Mr. Jordan was retained to defend our son who was falsely accused of sexual assault by his wife. Mr. Jordan skillfully unraveled her bazaar allegations as there wasn't any proof to support her claims. As a result, Mr. Jordan was successful in a NOT GUILTY verdict for our son. We highly recommend Mr. Jordan for anyone needing legal representation.

I would like to tell you again thank you so much for your dedication, honesty, sincerity and hard work. I know you worked more hours and far harder than any other attorney I could have hired. Without your expertise, knowledge and dedication, I know I would not be in the position I'm in today--for that I'm forever thankful.
I was on terminal leave and recalled back. Was given no reason and told I needed to talk with OSI. After two weeks of my CC lying, I received an email from AFPC saying my retirement was cancelled.
I called Mr. Jordan who immediately told me to me not to speak with anyone. He got the CC's number and called him. The CC lied; said he didn't know anything. He called the prosecution; they lied.
10 months later--still under a no-contact order, the gov preferred charges--Violation of Art 81, Art 132 (2 specifications) and Art 134 (3 specifications). I was looking at 28 years, DD, reduction to E-1 and total forfeitures. Everything I had worked for over 20 years could be gone.
Mr. Jordan suggested we retain USAF ADC to assist in this complex case. To ensure the governments advantage was not unmatched, Mr. Jordan knew just who to call--a friend and colleague he had went to law school with--Capt Robert Crayne.
The Art 32 investigation was a joke. Mr Jordan knew the gov had already made its mind up to go to trial--the Art 32 was a formality. Rather than fight, Mr. Jordan and Capt Crayne used the Art 32 to our advantage, finding out the governments theory and strategy in this case.
From the 32 until trial, Mr. Jordan put in countless hours over weeks unraveling the complexities of the case. Pouring over hundreds of pages of documents, interviewing current and former employees--understanding and exposing contractors corrupt accounting practices--Mr Jordan was able to understand, then decipher exactly what was happening. Mr Jordan and Capt Crayne knew, and were ready to defend their theory on the case.
The prosecution team for my trial was the same team that prosecuted one of my alleged co-conspirators, furthering the governments advantage.
At trial, the gov stacked the deck with LtCol's and Majors making up the majority of the panel. One of the members had knowledge of the case--he was friends with my lying commander. Mr. Jordan exposed this prosecution-friendly panel member.
The gov witnesses were all, conveniently, granted immunity; yet another difficult obstacle to overcome. I'd been isolated from everyone for 461 days, now all these people testifying against me have immunity.
During the trial, he unraveled the prosecution's case exposing their lies while presenting my side of the story.
Ultimately, I was found guilty of obstructing justice and soliciting others to obstruct justice. These charges stemmed from me trying to "make things right". In the eyes of the law, if you try to do the right thing you are guilty of obstructing justice. When all the witnesses have immunity, you're fighting an almost unwinnable battle. I was looking at 10 years, DD, reduction to E-1 and total forfeitures.
At sentencing, the gov asked for 8 months confinement, reduction to E-4 and a BCD. This would leave me with nothing. Mr Jordan and Capt Crayne presented an excellent sentencing package to the panel. The panel returned with a one grade reduction and a LOR. My retirement benefits were saved. In clemency, this sentence could be reduced further.
Joseph Jordan is a great man and one hell of a lawyer--undaunted by the gov's ability to stack the deck against the client. I'm proud to call him a friend. His experience allows him to tell your story and explain the truth to the panel in a manner they will understand.
If you ever have legal trouble within the UCMJ, shut your mouth, say nothing, and call Joseph Jordan
