A Message from J.J.,

ChiefThis newsletter is our second of the year, documenting more of our successes for our clients. Having the best team of Investigators I’ve ever had working for me, along with our philosophy of “leaving no stone unturned,” helps us continue to have success for our clients in all areas; criminal defense, family law, and the corporate world.

Getting results takes daily effort following all the leads and being thorough in every aspect of the investigation.

Kayla Koenig, our Administrative Assistant for the last 5 years, is leaving our firm to take a job with Montgomery County. Her expertise and ability to handle multiple tasks at the same time will be sorely missed. Everyone on our team wishes Kayla great success in this new opportunity.  As a result of the change, instead of sending documents and case suggestions to you can now send all your pertinent correspondence to admin(at)

Ann Smith will be taking over Kayla’s duties.
