What Our Clients Say About Us

“After 10 years of marriage I learned that my husband was having an affair with another woman. But the information didn’t just fall out of the sky into my lap. It was a slow and painful process of dealing with suspicions and doubts for almost a year before I was certain that he was seeing the other woman. There were many little “clues” along the way, and I was never able to get enough information to prove my case. So I just kept quiet and never confronted him with my suspicions. I lived in a near constant state of depression and began to think that it was all just my imagination.

“My best friend talked me into hiring a private investigator in order to either prove or disprove my suspicions so I could put it to rest and get on with my life. I met with an investigator from Stillinger Investigations and told him everything I knew or suspected. I was treated with the utmost respect and professionalism and hired them on the spot. My husband was going out of town on business that weekend. As it turned out, he never left town at all. The investigators videotaped him meeting the other woman at a local shopping center where she got in the car with him. From there they went to a local motel where they stayed the night.

“Stillinger Investigations documented every move and was able to gather all the information I needed to prove my case. I have been divorced almost a year now, and I have my life back. After being confronted with the evidence, my husband didn’t bother to contest the divorce. I hate that my marriage failed. But I hate even more that I lived in misery so long before hiring a professional. I strongly encourage anyone who feels betrayed by their spouse to talk to Stillinger Investigations. They were there for me and gave me my life back. While the evidence they provided me certainly wasn’t pretty, it was the truth. And the truth was far better than living with all the lies.”

Our firm retained Brian Stillinger/Stillinger Investigations in one of our more important litigation cases. The case required a good bit of investigation and research on the respective parties and witnesses. Brian and his partners’ work was outstanding. They have resources available that are unusual in a mid-market city such as Columbia. I made the remark to him, and I meant it, that his kind of work and professionalism would be on the cutting edge in L.A. or New York, and we are fortunate to have him in our city. He responds quickly, is almost always available, and always accomplishes what he says he’s going to do. On top of that, his fees are reasonable. I could not offer a higher recommendation.

As a local Columbia, SC attorney, I have used the services of Stillinger Investigations many times. Their investigative skills have proven invaluable in getting the evidence I need to assist my clients. They are professionals in every respect and have always performed as expected. I have used them in both civil and criminal cases, and I know that I can always count on them for the really tough investigations. They have an impressive array of investigative tools at their disposal such as covert cameras, surveillance vehicles, Tech, and bug detection equipment. I would strongly recommend Stillinger Investigations to anyone who needs the services of a private investigator. I’ve tried other agencies, and I do know the difference.

Stillinger Investigations assisted me in a very important case. The investigator, a licensed attorney, was professional, reliable, and ethical. I felt that she was interested in the case and could also look at things from a lawyer’s perspective as well as an investigator’s.
