Member Feature: Palomar Investigative Group

Palomar Investigative Group, Inc. was founded by Gordon Schmidt in 1991 with a mission to offer businesses and insurance companies investigative services related to insurance defense, fraud, embezzlement and employment pre-screening.

The agency is known for its friendly and thorough investigators who operate throughout Southern California. Mr. Schmidt believes in strong communication between his office and field employees. As such, there is very low employee turnover, including a number of employees who have been with the company for over a decade.

Mr. Schmidt underscores the importance of employers taking proactive, preventative measures early-on in the screening and hiring process to avoid potential problems down the road. This includes conducting background and reference checks, drug screening, educational verification, and asking thorough questions during the interview process. All of these practices help employers to illuminate red flags when hiring.

Palomar Investigative Group is committed to giving back to the community.  This takes many forms, including volunteering time and money to the Boys and Girls Clubs and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. To learn more about Palomar Investigative Group, visit
