Meet Brian Setree, CEO & Senior Investigator
Hi, my name is Brian Setree. After I retired from a distinguished career in 2012 from law enforcement, I decided it was time to bring the skills and knowledge gained from my previous career to the general public. As such, I’ve assembled an amazing team of investigators that have a burning desire to serve others and uncover the the truth.
Everyone on our team is committed to finding the facts in your case so you can get the justice you deserve or peace of mind that you need to keep your life or business moving in the right direction.
Meet Phil Harris, Private Investigator
I joined Setree Investigations in October 2017 as a private investigator. Previously, I served in law enforcement for 16 years in Miami-Dade County, Florida. For ten of those years I was assigned as a detective in the special investigations unit (primarily VICE and narcotics investigations) as well as in internal affairs. I am certain my expertise and experience will be useful to this team.
I am committed to bringing quality work to all of our clients and will do my due diligence to provide accurate information through comprehensive investigative work.
Clients have been pleased with the results.

Absolutely wonderful people to work with and investigate my case. All the staff members including the private investigators were sympathetic, attentive and thorough while working my case. They were very affordable and considerate when making payment arrangements. I felt like they really were there to help my family and I have resolution quickly which was much appreciated considering the nature of my case. It was money well spent and is highly recommended to anyone looking for honesty and integrity when hiring a private investigative company.
