Custody Case

My wife of 20 years took our 14 year old son James and moved somewhere
in Upstate NY. I hired Tom Rudolph with Ernest Ryan Investigators to find
where they had moved to so that I could have a relationship with my boy.
In the meantime, my soon to be ex-wife, called the local police and lodged
false harassment charges against me. She did this so that she could get an
order of protection and try to make me into a monster. Investigator Rudolph
did locate my ex-wife in the Albany, NY area. Through constant
surveillance of her relatives, he was able to learn that was a party for one
her of siblings. Mr. Rudolph followed my wife to her new residence and
was eventually able to video and photograph her and my son at several
events. He also obtained important documentation that showed she
registered my son at a private school and stole thousands of dollars from our
joint account months before she even left. Eventually, through several court
appearances, we were able to show how devious she was and I was
awarded custody. My son and I have a great relationship now and I feel I
owe it to Thomas Rudolph’s relentless work. He never gave up and even
went to court with me. The charges of harassment were dropped!

Cheating Spouse

My husband and I are both doctors at the same hospital. Unfortunately,
about five years into our marriage and just after our Sara was born, I had a
feeling something just was not right. He started going out after work, spent
more time at the gym and less time with us. I hired Ernest Ryan
Investigators to look into it. Mr. Rudolph conducted surveillance of my
husband on many dates. My husband was very careful. Eventually, we
found out that he was having an affair with a close friend of mine.
Investigator Rudolph provided me with photographs and video of the two of
them going to a motel during the daytime and later going to dinner. I
understand that we now have a no fault clause for divorce in NY State, but
I just needed to know for my own piece of mind. The evidence that
investigator Rudolph obtained helped at the time of divorce because my
husband wanted to spare his reputation.

Property Dispute

The land I have been farming on for 30 years was actually leased with a
buyout clause from a neighbor on a handshake agreement. Unfortunately,
that neighbor recently passed and the nursing home he was in was now
taking this land and selling it. I hired Ernest Ryan Investigators to assist with
the situation. Thomas Rudolph was able to locate some old farmhands that
were still living and were aware of our agreement and obtained notarized
sworn statements from them. Eventually, I also hired an attorney and with
this evidence, the court honored the buyout clause and I was able to
purchase the land. I was really impressed with the work performed.

I hired Ernest Ryan Investigators because my son’s mother had custody of
him and was trying to block me from seeing him. I knew that she had a
drinking problem and used drugs. It didn’t matter to family court. They just
awarded custody to her because she was the mother and was at home more
than I was. It seemed that I was being penalized because I was working for
a living. Anyway, I hired investigator Rudolph to see if he could get
evidence of her way of life. Rudolph found that she was drinking and going
out pretty regular. In addition to getting video, he interviewed some
neighbor’s and obtained written statements that supported her habits and
neglect of my son. It took a while, but I did get custody of my son and his
mother has to have supervised visits. I feel that he is in a better place now.

I own a small construction company just outside of Kingston, NY. I had an
employee, John that said he hurt his leg at work. Another employee of mine
told me that he saw John working out at  a local gym. I only had the
minimum required insurance for my business. Anyway, I hired Ernest Ryan
Investigators to conduct surveillance on John. Within a few weeks,
investigator Rudolph obtained several videos that showed John working out,
working for himself and Jet Skiing. As soon as I presented this to my
attorney, the civil lawsuit was dropped and John is now facing charges.

False Charges

My name is Tim and I was arrested for assault in 2013 during a house
party. I was at the party, but I was not drinking and did not hit anyone.
Someone was hit with a bottle and they had to get stitches. I told the police
when they arrived that I was not involved. I later found out, that the cousin
of the one that committed the assault told the police that I did it. The police
just didn't want to hear my side of the story. My sister hired a private
investigator to help me while I was sitting in jail. I later found out that it was
Thomas Rudolph. I am writing this to tell people that he found at least 5
people that gave him statements saying I wasn't involved. He also got
someone to come forward to give testimony identifying the person that
broke the bottle at the party. I know a lot of people say they are innocent,
but I really was and Thomas Rudolph proved that. I lost my job because
and part of my reputation because someone did not want to take the time
and sort things out from the beginning.
