Atlantis Private Investigations is a 100% Native American and veteran owned private investigation firm in California. We are the preferred investigative firm for complex internal audits, litigation support, DFEH compliant workplace investigations, tribal government support, locating missing persons, insurance fraud, financial crimes, asset checks, personal background checks, family support and child monitoring.
Although Atlantis began as a simple partnership offering concierge-style services, we have grown into one of the largest and most successful investigation firms in the Central Valley of California. Atlantis has been awarded the Expertise “Best Private Investigator” and “Three Best Private Investigator” accolades in Fresno for four years in a row. CEO Michael Braa is regularly featured on local television having appeared frequently on ABC, NBC, CBS, and articles in the Fresno Bee and other periodicals.
Atlantis Private Investigations differs from traditional investigative firms because of our client-focused approach. We focus on client needs, offer a path to fulfill that need, and then back it in writing. We also reimagined the traditions of investigative research in the age of information. With so many sources available and so much misinformation, every fact presented needed to have multiple, reproducible sources. Interviews needed to be either recorded or witnessed by a third party. Eyewitness accounts did not exist unless they were supported by video or photographic evidence and every report had be prepared so that it could pass legal challenges regarding admissibility in a court of law.
These standards, developed partially out of necessity, are now the standards which Atlantis incorporates into every case. Multiple sources for every fact. Demonstrable evidence for every assertion. Clear and concise report writing.
Finally, Atlantis’ associate investigators must be properly licensed by the State in which they operate. This means first completing a period of field training and passing a skills test before they are allowed to work on a case. Prior to receiving their license, most will need to log over 6,000 hours of investigative work. Atlantis is more than just an investigation firm, it is a learning environment for the development of a new generation of private investigators. We started off as better because we had to be. We remain better because we want to be.
Atlantis has successfully adapted to the paradigm of a 21st century company without losing the romance of the traditional private eye.
