About Gold Investigations, Inc.
"Harriet did investigations for me at my old firm. She always did great work. Not good, great. When I started at my present firm I wanted to use her, but the firm was already using another investigator and I was asked to use him too. Eventually I had what turned out to be a seven figure case where we could not locate one of the defendants. This other investigator told me he was at a dead end as far as trying to find that defendant. I asked Harriet to see what she could do and she found the guy inside of two weeks. Then she hooked me up with a good process server in that area of the country to get the guy served. I told my boss about Harriet's work on this case and we have been using her ever since."

"Ms. Gold was truly exceptional at her ability to perform our work in a timely and cost efficient manner. Our case was fairly complex and required multiple follow-up items, and Ms. Gold was always professional, responsive, and correct in her assessments. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs private investigative services. She was a pleasure to work with."
"Harriet is great at finding and conversing with witnesses. She has a knack for gaining the trust of the stranger and getting them to tell her about their knowledge of the situation at hand. She is reliable and easy to work with."
Bill Strickland, Esq.
"Gold Investigations' performance on a recent case for my firm was superior in virtually every aspect. We needed to locate a witness, interview him, hopefully obtain favorable information, and do it all in a compressed timeframe. Gold responded with immediate attention and resources, located the witness's residences, utilized local resources to determine the witness was away on a trip and would return in a week, timed the interview for a moment that we hoped the witness would find acceptable, made contact with the witness in a favorable setting, and obtained decisive information on a critical defense in the case. Gold generated an expeditious and quality work product, and I unequivocally recommend their investigation services to others."
