Why you should choose Hogue Investigations

Hogue Investigations has been conducting private investigations for over 14 years in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. We are based in Carrollton, Texas. We pride ourselves in using the latest technology to assist you with your investigation. Our equipment includes high-end photographic and video equipment.



While we are not the cheapest investigative firm in the industry, we are certainly not the most expensive. We are not a profit-motivated company and will not charge you with unnecessary costs. The direction of your case is not only set by the objectives of the case but also by your budget. We will work with you.



We will get you results, however, we are ethical and do not break the law. This is of the utmost importance especially if your case will go to court. If another private investigation firm offers to do something that you think may be illegal, contact us first for a free consultation.



All of our investigators are trained and qualified to perform your investigation. Most of our investigators have a college education and are Certified Fraud Examiners (CFE). They have at least three years of full-time experience conducting investigations and all have passed a stringent FBI background investigation and fingerprint check which requires the investigator to not have a criminal record.
