Thank you Rampart Group


“I just wanted to thank you for the great article on parking lot safety in your latest blog. I forwarded it to my niece, sister-in-law, friends, etc., and encouraged them to pass it on as well. Although my mom wasn’t in law enforcement, you would have thought she was as she “hammered” tips like yours into my brain growing up…probably unwittingly leading me to a career in law enforcement.”

Rampart Group brings security subject matter expertise to every case


“Kathy Leodler at Rampart Group established herself early on with our firm as a respected investigative resource for locating and interviewing witnesses in a personal injury child molestation case. She has also been extremely valuable in conducting investigations prior to filing a variety of plaintiff’s cases—identifying assets and locating hard to find witnesses. She is timely and responsive, always reporting back the results of an assignment or request. Along with her exceptional investigative skills, Kathy also brings security subject matter expertise to every case. She is a seasoned and tenacious investigator with exceptional communication skills. Kathy possesses an intuitiveness that elevates her above the crowd. She is a true believer in equal justice for all, and a professional who remains confident and assured while under pressure. I will continue to refer Kathy to other attorneys who are in need of an investigator with the special skills that Kathy possesses.”

Rampart’s satisfied clients


“I am another happy client of Kathy and Paul Leodler, Rampart Group LLC. They are top notch investigators in all respects. When I contacted them recently with an urgent request to locate and interview about a dozen witnesses, they told me, “No problem, we will get it done” – and they did. They very quickly got up to speed on the issues of concern, located and interviewed the witnesses, and then immediately prepared a report for me that was thorough and incredibly useful. I know they had to fit my request into a schedule already busy with other commitments – but they promised they could handle the load, and they were true to their word. I will definitely call them next time I have any kind of investigative assignment.”

I would refer Rampart Group to any attorney


“I engaged Kathy Leodlers’ services as a private investigator to conduct witness interviews in a complex employment matter. Kathy performed detailed interviews of witnesses in a professional and efficient manner. She also followed up with witnesses who were difficult to track down. Kathy was instrumental in assisting our firm in resolving this situation and provided us with substantial time savings at reasonable rates. I would refer Rampart Group to any attorney who is seeking to save time and add value to case evaluation.”

I LOVE Kathy at Rampart Group!


“She is an invaluable resource for our remanufacturing business, our traveling family, our elderly parents, and, most importantly, our precious grandchildren. Kathy’s professionalism and discretion, along with the depth of her research and preparedness, have helped us on numerous occasions.

Kathy recently spoke at our Soroptimists of Seattle luncheon, sharing advice on personal safety, tips to protect children, and information on gun violence in America. Being a dynamic and engagingly pleasant speaker, she held the attention of our diverse group for an hour. We could have listened for another hour!

If you need to protect yourself, family, and business, tap into Kathy’s extensive knowledge, experience, and networking abilities.”

Rampart’s expert work on several past cases is why we continue to work with this team


“We were looking for a private investigator to assist us with defendant location and assets after he caused serious injuries to our client. This individual was out of state and Kathy’s professional approach provided exactly what we needed. Not only was she “boots on the ground,” her broad investigative review of his environs gave us additional information that even seasoned investigators might miss. Kathy and Paul’s expert work on several past cases is why we continue to work with Rampart Group, and why we have referred this company to colleagues whose feedback, all positive, supports our continued experience.”

We view Rampart Group as a vital business partner


“Our Corporate Security department has been working with Kathy Leodler, Rampart Group, since December 2012. We called on Kathy’s physical security expertise to assist us at one of our Pacific Northwest bio-med locations involved in a build-out construction project. Kathy met our short deadline and requirements for a detailed building security assessment. And, at the same time, delivered superior service at a very reasonable cost. We were sold on Rampart Group early on and now refer to Kathy as our west coast “Virtual Security Director,” a name in which she owns the registered trademark. Rampart Group is now at the top of our list and on-call when we need assistance with security operations and investigation services at a number of our west coast locations. We view Kathy and Paul as a vital business partners in helping us proactively identify risks, limit our liabilities, reduce costs, and safeguard our organization’s productivity and profitability. Not only is Kathy a seasoned investigator who has earned a commendable reputation from her 23 years as an FBI Special Agent, both she and Paul are highly skilled security experts who have helped us create customized security solutions to protect our people, products, properties, information and business reputation. I will continue to recommend Rampart Group, to all my security industry colleagues based on their subject matter expertise and ability to deliver on time—every time.”

Rampart’s reputation is highly regarded


“I met Kathy Leodler, Rampart Group, when she served as the Acting Special Agent in Charge of the San Diego Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as well as the Assistant Special Agent in Charge. I had the opportunity to work with Kathy initially when I was an Assistant Sheriff at the San Diego Sheriff’s Department and continued to work with Kathy in my current assignment as the Chief of Investigations for the San Diego District Attorney’s Office. Kathy has a highly regarded reputation amongst her peers in the San Diego law enforcement community. She has earned this reputation from her years of experience in the FBI and her excellent judgment, problem solving and interpersonal skills. I had the opportunity to work side by side with her in several law enforcement working groups. I watched her first hand work with the other top management levels of all the federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in San Diego County. Her years of experience in varied assignments at the FBI brought a wealth of knowledge and assistance to every issue we addressed. Kathy is an invaluable asset.”
