The Organization of Bar Investigators (OBI) was formed to establish a professional organization for investigators and paralegals (or other individuals whose job title is not investigator but perform a similar function) who participate in the regulation of the legal profession. The goals of the OBI are: to provide, promote and participate in education seminars that increases knowledge and efficiency; to present a forum that effectuates the exchange of information and ideas; to gather and disseminate information regarding improved administrative and technical practices; and to provide mutual assistance with gathering evidence, locating and interviewing witnesses and process service outside the investigators and paralegals’ regular jurisdiction.
