Hope Thomas


I love to know the who, what, when, where and how. To take pieces of information and connect them into a smooth, investigative narrative is amazing work.

Before joining Dinolt Becnel & Wells Investigative Group in 2021, Hope spent over eight years with the Metropolitan Police Department as a patrol officer in the Sixth District and an Investigator in the Seventh District. She went on to conduct background investigations as a federal contractor for the National Background Investigations Bureau through the Office of Personnel Management. She earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and Investigative Sciences from West Virginia University and her Master’s in Legal Studies from Perdue University Global (formerly Kaplan University).

Hope is a licensed private investigator in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
