About Us

What we do, and why

Help, justice, law

With a love of learning, solving puzzles, and a strong sense of justice, Siedow & Associates was formed in 1992. 

Over the years we've expanded,  exploring new, cutting edge  technology and partnering with some of the best in the world. A woman-owned and -operated business, we've worked not only in combating fraud, locating people and assets, and much more, but also worked extensively in humanitarian endeavors such as Human Trafficking, Elder Fraud and Abuse, and locating missing children. We've led investigations in national cases and appeared on major networks. WEtv did a special on some of our cases.

Why should you choose to work with us?

Confidential, caring, ethical

You wouldn't be contacting a Private Investigator if your issue was easy to solve, or unimportant. We respect that.  We also respect that you've chosen to spend your time and money with us to handle that issue. We have the experience and resources to maximize the return on that investment. We'll work with you to find the fastest, most cost effective and powerful approach to solving your problem.

Let's talk

Discuss your problem. Get experienced, competent, caring help.

We'll brainstorm with you, finding out all about your situation and suggesting resources that you may not even know exist. We'll find the most time- and cost-efficient way to give you peace of mind. What do you have to lose but your problems?

Custom Investigation team to solve your case fast and cost-effectively


Siedow & Associates began in 1992 by providing court and legal support services in the greater Los Angeles area. Our attention to detail and commitment to providing fast and courteous services helped us quickly build a large and loyal client base. At the same time we expanded our resources throughout the country and the world. We became known as the "Swiss Army Knife" of legal support companies.

Soon the demand expanded even further, and our clients asked us to provide private investigation services. To meet that demand, we built a global network of private investigators, legal and other investigative specialists capable of handling these areas and more:

Background Investigations

Civil & Criminal Investigations

Domestic Investigations

Identity Theft Investigations

People, Witness and Heir Locates

Property, Asset & Financial Investigations

Internet and Cyber Investigations

Elder Fraud and Abuse



Each case is unique, and is handled as such. We pull together a custom team to meet the specific needs of that client and case. Team members can include private detectives, attorneys, asset locators, financial analysts, computer and internet investigators, expert witnesses, industry specialists, undercover operatives and more - whatever it takes to get the job done effectively and with the maximum possible return for you, our client.
