Our Happy Clients

“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.
