I am proud to say I served our country in the United States Marine Corps and was honorably discharged in 1969. I also received medals for Valor and Bravery in the line of duty and for outstanding detective of year at the Metro Nashville Police Department. As a result of my numerous years of law enforcement service I have developed relationships with hundreds of other law enforcement agencies both domestically and internationally.

Our company is fully insured and has licenses in all of the services we provide and fields we work in. I am personally qualified in 3 different Tennessee Criminal Courts as an expert on Crime Scenes and Homicide Investigations.
