I was facing serous charges and Mr stockade was very honest with me and believe in me that I was not in any way quilt, we took it to jury trial and he fought for me as if i was his own daughter up there, out come was good and even though I no longer love in NC, and have since married bough a home and have a predictive life , I always think of him from time to time cause if it wasn't for his beliefs in the Justus system and in me as a client, I would be in prison. Thanks you lee

Even though Mr. Stockdale did not take my case, I appreciated him not giving me the run around. After I explained my situation, he told me right away he would not be able to help me. That tells me he is knowledgeable and Trustworthy. I was shocked but truly impressed by that Mr. Stockdale.

I was battling for the removal of a General Officer Memo of Reprimand from early 2008. This GOMOR was filed in my Official Records preventing promotion and prompting a Show-Cause for Retention or Elimination. After 2 failed attempts with Active Duty Legal Counsel assistance appealing through the Department of Army Suitability and Evaluations Board, I decided to interview non-Military Lawyers for a final appeal through the Army Board of Corrections for Military Records. After the initial phone interview I knew he was just the right Lawyer for my purposes. As my last chance for promotion was nearing, Mr. Stockdale assisted me with excellent guidance on how to best argue my case for relief. I was expecting to hear results in 10-12 months, but was elated to discover that within 5 months, the ABCMR granted me FULL RELIEF! I cannot thank Mr. Stockdale enough nor show reserve when recommending him to others. It is with full confidence I recommend Mr. Stockdale to anyone requiring assistance in correcting military records.

Attorney Stockdale was instrumental in advising me how to navigate a tricky legal situation involving a contract with the Army/Army Reserves for a health profession scholarship. He was able to direct my efforts in attaining a conditional release from the Army Individual Ready Reserves in order to pursue an active duty career in another uniformed service. Without Lee's guidance I would not have prevailed in this case. I give Lee my highest endorsement.

I am so thankful that I contacted Attorney Stockdale to handle my case. About 10 years ago I made a decision that was exceptionally detrimental to my military career. I had taken full responsibility for my actions and had worked hard to regain my reputation, but my chances of promotion were very slim. From the onset of my contacting COL. Stockdale, he admitted that we had an uphill battle, but he drafted an outline of â€œattackâ€ which gave me a tremendous sense of confidence that our efforts might be successful. Attorney Stockdale eloquently put into words that despite my error in judgment, I was still a valuable officer who was respected by his subordinates and admired by his peers. He listened to me, reviewed all my files and helped me draft an appeal that overwhelmingly convinced the special promotions review board to promote me without reservation and place all of the proceedings into my restricted file. COL. Stockdale was honest with me about the pitfalls of my case and was knowledgeable and competent enough to provide me everything I needed to win my case. He is truly an outstanding attorney and I was fortunate enough to find him and retain his services. I would recommend him to any of my friends or colleagues who were in need of his services.

COL. Stockdale was the second lawyer I used during my case. After such a bad experience with my first counsel I had a really bad taste in my mouth, but I decided to contact Lee after researching for about a month on the internet. I contacted Lee and he listened without judgment. Once I decided to hire him (which I made after only one call, I trusted him right away) he worked with me every step of the way, it seemed as if we were sitting next to each other, even though we were 1000 miles apart. After he reviewed my case he seemed generally concerned that I was being used as an escape goat and helped me draft a great defense. Which ended in my record being expunged. Lee's knowledge and legal skills are the best that I have ever come across in my 16 years of service. If it was not for Lee believing in me and taking a personal interest in my case I would have been removed from Military service. Thanks to Lee I still have my spotless service record. If you are in the Military and ever find yourself in need of legal counsel you would be a fool to contact anybody else but COL. Lee Stockdale.
