I would highly recommend Emilio Garcia. I was searching for an investigator to assist me with an extremely complicated child custody situation involving South America. During my search I discussed my situation with several other investigative services. Many of Emilio’s competitors highly recommended Emilio for the task and situation. I was glad that I listened to them. Emilio exceeded all expectations. Communication, effectiveness, professional, and Emilio was there every time we needed him.

If you are in need of Investigative Services, I would not hesitate for a minute. Contact Emilio. Ydou will be glad you did

Emilio is a consumate professional who has a unique appreciation of brand protection and piracy issues affecting Latin America. I have recently had the pleasure of working closely with him in Brazil and Paraguay where it is clear that he has an extensive network of public and private sector contacts who hold him in extremely high regard.
