"I hired Brian after investigating the investigators. I looked at reviews and blogs and found a lot of negative reviews
and comments associated with the others. I liked that Brian was on Angie's list and couldn't find anyone who was
unhappy with his service so I went ahead and hired him for a difficult case. I needed to find my husband to serve
him with divorce papers within 6 days since a court hearing was scheduled and he had to be served 14 days in
advance. My husband was off the grid so to speak, living on someone's boat at a marina in Seattle. He was as
underground as they come. Brian was able to locate him within 2 days. I was shocked at how fast he was able to
find him, but not as shocked as my husband I'm sure. Brian had called and let me know the progress on the case
every day. In my opinion, Brian is a human bloodhound and I am thrilled with his service!"
— Kathleen H., Kirkland, WA

"I hired Brian Blackwell to locate a missing family member and was promptly informed that he would have results
in 72 hours, but instead, it was only 24 hours. Excellent service."
— Gloria M., University Place, WA

From Award Winning Author Elizabeth Roadifer…"In a difficult situation, Brian Blackwell was able to track down

"I hired Mr. Blackwell to do a background investigation. He worked hard on my case, never gave up and always
kept me up-to-date. If you need a private investigator, Brian Blackwell is the one to call."
— Rafael S., Tucson, AZ

"Thank you for the professional, attentive, and pragmatic way in which you handled my case. Your persistence,
ability to overcome obstacles, awareness of privacy issues, and knowledge of the law results in successful work."
— Dianne H., Seattle, WA

"We hired Brian to locate a family member no one had been in touch with for many years and could not locate. It
was very simple to ‘get the ball rolling.’ I paid at his website via PayPal, provided what info we had. Brian emailed
with follow up questions or confirmations as they came up. He located him and provide us with an address and
phone number. Very professional service!"
— Loree J., Seattle, WA

"Our son had run away from home. After days of searching, the police were unable to find him. My wife and I
hired Mr. Blackwell in the hopes of finding our son, which he did. We are so grateful for Brian Blackwell and his
team and their can do attitude, which resulted in bringing our son home."
— Bill E., Tacoma, WA Seattle, WA

About Brian Blackwell

After being the victim of an attempted murder in June of 1993, I decided to devote my life to a career in
investigation and protective services. I studied and apprenticed, taking courses in criminal and civil law, criminal
investigations, legal procedures, evidence analysis and preservation, interviewing techniques, criminal justice,
firearms training, security and defensive tactics.

After being (honorably) discharged from the United States Army in November of 1991, I worked in the mortgage
business. Then the following occurred:

I had driven my car into the parking lot of the office building where the mortgage company was located in Tacoma
on a Wednesday at about 9 p.m., and parked. I got out of my car and began walking toward the door of the office
building when I heard several footsteps coming toward me from behind. I turned around and saw four young males
that appeared to be in their mid-teens approaching me; one leading the way and holding a gun in his right hand. I
knew I did not have time to get back in my car to escape or escape on foot without being shot. It was clear the only
chance I had of surviving was to confront the situation and hope for the best. I took a defensive stance by standing
with one leg forward so as to not be knocked down easily, and quickly calculated my options.

I remember thinking: the best chance I have of surviving is to disarm the gun and wrestle it out of his hand — if he
can’t fire the gun, he can’t kill me. Even though there were four of them, I concentrated on the one with the gun.

The one holding the gun stood in front of me demanding money and it was clear from the look in his eyes that he
had no intention of letting me live. As a diversion, I gave the impression that I was reaching into my front left pants
pocket to retrieve money, which fortunately made him slightly lower the gun and move it to his left away from my
body and gave me the opportunity to control the situation and get the gun away from him. I pushed it further away
from my body using my right hand and began ramming my left index and middle fingers behind the trigger to jam
it and prevent the gun from being able to be fired as I attempted to wrestle the weapon out of his hand.

As a side note, he was able to fire a round before I could get my fingers behind the trigger to jam the gun, but the
bullet did not hit me. (Out of the corner of my right eye, I saw the brass cartridge laying on the ground from the
bullet bouncing off the pavement.)

I continued ramming my fingers behind the trigger. He tried to fire the gun again several times as I was pushing my
fingers behind the trigger and wrestling for control over the weapon. Fortunately, the other three did nothing but
watch. He eventually gave up and released his grip on the gun’s handle and they all ran off down the street.

I pulled my sore, bloody fingers out from behind the trigger — I had cut one finger on a burr that was on the
backside of the trigger. I cleared and secured the gun, and called 911; sheriff’s deputies responded. I turned over
the gun to the deputies and told them what had happened. I could tell by the look on their faces they were amazed
by my actions. One deputy said, “You’re lucky to be alive.” I responded, “Anyone who tries to kill me is going to
have to earn it.”
