We invite you to review some of the comments we have received from clients, attorneys, and other individuals about the legal services that our Military Attorneys provide. These comments are reproduced verbatim and represent the personal opinions of the individual writers.
Mr. Baxley was the most attentive of all the lawyers I called, right from the beginning. You can tell that he has a lot of experience and is calm and cool just by speaking with him. I didn't realize how important that would be until after my case was over.
The results for my case were fantastic (retained in the military with a finding of no misconduct at an Admin Separation Board). These results were LARGELY due to Mr. Baxley's expertise.
I would highly recommend him to anyone facing disciplinary action and I would call him first in the future, (although I hope I never have to).
When I was told that I had tested positive for THC by my Commander I saw my career flash before my eyes. I immediately started searching for a lawyer. I talked to at least 7 lawyers that specialized in Positive Urinalysis'. But when I talked to Mr Baxley he walked me thru the entire process of defending myself, he explained to me my rights as United States Soldier, he told me not to make any statements. And from that very second I knew that I had found a right lawyer. Mr. Baxley is a well educated lawyer who is very knowledgeable about the military urinalysis program. When it was time for my Court Martial Trial Mr Baxley was very impressive, he absolutely demolished the Government Prosecutor with relatively ease! For anyone that is looking for the best Defensive Lawyer in the business of saving Soldiers Careers, Mr. Baxley is no brainer! I would recommend him to anybody! He is money well spent! Thank you Mr Baxley!
First off I'd like to say thank you to Grover Baxley. I tested positive on a urinalysis. When I first read all these testimonials I couldn't believe them. Now I know for a fact that Mr. Baxley is simply that good. His confidence and experience shows from the moment you first talk to him to the moment you both walk in the court room. Mr. Baxley steps into the courtroom fully prepared and knows exactly what to say and when to say it. He's able to make judgment calls and able to think quickly on his feet when the opposing counsel would do or say anything he quickly asserts his dominance and shuts them down almost instantly. He's completely honest with you and will give you the confidence to put your mind at ease when my command was trying to scare me into making the decisions that would benefit them not me Mr. Baxley was there. Mr. Baxley will walk with you from step one to the day you leave your court room victorious. He won't make any promises but I can assure you from my personal experience he won't let you down. If your asking yourself who should I hire then stop here. I can't thank him enough, he's worth every penny. Because of him I can continue my career, he demolished the opposing counsel and clearly was more knowledgable in the matters of military law then they were. I knew they were surprised by how much he knew I saw the look on their face and it was priceless. I knew I made the right choice and I'm glad I did, he kept intact my integrity and we stuck with the truth. Even when he's working other cases he still is available to speak to you over
the phone and email no matter what state he's in. Mr. Baxley is extremely talented and I would like to say thanks again. Look no further cause he is as good as it gets. I can't say enough about him. My family thanks you also. Godspeed Mr. Baxley
Grover Baxley is a true professional, and is beyond reproach. I was falsely accused of multiple counts of misconduct that could have been punished by prison and a less than honorable discharge. The government bull dozed their way through my career, cancelled my orders, issued an adverse FITREP, and threatened me with court martial. In the face of this pressure, Mr. Baxley took me under his wing and guided me through the military justice system. From the moment Mr. Baxley took my case his advice was not just clear, but frankly clever. He had a deep understanding of flaws in the military justice system and the seemingly insurmountable odds against me as a service member after the government decided I was guilty. He subverted government attempts at every turn to degrade me and stamp me out. I faced the threat of court martial and then NJP, but in the end Mr. Baxley managed to steer the Navy towards the most advantageous venue to clear my name in my particular case, and I was exonerated on all counts. As a military reserve JAG and civilian defense counsel, he is unquestionably at the head of his class. He is a trial lawyer with winning instincts, and watching him in the courtroom is like watching David slay Goliath. I trusted him with my life, and he stood with me until I could lift my head again in freedom. Mr. Baxley will never promise you will win, but he will offer sober, clever, sound advice. He will treat you with dignity and respect at every turn, and he is a genuinely likable guy. He basically has it all, the total package of knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to perform your legal function in order to achieve the absolute best possible outcome in your particular case. When your life is on the line, and it seems like there isn't much hope, you want Grover in your corner. NOTE: He is busy, and that means you have to be patient as your case develops. On several occasions I wanted to get a hold of him, but he was in a trial. He got back to me as soon as he could, but if you choose to hire him, keep in mind he is like a magnet. People are turning to him left and right to save their careers or lives, and he has to prioritize his time so those closest to trial get his full and undivided attention. When it's your day in the courtroom, you will appreciate having 100% of his attention. NOTE: He has a flat rate payment policy, which seems like a significant amount of money. He is worth every penny I paid, because he saved my career and kept me from being permanently labeled with a less than honorable discharge. Furthermore, I had a peace of mind with the flat rate, since I wasn't being individually charged by the minute every time I called him or wanted to meet to discuss my case.
Ever since I popped hot on a unit urinalysis for thc I was certain that my military career was over. At the time of this case in early 2015 I was a SPC in the United States Army, and was given an article 15 that would have certainly ended my career (my unit had even started my separation packet). Concerned for my future I searched the internet for advice on my case, and I found the services of Jag Defense legal services and more specially Mr. Baxley. From the first time I spoke with him on the phone, I knew that Mr. Baxley had expertise on these matters. He explained to me exactly what my options were and what the government was going to try to do every step of the way. I decided at JAG to decline my article 15 despite my JAG "counsel" telling me that it was unwise to do so, because "the army always wins". During the several months waiting for my court date, Mr. Baxley explained to me how we were going to handle the case. He kept me informed and responded to any of my questions in a timely manner. At one point, Mr. Baxley had business to attend to in Italy, but I was still able to keep correspondence with him, and he made himself available to me in a timely manner. When my day at court finally came, Mr. Baxley explained the whole process to me and prepped me for my testimony if I needed to take the stand. When it came to jury selection, we were able to excuse 3 of the 7 jury members from the panel that may of been unfavorable to my case. From the opening arguments it was obvious that the prosecution was outclassed by Mr. Baxley. As they called up their witnesses, Mr. Baxley would expertly extract information from them that put me in a favorable light to the jury. By the time the prosecution had rested their case, it became apparent that I should not even testify, although if I had to I would of been ready thanks to Mr. Baxley. Throughout the case, Mr. Baxley was able to object to many of the prosecutions motions and questions and was successful more times than not. His ability to cite case law and his knowledge of military law was quite impressive to the whole court room. On the other hand, when the prosecution made motions against our defense, Mr. Baxley was able to explain to the judge why the motion had no grounds. Almost always the judge would overrule the prosecution, often times right in front of the jury! At the end of the case, the jury took only 20 minutes to deliberate, and came back with a verdict of not guilty. I will be forever thankful to the services that Mr. Baxley provided for my defense, and would recommend him to anyone that asks. I know that being taken to court martial is one of the most stressful situations that one may ever face. Do not trust your JAG counsel to have your best interest in heart. If I would have went with them, I would be out of the military. I would recommend that you at least give Mr. Baxley a call.
We contacted Grover Baxley regarding UCMJ charges filed in a remote overseas hardship zone, and his response was immediate and comprehensive. He gathered information from all concerned, provided timely advice and assistance, helped with statements and kept us informed every step of the way. His thorough analysis of every aspect of the initial charges and subsequent administrative proceedings enabled him to address every possible point of contention or support in our case. His thorough preparation, coupled with his presentation and questioning of witnesses at the administrative hearing, led to the best possible outcome in our case: retention in the service. Mr. Baxley was, through it all, responsive, communicative, easy to talk to and very supportive. We highly recommend him for any type of military-related legal case.
Dear Mr. Baxley,
I can’t thank you enough for all you did for ******* and the way you represented him at the BOI, achieving the best result possible! Sounds like it was not an easy day; ******* said it could have gone south fast if you hadn’t been there. It’s a great relief for all of us to know this process is over, with a positive ending.
Again, many, many thanks for your help! I picked your name out of all those listed on the web, from my hotel room in Key West, with my wife, on that dismal night in March, after evaluating the backgrounds of the attorneys listed for this type of thing, and it absolutely did turn out to be the best possible choice!
My nightmare began two years ago when a disgruntled subordinate sailor filed extensive misconduct and harassment charges against me. With the very real threat of losing everything I had worked for in the past 19-years (only one year away from retirement), I did a lot of research and retained Grover Baxley. Over the next two years, my case moved at a snails pace and Grover kept reminding me to stay calm and keep focused on the end game. When the day for my Show Cause board finally arrived, I was petrified. From the very beginning of the 2-day proceedings, it was clearly evident to everyone that Grover Baxley was the only seasoned pro in the room. While the inexperienced government lawyers fumbled through pre-written scripts, Grover Baxley recited everything from memory and experience. In the first 20-minutes, he was able to have several damaging exhibits removed from consideration which greatly reduced the overall charges against me. The government lawyers were stunned and simply had no answer to his well formed objections. During the questioning of witnesses, the government planned to produce five people. After Grover eviscerated the first two of the government's witnesses, the government lawyer was so scared that she cancelled the final three witnesses (who could have potentially been very damaging to my case). Everything that happened in the board was because he wanted it to. In the end, I was retained on active duty and will be able to retire honorably with full benefits in a year. When I was searching for attorney's, I read many of his reviews and thought, "can he really be this good?" The answer is unequivocally YES! If you have a life time of commitment to the military and you are in danger losing it all, you can't afford not to have Grover Baxley on your side. It's insanity to attempt to fight the government alone or with an inexperienced government appointed attorney. HIs fees are a drop in the bucket compared to losing $1.3M in retirement benefits and being branded with a general discharge. I can't say it any better than to simply say that he saved my life.
In May 2014 I was required to appear before an Administrative Show Cause Board of Inquiry. I had been falsely accused of several Uniform Code of Military Justice violations. I chose Mr. Baxley as my civilian counsel and could not have been any happier. Prior to the board, he kept me informed of the process and ensured that I was thoroughly prepared. During the Board itself, he painted a clear picture for the members to see how the allegations against me were false and unfounded. He corrected the prosecuting JAG attorneys further showing his mastery of the proceedings. His closing arguments were like something out of movie - hard hitting and direct. I was fortunate that the findings of the board were as positive as possible - No Misconduct of any kind. Even if the outcome had not been favorable, I would have been completely satisfied with Mr. Baxley's performance. No one could have done a better job.
Attorney Price handled my case. From the beginning of my clearance process she showed the highest level of professionalism, guided me every step of the way, and displayed the patience of a saint until I was able to win my case. She is a wonderful human being and understands that people have different backgrounds and their experiences come from all walks of life. Attorney Price is an immense asset and without her I would not have been able to win my case. In the future I intend to use the services of JAG Defense again to ensure that I receive the best possible outcome. I recommend that all of you ask for Attorney Price - you will do well!
I've been meaning to do this, but I would like to give my endorsement to you & JAG Defense. Your help was instrumental in my continued service in the Air Force. Now, I can retire and finally have some peace, knowing I kept my promise to my dad.
Tell your customers who are debating hiring you because of the expense that they can't afford not to hire you. If their military careers are that important to them they need to do whatever they can, figure it out, talk to family, get a loan, jump through hoops, just do whatever they can to have you represent them. It was the best money I've ever spent & the investment will pay back a hundred fold. Tell your clients that it's an investment to their careers & life after the military.
Anyway, sorry this took so long, but wanted to say thanks again. Looking back, it was pretty awesome seeing you at work. Your closing statement was a thing of beauty.
I believe I was very lucky in retaining Mr. Baxley for my case. My case was odd in that it went on for four years because of delays. During this time Mr.Baxley would keep in touch with me whenever anything came up, he also promptly replied to my phone calls and emails, you do not know how important this is till you are panicking on a Sunday afternoon and he replies back to your crazy email and calms you down. I retained both Mr. Baxley and a Navy appointed JAG officer, the JAG was good, Mr. Baxley was better.
He did a great job of finding out the particulars of my case and making sure that every T was crossed and every I was dotted. In my opinion Mr. Baxley is second to none in both taking care of his client and in taking care of the case. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a lawyer for a military trial.
Two years ago, in the midst of high-profile Air Force sexual assaults, I needed a military defense lawyer because a junior officer whom I'd dated was threatening to falsely extort me for rape if I didn't help her get a preferred assignment. She had approached me and wanted me to produce results immediately. I quickly interviewed three lawyers and it was very clear from the start that Mr. Baxley had the experience and expertise necessary to guide me through the convoluted military legal system. Within hours, Mr. Baxley formed a sound legal strategy to guide us through the political and legal battle to come. I reported this individual for her extortion attempt but unfortunately the Air Force came after me for sexual assault. Over the next 1.5 years Mr. Baxley represented and helped me prepare for everything to come; OSI interviews, Article 32 court proceedings, and my conduct at work. All of which proved to be instrumental to the final result. During the Article 32 proceedings, Mr. Baxley was able to pinpoint key irregularities in my accuser's statements that greatly discredited her claims of a sexual assault. He was also able to bring out vital information from key witnesses to further question my accuser's claims. Mr. Baxley's remarkable handling of my case before and after the Article 32 led to a negotiation with a 4-star general that resulted in the charges being withdrawn and dismissed with prejudice. I could not have received a better defense than the one presented by Mr. Baxley. Mr. Baxley knew the military legal system and understood the political environment surrounding this issue. He was a flawless litigator and also perfectly navigated behind the scenes to get the best possible result. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Baxley when choosing a military defense lawyer. You will not find a better lawyer who will work harder for you.
On June 2013 I was informed by NCIS that I was under investigation for an Article 120 of the UCMJ. I contacted Mr. Baxley days later because I was looking for a civilian/Military Law defense representation. Beginning with the first time I spoke with Mr. Baxley on the phone, and I spoke with several lawyers prior to him, I noticed the professionalism and colossal amount of knowledge he had possessed. He was very engaged in my predicament and gave me several recommendations. My article 32 came on October 2013, of course I was assigned an Active Military Officer Lawyer, (a fairly new JAG Officer from what I perceived), I decided to proceed to the Article 32 with only the representation of the JAG assigned to me by the military. I called Mr. Baxley after I found out I was going to a Court Martial, fairly late I will admit. Mr. Baxley took immediate action and contacted the JAG assigned to my case, taking full charge of the situation. Mr. Baxley's knowledge and persistence towards my case resulted in the drop, and dismiss, of all charges 4 days prior to the scheduled Court Martial. Mr. Baxley is an outstanding Military Lawyer, very professional, and extremely intelligent on military law. He kept me informed of any changes and any decisions that he made. Mr. Baxley displayed much empathy when dealing with my case, and his profound intellect on the situation resulted in the drop and dismiss of the entire case. The only thing I regret is not getting his representation the first day I was charged with the Article 120 and waited until after the Article 32. If you are in the same situation I was in and is looking for a defense about a UCMJ or any other legal issue, don't look any further. Get Mr. Baxley on your side to defend your rights and innocence and you will not regret it. Mr. Baxley will make sure your side is heard and you get the best outcome of your case. I am extremely thankful that Mr. Baxley was on my side.
Back in December (now April), I was charged under the UCMJ for a positive urinalysis case. Immediately, I was called to investigation by my commands CID. When they questioned me, I informed them that I would not speak and that I wanted a lawyer. Being that I had never contacted a lawyer in the past, I had no clue where to go from there. I was looking online on the best military defense lawyers as well as asking around, when I came across Grover Baxley through a recommendation of a fellow service member. To say the least, he was the most qualified to handle my case. Over the course of the months, I was placed on hold for orders, treated no better than a criminal and told over and over that my life would no longer be the same. Throughout the case, I maintained my innocence and finally came the day of my administrative separation board. The government (as Mr. Baxley called my command) had no evidence other than the single charge they initially came up with. Every time the prosecution would attempt to persuade the board members via misinformation, Mr. Baxley was diligent in shutting them down and removing any supposed evidence they had obtained. When it came to the forensic toxicologist, he managed to get the toxicologist to concur that the government had absolutely nothing but a single test result. As a result, the board members saw the truth in the matter. Although my command continually attempted to base all findings on a preponderance of evidence, in the end they had none. Their evidence couldn’t even support a preponderance of such. Closing arguments showed that not only had I chosen the best representation a Armed Forces Member could find, but I had essentially gained relief in the fact that I was going to win my case after the most intense four months of my life. The final vote by the board members was 3-0 no misconduct and to be retained by my service. If you are searching for someone who not only represents you to the best of their ability but guides you through every step of the way than do not, and I repeat DO NOT look any further than Mr. Baxley. He will do everything in his ability to get you the absolute best outcome imaginable. In the end, the money you spend on his service will be nothing compared to what you make in your military career/contract.
We want to take a moment and say thank you for all you have done for our son. If it wasn't for you and your expertise, our son may have been let go by the Navy. We are just a middle class family who happen to love and trust each other, that is why we chose to hire you for this case and you proved us right. With this being said we also know our son has grown from this situation and appreciates you also. May you always be blessed with what is good in life.
Please read the [decision memorandum] from the Major General. I just want to personnaly [sic] thank you for all of your support and legal counsel throughout this process. I am so relieved that this process has come to a close and that I will be able to continue my military career. Sir thank you again and your legal team.
YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME SIR!!!
I hired Mr. Baxley for a urinalysis case. I am in the National Guard and had to prove my innocence at a board hearing in order to remain in the Army. He was extremely knowledgeable and did all the right things in order to convince the board of my innocence. I believe that if I had used the lawyer appointed to me by the Army I would have lost the case. I would hire him again without question.
9 months ago was the start of a scary & Long journey for my family. My son, a marine of 8 years, respected & honored by his command had been thrown into solitary confinement for 37 days after being accused of sexual assault.
We were alone in our struggle to contact his place of confinement & find out any news. It wasn't until I found Mr. Baxley who immediately was able to SEE my son. He assured me while my son was not happy, he was safe & we would fight for his freedom.
He made sure first he was moved out of [solitary] confinement, Thank God. Then he worked to make sure my son's side was told & proven. Mr. Baxley never promised anything he could not get. Mr. Baxley was kind, well informative & very knowledgeable in military law. I knew when the Jag attorney told me he was honored to work with him and had sat in lectures Mr. Baxley had taught, I had made the right decision in hiring him. We were looking at up to 10 years if convicted for all charges. Mr. Baxley fought for & obtained a Pre-Trial Agreement. Which got my son time served & a Bad Conduct Discharge with no pay or allowance forfeitures! Most importantly, he can freely be involved in his children's lives because he was proven innocent on several made up or over-exaggerated [sexual assault charges]. Thank you for saving my son's life & giving him back to us but most of all to his two kids!
I truly believe if not for Mr. Baxley's expertise and knowledge of how military law works, my son would still be sitting in the brig 12 hours away from home.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I wanted to take a little time to thank you sincerely for everything you have done regarding my case. I know it is your profession, and I paid for your representation, but I am truly grateful that you stood by my side through all of this. A lot of people lost faith in me, and disassociated themselves from me because of these charges and the adjudicative process. As a combat vet with a lot of deployments it is great to have a battle buddy at your side, someone who is looking out for you, someone you can count on. That is how I view you, I always looked at this case from that mentality and I am grateful that you were there for me.
My situation was unique; this case was unique, especially with the amount of time that it took. Not sure how many soldiers go into a Special Court Martial and walk out with their rank and in my opinion a minimal punishment. I know that I did, and your advice and efforts got me in the position to reach that outcome. In all honesty, the results of that Special Court Martial were beyond the best possible outcome. My wife and I are still wondering how we got through this with that result.
In my opinion, not enough people in America appreciate the justice system, and defense attorneys. You represent the unwanted, the lonely, the individuals that are outcasts, and you do it with humility and without judgment. You serve a very noble cause that affects the lives of hundreds of soldiers, possibly thousands, and you do it successfully with everything. I truly appreciate you and I am thankful that you had my best interests at heart.
Moreover, because of you I have the possibility to resurrect what is left of my career. My family thanks you, and from the bottom of my heart, I thank you.
You can bet that if I cross someone who is in legal trouble, I will without a doubt send them your way, and trust that they will be taken care of!
Thank you again for your professionalism, promptness, organization, and commitment to my case. I sincerely believe that I could not have had better representation and am entirely comfortable with your efforts. Regardless of the outcome, I would recommend your services to anyone with such a need. Your personal character was also appreciated.
I’m emailing you all a quick note about my Physical Evaluation Board for military medical retirement:
I just got a call from the PEB Liaison at the hospital and he told me my findings were in: 60% disability with Temporary Retirement. This means...
The finding I was given was what my attorney, David Price, and I felt would be the best possible outcome...
I’ll talk with everyone later in the week when I have time. Thank you ALL for your wonderful letters of support & praise to the PEB board. I cannot thank you enough. And, David, you were amazing in your representation, and there is no doubt in my mind that the board’s decision is due to your efforts.
I want to send you all my most sincere thanks and tell you I will be your biggest advocate with my collegues in any and all legal matters.
It is very rare to find a person or a firm that treats you like a human being instead of like a "Client". Mr Price gave me excellent advice about how to handle the situation (including to just relax and calm down!) and really set my mind at ease.
I cannot thank you enough for the work you do for service members and wish you well in the future.
Comment from a Referring Attorney:
After we spoke I called [the client], and he is the happiest I have heard him in 10 months. It’s been a long, difficult road for him. Now, he can put all of it behind him.
I told [the client], that if anyone could get his clearance back, it was you. And, you proved me right! Congratulations on a job well done.
I would just like to thank Grover Baxley for the excellent work he put forth in my case. He and his staff constantly gave me updates on the case which kept my mind at ease. The representation I was given was so professional and wise that it made the prosecution look like the circus was in town. The case was over quick and the verdict was pretty easy to predict since Grover laid out the evidence Johnny Cochran style. I would refer any person in the Armed Forces who comes under any kind of serious allegations to call Grover Baxley and give yourself the peace of mind and stress relief you deserve. After all, it's only your career and future at stake.
I worked in that field for almost three years. I volunteered endlessly and always received the highest scores from my annual evaluations. I loved my squadron and it was the first time I felt I was really in the military. I had decided to make a career of it. When someone made an anonymous allegation against me and I was facing a court martial, jail time, and the embarrassment of my reputation being rinsed down the drain, I saw very quickly how fast the people I felt so close to could turn on me. My command made it seem as if I had never been a part of them, as if the person they had gained so much from never existed. I was never given the benefit of the doubt, and immediately I was pushed away without anyone to talk to or help me. My command placed no faith in my innocence and I knew at that point that I needed help to salvage my life and career.
After I retained Grover Baxley to help me with my situation, he worked endlessly to ensure I would be able to walk away proudly and with minimal impact on the rest of my life. Through his efforts, I was able to avoid a court-martial entirely and we secured an administrative separation with a favorable characterization of my service. I was able to keep all of my veteran's benefits and get out proudly, the way I served! Thank you Grover!
I would have never thought that I would be faced with such an experience, especially not as a Senior Enlisted member and being a member that has always been 'by the book' with a stellar, spotless record and military career. Grover is highly professional and protects his clients in every area. He truly has your best interest at heart! He is very respectful and very down to earth. Most importantly, you get the honest truth from Grover that is backed by years of knowledge, experience and expertise that the JAG community could never even come close to. Grover is up front and is not afraid to confront anyone in the military, even Admirals, when it comes to your case. Grover is with you and stays with you throughout the entire situation from the onset. Additionally, just because your situation at your command is finished does not mean that Grover's work is done. He follows up to ensure that you are in the clear in all respects, that all your rights are honored and that you are not haunted with anything relating to the case ever again.
Thanks to Grover, my case resulted in complete success. I was found to have committed No Misconduct and I am now able to retire honorably, on my own time and my own terms. Grover Baxley specializes in military legal issues, especially NJPs, administrative boards and court-martials. There is no other choice if you are ever faced with anything legal that could possibly negatively affect your military career. Don't wait and LOOK NO FURTHER...........Grover Baxley is the legal counsel you need!!!
I never thought I would ever be someone who needed legal representation to save my military career, but I can assure you without reservation, I would NOT be a Navy Chief today had I not selected Grover Baxley to represent me at an Administrative Separation Board.
My troubles stemmed from a civilian court charge. I worked closely with my command and Legal Officers from start to finish. Despite assurances I was given that my command supported me and would not pursue disciplinary action against me once the issue was resolved in town, that’s not what happened. An Administrative Separation Board was convened to determine whether I should be retained for Naval service. I trusted my command and Legal Officers, but the reality is that they represent the Commanding Officer and Navy. NOT having someone representing ME almost cost me my career.
Fortunately, I was able to find and hire Grover Baxley to represent MY interests. Mr. Baxley did a phenomenal job of researching every aspect of my case and arrived to my Administrative Separation Board 100% prepared. His professionalism and composure helped me maintain a level head throughout the most difficult day in my life, and without question made a positive impact on the Board members.
There aren’t enough adjectives to describe Mr. Baxley’s performance at the Board. He is a likeable person of impressive intellect, so he was easily able to interject important points for my defense when required without upsetting the people involved in the proceedings. His ability to challenge the prosecutor and testimony against me in a firm but respectful way scored high at the board. I saw characteristics in Mr. Baxley’s performance I never even thought about, never mind recognizing how his demeanor could work in my favor.
You’re reading this because you need legal assistance. If you want the best, you want Mr. Baxley in your corner. He saved my career, my retirement benefits, and I am STILL a Proud Navy Chief thanks to his excellence! I can never say it enough or with more heartfelt conviction, but thank you Mr. Baxley. You’re the BEST.
Due to Grover’s hard work and knowledge of the system, I was able to retain ALL of my benefits, as well my retirement. I put in over twenty years in the Coast Guard, and was very disappointed in the way my command treated me on my way out. But Grover made sure that my twenty years was not in vain. Grover is young looking, but don't let that fool you. Grover presented himself well in my Court Martial!!! I feel Grover made the Prosecuting Attorneys look like they were fresh out of Law School in the way Grover presented himself and in the way he represented me.
To Grover... I hope you never tire of protecting the innocent. You are a valued person to my family and me. I owe everything to you and your staff!!! If it was not for you, I would have never salvaged everything you fought for on my behalf.
There is absolutely no one else more qualified to represent the men and women of the Armed Services in legal matters than Grover Baxley. His active duty experience as a defense counsel in the Air Force and current service in the Air Force Reserve make him supremely qualified and solidify his credibility with court members.
During my trial, Grover’s integrity, honesty, skill, knowledge, preparation, and experience shined. His mastery of his profession dwarfed the prosecution and I was exonerated of all charges and walked out of the courtroom a free man.
If you are in need of legal representation…look no further. Grover Baxley is undoubtedly your best choice!
Dear CAPT Price:
I can't adequately express my gratitude for your professional assistance and personal compassion that you have afforded me during the very worst time of my life - many, many thanks!
I guess something good comes out of every situation - I met a patriot/lawyer who represented me well, was more than fair regarding compensation for their work, and provided emotional support and encouragement when I desperately needed it. I know from working for the former VCJCS that being considered a true "shipmate" is considered an honor in the Navy - well we have an equivalent in the Army - I would share a foxhole with you anytime!
Dear Captain Price--
When I needed to select a lawyer to take my case, I hoped to find someone who would not only be an effective advocate, but who understood the meaning of being an officer in the armed forces. Your background as a senior JAG corps officer, and the fact you had been a military judge was a key factor in this decision. The brotherhood of the officer corps is something that I take very seriously; you cannot trust your life and those of others to those who do not understand concepts like loyalty, sacrifice and honor. You do, and that is rare.
Last June, my father gave me a sound piece of advice--"Get a lawyer. Get a good one." I did.
Please stay in touch; should your work or holidays take you out here, please be assured of a warm welcome. You will be receiving an invitation to "The Mother of All Wetting Downs" in the near future.
If [client] wants the best, here he is.
Through this whole nightmare that lasted for nine months Mr. Baxley was there every step of the way. He always talked with me and assured me that everything was going to be okay. Throughout this process, Mr. Baxley was in Virginia and I am stationed in Guam. Despite the distance between us, he treated me just as if I were right next door. I felt very comfortable knowing that my future rested in his hands. I would highly recommend Grover Baxley to ANYONE. If you are in the military and facing legal issues, I strongly urge to you to hire an attorney rather than only taking the legal representation the military offers. Grover Baxley is the way to go.
When I first called your office, my husband and I were lost and unsure if life would ever get better. How I found your website, I will never know. Call it luck… synchronicity… a ray of hope. We were both very impressed and satisfied with our decision to go with your services. I can’t begin to tell you how much better we felt knowing you were defending [Client]. Each step of the way, you helped us understand a very confusing process; and prepared us for every possible outcome. Every time an obstacle popped up we were confident you would know which direction to take. Thanks for all your hard work. I am so happy that [Client] will be permitted to continue his career. And thank you for always asking if we were doing okay; that was so unexpected and such a caring thing to do. If anyone I know ever needs your expertise and help, I will recommend you wholeheartedly!
When we first contacted Grover, our son had been dropped from Marine Corps School of Infantry Training at Camp Pendleton in San Diego for medical reasons. Although we had not retained him for legal services, Grover still spoke with us several times and provided legal advice that helped ensure our son was fully aware of his rights as a Marine. Grover’s obvious extensive knowledge and experience with military law, as well as his professionalism and personal commitment, were the reasons we chose him to represent our son when the Marine Corps threatened to discharge him with an Other than Honorable characterization. Grover’s advice and personal encouragement helped our son maintain a positive and hopeful attitude throughout several months of legal wrangling.
We absolutely recommend Grover to any person needing military legal assistance.
Dear Attorney Price,
I am sure by now you know [redacted] was granted his security clearance. This little email is to say Thank you from me and the girls. I finally feel that we are on the last stages of the "road to recovery" for all of us too. This has been a very emotional roll a coaster for all of us. [Redacted] is doing so well. He has just re-enrolled again in school for the next semester. You cannot imagine the relief when we opened that letter. He and I were alone. We cried together ( I am still thanking the Lord) and laughed together. This was our final hurdle. You did such a great job and from the bottom of my heart I cannot say Thank you enough for being such a kind and understanding person not just an attorney. You are the best.
I hope your Christmas was a good one. From all of us we wish you a safe, happy and yes prosperious New Year. You will always be in my thoughts as a person who made it possible for us to continue on our path to recovery.
God Bless You and Keep You Safe
I want to thank you for your professional services during this intense security matter. Your expertise and professionalism has provided me a sense of calmness and confidence that things will work out. Your expertise and ability to communicate at a moment's notice is much appreciated. Thanks again.
I have received the response and reviewed it - flawless! You are incredible; I have no doubts, regardless of the outcome, you have really given your best effort. I have learned from this experience; however, if I ever encounter anyone in need of advisement or legal services for a clearance I will refer them to you. There is actually a federal talk website where individuals collaborate about their clearance status', etc.
With your permission, I would love to mention you there. Maybe inappropriate but my instincts say, "Who that?" Wow, I am impressed. I look forward to receiving my action. Please keep me and my clearance in your prayers. Thank you!
I want to take this opportunity while we wait for a response to thank you for all your efforts. Whether the case goes positive or negative I felt you did a good and competent job. Its too bad I did not know of your firm during the first SOR things might have gone differently. I simply went with the lawyer suggested by our top security officer at XXXX. While the lawyer was ok I did not think he had a lot of expertise in handling security clearance denials, at least not the kind that I got. I always felt that my intent was the biggest issue and that some how my intent never got across.
Additionally, my brother, a LT. was at the trial, he has been involved in hundreds of legal cases. He said Mr. Baxley was the best he's ever seen and made the Government look like a joke.
My wife and I want to thank you for your counsel. Your work while you were on vacation was greatly appreciated. The "plan" turned out just as you said it would and I am glad this matter is behind me. Working for the military means very much to me. Your steady hand makes my continued service a reality. Again, thank you for going out of your way to help me.
Thank you for your unbelievable dedication and effort towards my case. The successful resolution to my case is a direct result of your hard work. Since the ruling of “No Misconduct" at my Board of Inquiry, I have been successfully reinstated into my branch of service. My career has soared once again. I have completed a tour in Afghanistan and am currently serving a tour in Iraq. I am also in the process of selecting to the next pay grade. Thanks, bless and take care.
When the date of my trial finally arrived, I was very nervous since I had so much riding on the outcome of the case. However, Mr. Baxley did a great job of helping me stay calm and maintain my military bearing during the trial. He is a master of courtroom strategy. He was totally prepared for everything the prosecutor threw at us. When the court was in recess, he would sit down with me and present me my options based on how he thought the trial was progressing. This was very useful because it helped me understand exactly what was happening and anticipate what could happen next. He would give me choices 1, 2 or 3 and then advise me which choice was most likely, second most likely and least likely to have a favorable outcome for me. He would also discuss the possible consequences to each of those choices. There were also several times where he presented me options and then told me which one he was he was going with simply to keep me informed about our strategy. Bottom line: I was involved in the decision making process and kept very well informed throughout my trial. After three very long and stress filled days, the jury found me Not Guilty of wrongfully using marijuana.
I am very grateful to Mr. Baxley for all of his hard work and aggressively representing me at trial. I honestly do not know where I would be right now if I had not put his knowledge and experience to work for me. I thank God everyday that He led me to Mr. Baxley and that with Mr. Baxley's help, I was found Not Guilty of these charges.
If at any time during my career I here of or know of someone going through any clearance related issues I will be sure to give them your name and number. Once again thank you for everything, I can finally sleep peacefully knowing that this huge issue has been resolved.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I can't even truly express my gratitude and relief. If not for your hard work and knowledge this couldn't have happened. Even though I had done the work to get my life on track, without your knowledge of how to put it together and present it, I don't think I would have been able to achieve this outcome. And thanks for being so kind to me. If ever I meet someone that needs an attorney's services for clearance adjudication, I would highly recommend that they contact you.
This means so much to me not just career-wise, but I'm dating a wonderful man who has a Top Secret and if I couldn't have gotten my clearance you can see where that would have caused difficulties for us.
Once again, thank you and God Bless you,
The moment I sat down with Grover, he was genuinely open to hearing my case and circumstances, and was very sincere and endearing in his concern for me. He did not try to paint some “false pretty picture” for me, but gave me all the possible and likely outcomes straight forward. What stood out to me the most about that meeting was that he was very easy to talk to, and was immediately protective of my rights and well-being. It was only long after talking about the case, the possible outcomes, his protecting my immediate rights and character; that we finally talked about fees. That spoke volumes to me.
From the moment I signed the paperwork for him to represent me, my Commanding Officer and everyone involved with my case were contacted by Grover, and instructed that he will and must be notified well before I was to be questioned, or asked to sign a document, or do anything regarding my case. Every step of the process was coordinated and handled for me by Grover, to ensure that I was never mistreated or had my rights violated. Through 8 motion hearings and up through the week long Court Martial, I honestly feel what Grover charged me was nowhere near the compensation he deserved for the level of work he performed.
As a Chief who in a span of only 3 years was awarded 2 Navy Commendation Medals, the Bronze Star Medal, and a Navy Wide Leadership Award; I adamantly state I can recognize when a person is in the ELITE of his or her profession…and Grover is THE ELITE! His tenacious work ethic and profound legal expertise is the ONLY reason I was able to have my innocence proven, and to be found NOT GUILTY of the Article 120 Charge! Even after my Court-Martial, Grover continued to make sure that my rights were protected and honored. For his unwavering character, strong work ethic, and legal expertise; I am eternally grateful! I would proudly talk to any potential client who is considering hiring Grover Baxley to defend them, and give them my personal story of how he safeguarded my life!
Attorney Price: My wife and I would like to appreciate you for dedicated service to my security clearance case. I was advised by the security specialist that it was not necessary to have a lawyer in order to respond to submit my response to Army CCF. After working with you to put together the solid response and receiving a favorable reply I am glad that I decided to work with you. I could not have put together such a strong response on my own not being aware of all it takes. I am glad that my case will not be going beyond the SOR as I have my clearance has now been conditionally reinstated. Thank you for your responsiveness, demonstrated expertise, and professionalism throughout the process – from the first day I contacted your office to even your sound counsel after I informed you of the favorable response. We highly recommend you to anyone needing assistance to put together a first-rate response.
