How Many People Are Having Affairs in Dallas?

We hear the stories all the time, this person had an affair, this couple is splitting up because of infidelity. I regularly have people ask me if a lot of this really goes on out there in the world. Some new data came across my desk this week, and I find it interesting because it deals specifically with Dallas and the surrounding suburbs. Apparently, having affairs in Dallas is fairly popular! Have you heard of the website www.AshleyMadison.com? It is a website that is designed specifically for people ALREADY in a relationship who are looking...

Phone Scams and How to Avoid Them

Phone Scams and How to Avoid Them

Phone scams are currently one of the biggest annoyances people face on a daily basis, not to mention a source of a lot of illegal activities. All it takes is one mistake, one slip up on the part of a consumer, and they will take advantage of you. Unfortunately, these scammers still find victims on the phone every day. Let me put this into perspective for you. Has anyone ever walked up to you on the street, or even to your front door, and handed you 100’s or even 1000’s of dollars? No? Me neither. The likelihood of that happening...

We Have Moved to Las Colinas

Moving is always stressful, but we are happy to announce that our offices have moved to Las Colinas. Located in the heart of the Irving, Texas business district, Las Colinas is the home of many Fortune 500 companies, law firms, and businesses of all sizes and types. We are excited about the new opportunities to make new corporate and legal connections, as we continue to expand our private investigator business. We are actually closer to downtown Dallas and the courthouses now, and the central location of Las Colinas gives us access to major...

Self Incrimination & the 5th Amendment: A Private Investigator’s View

Posted by on Apr 15, 2014 in Legal, Litigation Support | Comments Off on Self Incrimination & the 5th Amendment: A Private Investigator’s View

Self Incrimination & the 5th Amendment: A Private Investigator’s View

Self incrimination. The 5th Amendment. We are all very familiar with those terms, or at least we have all heard them. Many people think that when you “plead the 5th” that you do so because you are guilty of something. We have all seen a TV show or movie where the officer reads the bad guy his Miranda warning. But you might not be thinking of the right against self incrimination in the correct way. Read the definitions of incriminate below: 1) Make someone appear guilty of a crime or wrongdoing.  2) Strongly imply the guilt of...

Spring Conference – Texas Association of Licensed Investigators

Spring Conference – Texas Association of Licensed Investigators

Today I am leaving for Houston to attend the 2014 Spring Conference of the Texas Association of Licensed Investigators. While this may not sound like a particularly exciting blog topic, I wanted to share why this is important to all our clients, as well as anyone who is considering hiring a private investigator. Before an individual can open and operate a private investigation business, the State of Texas requires that you must be licensed by the Texas Department of Public Safety. Before a business can be licensed, the business must have a...

Why a Private Investigator Can Be a Lawyer’s Secret Weapon

Why a Private Investigator Can Be a Lawyer’s Secret Weapon

I am always being asked about what my job consists of, and what kind of things I do each day. One of the areas in which our company works is providing litigation support. We work with firms that have several attorneys and paralegals, and we work with attorneys that have single-person practices. While I may be biased, I do believe that we are incredibly useful in both scenarios. Because we are a small, privately owned firm we are able to adjust to the needs of our clients, and we don’t mind tackling a variety of tasks. Let me tell you...

Valentine’s Day

Posted by on Feb 14, 2014 in Holiday Greetings | Comments Off on Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day. I am sometimes surprised how many different meanings this holiday has for people. Children, teens, and adults all can see Valentine’s Day as a way to recognize someone about whom they care. Young children give cards to classmates, while teens will give a gift as a token of interest or affection. Parents might give a present to a child to remind them they love them, while a friend might send a card to just tell someone that they appreciate their friendship. For two people dating, a romantic evening would be the...

February 13 – Mistress Day

February 13 – Mistress Day

Mistress Day. It sure seems like something that should not exist, doesn’t it? But it does, at least unofficially. February 13 is the day that has come to be known as Mistress Day, because that is the day that married men who are cheating try to keep their mistress happy. Apparently, businesses see it every year. The term has even made its way into Urban Dictionary. Husbands know that on February 14th, they had better be making an effort to have a special evening with their wife. For many couples, it has become an expectation, and woe to...

The Drawbacks of Being a Private Investigator

The Drawbacks of Being a Private Investigator

There are many things I like about being a professional private investigator. I like solving mysteries, putting the puzzle pieces together, helping people when they have a real need in their life, the thrill of finding THE answer, meeting new people, working with other professionals, learning new things… the list goes on. However, there are also drawbacks of being a private investigator. One of the biggest problems that just about every private investigator I know encounters is the perception that we can and will do anything to...

Photography and the PI

Photography and the PI

A picture is worth a thousand words. It’s a saying I’ve heard all of my life, and related to for almost as long. As we now find ourselves clearly entrenched in the digital image age, I wonder if the traditional, dedicated camera is on it’s last legs. So exactly what does this mean for photography and the PI? I was a photography buff as a teenager. My first “save up my allowance and odd job money” purchase was a Canon AE-1 SLR. Before that, I used a Kodak Instamatic camera. I had an eye for framing a picture. I...
