What Our Clients Are Saying


This firm is serious and gave excellent advice with regards to my concerns. I feel more confident about my situation because of their attention to detail and immediate commitment on the issue. I would definitely recommend them.


I would definitely call on Rick Johnson & Associates at Denver Private Investigators again in the future! Rick responded immediately to my concern, and quickly found the answer I was looking for. Five Stars, for sure!!


Thank you Rick for spending the better part of an hour educating me about my own needs that I thought I understood but actually did not. You did your best to talk me out of just throwing money at a situation in hopes that it would help.


I called Rick on two occasions one in 2014 and another recently in August 2019, regarding a security matters on two different properties. He listened attentively and quickly grasped my situation from multiple angles. I was quite scared for my safety and talking to him calmed me down as he explained the various options I had to remedy the challenge I was facing and told me that I didn’t need his services. I called after hours and he responded within minutes-Rick clearly cares about people and their safety;  our community is so fortunate to have him. I would highly recommend him and trust him completely to offer an in depth analysis with solutions based on decades of experience. Thank you, Rick for being a man of high honor, kindness and morality.


I called Rick with an investigation that I need that crosses over from Family into Business. He was very professional and provided tips to pursue that we had not thought of. Terrific information. He did not have the time to handle the investigation, but did take the time to explore the situation and to be very helpful. I am ever so grateful.


Rick Johnson started working on my case right away. He knew how to approach the situation and where to go/who to contact to gather information I needed. I appreciated his guidance and assessment of the situation. He is experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. I would work with him again if ever needed.

Mr. B

Rick was very prompt in returning my call, and quickly sized up the limits of private investigation. Although he could not do the investigation I was asking about, he gave me some savvy advice on ways to reduce the risk about which I was concerned. For local matters I would readily call him for help. My subject was out of state. Good guy, Rick Johnson.
