Our Team

Trace Investigations was founded in 1990 in Bloomington, Indiana, by Don C. Johnson, CLI, a former military intelligence analyst, who entered the private investigation business in New York City as a field agent for Burns International Investigation Services, at the time one of the oldest and largest firms in the country. Since its beginning, Trace Investigations has specialized in providing litigation support services for trial attorneys, with a concentration in personal injury and criminal defense cases. In 1997 Don became the first Certified Legal Investigator™ in the state of Indiana and served two terms as National Director of the National Association of Legal Investigators (NALI). Don previously served several years as a board member of the National Council of Investigations and Security Services and is a life member of the International Intelligence Network (Intellenet).

Over the years, our investigative support services expanded. Trace is now called upon to assist in estate and probate matters, complex family law cases, insurance defense investigations, and numerous areas of personal and business concerns. Under Don’s leadership, Trace Investigations has provided legal investigation services for over 30 years.

As the business grew, so did the staffing needs. Trace Investigations employs or contracts with legal investigators, cyber intelligence specialists, and research analysts from around the state. Tina M. Skirvin, CCDI, manages our legal investigations division. A Certified Criminal Defense InvestigatorTM, Tina is a member of the National Defender Investigator Association, NALI, and Intellenet. Thanks to Tina’s understanding of  our clients’ needs, our litigation support services are in good hands, offering the highest degree of “excellence in accuracy and integrity.”

Don and his team at Trace Investigations are gratified that clients keep returning for solutions to their legal concerns and business needs.
