“I highly recommend Sage Investigations and Ed Martin. Here is why. When our company became the target of an IRS / FBI investigation, Sage Investigations and Ed Martin were there. The professionalism, knowledge and expertise of the Sage staff under these trying times were top notch. Through this challenging process to the closing of our case Ed Martin & Sage staff performance was 110 %. Each move and action was directed towards the end game of closure. The Sage staff that fought on our behalf were all former Sr .Federal Agents who understood the vast complexity of the Federal system and the language they speak. They were able to shine light on the truth and went toe to toe providing us fair, equitable and highly effective representation and closure. Ed Martin and Sage Investigation without a doubt is the premier firm of its type In America. Thank you Ed Martin and the Sage Investigations staff.”
“I had the opportunity to work with and review Ed’s work in a large securities fraud case. The case involved over 600 defrauded investors and total losses of more than $35,000,000. Ed was responsible for analyzing the financial records and investigating the persons responsible for causing the losses. Ed constructed a detailed accounting of all the financial records that enabled us to do an investor by investor analysis of total losses as well as identify investors that received preferential treatment. Additionally, Ed did an excellent job interviewing witnesses, inside and outside the scheme. He is a pleasure to work with in that he always has a positive attitude and you can rely upon him to be very thorough and professional in completing every task that is assigned him.”

“Sage Investigations is a “One Stop Shop” offering everything you need to conduct a financial investigation, expeditiously, efficiently, and accurately. Accordingly, I recommend Ed Martin and his staff to any and all former or retired financial criminal investigators requiring input and analysis of financial records.
When I needed to analyze thousands of bank transactions over 5 years through 11 separate accounts at multiple banks Ed Martin and Jason Slick use their DIO technology to input the records, present the transactions in a Source and Application format; in addition to a format that I placed in an Excel Table where I could query custom sorts and filters. With Sage Investigations’ work product, I was able to “follow the money” and present clear concise findings during trial.
I look forward to my next opportunity to work with Sage Investigations.”

“I have worked closely with Ed Martin, the principal in Sage Investigations, as both a federal prosecutor and civil trial attorney for almost twenty-five years. The investigations he performs are thorough and complete. His reputation for honesty and integrity is above reproach. He is an intelligent, articulate and experienced witness.

“I have known Ed for about 25 years and had the privilege to work closely with him, when I was a federal prosecutor and Ed was a Special Agent with the Internal Revenue Service. During my sixteen-year career as a federal prosecutor, I had the opportunity to work with Special Agents from almost all of the Federal Agencies and throughout many different parts of the country and I can tell you that Ed was one of the best of the very best. His investigations are thorough and complete. His reputation for honesty and integrity is excellent. He is an extremely hard worker and also is a great witness at the time of trial. I would highly recommend him to my fellow attorneys and clients for investigative services.”

“Ed Martin is a financial crimes warrior. A Warrior, fighting against corporate and federal fiduciary injustices within the public and private sector of society.
Wherefore, I’m blessed to have Ed Martin, Chief Fraud Investigator, fighting on my behalf against; federal fiduciaries who refused to rectify their error of transferring a 35-year-old personal 401k account Portfolio to the wrong entities.
I highly recommend Ed Martin, founder of Sage Investigations, when you’re looking at a next to impossible financial crimes fight.”
“Martin was in charge of the massive evidence and witness lists — the natural one for the job, as he had an unusual ability to stay focused on the big picture and yet keep scrupulous track of the smallest detail. This could be seen in his interviews alone — he had to remember what a skittish witness was saying without taking notes, establish rapport, steer the interview where it needed to go, remember what to ask, evaluate the answers and check them mentally against other tiny details, decide what to not ask, time questions effectively, be mindful of the person’s rights and what was legal, take cues from what was happening around him, know what might be evidence and pursue it — and then coordinate all the information from documents and informants with the prosecutor, the FBI, the Dallas detectives, his bosses, and the rules of evidence.”

“After a quarter century as an investigative journalist, I’ve worked with the good, the bad and the very ugly. Without equivocation, I can say that I’ve never come across an investigator who can match Ed Martin’s skills. He’s world class and he can do it all. As his Cajun brethren might say – You ain’t gonna find a better houn’ dawg.”
