A handpicked team of professionals....

RWS Investigations began as a family owned detective agency in 1997. It's founders are Robert & Donna Stachnik, who are both Licensed Private Detectives. They personally investigate many of the cases and personally oversee every case investigated by RWS. Prior to starting their detective agency Bob enjoyed a 29 year career with the Schaumburg, Illinois Police Department, retiring as a lieutenant in charge of the department's elite Special Investigations Bureau. During the course of his law enforcement career Bob investigated, and supervised the investigation of thousands of crimes ranging from theft, burglary, robbery, and homicide. Mr. Stachnik was awarded numerous awards during the course of his law enforcement career including:  the "Director's Award" (FBI), Medal of Honor (Cook County Sheriff), & the Cook County State's Attorney's Award for Investigative Excellence. In addition to his duties at RWS, Bob also served as an adjunct faculty member for Northwestern University and the North East Multi Regional Training facility (NEMRT). He has taught police investigators and investigative supervisors from the Chicago metropolitan area and throughout the United States advanced investigative techniques for these two institutions.
Donna Stachnik is a co-founder of RWS and she has spent over 10 years as a private investigator specializing in Insurance Defense work. As a Licensed Private Investigator she has interviewed thousands of witnesses obtaining critical information in a wide variety of insurance claims, and obtained countless Recorded Statements that have greatly impacted the outcome of many claims. Donna personally oversees all Insurance Defense work performed at RWS. In addition, she is the primary investigator performing covert corporate intelligence collection for several of our corporate clients.
Both Donna & Bob pride themselves on their knowledge, experience, customer service, and attention to detail. Their business philosophy is a simple, yet powerful one..... "TREAT PEOPLE RIGHT."
