We are just as eager as you in getting the peace of mind you so desire...

Our licensed private investigators have a wide variety of skills and diverse backgrounds. With 30+ years of experience, we have an excellent track record of providing high quality investigation services. From start to finish, our knowledgeable, discreet, and detail oriented staff goes above and beyond to manage your expectations, remain 100% confidential and update you daily as events unfold on your case. 

We rely on the best investigative technology and techniques, and comply with the industry’s leading standards for surveillance, locating, record search, and process services. 

A background check is an inquiry into a person’s (or a business’) past. It can be a smart and cost-effective way to learn more about an individual or a company you are considering granting access to your professional or personal life. If someone’s past is going to become part of your future, you owe it to yourself to learn as much as you can about them. While a person’s past doesn’t necessarily predict how they will act in the future, and most people don’t have skeletons buried in their closets, the wise course of action is to do what you can to avoid unpleasant surprises and to keep yourself, your family and your associates safe from the unscrupulous – and worse.

As licensed private investigators, we at Nationwide Legal Investigations employ state-of-the-art techniques and resources to perform thorough and discreet background checks

Our team of investigators and operatives has, collectively 84 years of experience in this aspect of our work. As professionals, we are able to obtain information well beyond the amateur’s reach. Our clients receive a thorough and complete report on a subject’s background.

While some background checks are routine matters – for an employer to run a check on a prospective employee is a matter of course – some clients are reticent at first when it comes to requesting this type of service. Running a background check may strike them as being indiscreet, looking into things that are not their business…or just plain snooping and spying. This really isn’t the case: people seeking access to any part of your life by definition open themselves to honest scrutiny – and a background check is nothing more than honest scrutiny. Any check we run at Nationwide Legal Investigations is conducted entirely according to established legal and ethical principles.

A background check can be of benefit to the client in many ways. Some of the most frequently requested investigations we perform are:

  • Business Background Checks
