Larue & Rogers Investigations is extremely pleased to have  Albert Verbyla as their counterintelligence and computer forensics specialist.

Mr. Verbyla ha been in the electronic communications business since 1965 and was licensed in the counterintelligence service in 1990.  His experience and expertise include the invention of some very advanced devices being used in the counterintelligence field today.  This field is more commonly known as electronic eavesdropping detection or "bug sweeps." 

Mr. Verbyla advises that anyone can be the target of covert eavesdropping.  However, some individuals and businesses are at greater risk because of their occupation, financial position, legal or domestic situation.  He has performed professional sweeps for many high-profile clients over the years and is highly respected in the counterintelligence field.

John Larue and Larry Rogers were long time work associates and friends. They began in 2004 to envision a new private investigation firm. What would make their firm different from some of the others would be a strong work ethic and an firm belief that honest business practices make for satisfied clients. They noticed that during their law enforcement tenure, that many private criminal investigators were not very professional or impressive. They decided to take the extensive knowledge and abilities that both possess, and start a firm that they could both be proud to be associated with.

Clients dealing with John and Larry will find that they have a genuine concern for them and will go the extra mile to make the experience of dealing with a private investigator as pleasurable as possible. Unlike many private investigators, we strive to be responsive and reachable.
