Licensed California private investigator for 20 years, practicing in the San Francisco Bay Area out of Oakland, Alameda County.
Tamara Thompson Investigations meets clients’ information needs, providing civil trial preparation, witness interviews and research on individuals, businesses, products and circumstances affecting clients' cases.
My specialty is developing deep background on individuals and companies related to assets, interests, activity, political and social associations, employment, litigation and business history, reputation and ownership through Internet, database and telephone research.
I conduct genealogical investigations for Quiet title actions and probate and heir matters. I locate witnesses and debtors, uncover assets, identify current employment and research public records.
Tamara provides in-house trainings to law firms, financial service companies, and other businesses and speaks at conferences of professional associations.
Recently I presented at the State Bar of California, the California Association of Licensed Investigators and the Oregon Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, "So You Think You Know Google?" and "Social Networking Sites: Investigating People On The Internet".
My articles, "Due Diligence with Social Networks" and "Cut to the Chase: A Primer for Using Public Records Databases", were published in Law Technology News. The Contra Costa Times profiled Tamara in a front page article titled, Privacy Predicaments Catch Gumshoe’s Eye.
