Client Testimonials

"Our former process serving company was slow to respond, slow to make attempts and slow to file. American Process Service and Investigations completely restored our faith in the process service industry. Absolute professionals from start-to-finish. Thank you so much APSI!"
Eddie W.
"My wife and I contacted Barry Gaston, Sr. regarding a long-lost family member that we really needed to find in order to settle an estate issue. We seached for "Jason" for well over a year with no luck. So, we reached-out to Mr. Gaston. He not only found Jason, but made the initial contact at our request. We are thrilled with his investigative skills and highly recommend his services."
Calvin T.
"I took Mr. Gaston's process serving class nearly 10 years ago and have been serving process in Florida's 10th Judicial Cicuit ever since. His knowledge of Chapter 48 of the Florida statues is in-depth and precise. Because of his style-of-education, I passed the class exam with a score of 100%. Mr. Gaston's process serving certification and re-certification classes are the absolute BEST in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties."
