirements is vital to learning the truth about your marriage and relationships. Covert surveillance is one of the best ways to identify the facts and leave no room for doubt when investigating a case and will help you confront your suspicions by getting you the information you need.
Are they really who they say they are? It's much more prudent to find out before rather than after. In the run-up to your marriage, it is more than natural to have a few reservations about your future partner. Prenuptial services are one of the most sensitive areas of private investigations, which is why Andrew Price Investigations conducts discrete and thorough investigations in California to help you ease any worries you have about your partner before getting married.
You want your legitimately injured employees to receive all the benefits needed to ensure a quick and healthy return to work. But due diligence dictates investigation to ensure the employee is in fact injured, that the injury took place in the work environment and that the employee is not malingering, engaging in activities outside the scope of the restrictions or taking part in concurrent employment while receiving benefits.
Is the person that slipped and fell while on your property as disabled as they claim? Is the person you tapped on the rear bumper really is hurt as they allege to be? It is imperative that you determine if they are continuing to work when they claim they can't, are engaging in recreational activities in contradiction with their injury or have a history of filing personal injury claims.
Employee time theft may seem frivolous, but the cost to a business can be incredible. We can discreetly monitor and document your employees activities. If you suspect your employees are not genuine with their sick leave absences or in-the-field time, your business is wasting money. Our investigation can give you the evidence you need to make an informed decision.
The San Francisco Bay Area rental market is increasingly difficult to manage. Is your head reeling with the Costa-Hawkins law and local San Francisco 1.21 ordinance? The results of our surveillance and investigation work have been used as evidence in court to prove that a tenant has breached the terms of their agreement.
Do you rent your home on Airbnb or VRBO and getting reports of on on going party or situation? We can immediately dispatch an investigator to monitor and document any detrimental activities, damage and the persons present.
Are you about to spend a fortune on a home? Conducting a neighborhood investigation will help ensure you’re not moving in next door to a contractor who has employees coming and going at all hours, a house full of gear heads who make noise at all hours, or the proverbial party place with their in house garage band. It’s a small price to pay to ensure many years of peace and quiet.

I had hired a temporary worker for my construction crew, a neighbor of one of my employees. After returning from a holiday weekend, he reported that he had hurt his back and knee falling off a ladder the previous week and ultimately filed a Workers' Compensation claim. Hearing rumors that he was not as hurt as he claimed or possibly at all, and that he was playing soccer on weekends, I informed the insurance company. After six months of no action on the part of the insurance company, I hired Andrew to go check him out. Andrew was able to prove that he was not injured at all, had just started his own landscaping business, doing almost the same work that he was claiming he was unable to do and was in fact playing soccer on weekends. Andrew obtained a significant amount of convincing video which he submitted to the insurance company. About a week later, they denied his claim and the issue was resolved positively in my favor. I highly recommend Andrew.
Andrew really came through for me. I live in Montana and my son lives in the San Francisco Bay area. He has struggled with addiction for many years but has recently been claiming he was clean but needed money for a car as his was on his last legs. Before I gave him any more money, I wanted to try to and determine his current status, not just what he was telling me. Andrew did a couple days of surveillance and ultimately followed him to the tenderloin area of San Francisco where he was able to document him buying drugs. Not great news but now I’m able to make an informed decision going forward. I highly recommend Andrew. He wasn’t the least expensive investigator out there, but his demeanor and professionalism won me over. Some of the other investigators I spoke with had a very hard sale approach, Andrew was very personable and sensitive to the issues.
I knew something was up but I just couldn’t prove it. Despite feeling somewhat guilty about it, I hired Andrew to investigate my partner. It appears he has significant experience in doing this and has a somewhat foolproof strategy for catching these cheaters. I won’t reveal his secret, but it worked perfectly and I was able to confirm my fears and was able to move on with my life.
