How did you become a private investigator?
In the early 90’s, I was a Detention Certified Sheriff’s Deputy in both Forsyth and Rockdale counties. I was working in the professional Process Service industry in 1995. During my tenure with a top legal services firm in Atlanta, Robin trained to become a Private Investigator. In 1996, I founded Coleman and Associates, a process serving agency.
What is it that you like about being a private investigator?
The field of private investigations invoked in me an intense passion of helping others. It was then that I thought about establishing my own agency. In 2003, after obtaining my agency license, Coleman and Associates evolved into Martinelli Investigations, Inc.

I found it really interesting that your daughter, Kristi, is one of the youngest private investigators in the world!
That’s true! Kristi and I have been featured on television shows such as The Montel Williams Show, Geraldo, CNN and Gwinnett County Local TV. Kristi has also been featured in the AJC, as well as In Touch Weekly Magazine. Robin’s son, Coleman, is a U.S. Marine, who has served in Afghanistan. The youngest, Kelly, a recent graduate of Grayson High School, also has plans on joining the military. And I’ve been married to my husband Doug for over ten years, and he’s been in law enforcement for over 25 years. I guess that serving our community —and our nation— truly runs in the family.
