The National Association of Legal Investigators (NALI) was formed in 1967 with its primary focus to conduct investigations related to litigation. Membership in NALI is open to all professional legal investigators who are actively engaged in negligence investigations for the plaintiff and/or criminal defense, and who are employed by investigative firms, law firms or public defender agencies. An applicant must have a minimum of 24 months of documented full-time employment in this endeavor. Membership in NALI currently exceeds 650 professional legal investigators located throughout the United States and in several other countries. The common bond of these legal investigators is the arena of litigation and the ability to work with attorneys to prepare a case for trial.
ION serves those needing investigative services and Local Professional Private Investigators by helping them find each other. ION's Corporate Mission is "IMPROVING INVESTIGATION". Many claims people, attorneys and savvy private investigators who first used ION's Investigators Anywhere referral service in the early 90's still call ION when they need investigative help.
