In short they accomplished our objective far more thoroughly than I would have thought possible.

“Really cared…”
Our family used Artus Group for a crisis situation in which a family member was in danger.  Rob and his team worked tirelessly to locate our loved one. They wouldn’t give up until they could supply us with the information we needed, and never once did we ever feel like just a ‘client’.  Rob always made us feel that he really cared about our situation and he proved that by getting the job done. I highly recommend Artus Group for any situation you may be in, especially if it’s a sensitive one.

“Consummate professional…”
Rob Artus is the consummate professional. When we needed his guidance during a very traumatic time for our family, he exercised an intelligent and thorough process to investigate the background on an unscrupulous individual. Rob was a calming voice during a tumultuous time for us. We would absolutely utilize Rob’s services again and are grateful to him.

Mark Adams

“Cannot recommend highly enough…”
Artus Group provided professional assistance to our family in a dire time of need. Our family was experiencing a difficult and emotional custody situation with nowhere to turn until our attorney suggested gaining some additional insights through working with Artus Group. Rob Artus and his team were able to compile a complete background and current analysis of our particular situation in a very reasonable amount of time. The comprehensive search and investigation uncovered many facts that were unknown to us and were extremely instrumental in redefining our strategy for custody. With that information in hand we were able to obtain the best possible outcome for the benefit of our grandchild. I cannot recommend Rob Artus highly enough and we would not hesitate to utilize this professional and confidential service again.
