Did you know?

In the state of Nebraska, it is not just anyone who can legally perform the tasks associated with a legal investigation.  The state government regulates and monitors professional investigators through the secretary of state's licensing division, where applicants are carefully screened through a rigorous background investigation.  A successful candidate must be familiar with both the laws and statutes that govern the investigative industry, as well as pass a written test for proficiency.  The applicant must have an education, background, and/or experience with thousands of hours' worth of verifiable relevant experience in order to qualify for any sort of investigative license.  Licensed investigators must hold surety bonds to guarantee strict performance of their duties, and all carry state-issued identification cards.  All of this is done to protect you, the consumer, from fraud and liability.  The Magnus Group urges you to verify the identity and licensing status of anyone claiming to be a licensed professional investigator if you have any concerns.  

Our origins

The investigators of The Magnus Group come from quality educations and have served in military, law enforcement, government, private, public, and corporate settings, as well as security and previous private investigative disciplines.  Each brings a unique set of skills and qualifications to work each day, allowing for a well-rounded pool of resources from which to draw upon.

Where We Operate

We proudly consider the entire state of Nebraska to be our "back yard."  While our headquarters office is in Omaha and we have a branch office in the state capitol of Lincoln, investigators of The Magnus Group have a reputation for resilience and thoroughness that has drawn clients from as far away as Washington state and Massachusetts to resolve their Nebraska-based cases, with some being more than 400 miles from our headquarters office.  Whether across the street or across the state, we meet each challenge with the same competitive “can do” enthusiasm, much to our clients’ approval.

Willing and Able to Testify

The state-licensed investigative elements of The Magnus Group are the most educated and experienced members of our staff.  They have testified in court in previous cases with great success.  Their backgrounds stand up to high scrutiny and their credibility is not easily questioned.  We are quite capable of offering testimony under oath to our firsthand observations and experiences, thus reinforcing the results of our investigations to your clients.
