"I have worked with Luis Bolanos over many years on both "sides" and can attest to his intense preparation, his extreme thoroughness, his absolute intelligence, his ability to think outside the box, his dogged persistence, and his unwavering professionalism. Mr. Bolanos is excellent at what he does, and I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of these types of services."

David Greenberg

Attorney at Law at Law Offices of Rod Soda

Former Chief Deputy Riverside County District Attorneys Office


"As a veteran crime journalist, I've had the privilege of working with law enforcement at all levels and with every imaginable agency. I've worked closely with Luis Bolanos on high profile criminal matters--during his time as a respected homicide detective and more recently as a private investigator. Luis is simply stated, exemplary. His dogged determination to solve difficult cases is unparalleled. I've worked with literally thousands of members of law enforcement over 30 years and Luis stands out among the crowd! He's relentless in his pursuit of justice. But what really strikes me is his dedication to the victims of crime and their families. Luis is so incredibly passionate about bringing closure to those who have been horrifically impacted by the scourge of crime. His desire to help victims is what drives him to be the most diligent, tireless investigator. Luis has left an indelible positive impression upon me and I would most definitely want him on my team."

"Mr. Bolanos is a top notch, detail oriented, investigator. His years in law enforcement coupled with his ability to problem solve make him an asset to any team that needs an investigator. He is a consummate professional who is a pleasure to work with. Mr. Bolanos has worked a variety of cases from pre-filing and throughout various stages of the court process as well as on cases that are not in the "system" and are purely advocacy issues.  No matter what the case or the cause, I highly recommend Luis and his team!"

Robin Sax

"Luis has volunteered his investigative services for the California Innocence Project for the past nine years. In that time, his work has helped us crack open wrongful conviction cases. In one case, Luis' work assisted us in actually proving a client's innocence. After more than 20 years in prison, we walked the client out and secured a factual finding of innocence. In that case, Luis' work also assisted us in not only freeing the innocent client, but locating the true perpetrators who are now pending trial for murder. If you have a case where you need investigative work, I highly recommend Luis for the job. He is professional, respectful, and creative in his investigative approaches."


"Luis approaches his profession with a determined mindset. He has a strong drive to see to it that investigations are thorough, unbiased with all leads exhausted. He partners with Law Enforcement agencies to seek justice for victims in unsolved cases. He also has no problem bringing substandard investigations to the attention of involved law enforcement agencies. In the end, he is determined to seek the truth, solve cases and bring closure to those seeking answers." 

"I was very fortunate to have had Luis with GET BIT Investigations to work on my daughter's death investigation. He and his team had uncovered extremely important details in her case that was missed by two different law enforcement agencies. His genuine empathy and professionalism is a rare commodity in this field. Thank you Luis and GET BIT Investigations for your hard work and I wish you many more successes in assisting other cases/families.


Sincerely, Kelly Osborn (Mother Seeking Justice 4 Sheena.)"

"Mr. Bolaños is the most professional investigator and person I've had the pleasure of working with. I first started working with Mr. Bolaños while I was an investigative reporter at KESQ-TV. He is trustworthy and ethical, two qualities very hard to find. He cares about his clients and puts them first not matter what."

Mike Daniels

"I met Luis A. Bolaños while part of a burgeoning investigative reporting unit at KESQ-TV. He displayed earnest passion for the truth, justice, and an understanding of storytelling unlike any other news source I've encountered. His years of law enforcement provided a unique background for someone who would be interviewed over and over again. Despite any negativity he would encounter, his passion for law enforcement and justice was constant. I have a great respect for Luis and his devotion to "fact" and "truth." Regardless of the very logical nature of his profession, he has heart and an understanding I believe is required to perform well."

"Luis knows law enforcement inside and out, high and low like nobody else. I worked alongside Luis on a series of investigative reports in California, highlighting his direct knowledge of law enforcement tactics and managerial cover ups. He is meticulous in documentation, corroboration and analysis. His efforts resulted in lasting change in Riverside County, California law enforcement management." 


"Luis helped me when I was dealing with a cyberstalker. I tried going through the police department to get it taken care of but they were very unhelpful and incredibly insensitive. Luis and the Get BIT team helped me come up with a plan and told me what to look for when I was dealing with the cyberstalker. Luis listened to everything I had to say, he was easily accessible, and he always called me if there was an update. Because of Luis, I have my life back. I am forever grateful to him and his team. I recommend him to everyone."
