I hired Pete to represent me during a Board of Inquiry in which I was required to “show cause” for staying in the Navy. The results speak for themselves – Thanks to Mr. Kageleiry’s advocacy I was exonerated of the allegations against me. Pete was well prepared and he did a great job convincing the board that I had not committed any misconduct. I was previously taken to Captains Mast for Assault (Article 128), Conduct Unbecoming an Officer (Article 133) and Drunk and Disorderly Conduct (Article 134). Pete correctly anticipated the issues in my case and was able to use his military experience as well his understanding of the legal issues to convince the board that I should be allowed to continue my military career. I highly recommend Mr. Kageliery for anyone stuck in a similar situation.

Mr. Kageleiry represented me at my court martial. From the very beginning of a year long ordeal, Pete was on my side aggressively fighting for me. I was accused of killing another person, but Pete proved to the jury that I acted in self-defense. Pete was prepared for every part of the case and he knew how to take over the court room, especially when he confronted the prosecution's witnesses. Thanks to him, I was able to prove my innocence. The very next week I was promoted and since then I have gone on with my military career. Thanks to Mr. Kageleiry I am still having a great life."

LTC (Ret) Peter Kageleiry is an outstanding lawyer and a true patriot. I must say that he did an outstanding job defending me at my Army court martial trial. This was a very critical time in my military career . It was also very stressful for my family . Pete fought for me every step of the way and always kept a positive attitude no matter the obstacles he encountered. The prosecution came at us with two pages of charges and Pete never wavered but attacked the governments case one witness at a time until it fell apart.
After Several months of investigation and a week long trial, I was exonerated. I continued my military career and retired with and honorable discharge

Pete is an outstanding military defense lawyer. I have worked with and against him on numerous cases since 2003, including several high profile court martial cases. He is a bulldog in and out of court when it comes to fighting for his clients.

I endorse Pete. I have known him for over 12 years. He is a highly skilled and aggressive criminal defense lawyer. He has the trial experience and confidence that allows him to take difficult cases to trial and win.
