We Represent Private Detectives Before IDFPR
The law firm of Williams & Nickl, LLC represents private detectives. Our attorneys protect your professional licenses before the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR).
Laws Governing Private Detectives
The following links are to the primary statutes and Rules that govern the practice of all private detectives. Although a Rule is promulgated differently than a statute, a Rule, once passed, has the same effect as a statute. It is the law for those licensed professionals to whom it pertains.

- Civil Administrative Code of Illinois (20 ILCS 2105/2105-1, et seq.)
