The first group of investigators that I hired, were caught following my husband before they could catch him. This made it more difficult to get the stuff my lawyer told me I needed. When I first spoke with Jim Casteel, he told me that it may be difficult and that it may even cost more to catch him at this point. Within a week They had the pictures I needed and it ended up being very affordable after all. They put together a nice report that looked like a book and sent it to my lawyer. We didn't even have to go to court, my husband agreed to what I wanted and we settled.

I am an Attorney in Birmingham and have worked with a lot of investigative firms. Casteel & Associates are very professional and seem to go to whatever extent necessary to get the job done. I had to have two witnesses (man and wife) served last Friday to appear in court on the following Monday. When the Casteels arrived at the residence they found that the couple had separated and were now living in separate towns. The wife was located and served in a mobile home park in Vincent and the husband in a hotel room in Alexander city. This was all accomplished by 7:00 p.m. on Friday. If your not using these guys, you should be

About eight months ago I discovered some text messages on my wife’s phone that caught me completely by surprise. She was late taking our daughter to school and ran out without her phone. I guess her boyfriend expected that she would be in the car by herself at this time. I did not confront her, I just left for work so that I would not have to explain to her why I looked like I was about to faint or get sick. I got to work and was in my own world, I couldn’t think about my work at all. I didn’t know what to do so I thought I would call a private investigator. That was a mistake, I started calling investigators I found on line and they all seemed to have a different idea about what I need what I needed to do next. This just confused me more. Some of the people I talked to sounded like they knew what they were talking about; but some seemed like they were trying to get whatever they could from me. Later I found that there are no license requirements for private investigators in Alabama and there are people out there working as private investigators who have criminal records and major law suits against them.
The next thing I did was contact an attorney who came highly recommended to me by one of my business partners. I retained this attorney who told me to contact Jim Casteel. I felt comfortable within five minutes of speaking to Jim. Jim’s first question to me was “have you discussed your situation with your attorney?” He explained to me that it was important that he make sure that his services are going to benefit me before he accepted a retainer. Over the next several weeks, while I was dealing with the fact that my life was about to change drastically and permanently, Jim and his crew began to gather evidence (indisputable photographic evidence) of the affair as I continued to try to conceal and signs that I was suspicious of her when she was near me. This was difficult and several times I wanted to confront her or him or both. Jim was always available when I called, even after hours and this helped keep me on track every time I became tempted to do something that would hurt my own case or give up what we knew to early. I was shocked at what Jim found; this guy she was seeing was a father’s worst nightmare with prior sexual assault charges and more. I could not have held myself together without Jim talking m e through things and re-assuring me that my children would be the courts primary concern. I am since divorced with primary custody of my two children and possession of the marital home. She was awarded one of our three rental houses (which I wasn’t really pleased with) and I kept all of the other assets. She was granted supervised visitation of the children and forbid, by the court, to have her boyfriend around the children ever! This stands even if the two of them decide to get married.
Jim says that it was more her bad behavior than his good work that helped me in court; but I know that it was Jims work that made the judge aware of her behavior and his support that helped me get through this. I’ll never forget when Jim told me “the children will panic only if they see you panic.
If you’re not sure what to do, talk to Jim, he doesn’t push himself on you and he will steer you in the right direction.

Jim Casteel located my father for me. I had never met him and he was not aware that I was born. I was shocked when I called Jim, he found him in a mater of minutes and It only cost me $50.00. I had already spent over 700.00 in other places looking for him.
P.S. I have traveled to New York to meet my Dad, I have two half sisters and a half brother who are all great to me. My father and I speak on the phone daily and I have developed a great relationship with all of them.
