PDK Investigations is owned and operated by Patrick R. Lee. Patrick graduated from Indiana University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts in Forensic Studies. He worked as a police officer in the states of Indiana and South Carolina. He then became a multi-line claims adjuster for Allstate Insurance Company and received additional training as a Field Auto Adjuster. In 1990, Patrick began his career as a private investigator and worked as a Lead Investigator for a local Tampa Bay area agency until 1999 when he established PDK Investigations, a full service investigative agency. Patrick has over 21 years of investigative experience during which time he has handled a myriad of civil and criminal investigations, surveillance, accident investigations, obtained reluctant witness interviews, and video documentation of numerous product and premises inspections. He has been trained as a legal videographer and has the ability to perform video depositions and examinations under oath for policy disputes. PDK will also provide notary services upon request.
The services provided by PDK Investigations include surveillance using video and still photography, skip trace locations, asset and background investigations, and civil and statewide criminal searches (available in most states). We have had tremendous success in obtaining reluctant witness statements from witnesses not willing to cooperate with insurance company representatives.

PDK’s team of investigators are licensed and insured and have a variety of professional experiences in both civil and criminal investigations. We offer a competitive investigative hourly rate for the above services.
