When my Marine Corps assigned defense attorney was willing to just take whatever the prosecution wanted, I went to Mr. Stackhouse. He looked at the evidence, listened to my needs, consoled me, and counseled me. He was always available to answer questions, day or night. He informed me of the grim truth of my situation, and what he truly believed could be accomplished, given the details of the situation. He was honest, truthful and compelling. I fully believe to this day that Mr. Stackhouse was the Very Best attorney I could have gotten for my case. As a matter of fact, after everything was said and done, the military defense attorney stated that he and his boss were amazed at what Mr. Stackhouse was able to do for me... they thought I would have gotten a lot worse than I did. I was facing 5 - 10 years confinement... I got 25 days.
I engaged Phil Stackhouse to represent a family member in the military. I interviewed several lawyers who were highly recommended to me. I selected Phil because he was not only knowledgeable and legally competent, but he also truly cared about my family member. He went above and beyond any expectation that I had in his professionalism and ability to maneuver in a very sensitive military law environment. He spoke "their" language and they understood him. I would recommend him without reservation and have done so in the past.
We hired Mr Stackhouse after extensive interviewing and research, ie 6 other attorneys. He gave our son outstanding legal defense and has continued followup with us. He won a much better outcome than we expected. He traveled to Afghanistan twice for investigation and trial. His teamwork with the active duty Army lawyer was perfect. In addition, Mr Stackhouse also has taken a personal interest in us and our son. This is an incredibly important part of being a great attorney. This was not just a job, it was personal for him. Mr Stackhouse's continued efforts are leading to complete resolution of our son's last charge. His extra work and diligence are amazing. We cannot say enough good about Phil Stackhouse and can give him our highest recommendation.
