Our Purpose & Values

Our team

Marc Hurwitz attended SUNY Buffalo for a B.A. degree in Political Science, and The George Washington University for a M.A. degree in National Security Policy.

Marc began government service with Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, and continued in the U.S. Department of State’s Human Rights Bureau. He then worked in the White House for three years, where he served as the aide to the Deputy National Security Advisor. Marc went on to become a counter-terrorism officer for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), and later worked for the government in multiple overseas posts, earning several commendations for meritorious service.

In 2008, Marc opened Crossroads Investigations to sub-contract for retired CIA Chiefs of Stations with corporate due diligence contracts. Crossroads has since expanded into a full-service Private Investigation and Due Diligence firm, named by the Daily Business Review as the top Private Investigation Agency in South Florida.

Marc is a Florida Board Certified Investigator, a National Board Accredited Investigator, and a Certified International Investigator.

Lashelle began her government career as a Financial Analyst for the Federal Reserve Board in Washington, DC. She then moved to Wall Street to serve as an Underwriter for American International Group. She returned to DC to serve in the Central Intelligence Agency as an Intelligence Analyst covering financial crimes and money laundering.
