The biggest difference between a lawyer, a solicitor, a barrister, and a private investigator is the method of operation, when preparing to deal with your Criminal, Civil, or Family Law, investigation. Investigators get out and about to find evidence, gather versions of events in affidavit or statutory declaration form, record the contributing conditions and look for evidence to support your version of events, or any dangers to your case. They are able to conduct surveillance to establish breaches of duty or obligation, and compile a brief, before the court case commences. 
Private Investigators conduct investigations, they gather the evidence to establish facts, which then permits the legal team to get a witness to commit to a version, before offering evidence that they are an unreliable witness or the reality is different to their stated position.
Hiring a private investigator is an active step towards defending yourself, and gathering the evidence to show a court your innocence; for criminal matters instructions are generally taken through your legal team, to preserve the 'privileged' status of the investigation. For civil matters, where a lower standard of proof is required to either 'prove' or 'disprove' an element instructions are often taken from the client, prior to the commencement of court action. Our surveillance, and factual investigation, is lawfully done, and the evidence obtained can be used in a court, tribunal, or negotiation.
