I would highly recommend the services of Lauth Investigations – I was in need of the services of an investigator for a custody dispute. A coworker who had previously used Lauth Investigations International on a missing person case recommended that I call the Indianapolis Private Investigator and owner of Lauth Investigations International, Thomas Lauth. After speaking with Tom the first time – a sense of relief came over me, he immediately made me feel comfortable with my decision to hire an investigator and he answered all my questions and kept me informed throughout the entire investigative process. Tom is an educated and experienced PI with over 20 years of experience. He and his staff were very kind and took the time to listen to all of my needs and concerns. During a very difficult time I was treated with understanding, compassion, and respect. He made very smart and reasonable suggestions about how to best proceed with my individual case. And was quick to proceed almost as an advocate for my child – Tom was able to learn and confirm my suspicions and get me all the information and proof that I needed to take to the Judge. I am pleased to report that based on the outcome of this investigation – I was able to win my court case and protect my child. Thank you, Tom. I appreciate all that you did for us!!

It is my pleasure to provide a recommendation for the Indiana based Lauth Investigations International. As founder of the Nation’s Missing Children Organization, Inc., in 1994 and the National Center for Missing Adults in 2000, I served as CEO for nearly 17 years. During that time the agency utilized the services of Lauth Investigations as an adviser on missing person cases and also referred hundreds of families of missing persons who requested investigative services. The feedback from families of missing persons who retained services or received pro bono services from Lauth Investigations was always consistently positive. The staff at Lauth Investigations always treated our clients with utmost compassion, professionalism and respect. Lauth Investigations also worked cooperatively and professionally with law enforcement agencies throughout the country on behalf of our clients who also provided very positive feedback. In addition, as former CEO and media liaison for National Center for Missing Adults, Lauth Investigations owner, Thomas Lauth, and I frequently worked with national news media and helped generate extensive news coverage for the families of missing persons we represented throughout the nation. After working nearly two decades with Lauth Investigations, I highly recommend utilizing their services!

I anticipate my first thoughts were like many others when I received the initial contact from Lauth Investigations International, this is a scam. Well, nothing could have been further from the truth. After one interaction with the agent assigned to my case I was confident of the legitimacy of the company, their professionalism and honesty. While working with Lauth, I experienced many personal challenges, the death of my sister and my brothers diagnosis of advanced dementia. During all of this I as never pressured to conform to a deadline. My agent worked with me on my timeline, was kind, patient and supportive of me.My home state has many difficult hurdles to cross in providing documentation and unfortunately are not as automated and helpful as some. My agent was with me every step of the way providing exceptional advice and encouragement. I could not have been more pleased with my agent and overall experience with this company. I highly recommend them!

It was brought to my attention that a group of our employees had banded together and were conducting illegal activities at one of our plants. The employee that brought this my attention feared for the safety of herself and her family so the investigation would have to be thorough and handled discreetly. Thanks to Lauth Investigations, that is what exactly happened and the employees in question were not only terminated but brought to justice as well.

Workers’ Compensation Fraud is the most unethical thing an employee can do because it takes away from those who are actually in need. I, unfortunately, had to deal with not one, not two, but three of my workers whom I suspected but had no proof. Enter the professionals of Lauth Investigations. They conducted a very informative investigation into the employees in question. Turns out, two of them were committing the fraud while the third one was legitimate.

I’m the HR Director at my firm and a much classified employee problem was brought to my attention. This delicate issue was something that couldn’t be handled solely by my staff so I sought out the services of Lauth Investigations. Their team handled this situation with the utmost level of professionalism that I have rarely seen from this type of company. Thanks to the report they submitted to me, I was able to find a resolution.

There were numerous suspicions regarding one of one employee's being involved in illegal and quite frankly, immoral activities towards one of my clients but when I went to my HR Director and she said they said they required proof of such incursions. This is when I sought the services of Lauth Investigations. They took the case and produced the necessary evidence and we were able to justifiably terminate this employee. We are very pleased with their work and will call on them again if needed.

My firm was in need of a company that would be able to investigate a case of what I knew to be workers’ compensation fraud. I did my due diligence and the services offered by Lauth Investigations were exactly what we needed. They conducted a comprehensive investigation on the person in question and provided solid, concrete evidence of her fraudulent activities that we were able to use. Thanks for the help!

Lauth Investigations International was hired to help protect our brand. When another company infringed on our brand and patent, we needed help. They took the case and did a very thorough investigation and was able to show there was indeed an infringement. We are very happy with the results and we know they will protect the brand. We are so glad they came on board!

We have a very large staff and we rely on Lauth Investigations International to conduct all of our background checks. They are very thorough, which helps with our hiring decisions. We also asked them to conduct a corporate audit so we could see exactly where we were as a company. Their results really helped as we planned for the next few years. They are professional, very experienced, and provide excellent company feedback.

Lauth Investigations is certainly an expert in their field. They helped our company with a corporate audit and detailed where some money was being wasted. They also found that one of employees who filed for workers compensation filed fraudulently. We were able to nip that in the bud as well with their help. Great job, Lauth!

We hired Lauth Investigations to perform a corporate audit because we seem to have people working unapproved overtime and our profit margin was not as high as last year this time. They worked with our corporate offices and staff to resolve this problem. We even had an anonymous person come in and ‘worked’ for us to see first hand what was happening. It turned out, several employees had been falsifying their time records and doing minimal work. These were people that we knew and respected and we were very disappointed when we found out about the theft. Their investigation was very enlightening and as a result, we made a number of changes. This problem has been eliminated and we are confident moving forward. Our numbers are back on track thanks to Lauth.

Our company had some missing funds and we could not pinpoint the party responsible or the funds. Lauth Investigations did a thorough corporate audit and detailed research into the matter. After looking into our employee’s work, Lauth found that money was being moved to an account we had no record of. Thanks to them, we were able to take all of their investigative results and halt this issue, terminate the individual, and have our documents in order for court. They did an outstanding job and I definitely recommend their service.

Lauth Investigation has been a profound asset to my office. As an attorney specializing in custody cases, they have been able to obtain needed evidence to secure the future of many children through our office.

Lauth investigation has saved my company a lot of money and ensured my reliable employees have gotten exactly what they should have. They were hired the first time by us for an employee who we honestly thought was trying to violate their works comp expectations. Lauth confirmed not only was he doing that, but that he was nearly healed. It has been routine to have them sporadically check on employees since then. Thankfully we don't get many comp cases, but it's nice to know someone will defend those who need it.

Lauth Investigations is one company I would trust enough to recommend to a friend or family member.

They were very thorough, professional, and honestly cared about getting the outcome I was and am looking for.

The investigators at Lauth have extensive law enforcement experience which gives them the knowledge and tools to get the job done in a timely, thorough, professional manner. There were suspicious activities happening at one of our storage centers and sure enough they got the evidence for us to not only terminate several employees but to report them to the authorities for their human trafficking ring.

Lauth Investigations International offers a great service for a fair price. I was pleasantly surprised to receive much more than what I was expecting. They managed to obtain so much information for me that I was able to use in my terminal of spousal support case. The detailed information within the documents that were provided proved that they are highly knowledgeable of laws.

I needed a trusted investigation of an incredibly confidential and most sensitive employee issue. I sought out the services of Lauth Investigations and they handled it professionally, which allowed me to not get personally involved in the aspects of the issue. This allowed me to take a clear and impartial approach to resolving the alleged issue with confidence rather than relying on hearsay.

Our attorney recommended we retain LII. They did a solid job investigating and documenting facts about an employee of ours we suspected of drug use. Their documentation led to a peaceful resolution to the case and termination of the employee at no risk to us.

I hired Lauth Investigations for my child custody case. I'd had suspicions that my former spouse wasn't providing a safe environment for our 4 year old when I dropped him off. A couple times, my son came home sick and another time, he had a bruise on his arm. They found out some details I don't want to mention here, but having that information helped me win full custody of my child. I could not be more grateful for their services.

Our Law Office has worked with Tom Lauth and his team of investigators for well over 25 years. From locating clients, to interviewing witnesses, performing background checks, etc, his firm is top notch! Aside from the legal work, I referred Tom to a friend in a non-custodial parent abduction case. Tom successfully located the father and missing child, living secretly in another country! In another referral case of a similar nature, Tom successfully located the fleeing father after he left the State with the child. Tom talked to the father personally, via cell phone, and managed to successfully talk this guy into turning his car around and returning the abducted child back to his custodial mother!I have only great things to say about Tom and I highly recommend Lauth Investigations 110%!

He is very honest, has a great disposition and works extremely hard to get the job done. I have known Tom Lauth for 4 years and I will continue to use his services.

I did quite a bit of research into finding a top notch investigation firm and Lauth stood out above the rest and after our talk and meeting with them, it only confirmed what others have said. They have years of experience and extremely skilled at what they do. They took the time to find out exactly what I was needed, listened intently, ask follow up questions to help even get more info and then they went and did their work. If you're looking for a private investigator or background checks who deliver results, you've found your firm with Tom and his team.

Lauth Investigations was very thorough in their investigation and was able to discover the information we needed for a pending lawsuit. However, the greatest attribute is their customer support and service. Lauth was constantly updating us on their progress and asking about our needs in order to best accommodate.

Wow! We used this firm to help locate a missing semi. We had no idea where the truck may be, and very little information surrounding the man that was supposedly in the truck. Within four days these guys had him narrowed down to one small town in Georgia. They did a wonderful job and are also very well at interacting with their customers on a personal level. I would highly recommend and if we need similar services in the future, there is no doubt that Lauth Investigations will be the ones that we call!

Featured Success Stories

– A worker’s Compensation Case

Private investigators at Lauth Investigations International were contracted by an adjuster in Indianapolis to ascertain if a claimant was falsifying his work-related injuries for an extended vacation. The individual presented a diagnosis from his local chiropractor indicating he was suffering from chronic lower back and recurring neck pain, yet statements from the individual’s neighbor revealed the veracity of his injuries were disputable. After 12 hours of surveillance activities at the claimant’s residence, the assigned insurance investigator discovered the man was able to tolerate his claimed suffering well enough to clean the household pool, rake fallen leaves, and without struggle, carry 13 heavy leaf bags to the end of the driveway for trash pickup. The adjuster was able to make a quick resolution after investigators provided video and a comprehensive written report to close the worker’s compensation claim.

– A Questionable Death Claims Case

Lauth Investigations International conducted the death investigation of a 17-year-old. According to police, the teen had been murdered by his brother, but that seemed unlikely because the deceased teen’s brother was confined to a wheelchair at the time of the teen’s death. Lauth investigators, who specialize in death investigations, were able to obtain evidence showing that the 17-year-old committed suicide. The cause of death was determined and based upon a vital witness statement taken from the nephew of the victim, whom the police had never interviewed.

Letter from Donna, the mother of Seth

”Recently my son was missing and we had nowhere to turn until we found you. Our son had taken off for work and never got there. No one knew where he was and I called the Missing Children’s Hotline. You don’t know what you gave back to us. My son means the world to me and getting him back made my world complete again.”

”I hired three other private investigators in the city of Indianapolis and they did not produce any results for me.
