Dire Straits – Private Investigations
What do I do?
I am a private investigator based in London, England. I have been working in the industry for five years and specialise in cases involving missing persons, child protection and digital evidence.
I hold the following investigative industry qualifications:
- Advanced FTK from Syntricate
- Computer Forensics from Guidance Software
- IEF Essentials from Magnet Forensics
- Nuix Foundations: Investigations from Nuix
As well as the following child protection qualifications:
- Safeguarding Children from Stop It Now
- Eradicating Child Sexual Abuse; Child Sexual Abuse And The Internet; Understanding Child Sexual Abusers; Women Who Sexually Abuse Children from The Lucy Faithfull Foundation
- Basic & Advanced Child Trafficking from ECPAT
I am also a qualified First Aider (St John Ambulance) and have an Enhanced Criminal Records Check: Child Workforce from the DBS.
I take client privacy very seriously. All investigations are conducted on a TAILS operating system, meaning the only digital records I keep are invoices and anonymised ‘skeleton’ details for case studies.
I believe in conducting sound digital forensic investigations, and I believe in doing that without compromising privacy rights.
At the end of each case, any paper notes or records are shredded and then given to Icheb and Mezoti for further dismantling:
I hold insurance with Hiscox for product liability, professional indemnity, and business equipment contents (both at location and away, within the EU).

What will it cost?
Each case is different, so that’s a hard question to answer! In general, civil cases cost somewhere in the region of £100-£500 in total (plus expenses), depending on their complexity.
How long will it take?
Again, it depends on the case. Most civil cases are wrapped up within a week, but some of the more complex cases may take longer.
