Due Diligence

The term 'Due Diligence' refers to the process that ensures that an individual or entity is an appropriate and suitable partner for any business transaction. By obtaining more information about the subject, you the client are enabled to make a more knowledgeable decision. The results from EPIS due diligence efforts should help you better assess the business risks of the transaction as well as assist you with negotiations.

Due diligence prior to any business deal, allow you to become familiar with the activities of the target before there is any commitment.

My Son found Mike at Empire Pacific because we needed a detective in order to find someone. We had spend a lot of time and money on many search people websites and never found anything current on the person we were trying to find. We hired Mike to do an initial check to find the person. Mike called and said on the initial check that he had found what we needed, he said the second step would be to go look by foot and there would be a fee per hour. About 2 hours later Mike called and told us he had found the person and gave me his current phone number. I called and sure enough it was the person I was looking for. Now this shows how honest Mike is because he could have easily billed me for a few extra hours of leg work (which is paid per the hour) and I would not have known he already found the person. Mike was very attentive when I called and either picked up his phone or called me back very fast. I would highly recommend Mike, he is vey good at what he does and is respectful, honest and FAST!

Mike Hakimi from EPIS is a true professional. He helped me with my case. He delivers effectively and fast! I was trying to find someone that nobody has heard from him from since the late 90's, I was very unsure he was still around. I needed to find him and interview him for my movie project. A key character. And Mike incredibly found him. Don't hesitate hiring Mike for any type of service.

I have highest, highest praise for Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services. I had to take someone to court and I was concerned whether sheriff is efficient enough to do the serving or they will just attempt and I pay for nothing. I talked to Mike about serving this particular person and on top of it I try to force future steps of collection and Mike was extremely helpful to show me in and outs of all the options that I have and how he can help me.

My concern was the person that I am suing would play hide and seek, not available during the day and difficult to catch. Sure enough Mike served the paper within 2 to 3 days and informed me accordingly.

I am so happy to know Mike and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that has needs for his services.

I was searching for a family relative, for over 40+ years with no such luck. So I decided to find a private investigator. I contacted Mike at Empire Pacific Investigative Services and in the same day he found the person I was looking for easily. I was so blown away! This service is AAA+ and I would definitely use them again, again and again! Thank you Mike!

I contacted Mike at Empire to do some research for me on an old insurance claim. It ended up not being along the lines of work that he was an expert in but what was so great about the experience was that Mike went out of his way to find me someone that did specialize in the area. If you are considering a couple options on who you need for your investigation you...
