Ethical Investigations Conducted With Integrity

Who am i?

Hi, I'm Joel Johnson.  I am a licensed private investigator based in High Point, North Carolina.  I provide a wide range of investigative services to clients across the state.

How did I get here?  I began my career in law enforcement, where I investigated crimes in both urban and rural environments.  One of my greatest motivators was helping victims seek justice for the wrongs done to them.

I eventually left full-time law enforcement and joined the private sector, where I built investigative software for law enforcement agencies.  This software equipped criminal investigators with the modern tools necessary to conduct thorough investigations and solve crimes.

My interest in the private investigations industry developed after I had the privilege to work with a private investigator who I consider a friend and mentor to this day.  While many in the industry operate on legally-questionable grounds, there are investigators who are driven by integrity and adhere to strict ethical standards.  That is also the origin of my motto: Ethical investigations conducted with integrity.

If I can be of assistance to you, please feel free to reach out.  I work closely with attorneys, businesses, individuals and other organizations to help protect people and assets.  Most of us experience a time where we need a professional to obtain evidence in our favor, conduct background checks, locate criminal history information and even provide personal protection or bodyguard services.  Whatever your need may be, let's talk and see how I can help.  

Why should you choose me?


Your investigation will be handled in a discreet manner.


You will be treated with respect and dignity.


You can rely on me to keep my word.


You will receive reasonable and competitive rates.

On Time

You will receive timely communication and results.


Your case will be handled by an experienced professional.

You need the help of an experienced, professional investigator.  Moreover, you should be wary of large investigative firms that focus on volume instead of quality.  The right investigator can often secure evidence, conduct background checks, retrieve criminal records and help you take control over your life.
