Professional San Francisco Bay Area Investigators
Filley & Associates was founded by Scott E. Filley, CPI (Certified Professional Investigator), an experienced investigator and former Federal agent with 25 years of experience. We have assembled a highly qualified team of investigators. Our field and staff investigators are chosen for their investigative and people skills and are experienced at gathering evidence and reporting it clearly – in a way that is most useful to the client.
Because of the work we do and for obvious reasons, we do not list names or photographs of our investigators here. But our clients find our investigators to be reachable and responsive, as detailed on our testimonials page, by some of our long term clients.
Unlike many investigation companies, we do not hire novice investigators or interns. Our staff is talented and experienced investigators, armed with the best investigative tools. Our company engenders an energetic, creative, pro-active company culture. This has worked well for us and for our clients over the years.
We are licensed and fully insured in excess of state requirements.
Investigation Tools and Methods
Filley & Associates operatives use the right tools for the right situation.

As always, we promise value and confidentiality.
