Today I had lunch and a half day meeting with London’s top Private Investigator Paul Hawkes of Research Associates. I don’t mind mentioning his Company Name because we are not in competition.
Having been a Detective Chief Inspector in London, a Principal Crime Investigator with the Civil Aviation Authority and Private Investigator I thought that I knew it all, but talk to someone like Paul, who has been a Private Investigator for 36 years you can quickly see a true professional at work, sharp, smart, gets to the point immediately, competent yet despite his superior knowledge he is modest and extremely helpful. I am proud to call him a friend and am trying to emulate him.
It was nice being back in the Notting Hill area, I miss London but will soon be working down that way a lot on surveillance, tracing people, fraud investigation, process serving, and lie detector work. My life is mapped out for a few weeks keeping clients happy and linking up with Paul as often as we can.
Be careful out there.
