Hourly Rate

Hourly rate of $60.00 ($50.00 for Public Safety Agencies) for investigative and consultation services. The same rate will be charged for report writing, driving time and all other activities relative to the investigation.

Court and Deposition

Court and deposition time charges will be at the hourly rate of $60.00 and will be in addition to a minimum fee of $250.00. This fee is payable (in advance) upon request or summons for a court or deposition appearance, and is required for each day requested or summoned. This fee is non-refundable.


Mileage fee of $.52 per mile. Travel that requires airline or other commercial carrier will be billed at the actual cost.

Meal Fee

Meal fee of $8.00 for breakfast, $10.00 for lunch and $18.00 for dinner will be billed when investigative services require me to be away from the Lakeport area during normal meal times.


Lodging costs will vary and will reflect the actual cost (a receipt will be provided upon request), but will usually not exceed $125.00 per night. The exception to this will be when travel is required to metropolitan areas where no reasonable lodging can be obtained for that amount. I will not stay at inexpensive hotels, nor will I seek expensive lodging. I will in midrange (Best Western or Holiday Inn type) hotels.


Photograph will be provided at a cost of $4.00 for each 8” x 10” color print (digital) and $2.75 for each 5” x 7” color print (digital).


Other reasonable costs, including, but not limited to, vehicle rental, special equipment rental, court fees, long distance telephone calls, message service fees, photocopying expenses, postage, informant fees, credit reports, etc. will be billed at actual cost.

The outcome of any investigation is always uncertain. I do not guarantee any specific outcome, either expressed or implied. I will report the facts and circumstances as I find them. I will not attempt to alter the facts or circumstances in any investigation.

Additionally, I will not intentionally violate any laws. I will not provide false or misleading information in any report, whether written or oral.

I will act in a professional and ethical manner at all times.
