Testimonials

Jesse Dauphinee

Global Head of Training, Citi Security & Investigative Services
"Clear Law Institute recently delivered The Science of Workplace Investigations to our core investigations staff. The training, which was delivered by Michael Johnson, was outstanding. Without exception, Michael has been excellent throughout the entire process and received extremely high ratings from participants on class evaluations. The training content was so popular that our staff requested additional training from the Clear Law Institute, which we are looking forward to diving into after the new year."
