Irving and Sam Stein in Los Angeles in 1945
In 1934 Irving J. Stein, while working for an insurance company, began investigating suspicious claims. Soon that was all he did, and the first Stein Investigation Agency was created in the Chicago area. After a three-year interruption during World War II, Irving restarted the agency in Los Angeles with his brother Sam in 1946. The brothers established the agency's reputation for a high quality investigative product and reliable, ethical service. In fact, many consider that Stein set the standard for high-caliber investigation in California.
Sam passed away in 1984 and Irving retired in 2001. The agency
has now joined forces with DMA
Claims Services, a national claims adjusting and administration
company, giving Stein investigators access to resources in
DMA's many branch locations across the United States. Stein
Investigation Agency continues to operate as a distinct entity,
managed by the same personnel who have been serving Stein's
clients for decades.
