Nothing but eternal gratitude and admiration for Robert Capovilla in the wake of a year-long case against a military son, culminating in a full acquittal. Our son is free, with his life and reputation undiminished, because of Robert. It's hard to know where to turn initially and whether attorneys you may be considering are truly knowledgeable, and will be a relentless and professional advocate on your behalf. Robert is all of that, and much more. This gentleman was always honest about the chances; was always available; evaluated the twists and turns in the case tactically, leading to sound decisions at every key point along the way; and he brought passion, integrity, experience, and total commitment from start to finish. When a military defense counsel joined the case, the two of them worked seamlessly as a one-two punch that was hugely beneficial to the case. Robert was the lead attorney. And particularly in the build-up to the court martial, he correctly assessed several pivotal decision points that turned out spectacularly correct. The emotional wallop of a situation like this is always present month after month, and often times it was only Robert's confidence and knowledge that could alleviate our sense of powerlessness and worry. Never false reassurance or sugarcoating, just knowledge of the law and of the circumstances and variables involved in our particular case, maximizing the strengths and mitigating weaknesses. Seeing him at work during the court martial, with everything riding on it, was stunning. His attention to detail, encyclopedic knowledge of UCMJ code, intellectual agility, and courtroom presentation and demeanor all came together at the point we needed it most--and then prevailed. Family members never doubted our son and brother's innocence at any time, but did not know if a court could be persuaded otherwise. Thanks to Robert, the court sided with us. Could not recommend anyone higher.
