A friend called me one Sunday. She asked if I could help locate a missing family member. I had no idea how to do that, and not enough time had passed to file a true "missing person" report with the police. When in doubt, hire a professional. I found Scott online and spoke with him on the family's behalf. He replaced the situation's stress with a methodical process and insight. Scott asked thoughtful discovery questions to orient his search, then got started. It took less than 10 minutes. As you can imagine, this wasn't an awesome time for that family. Scott's work...on a Sunday...delivered aid, comfort, and results. The missing family member was found in less than 90 minutes. There's an old saying that it's not enough to do your best...you have to know what to do, and then do your best. In this situation, and I'm sure others like it, Scott knew what to do. If you ever need the services of a private investigator, I highly recommend Scott and his firm. We were lucky to find them, they were excellent in every way.

I was recently involved in a scam. Scott was being super helpful and supportive. He offered professional analysis and solutions. He also gave me directions to collect evidence, guide me through the whole process. What is the most important, I can feel he is very dedicated and he really cares. Because of his help, I have so much more hope to get my loss back or bring the scammer to justice.

I contacted Mr. Filley for assistance after a recent crime and strongly recommend that others looking for a private investigator do the same. Throughout the entire process, he kept me updated regularly and remained in constant communication. The service he provided was comprehensive and went, quite honestly, beyond my initial expectations. His knowledge base and range of experience came in handy for a client new to this sort of situation, and his persistence in pursuing contacts and then following up with me was greatly appreciated. I am thankful to have had his help during a difficult time

Thanks to Scott we were able to track down our homeless son in a matter of days after our own attempts to find him had failed. Scott was honest, dedicated and persistent. He stayed within the budget we set for his services. He was able to arrange for our son to be served with legal papers once he had been located. He facilitated our contact with a local social service agency who had regular contact with our son so we should be able to find him again in the future. Can't say enough good things about Scott. We highly recommend him.

Way Lee and Eva were tremendous. I had a very unique and difficult problem in China that needed a skilled and knowledgeable person on the ground to collect reliable information and contact appropriate agencies including different police departments. I was in the US and could not help. With one trip and many follow-up phone calls, Eva kept control of the situation and guided a series of complex actions to achieve the result. A mother who was kidnapped and taken from her children in southern China was found in Inner Mongolia and reunited with her oldest daughter who had been looking for her for five years. Eva found her mother in less than three months from her first involvement.

You need to call Scott if you want an investigator who will take the time to speak with you, hear your concerns and provide you with individualized and personalized attention. After I called Scott, we had a long discussion about my case and developed a strategy on how to investigate it. Scott is friendly and skilled in his profession. I was most impressed with Scott's ability to strategize and come up with multiple different courses of action based on the information I provided him. During his investigation, Scott kept me updated and informed on everything that was happening throughout the course of the investigation and did not hesitate to reach out if he needed information from me. If you need a private investigator, I highly recommend Scott.

Hiring Scott was the best day decision I ever made. He is very understanding throughout the whole process and continually kept me well informed. He was able to come up with other ideas to carry out the investigation and he was very flexible. Really enjoyed working with him! Scott is willingly to do whatever it takes to make sure the investigation is completed with the best accuracy.

我最近被一个朋友借了很多钱,一直不还。
Scott给了我很多帮助。 他提供了专业分析和解决方案。 他还让我收集证据,指导我完成整个过程。 最重要的是,我能感觉到他非常敬业。 由于他的帮助,我有更多希望挽回损失,如果万一挽回不了,我有足够的证据让他绳之以法。
