"I used AIP on two different occasions, and both times they exceeded my expectations. They were very thorough, and their attention to detail helped me to get the information I needed to get what I needed. I had used another local PI years ago and Darren was by far more professional, and had more versatile skill sets in the areas I needed most. I have referred him to some good friends and family over the years, and not one of them have ever given me less than great feedback. The price was more than reasonable for the results that were returned. Highly Recommended."--by Alexander Manzo
