About CVI

Industry Leadership

Founded in 1978, CVI is one of the largest independent investigation firms in the country serving the insurance industry exclusively.  Our founding principles of integrity, ethics and quality investigations set the standard others strive to achieve.

CVI attracts and retains the highest caliber of investigative professionals, and employs an exceptionally large and diverse team with a wide variety of educational backgrounds and experience.  Our investigators are career professionals and CVI is committed to helping each and every one achieve success as leaders in the industry.


Our Investigators

Setting the Standard

The most important thing to consider when choosing an investigative provider is the question: Who exactly will be conducting my investigation?

CVI investigators write and sign every one of their own reports. They are known to you by their name and their professional reputation is on the line. We will supply you with educational and background details on all of our field staff ahead of time.

CVI never subcontracts. We will turn down cases we cannot service at our industry leading standards. We have no contract staff. Our investigative team has a wide variety of experience in areas such as law enforcement, claims handling, litigation preparation, military investigations, and other relevant fields.  All are cross-trained in all phases of SIU investigations.  They are strategically located throughout the country and actually live where they work, providing a competitive advantage due to their familiarity with local laws, customs, contacts, resources and geography.

In an industry that is elsewhere known for high turnover, our success at building a national team of true career professionals is evidenced by the profile of our investigators.  Many have been with us for five, ten, fifteen, and even twenty-five years or more. We know of no other large agency with such longevity and a record of investigator experience or retention that compares.
