Rick Johnson & Associates
Private Investigators

Your corporate client is a victim of kickbacks, internal theft, financial irregularities, theft of trade secrets, contract fraud, misappropriate of company assets, or misuse of company property…

You represent a corporate client facing allegations of bribery, fraud, sexual harassment, professional misconduct, or financial irregularities....

And Time is Critical

Witnesses need to be identified, located, and interviewed.

Documents of all types must be located, obtained, and evaluated.

Background investigations need to be conducted.

Surveillance must be scheduled.


Is there anything in the vitae of the other side’s experts that can be used to challenge credibility?

Is there anything in the background of any other opposing witness that can be used to challenge credibility? What about your own witnesses?

As depositions are completed, what leads do they contain and how do you find and pursue them?

In Your Defense

Rick Johnson, President of Rick Johnson & Associates of Colorado, Inc., is a former investigator for the Denver County and Jefferson County District Attorneys Offices.

In his nine years with these law enforcement agencies, he was a major force in the white-collar crime units, and as an investigator for the grand jury.

In private practice since 1987, Rick has investigated tens of thousands of cases for attorneys, insurance companies, governmental agencies, corporations, and individuals in Colorado and across the nation.

On The Record

Rick was the investigator called upon by the Denver Election’s Commission in 1987 to investigate allegations of kickbacks and election fraud

Rick was the investigator called upon more recently by the Arapahoe Board of County Commissioners to investigate allegations of misconduct by Arapahoe Clerk & Recorder Tracy Baker.

His investigation in 2002 of allegations of fraud by mortgage brokers in Colorado was followed in February, 2004, by a 37-Count Federal indictment.

Rick was the investigator called upon by a major Colorado city to probe the background of candidates for executive police and fire positions.

Four municipalities hired Rick to investigate allegations of police chief misconduct. All resigned.
