All private investigators are created by the lawyers they associate with, simple! Hang out with little league lawyers and you get little league clients. Hang out in the big leagues and you will become known as the go-to guy...I speak from experience!
I was invented by three great lawyers. First, Armand Keosian, Esquire gave me an office in his suite almost 14 years ago. I was new to Los Angeles, but I had been in contact with him for many years, and when I became a P.I., I asked for his assistance in finding an office. He gave me an office on Avenue of the Stars, and it had a great view, too!
I worked with him and his two sons -- Chris is now legal counsel to the Sheriff of LA County and Greg is a Superior Court Judge! Armand has now semi-retired, and I will never be able to thank him enough for his generosity. All of those years he never accepted one penny for rent, and was always there with sound advice (look at his two sons for the quality of his counsel).
He came to my aid 30 years ago when I was in my twenties, and for more than 30 years we have been friends! Armand, thank you so much for all you have done for me, much of my success I owe to you. As we all know an address is important, and you gave me one hell of an address to work from...when you think back I could have ended up in Glendale!
The two other lawyers who have been so important to me are Sorrell Trope and Lisa Helfend Meyer. Sorrell gave me advice on the direction I was going, and it was sage advice at that. Lisa and I met in court when I was working for Doris Duke and Bernard Lafferty, and we have been friends ever since.
So there they are, my invaluable mentors! I and my family owe these people a great deal of gratitude. My being a brilliant Private Investigator also was a great help in this wonderful mix!
