What school taught you that’s wrong for real-world Private Investigators.

Schools teach you to make your reports longer and (maybe) add a summary. And if you add a summary, they tell you to put it at the end of the report.

It the real world you make the report as long as it needs to be (and no longer) plus…

You include a summary and you put it first!

How long should the summary be?

I try hard to keep it down to one paragraph. If I find the summary going longer than one paragraph, I really have to look and make sure I have a good reason to add that extra.

And the summary is literally first. Top half of page one.

Clients love this. Especially attorneys and paralegals. And if they like your reports, there’s better odds that they will hire you for additional work!

  1. I am a new lic’d PIA with the state of NC. I have just discovered your videos and I can say that I have learned so much in your short youtube videos. All of the little tricks, and ideas you post I can only hope to take these with me in the field and better myself. I posted on my facebook today about how I love your quote ” never violate the laws of God or man”… Love it!!
    Thank you for your time!!!
