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
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
Rudolph’s relentless work. He never gave up and even went to court
with me. The
charges of harassment were dropped. Pat, Gym Coach-Long Island, NY.

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
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.
conducted surveillance of my husband on many dates. My husband was
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
clause from a neighbor on a handshake agreement. Unfortunately, that
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.  
James and Kim, Fort Edward, NY.


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
surveillance on John. Within a few weeks, investigator Rudolph obtained
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. Thanks. Sammy, Ellenville, NY.

Custody Case

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
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.   Charles,

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 cut 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.   Tim, Chatham, NY.
