 For Attorneys_ 

Alvarez Private Investigators will be the investigative arm of your client’s team and we take the responsibility of representing you seriously by handling your client’s case in a professional and ethical manner. Each case and each attorney has specific requirements and some of the services we provide are as follows:


Criminal Defense Investigations / Drug Trafficking and Drug Smuggling Cases

During the initial years of Rob’s career, he was detailed to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Drug Enforcement Task Force in South Texas on the US/Mexican border. Rob worked alongside multiple federal,

state, and local law enforcement officers on multiple Organized Crime Enforcement Task Force cases (OCDETF) to investigate drug trafficking/smuggling cases. After Rob transferred to the Spokane office, he

conducted multiple cocaine, heroin & marijuana drug smuggling investigations in the Yakima/Pasco/Richland/Kennewick area that originated from Mexico into the United States. Later, Rob investigated smuggling of marijuana, also known as “BC bud,” from Canada into the United States.


Spanish Speaking Private Investigators for Witness Statements

Criminal investigations in drug trafficking/smuggling cases often require that statements be taken from Hispanic witnesses for whom English is a second language. Given the fact that witness statements must be precise in every detail in these cases the services of a bilingual Spanish speaking private investigator is needed. Regardless of where in Washington State or Idaho you need a witness statement taken in Spanish, Alvarez Private Investigations LLC will get the job done.
