Due Diligence Investigations
James (Jim) K. Ellis is a retired FBI Agent with more than 33 years of complex investigation experience. He is a Certified Fraud Examiner, a Private Investigator, and FINRA Arbitrator.
During his 29-year career as an FBI Agent stationed in Dallas, Texas, Mr. Ellis earned over 20 awards and commendations. He led investigations on hundreds of complex criminal violations including fraud, money laundering, violent crime, homicide and narcotics trafficking. He served for ten years on the FBI’s highly acclaimed Evidence Response Team before retiring from the FBI on December 31, 2015.
After Mr. Ellis retired from the FBI, he immediately went to work as a fraud investigator in the private sector. There, he gained additional experience and knowledge as to how fraud can impact the business community. However, Jim missed not being able to help people directly as he had done in the FBI.
In 2017, Mr. Ellis formed JKE Texas in order to continue serving the people of North Texas. He has established connections throughout Texas and the United States so that he can provide quality investigations for his clients across state lines. Jim Ellis has a passion for investigations, truth, and justice, and strives to deliver all three with integrity, determination, and results.
