About Us

Before establishing Patti James Investigations, Patti worked for one of Houston's largest investigative firms.  In 1990, she realized the need for a more ethical, professional approach to providing investigative services. In working to contribute to the advancement and public perception of private investigators she became involved in the Texas Association of Licensed Investigators (TALI).  Her work included serving as TALI Secretary (1993-94), Vice President (1994-95), President (1995-97), and ultimately Chairman of the Board from 1998-99 and again from 2001-02.  She currently serves as School Director, and has held that appointment since 2002.  Throughout the years she has served on numerous committees, including Board Advisory Committee, TCI Committee, and Continuing Education Committee. Patti became a Certified Legal Investigator (CLI) in 1995, and a Texas Certified Investigator (TCI) in 1998.   She has established a cordial working relationship with The Department of Public Safety Private Security Board, and has served on several board committees, including reviewing board rules, and most recently a continuing education research committee.  In 2015, Patti was appointed by Governor Greg Abbot as Chairman of the Private Security Board, for a term of seven years.  Patti is a Certified Mediator and is qualified to conduct court appointed and personal mediations.
