I was referred to Robert through a fortunate connection of a friend of a friend. Knowing his expertise was with federal criminal cases, I took a leap of faith to see if he would be interested in assisting me in a domestic family court matter in New Jersey. Unfortunately, after being dealt the unfortunate hand in my divorce settlement and being ordered to pay alimony to my ex-spouse for the next 10+ years. (Who relocated to another state), I received no child support despite being the primary caregiver and support to our only child.

Robert did not hesitate in agreeing to offer his services to me after hearing my circumstance, and I am still forever grateful to him. His professionalism, no-nonsense attitude, dedication, creative outside-the-box thinking, stuntman-like skills, persistence, and thorough investigation. Not to mention his humor and kind-heartedness), not only helped with my sanity during a highly stressful time in my life. In addition, Robert’s 11-month investigation led me to a court victory, of which the judge deemed sufficient evidence “prima facie” was presented in support of my cohabitation case petitioning for my alimony payment obligations to cease and child support payments commence.

I’ve worked with Robert and GateKeeper Consulting & Investigations for more than three years, and they have handled both personal and business engagements for me. Their work has covered everything from performing extensive background checks on new hires and potential business associates on one end of the spectrum, all the way to the other end of the spectrum by providing surveillance and investigation on an extended engagement. Robert and Team have many years of experience and training that will deliver results each time for the simple and the most complex job assignments. You can’t go wrong with having Robert on your Team! I highly recommend you consider their services.

In a multi-billion-dollar money laundering conspiracy indictment, involving complex transactions, multiple jurisdictions and over twenty defendants and co-conspirators, we required the services of an investigative firm to advise the defense team and engaged Robert Manzanares of Gatekeeper. It was the best possible selection. Robert brought experience, knowledge and relationships that proved invaluable to the defense team. Robert’s personal commitment to ensure his firm delivered value to the defense went above and beyond the engagement.
