Hello! My name is Ticia Symonds, and I founded Legal Locator Service in 1996 – Background Screening Excellence, in Lake Oswego, Oregon, where we are still based today. My company serves clients around the country – and the globe.

When I started Legal Locator Service, I was one of the first female licensed private investigators in Oregon. I offered background screening services to employers, because of the potential for fraud during the hiring process. It is easy to create a false résumé and to be charming in an interview! It is essential to verify a candidate’s qualifications, to save the headaches that arise from a “bad hire.”

Without the proper tools, it can be time-consuming and expensive for employers to conduct thorough background searches in-house.

Legal Locator Service offers affordable customized background check packages; we identify what should be verified in any particular position or field. Legal Locator Service soon had a growing business, as we returned accurate FCRA results quickly. Transparency, value, and security are key to our business.

Many of our clients have been with us since we opened in 1996. Besides our expertise, they also appreciate that we provide a personal human touch – when they call, we answer our phones.

It’s been a great 26 years.

In 2021 we strategically partnered with IdentoGo by Idemia and now offer digital fingerprinting. TSA PreCheck, TWIC, Hazmat and more.
