Hear what some of my clients and colleagues have to say about me after working together on various projects throughout my career.

Dean Beers

Certified Legal Investigator / Expert Consultant - Personal Injury, Negligence & Death for Civil, Criminal & Probate

This is not a biased recommendation. It is my pleasure to introduce my wife - my partner in life and business. We share a passion for people. We work every case that comes through our agency independently by review and together through the consultation. The value and insight she provides to each case - from experience to intuition - is exceptional.


Get in touch with me if you would like to do business together, share an idea or just say hello.
