Q: Do private investigators have access to EXCLUSIVE databases or programs to locate subjects or conduct background investigations? 

A: The simple answer is NO. Private investigators pay broker sites for access to databases that the general public does not have access to. Legal firms can gain access to the same sites. (Disclaimer: the information contained on these sites is not verified and a thorough investigation needs to be conducted to verify this information).   

Then why would any legal firm hire a private investigator to conduct research on individuals or property? The answer is simple economics. Lawyers have a special set of skills that they spend a lifetime developing, refining, and honing to be the best in their respective area of practice. Most private investigators are no different and both receive a fee for their services. 

Attorney Hourly Rate = $100.00 to 400.00 per hour (Depending on experience and local)

Private Investigator Rate = $85.00 to $125.00 per hour (Depending on experience and local)

So why not hire office staff to conduct the research. Again this is simple economics. Similar to attorneys, private investigators continually refine their skills and expertise so they can conduct these types of investigations in a timely and proficient manner which increases their profit margin. For office staff to develop their investigative skills to a proficient level could take months or even years to achieve the proficiency level of a private investigator, just to have the employee take a higher paying job where they can use these newly developed skills to make more money.
