About Me

Jerald Smithey
Licensed Private Investigator

With over 23 years of investigation experience and 8 years of law enforcement-related work, I offer a range of investigative skills to pair with a commitment to meeting my clients’ needs.  Professional, discreet and confidential work is the goal for my clients, who include attorneys, businesses large and small, and individuals. No job is too small, but each job is important and warrants extraordinary attention to detail. My work has extended throughout Iowa and the entire Midwest, as well as to the coasts of the United States throughout the years.Free consultations are provided about how I might help you with your unique case.

I could provide testimonials about work that has resulted in acquiring information to assist in settling a civil case; or effort that contributed to the dismissal of criminal charges or reduction of the charges against a defendant; references to money saved by corporations through the discovery of crucial information through locating and interviewing significant witnesses or even through surveillance.  It is most important that we talk to discuss your specific case and how I might contribute to the best outcome for you!
