Investigators, Consultants, Trainers


The Hawkins Group was established in early 2003 by the then husband and wife team of Mike and Janell Hawkins. They recognized the need for a professional investigations, consulting and training firm to provide services to corporations, attorneys, individuals and other businesses. Utilizing trained and experienced former Federal, State and Local law enforcement officers, the Hawkins Group has the years of legal and investigative experience necessary (see Meet our Staff Section) to provide the highest level of professional investigative, consulting and training services available in the Pacific Northwest. Operating out of our office in the Edmonds, WA area just north of Seattle, we are ideally placed to provide you with the most professional services available.

The Hawkins Group is licensed as a private investigations firm with the State of Washington (License #1361) and maintains its office in Edmonds, WA. Our investigators are former Federal and State law enforcement officers and their experience has given them specialized skills and talents that are necessary to complete investigations in a professional and efficient manner. The Hawkins Group principals have been Federal Agents and have been licensed as private investigators in Georgia and South Carolina. Since our inception in 2004, The Hawkins Group has come to be recognized as one of Washington's premier investigative firms. Over the years we have helped attorneys, businesses, governmental agencies and individuals with their investigative needs.

Having a professional investigative team working on your behalf will save you valuable time, effort and money. In many instances, hiring a private investigator may be the only truly practical solution to your problems. At the conclusion of a Hawkins Group investigation, you will receive a fully detailed report in either hard copy or electronic media depending upon your wishes and needs.
