Michael J. Clarke
Archangel was founded as a full service private investigation and protection agency that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California but has operations in over thirty-six states with continued expansion. Mr. Clarke has personally been vetted and taken all licensing exams in each of the states that Archangel has protection and investigation operations. Mr. Clarke has personal experience in threat assessments, covert surveillance, executive protection/bodyguard, fraud investigations, skip-tracing, interviews/interrogations and site advances for clients that ranged from celebrities, politicians, executives and corporations.
In Michael’s experience from over 27 years in personal protection and threat assessment he has developed expertise in risk management and mitigation by assessing situations in advance and de-escalating potentially violent encounters when they occur.
Prior to founding Archangel, Michael was a field investigator specializing in subrosa for a Special Investigations Unit in South Central Los Angeles for Travelers Insurance.
Michael has a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice.
As active shooter events have increased, Michael realized that most people can’t afford their own personal protection team so they should learn to protect themselves as much as possible.
