Legal Locator is EVERYTHING they claim to be. Every time I could not find a Defendant in a case, I turn to Legal Locator, and they find the person. They are great and fairly priced. Use them without hesitation.

I have had the privilege of retaining T.L. Symonds/Legal Locator Service, L.L.C. a number of times over the past 15 years. On every occasion, I found her work to be very prompt, and extraordinarily professional. The facts that she uncovered for us were exactly what we needed and she presented them clearly. It was important to us that the activities and investigation be extremely confidential. That requirement was fully met. For investigative services, I cannot think of any firm which I would rank as high as T.L. Symonds/Legal Locator Service, L.L.C.

Ticia is the best private investigator I have every worked with in my 21 years as a corporate trust officer. She is enjoyable to work with and she finds what I ask her to find. Heirs are difficult to find, yet Ticia takes on all challenges given her AND is successful! Boy are the heirs of estates and trusts excited when we locate them and can deliver a bundle of money or assets to them. Everyone is happy!!!!
