Jim and Tom first started working together in 1983. Both were working for the Portland Police Department. Jim was a detective obtaining information from people he interviewed and others he interrogated. Tom was an evidence technician obtaining information from crime scenes through the application of science and the process of crime scene reconstruction. Later, Jim and Tom worked together in the detective bureau when Tom became a Detective Sergeant.
Over the years, Jim and Tom investigated many crimes to include high profile incidents in the City of Portland. Tom and Jim received many commendations over the years for their investigative work. Eventually they both retired and came to realize that there was a need for private investigators that had their level of experience and expertise and they missed investigative work. Jim and Tom both obtained their private investigator license, their own LLC and are back together again doing what they do best.
