Over the several months of my case, I was referred to Mr. Phillip Stackhouse by a colleague of his. I presented the evidence and facts to Mr. Stackhouse before my trial began. He told me that he would be able to take on my case. I didn’t speak to him as much as I would have liked too, so it worried me that he did not give my case enough attention that I felt it needed at first. We did speak several times, over the phone, regarding my case. He called all defendants and prosecutor witnesses before court, to make sure the stories remained the same. Mr. Stackhouse conducted personal interviews and collected his own research before my trial began. Once he flew in, he kept me updated on his travels and whereabouts until we met for the first time. He was very respectful and knowledgeable about my case. He gave my case the time and dedication that was needed and always kept me informed. He made sure I knew how to act in and outside of the courtroom. Mr. Stackhouse spent the necessary time coaching me and advising me before and after court. If there was additional information to discuss after court, we talked about it during dinner. He never kept me longer than that was needed, but he made sure to speak with me for a decent amount of time. Mr. Stackhouse maintained professionalism inside and outside of the courtroom. He put in perspective for the jury’s satisfaction to understand the facts and information about my case. He put my case in their shoes to see if it was possible for me to be guilty for what I was being accused of. During the course of my trial, he made sure I knew everything he knew. He even took the time to break things down to my understanding and answered all of the questions I had for him. He never once treated me as if I was guilty during the duration of my trial. Throughout court, he didn’t attack the intelligence of the witness’s. He approached every question with common sense questions, facts, and military knowledge. He was well educated on military law and enforced that in the courtroom. He didn’t question my integrity and remained honest with me from the beginning. If Mr. Stackhouse felt things were good or bad, he communicated with me. He respected me from before court, until the trial was over. Mr. Stackhouse represented me in the courtroom, defended my case, and brought up valid points without proof of evidence from the prosecutors. This resulted in a “not guilty” in three charges that were brought up by the Government. Mr. Stackhouse has the upmost respect from me and I am grateful to have had him as an attorney.
(If you ever need to have Mr. Stackhouse as an attorney, it is best for you to remain truthful in the beginning to the end. This helps for curveballs that could be thrown at Mr. Stackhouse or you in court and above all it definitely helps to be found not guilty in your case.)

When my Marine Corps assigned defense attorney was willing to just take whatever the prosecution wanted, I went to Mr. Stackhouse. He looked at the evidence, listened to my needs, consoled me, and counseled me. He was always available to answer questions, day or night. He informed me of the grim truth of my situation, and what he truly believed could be accomplished, given the details of the situation. He was honest, truthful and compelling. I fully believe to this day that Mr. Stackhouse was the Very Best attorney I could have gotten for my case. As a matter of fact, after everything was said and done, the military defense attorney stated that he and his boss were amazed at what Mr. Stackhouse was able to do for me... they thought I would have gotten a lot worse than I did. I was facing 5 - 10 years confinement... I got 25 days.

I engaged Phil Stackhouse to represent a family member in the military. I interviewed several lawyers who were highly recommended to me. I selected Phil because he was not only knowledgeable and legally competent, but he also truly cared about my family member. He went above and beyond any expectation that I had in his professionalism and ability to maneuver in a very sensitive military law environment. He spoke "their" language and they understood him. I would recommend him without reservation and have done so in the past.

We hired Mr Stackhouse after extensive interviewing and research, ie 6 other attorneys. He gave our son outstanding legal defense and has continued followup with us. He won a much better outcome than we expected. He traveled to Afghanistan twice for investigation and trial. His teamwork with the active duty Army lawyer was perfect. In addition, Mr Stackhouse also has taken a personal interest in us and our son. This is an incredibly important part of being a great attorney. This was not just a job, it was personal for him. Mr Stackhouse's continued efforts are leading to complete resolution of our son's last charge. His extra work and diligence are amazing. We cannot say enough good about Phil Stackhouse and can give him our highest recommendation.
