Meet the Founders

Trust the Professionals

Robert is the Founder and Co-Owner of API

Robert has been a professional investigator for over a decade and a half. Robert is highly experienced in insurance fraud and claims investigations and specializes in surveillance. Robert has trained investigators in stationary and mobile surveillance, the use of up to date surveillance equipment and in writing effective and professional reports. In early 2010 Robert became involved in and testified in an effort to defeat Colorado HB10-1012, a bill that would have eliminated surveillance in Colorado workers compensation investigations. The bill was ultimately defeated. Robert became President of the Professional Private Investigators Association of Colorado in November of 2010. During his term as President, Robert was influential in introducing Colorado’s PI license bill. The bill would ultimately be passed into law after 36 years of previous attempts by PPIAC and took effect in July 2015. As past President of PPIAC Robert continues to work toward elevating the standards of professionalism for investigators in Colorado. Robert utilizes his years of experience and knowledge to obtain the most accurate information possible to help our clients resolve claims.

When lawyers or clients ask me for a referral to do surveillance, I immediately think of Robert and Andrea. They have such sterling reputations in this specialty, and know so many tricks of the trade that they can bring to bear to successfully resolve a client's problem.

They are so gracious in sharing their expertise with fellow investigators, and have been stalwarts and huge contributors in the Professional Private Investigators Association of Colorado...I cannot say enough about this husband and wife surveillance team. In short, AWESOME, and you will not be disappointed if you retain them, no matter how difficult or sensitive the assignment.
