Jeffrey Gailey’s career in investigative services began in 1995, when he joined Gailey Associates, Inc., as an investigator trainee. Since that time, he has worked in and then supervised nearly every practice area in the company. Mr. Gailey first worked in the research department, learning investigative skills in process serving, court research and research analysis tasks. He became a senior research analyst, creating and putting into place state of the art research and skip tracing techniques and resources which are still employed today. Mr. Gailey then successfully passed the State of California test for Private Investigators and gained his Private Investigators License. He began conducting Workers Compensation investigations and received comprehensive training as an AOE/COE investigator. He became an expert in this area, quickly becoming the lead investigator for a number of Workers’ Compensation clients. He has since trained and supervised subordinate investigators in this complicated field. Mr. Gailey was promoted to Senior Investigator in the Operations Division of the firm, and was named to head the Governmental Defense practice area. He currently leads the municipality defense division. In 2007, Mr. Gailey was made a Vice President and shareholder in the firm.
