RELIABLE
You can rely on me to thoroughly investigate a Public Defender or Private case, provide security services, work surveillance or even serve your legal papers on time. I am a Wisconsin State Licensed Private Detective and own my own Private Detective Agency. A contract must be agreed and signed in regards to any investigative or securty services that I provide.
I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT I DO
During my life, I have been accused of crimes by known offenders that I did not commit. I know how it feels to be falsely accused and yet just because you are charged, others think that you are guilty by association of being charged. That is why I invest all my skills, education and training to investigate a case from the start to the finish. Leaving no stone unturned. The D.A. has investigators and unlimited resources to convict you. Isn't it time to have an investigator on your side, working for you? You may be guilty, that doesn't matter to me. What matters to me and to you is that your case is fairly treated with a thorough defense investigation.

Reviews
I'm a legal assistant for a large law firm and I am always looking for good process servers that are reliable. Matt at First Priority Investigations really helped me out of a bind when I needed a process server in the La Crosse area FAST. He was responsive and communicative and got the job done the same day in a rush without a hitch. Posted by Sarah (DeWitt Law Firm)

Fast, efficient and capable. Handled my business within 24 hours. Communicated well and promptly. This is the business you want to hire for process service! Thank you Matt for listening and getting the job done quickly! Posted by Melissa Small

I contacted First Priority Investigations to inquire about personal service of legal paperwork. The owner answered my initial questions professionally and I was able to schedule an appointment for a consultation the next day. Should the need arise, I would not hesitate to retain this company and their services again. Thank you! Posted by Rebecca Albrecht

I was facing 10 to 15 years in prison on a aggravated kidnapping charge. I was involved with a woman that claimed that I had kidnapped her versus telling her live-in boyfriend that she was having an affair with me. Matt recorded her admitting that she made this false allegation in the hopes that her boyfriend wouldn't find out about us when he discovered that we were traveling to Chicago together. I couldn't have asked for a better investigator. The charge was immediately dismissed by the District Attorney after hearing the digital recording!
