My wife and I hired James Joyce Investigations as we were left 30k from my grandmother in her will and my father's sister, who had power of attorney and denied us the money as she claimed she had no money left. Considering she had well known savings and a pension, we immediately knew that she was trying to steal our monies and go against her Last Will and Testament. These private eyes found out she shifted the money to another bank account shortly before her death. We supplied them all the documentation we had and they took care of the rest. Thanks a ton guys!! Could not have done it without you!!
I was full of grief because my 20 y/o daughter was missing for weeks. I had to search for her alone and the police did nothing. I called James Joyce Investigations and after speaking with them once I felt some relief. The Detective was soo helpful.. He listened....He offered useful advice, and I can tell he actually cared. Thank you so so much for being there!!!
I used this detective company to find a friend who went MIA for several years. I didn't have much information to give them, but miraculously they were able to work with minimal information and I received her contact details after just 2 days. I thought it was going to cost a lot more but this was a very reasonable fee and I couldn't be happier. Very effective PI. Thank you and I will use their services if I need to again.
Service Accomplished Before 24 HoursI needed service in a short timeline due to a statutory deadline and was wholly impressed with the promptness and approach James and his team handled the engagement. They delivered the results I needed, communicated perfectly and made the process easy. I find this type of response rare in business as this was a personal matter. Quick to the point and effective.
I live at one of the properties that Centurion Security provide services for. I would give this service an F. I'm not surprised that Centurion would place inexperienced young people in this location instead of seasoned professionals (I say that loosely). My reason is the rude unprofessional services they provide here. The security guards are constantly on their cell phones playing games while the residents are waiting to be buzz in. They are not friendly,helpful or courteous. In the past I worked in the security field and I'll tell you these employees would be either been written up or fired. It amazes me these guards are licensed carry guns!
We use James Joyce Investigations for all of our insurance validation, counter fraud solutions and surveillance. They always deliver surveillance teams at short notice nationwide who continually provide quality product which is presented in a professional report which makes life so easy for our administrators.
I am very pleased with the quality of the work carried out by you all. Information that I thought would not come out came out with this investigation. The cost was reasonable for the work undertaken. I am happy to recommend this company.
Based on my experience with James Joyce Investigations over the last few years, I can attest to their high degree of integrity, intelligence, hard work and confidentiality. In addition, the owners have always shown great understanding and kindness while solving problems. Highly recommended.
Ive been employed with them since 2010 its now 2016 and im still at 10.00/hour. Ive put in request after request only to be denied multiple times. I am a great employee & this i know. i dont call off im never late and ive worked in dispatch for 3 years with them. ( which is a whole headache itself) as well as a security officer. Its absolutely no room for advancement,they dont care about how your getting treated by the clients they contract with, whatever the client say you did it goes, management dont care about they employees which is crazy because they are the ones in the field making kates money for instance the contract can pay 15/hour a guard but kates is only gonna pay you 10 maybe 11 out of that. Go on facebook you'll see them posting pics of them buying rolls royces, attending prestigious events with their fur coats & ballroom dresses all while the employees are starving trying to figure out how the lights are gonna get paid. its sickening & lets not talk about how the checks bounce,how certain currency exchanges will not cash their checks. its no direct deposit, when you go up there to get your check its so unorganized,its like the aid office line. long & frustrating. Dont ask why ive been with them this long, ive been looking very hard to get away. lord knows i have. The owner Mr.Kates is such a sweet guy its really the family he got working in his office. Kates will be good as a part time job but dont make a mistake trying to make it
I'm a journalist and I went to six cities to cover a story on the Elephant In The Room documentary. However, I went to the 67th block of EAST END where Kates Detective Agency works. I had a friend who lives in the area, and I said to her I would like to interview some of the people in the area. Kate detective officer said I couldn't film there on East End! The Kates officer who was driving vehicle #2 on Weds 9-3-14 on East End was very coerce, rude, and aggressive with his action and behavior, he threaten to arrest me, and told me I couldn't have the camera on the property, and I would have to get it cleared through management! So I put the camera back into my vehicle, then I re-approach the guys I was about to interview to see if I could find out if they would be interested in a new location that didn't have the constraints as this area did. I told the guys I was interviewing I didn't have a camera now we can talk, they where happy! But then the Kates Detective officer re-approach me saying I didn't have to say that and he again engage me with talking about arresting me and that I couldn't be there talking to them! The Kates Detective went on talking about how tired he was and that he had no sleep and he went further into the abyss of empty words coming off sounding like a complete thug with no legal grounds what so ever! I knew then that he had cross the line! I didn't engage Kates detective because it was clear he didn't know the law! Kates Detective violated my first Amendment rights, freedom of speech, right to assemble, and the right to the free press! I put the camera away although I was standing in the city street that runs down 67 block of East End in Chicago Il. The problem is that these untrained so-called detectives have no knowledge of the law, and is a $50,000,000 lawsuit waiting to happen!
