When you think of private investigation services surveillance immediately comes to mind.

Many times crimes against animals go unpunished due to lack of resources for the cases. There’s also misunderstandings about which agency should be investigating the case, which often involves either law enforcement, or animal control. Types of animal cruelty investigations include: dog fighting, abandoning/dumping an animal, poisoning an animal, shooting an animal, maiming an animal, and torturing an animal. Sadly these crimes are often committed against other peoples pets due to disputes, revenge, and misunderstandings. In Oklahoma all of these are against the law, and in some cases are felonies.

Pro Bono Private Investigations
There are some investigations we will perform for free if it is for a good cause. Some cases we might consider are investigations involving children or human trafficking. There are other cases we might consider performing pro bono, and it all depends on the circumstances of the case. There are other cases where we might consider working on the case for a reduced fee, or a package fee. Cases like this require discussion to determine all aspects of the case, and what is involved. Private Investigators are not allowed to work on a contingency basis in Oklahoma. In other words, We can’t investigate your case for a portion of an anticipated reward or settlement that relies on the outcome of the case.
Do not expect that your typical investigation requests will be handled for free. Professional investigators are also career people with their own substantial bills to pay. Do not expect them to work for free, just like you would not offer your own services for free. Everyone needs to make a living. Be realistic when you submit a pro bono investigation request.
