President’s Welcome


Eileen Law, PALI President

I am honored to have been chosen as the first female President of the Pennsylvania Association of Licensed Investigators, a phenomenal organization comprised of professional men and women from all walks of life. Our collective purpose is and has been, not only to raise the bar in how investigations are handled, but to police ourselves and make us accountable in the quest for justice. We strive to empower our members to provide a standard of excellence to the people in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and beyond. Further, we promote and maintain the highest ethical practices in our profession.

Our yearly seminars, usually held in the Fall, provide updated training in a myriad of topics from Open Source Intelligence investigations, finding missing persons and biological parents, criminal defense and civil investigations, which data brokers offer the best ‘bang for the buck,’ testifying in court, to the newest surveillance techniques and equipment. We also monitor and get involved with legislation that affects our profession. My favorite thing about membership in PALI (aside from the camaraderie) is our Listserv. When you have a question about virtually any given topic and send it out via e-mail, you will be overwhelmed with the responses you get in just a matter of minutes. Further, marketing yourself and your business is greatly enhanced by virtue of attending these conferences.

We hope that if you are not a member, you will consider joining this amazing group. If you are seeking to find a private detective, you may search this site by name, region or specialty to find the person who will best be suited to your specific needs.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,
Eileen Law, VSM, CMPE
PALI President
