Former Paralegal Fights Fraud With an Eye on Ethics

Former paralegal and current private investigator Denise Petty is spearheading an effort to regulate her profession. Petty, the current president of the Alaska Investigators Association, set as her goal for this year to get legislation passed requiring private investigators in Alaska to be licensed by the state. Currently, private investigators and detectives need only a business license to work in Alaska.

Petty started her career as a paralegal in private law firms around Fairbanks, Alaska, later becoming a deputy clerk for U.S. District Magistrate Judge Joseph Miller. When Miller ran for public office, Petty decided to start her own private practice.
