About SF Bay Area Investigators – Filley and Associates

Professional SF 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 SF Bay Area 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.

Private Investigator Tools and Methods

Filley & Associates operatives use the right tools for the right situation. From state of the art covert, low light and distance camera kits to the most complete and accurate databases available, we make sure our operatives are well armed to achieve case goals. As always, we promise value and confidentiality.
