This article is about the California private investigator, not to be confused with the past President of Rhode Island College.

John J. Nazarian (born 1952), is an American private investigator and security expert with offices in Los Angeles, New York City, and Florida. Nazarian is best known as a celebrity guest commentator on crime- and divorce-related television programming, as well as making appearances in documentaries or docudramas in a reality or fictional setting.

Biography[edit]

Early years[edit]

John James Nazarian was born July 9, 1952, in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. He moved to California at the age of 16. Nazarian graduated from William S. Hart High School in Newhall, California in 1971.

Nazarian entered the U.S. Navy right after high school for four years, leaving the service with an honorable discharge.

Nazarian attended the Los Angeles City College and received an AA degree in Police Science in 1976, after being discharged from the Navy. Nazarian received training during his law enforcement career. He also holds two degrees, one in Administration of Justice, and one in Criminology.

Upon returning from the Navy, Nazarian worked as an apprentice embalmer at several different mortuaries in California. He also worked as a heavy-equipment operator, and owned a lawn-care business.[1]

Law enforcement career[edit]

While still in high school, during his junior year in either 1969 or 1970, Nazarian began his career in law enforcement as a student worker / Sheriff's Explorer under the tutelage of Sgt. Bob Warford and Deputy Arthur E. Pelino, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, of the old Newhall Station.

In late 70’s and early 80’s, Nazarian became a prison guard employed by the California Department of Corrections. He was assigned to the California Institution for Women in Frontera, California, the home to several members of the Manson family, including Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten. Nazarian was one of five people attending the September 9, 1981, marriage of Atkins.

Shortly after leaving the California Department of Corrections in the late 80’s, Nazarian went to work for the San Francisco Sheriff's Department as a deputy sheriff. Nazarian worked for the police department of Mendota, California, where he worked with juveniles.[1]

Nazarian left law enforcement, saying it was because; "All my friends who came on the department with me died of AIDS. It was a big part of the reason I left San Francisco. I lost all my friends when I was in my 30s."[1]

Private investigator[edit]

Nazarian got his start as a private investigator working for the San Francisco Court system working on court-appointed cases at the nominal rate of just $27 an hour. Nazarian opened his first office in San Francisco with the help of Seymour Jaron. Nazarian credits attorney Gary Lieberman of San Francisco, who suggested Nazarian become a private investigator.

It did not take long for Nazarian to figure out the real money was in Beverly Hills. Following the money, John moved his office to Los Angeles. Armand Keosian provided Nazarian with an office with a view of a golf course in his Century City, Los Angeles Suite on the Avenue of the Stars. This was critical to Nazarian’s success in the early days of his practice. Sorrell Trope, sometimes referred to as the "dean of L.A. divorce lawyers," stated he uses only Nazarian due to his reliability and honesty, proclaiming of Nazarian, "he's legitimate."[1]

The basic retainer fee for Nazarian and his team is said to run between $10,000 and $20,000.[2] Nazarian's normal rate is purportedly $400 per hour plus expenses.[2]

She has been granted restraining orders against him since leaving him.[3] Nazarian's client Andrea Thompson, star of NYPD Blue and 24, was involved in another high-profile stalking case.[4] Nazarian was asked to use his San Francisco Police connections to help in the murder case of Gary Murphy[5]

Nazarian was in high demand during the Anthony Pellicano trial because many consider that Nazarian is the only other high-profile P. I. that has become rich and a celebrity in his own right by doing what he does. His insight on the fall from grace of Pellicano; the California Lawyers Magazine felt the case had such significance that the magazine did a full spread on the "Pellicano Affect" and featured Nazarian including a two-page photo spread of Nazarian.[9][10] Nazarian also appeared in the German Magazine Der Spiegel discussing the guilty plea of John McTiernan a client of Pellicano[11] in which he was photographed by Robert Gallagher as part of the six picture slide show which is part of the article.

Since 1997 Nazarian has been sought for articles that addresses the use of private investigators in divorce and other high-profile court cases.[20][21] With one article that dealt exclusively with Nazarian's views in the L. A. Times.[22]

Nazarian has been primary in helping with the investigation of the case of the teen text murder of Mike Yepremyan in North Hollywood California in 2009.[23][24][25][26] Nazarian has continued to work on what is known as the teen text murder through the arrests of the two alleged shooters of Mike Yepremyan in July 2011[27] and the indictments by a L. A. County grand jury in September 2011 of two for the alleged murder and two for conspiracy to committ murder.[28]
