"I have used Mike for the past several years, exclusively, as my private investigator for all my civil and criminal matters. Mike is a true professional. He does top notch work on every assignment, has excellent turn around, and the intuition to know what needs to be done. His reports are timely and well written and I know when I prepare for trials, motions, or depositions that I can rely on what he wrote as always accurate and thorough. He has a great way of dealing with people from all walks of life and I cannot count the number of times he has been able to get what I thought would be difficult witnesses to talk. I simply cannot recommend his services enough. You will not be disappointed."
--Walter McKee, McKee Law in Augusta, ME
"I can also say that Mike Tuminaro is by far the best investigator I have ever worked with. He is top notch. He is thorough. He is very accessible and makes himself available at any time I need him. He tracks down almost everyone I need spoken with. He gets recorded statements from almost everyone. He behaves like I am the most important thing to him. I use his reports and recordings regularly in negotiations. They are very helpful in convincing the prosecutors to make much more favorable offers resulting in better outcomes for my clients. I did that today on a probation violation case. This is a regular happening for me. We get the best possible product from Mike. "
--Edward Rabasco, Paradie, Rabasco & Seasonwein, Lewiston, ME
"I've been practicing criminal defense law for 34 years. I've had some excellent investigators ove the years. Mike is the best. very professional, he just "gets the job done".
"I can tell you that I speak on behalf of the Androscoggin County bar in general that we have been pleased with Mike’s work. I especially appreciate his report writing skills. His reports are very easy to read. Mike is also almost always available to do work on short notice. I’ve been using Mike’s services for several years now."
--Jim Howaniec, Attorney and Mayor of Lewiston, Lewiston, ME
"In May I will have completed 45 years of practice. The great majority of my work has been in the area of criminal defense. How many of us struggle to find a private investigator who can develop a case from a defense standpoint? A good PI must be able to work closely with the attorney. A good PI must be willing to become familiar with rules of evidence in order to maximize the usefulness of their work. A good PI must be willing to treat each client with dignity and afford that person the presumption of innocence. The lack of a preconceived notion of guilt is crucial to a good investigation. A good PI will write a report that is not a formulistic police speak document. A good PI will share with you their feelings about the strength or weaknesses of the evidence they have gathered. A good PI will be creative, not giving up at the first hint of frustration. A good PI must be reliable. A good PI must be timely. A good PI must be reasonable with their fees. Several years ago I lost a PI to law enforcement. He had been my right hand for almost a decade. That PI met all these criteria and I have missed him desperately. It is a wonderful coincidence to have been introduced to Mike about a year and a half ago. I quickly became aware that Mike met each of the criteria which makes a good PI. I have steered a great portion of my office´s work to Mike. I enjoy working with him as does each member of Sharon and Milton. Our clients trust him and work closely with him oftentimes bypassing me entirely. It takes a huge amount of trust to permit a PI to work with a client directly. I hope Mike´s business continues to grow. I can only say that he gets an A plus beside his name for each of those criteria. I can guarantee you that your defense will be all the stronger with Mike running the investigation."
--Leonard Sharon, Lenny Law, Lewiston, ME
"I just finished listening to the interview that you did for us on the Levesque case. You did a great job eliciting information from him, letting him tell the story, listening, parsing it down to the important facts and getting him to recommit to those facts. I would go so far as to say masterful. Really, a very good job especially given the fact that you had a very limited idea of what this case was about. You pointed him in all the directs I would have gone in a deposition. Very well done."
-- Caleigh Milton, Esq., Sharon and Milton, Lewiston, ME
Michael is a detail oriented private investigator with proven results. I hire Michael when we have tough cases that need extra attention because of his stellar reputation and result driven track record with our agency. If you need an investigator for any case, large or small, I would highly recommend Michael Tuminaro.
-- Dan Gagnon, President of National Protective Agency, Auburn, ME
"I have worked with Mike Tuminaro for many years and have the highest respect for his abilities. He is a hard worker that gets the job done!"
