Asset Searches and Asset Investigations

Dirigo Investigations and Security conducts asset searches investigations for many Clients including law firms and insurance companies and well as creditors who are experiencing a loss due to a possible bankruptcy.  Unfortunately, there are many occasions when assets are intentionally hidden or transferred to avoid detection.

Dirigo’s expert investigators use a creative combination of advanced restricted access data, careful e-analysis and in many case on the ground investigation techniques. We physically locate and if possible photograph and video record many assets that were previously not detected.

Adjusters and Clients Do Have More Than One Choice


Contact: Tom Santaguida, Managing Partner (207) 373-9317

AUGUSTA, MAINE – During the past three years, we have heard a number of potential insurance adjuster Clients express that they thought that the only choice they had for worker’s compensation surveillance and other claims investigation services in Maine and that was the services of our competitors. Our response is always “There are many choices for professional investigation services available. If you have not tried other firms services, how do you know you are getting the best fit and getting what you want?”

The information we hear speaks to us – it tells us we need to market our services more effectively; it tells us that often times, potential Clients may default to an easy route – take the route they know – use the services of the firm they have heard of, regardless of the results. Our reaction to this is to simply say “Give us a try.”

In the past three years, every single time a new Client has given Dirigo an opprtunity, they have stayed with Dirigo Investigations.

Dirigo Investigations hires bright, creative, respectful and professional investigators and highly intelligent and personable support staff. We do our work for you – your way – the Client’s way. We combine our skills, expertise and customer service with your processes, your investigation protocols, your administrative requirements and your invoicing systems to give you, our Client’s – customized, optimum and preferred vendor style services.

Give Dirigo Investigations an opportunity to show you that you do have a choice.

Do You Need a Private Investigator?

Investigation Needs – Assess Your Situation Carefully

Do you think you might need a private investigator? Before you decide to move forward with a private investigations firm to work for you, consider the following:

• What is your goal and what are you trying to achieve?
• Can you achieve your goal with hiring a private investigator?
• Do you have funds available to pay for an investigation?
For example, a potential Client may believe that their spouse is not being faithful. They also state that they want to remain married. A question we ask of that person is have they considered marriage counseling? Most times, the answer is no – yet the goal is not to “catch the spouse cheating” but to save their marriage. Therefore a marriage counselor might be a better first step than a private investigator.
On the other hand, many people suspect a spouse is being unfaithful but have also made up their mind that they want to pursue a divorce. They request surveillance be conducted to affirm that there is an affair with another person. When asked why, many times the response is they “want peace of mind” or “just want to know the truth.” This is the type of scenario where an investigation is valuable and probably worthwhile because the end goal is to get to the truth.
Dirigo Investigations will not conduct an investigation unless we believe we can assist the Client in a meaningful manner. We conduct private investigations all over Maine, and treat each Client with respect, courtesy and with their best interests in mind. A person considering an investigation may call us, without charge, and discuss their situation. Sometimes we can assist and sometimes we may advise the caller that we do not believe an investigation will be worth the cost.
If a Client proceeds with a case, Dirigo has private investigators positioned throughout Maine to make the investigation efficient and effective.
