I would like to take this opportunity to introduce Andy Mazzanti. I’ve known Andy since 1983 where we spent several years working together at the Petaluma Police Department. One of the things I immediately think of when I hear Andy’s name is the word “tenacity.” From the time I supervised him at the patrol level, through supervising him in the narcotics unit, and ultimately having him work with me as a private investigator; I have never seen anyone as talented when it comes to gathering quality information. Andy has an ability to immediately stabilize a situation, make those he is in contact with feel comfortable, and gather quality information, which most investigators sometimes struggle with. I truly believe Andy has a God-given talent to investigate and I don’t say that lightly.

As far as an individual, there are two words that come to mind when I think about Andy; “compassion and integrity.” Andy is one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever worked with and everything he does exudes this part of his character. His integrity is beyond reproach; I’ve watched him conduct investigations, testify in court, counsel people who are having personal problems, and perform training for colleagues. From my standpoint, this is where Andy excels. Andy is well rounded in his life experience and this gives him and ability to empathize with most in a multitude of situations.

I know Andy is embarking on a new territory in the private sector and sometimes that is difficult for us who mainly have our experience in public safety. I would highly recommend Andy for anything he aspires to do because of the character traits he possesses; he will always consider his clients first. In my opinion, you will not find a better individual or professional to work with.
