PRIVATE EYES OF TEXAS
September of 2007 Edition
A Message from J.J.,
Another year has almost flown by. Our diversified client base has kept us very busy on all fronts; criminal defense, insurance defense, plaintiff litigation, family law and the corporate arena.
We routinely get new business from individuals who have been referred by our many satisfied clients. In particular, I would like to thank Randy Schaffer, David Cunningham, Stanley Schneider, Susan Myers, Laura Dale, Colin Amann, Philip Hilder and Lynn Kamin who have referred clients in the last six months. We never forget that our value to our clients is always measured in results.
After eleven years at the same location we moved September 1, 2007 to a larger space which will facilitate the growth we have experienced in the last two years. Our new address is 2611 FM 1960 West, Suite C-100, Houston, Texas 77068-3730. All of our current office telephone numbers and email addresses will remain the same.We were lucky enough to find a stand-alone building with more space that has a superior alarm system which allows us to keep our proprietary information more secure.
If you are ever up this way please stop by and see our new office.
LAW ENFORCEMENT REALITY
The local police, FBI and CIA are trying to prove they are the best at apprehending criminals. A panel of judges released a rabbit into a forest and asked each agency to attempt to catch it in order to determine who actually was the best.
The CIA placed animal informants throughout the forest. They questioned all the plant and mineral witnesses and concluded that rabbits do not exist.After two weeks with no leads, the FBI bombed the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit. They make no apologies; the rabbit had it coming.
The local police go into the forest only to emerge after just two hours, with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling, “Okay, okay, I’m a rabbit, I’m a rabbit”.
KEVIN MONFORT, NEW ADDITION TO STAFF
Kevin brings 16 years of law enforcement experience to our staff. Kevin began his law enforcement career with the Harris County Sherriff’s Office in 1991. Kevin worked in the detention bureau, was a member of the emergency response team, was a patrolman in District IV and was also assigned to the burglary apprehension response squad for three years.
When Kevin was promoted to the detective bureau, he worked in the Vice Unit, the Auto theft Task Force, the Narcotics Unit and was also assigned to the Harris County Organized Crime and Narcotics Task Force.
Kevin has extensive experience in investigating, kinetic interview techniques, undercover operations, surveillance and countermeasures.
During the time Kevin has worked for us, I have found him to be a professional and diligent investigator who conducts very thorough and on-point interviews for our clients.
IDENTITY THEFT PROTECTION
- Print your initials instead of your first name on your checks. If someone takes your checkbook they will not know if you sign your checks with your initials or your first name, but your bank will know how you sign your checks.
- Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, print photo ID required.
- Put your work phone on your checks rather than your home phone. If you have a P.O. Box, use that instead of your home address. If you do not have a P.O. Box use your work address.
- When you are paying credit cards with a check, do not put the complete account number on the memo line, instead just put the last four numbers. The credit card company knows the rest of the account number.
