..."You always treated us as if we were your number one client...Because of your excellent surveillance work over the years, we have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. I have recommended your company to many friends and business associates and will continue to do so."

John A. Testa, Safety Director/Risk Manager, Pulice Construction, Inc.

"Patients who are into malingering and pathological exaggeration of symptomatology are usually very talented and very good, and quite capable of fooling highly competent physicians, even those who are expert in disability evaluations. You provide a service that is most helpful in differentiating and helping us separate those patients who are truly ill from those who are expert in fabricating emotional, physical, and pain symptomatology."

Eugene R. Almer, M.D, Scottsdale Psychiatric Services


..."the quality of the videotape was excellent and the judge took particular interest in viewing same. Despite claimant’s efforts to explain away her activities as visualized on the tape, the judge was simply not buying the claimant’s explanations...Subsequent to viewing the videotape at the hearing,...the judge entered an interim Order...rescinding claimant’s compensation benefits. The judge indicated to me that the videotape had obliterated any small amount of credibility that the claimant had and the judge felt compelled to cut off claimant’s benefits. Further, subsequent to the hearing, we forwarded the videotape to one of claimant’s prior treating physicians... We have now received an opinion from (him), based upon the videotape, that the claimant has fully recovered from her work injury. I can state without reservation that the investigative work performed by Kolb, Stewart & Associates, Inc. was critical in persuading the judge of the claimant’s lack of disability."

Gail L. O’Neal, Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin

..."If you have anybody who wonders how an investigation report in a compensation claim should look, have them review Larry Osborn’s reporting. His questions, the format of his report, and summaries are excellent."...

J. Victor Stoffa, Law Offices of O’Connor, Cavanagh

..."We discovered that dealing with a firm your size allowed us to engage the right person for the job without losing control of our case by having to deal with a large bureaucratic investigation agency. Your investigator’s thorough and concise daily reports, and your own personal involvement and accessibility to us throughout each case, served to constantly assure us that we were in control of the investigation. You were able to establish iron-clad ‘covers for your operative within the hours after we authorized you to proceed...and you produced the desired results within days after becoming involved...The Phoenix Police Department detectives assigned to this matter asked us to convey to you their appreciation for the highly professional manner in which your firm conducted this most recent investigation."...

Kenneth N. Bender, Senior Counsel, Honeywell

..."We have collaborated on two video tapes using clips from or cases and these continue to impress our prospects. Each tape represented four or five cases with savings of nearly $500,000 for each group. We have found for each dollar we invest with your firm we save our customers $10.00. A good return on the investment."...

Charles Holland Jr., Division Claim Manager, Argonaut Insurance Company


..."the plaintiff in this personal injury suit had made a demand of $2.5 million dollars and claimed to be suffering from permanent and progressive bilateral wrist injuries. As a result of the efforts of your investigator, Mr. Ron Jones, we were able to secure a surveillance videotape demonstrating the plaintiff loading and unloading her car without apparent physical restrictions. As a result of the videotape, we were able to settle this law suit for a fraction of the original asking price."...

..."the evidence you collected enabled the Glendale Police Department to arrest and convict our driver for stealing from us."...

Craig Steele, Vice President & General Manager,
Schuck and Sons Construction Company, Inc.

..."Mr. Jones did a superior job of advising me and helping me to understand the most beneficial way of using the surveillance. Mr. Jones really impressed me when it came time to show the video tape to the IME physician. His rapport with the physician certainly made the viewing process relaxed, yet direct and objective. I really believe this played a major part in influencing the physician. The results of the surveillance have already paid off with our employee’s recent light work restrictions."...

Gary Cluck, Safety and Training Manager, Ralston Purina Company

Victor S. DiGiovine, NW SIU Team Leader, Fireman’s Fund

..."The claimant's attorney became very reasonable after watching the video of the claimant walking, kneeling and squatting - all this with a bum knee! Had we not had this tape, I think we would have gone to trial and run the risk of an extremely high award. The estimated savings, had we lost at trial was in the range of $70,000 to $90,000. My thanks for a job well done"...

Claims Adjuster, Keenan & Associates, Inc.

..."Our adjusters are pleased with the surveillance results... We will be opening fraud cases on two of those cases, due to the video showing work beyond restrictions while receiving disability benefits they’re not entitled to...It’s been great working with your investigators in Denver...Both are very professional, competent investigators who understand worker’s compensation issues and time restraints the adjusters are faced with."...

Ernest J. Hoadley, Lead Investigator/Supervisor, AIG Claim Services


..."The judge ruled that the claimant did not sustain any permanent disability. I feel that the surveillance of the claimant played a significant part in his decision"...

Merton E. Marks, Lewis and Roca, LLP


..."The investigators were able to get video of the claimant that was stable and clear. The video was so impressive the treating physician commented to me on how good it was. I wanted to let you know that because of the surveillance video provided to us by your investigators we were able to get a discharge with zero impairment and are now preparing the file for possible prosecution of a fraud"...

Ken Davis, senior Claims Administrator, Pinnacle Risk Management Services


..."Before Mr. Jones’ investigation began, (the claimant) had already been awarded total disability social security benefits, and he had made a $300,000 settlement demand in our case. Mr. Jones videotaped the plaintiff over a period of several days and thoroughly investigated the level of his physical activities and income, which were quite different than the plaintiff had testified to under oath...As you know, the settlement demand immediately dropped to $60,000 and the case settled two days later for $30,000. The fine result in this case was directly attributable to the top-rate work performed your firm"...

..."Good News! We were able to get a discharge on the claimant...He was released to return to work and discharged with a 5% permanent impairment to the right leg. This was accomplished by ... our investigator’s diligence to obtain surveillance film that showed the claimant participating in many activities he stated he was unable to do.... This file has also been referred over to the Arizona Fraud Bureau for their review and handling"...

Carrie Lashbrook, Account Specialist, Argonaut Insurance Company


..."Your investigator did a tremendous job obtaining surveillance videotape, which became the centerpiece of the evidence I submitted to the judge. In addition, your investigator made an excellent witness at the hearing. . .This workers' compensation claim, litigated in Georgia, literally spanned the nation. Your services were invaluable, and I have no doubt that without your services and the evidence you obtained, the judge could easily have ruled in the claimant's favor. Again, thank you for a job well done."
