I was told of my positive urinalysis and was on the search for the right person for the job. Mr. Baxley exceeded my expectations from the beginning! Right away he told me what needed to be done and his advice was followed with full confidence throughout the whole process. Not only did he give great advice, he predicted everything that was to come between the command and our proceedings. I have not had legal counsel in the past, but his service should be the gold standard in military law. He worked hard and when my day in court came, the verdict was not guilty. If you are considering legal counsel I would not look any further, he is the man for the job. I strongly would advise you to take the next step and talk with Mr. Baxley!

If you are reading this review then I am guessing you are in a similar situation that I was 1 year ago. Looking for an attorney that would fight tooth and nail to secure the best possible outcome for your case. I searched for weeks, I called many attorneys that specialized in Military Law. It only took one phone call with Mr. Baxley to realize he was the right choice.
Still, I fought with the decision of whether it was worth going outside my ADC, I dragged my feet putting down the retainer for Mr. Baxley because of these doubts. But in the end I hired him and I only wish I had done so sooner. After bringing Mr. Baxley on I was immediately impressed on how responsive he was to anything I needed.
Long story short, My wife and I planned for the worst possible outcome, but with Mr. Baxley's help we can throw that plan out. Mr Baxley provided me the best possible outcome for my case. He secured a Pretrial agreement that not only I but my ADC thought impossible. To be honest I still do not know how he did it. But I can tell you he will fight for you, he will do everything in his power to help you, and I will forever be grateful.
So again if you are sitting here reading reviews trying to decide if it's going to be worth it. Let me tell you that he is worth every penny.

I contracted Grover Baxley as my attorney to represent me after I received notification of a positive urinalysis for MDMA (ecstasy). I chose Mr. Baxley over several other attorneys that I spoke with because of his experience and competence in defending positive urinalysis cases.
When he was contracted, Mr. Baxley immediately explained all of the details of the process and what I could expect in the coming months. He was very clear and concise with his advice. I chose to take the case to Court Martial based on his advice and my own aspirations to hopefully one day clear my name of the accusation.
I waited nine months for my Court Martial. Throughout those nine months, Mr. Baxley aided in communicating with the Army JAG attorneys and coordinating what needed to be done before the trial. Mr. Baxley arrived days before the trial, which gave ample time to prepare. I would recommend Mr. Baxley to anyone who wants to challenge a positive urinalysis because of his very strong performance during the Court Martial itself. His ability to adapt to the situation during the Court Martial proved extremely effective. Various factors caused things to change during the Court Martial and tough decisions had to be made, but Mr. Baxley had great advice and strategy that ended up with a positive outcome. Overall, his closing statement was the most effective in my opinion. The closing statement was communicated in such a manner that some members of the panel (I chose an Officer panel, instead of a Judge) were actually nodding their heads during his statement (which was not the case, when the prosecution spoke). His arguments were laid out very clearly and effectively, which is what I believe caused the panel to vote "not guilty." I am very glad that I chose Grover Baxley to represent me in my positive urinalysis case. I can now gladly continue on with my career with peace of mind that this is all behind me.

I had the opportunity to work with Grover over ten years ago when I was a prosecutor in the Navy and Grover was a defense counsel representing servicemembers. Grover is a highly accomplished litigator and aggressive advocate for his clients. Now that I am in private practice, I routinely refer military law cases to Grover as well as any case that comes across my desk involving security clearance concerns. I highly endorse Grover Baxley without reservation and I will continue to refer clients to him in his areas of expertise.
