You never expect to need an attorney while you are serving in the Military. You even procrastinate thinking you can manage the simplicity of your case, because after all, you are innocent, and you think the Government will recognize that. However, sometimes simplicity is not a government characteristic and things can spiral out of control. If you are a service member and ever need legal assistance, I implore you to call an Attorney.You will want a knowledgeable attorney with a military background, extensive NLSO connections, who shoots straight and will be the sharp end of your legal sword.Stephanie Kral was my attorney through 3 years of managing my case against the U.S. Gov. and without Stephanie and her team, it would have been a nightmare. I am fortunate to have enlisted her services and had the opportunity to watch her navigate the complexities of military law. She is everything you will want in an experienced attorney for both simple and complex cases. Call them immediately!

Stephanie is the most professional, well respected, and most genuine legal person that I know in the business. After working with her, from the moment we talked to the time she finished my case, she gave not only 100 percent of her time and dedication but also complete devotion to my needs, advise, and my case without hesitation. Her extensive background in military law coming from her military background as a Major in the United States Airforce and now civilian law comes unmatched. Her dedication to protecting the rights of military members speakes for itself with the flawless record she has out there in the fleet. Words cant express enough what she has done for me and my family ensuring I got the fairest case available and the best outcome there was. Thank you Stephanie. She is the best there is!!

Fortunately, I have not had to use these services however, once I heard Danielle worked here I knew I would be in good hands should I ever need assistance. Danielle was my paralegal supervisor when I was first entered into the paralegal career field and she changed my career trajectory for the better. She paved the way for me to promote through the ranks and managed my training phase from an apprentice to a journeyman in the career field. She has expert knowledge and provides candid feedback to those who ask. She's an all around professional.

I have been attempting to write this review for Stephanie for 3 months, Everytime I write it I delete it because I don’t think it’s good enough. This review was long past due but To the individual that may be facing any type of legal troubles from the bottom of my heart this is THE lawyer that you want on your side. At the age of 21, I faced 20 years in prison for a crime I did not commit. Stephanie is the definition of top-tier no words can describe how grateful I am for Stephanie and her team. She not only got my case dismissed, but she gave me my life back, for 2 1/2 years I was stuck in South Korea my command didn’t allow me to take leave. When I told Stephanie she dropped everything and went above and beyond, Steph personally told the government they better allow me to take leave to see my family. THE SAME DAY! They granted me 45 days of leave & when I came back I received a call from Stephanie, yelling with joy “ they are dropping all the charges “. Stephanie is that lawyer you see in movies who always wins, even when you feel like something isn’t going right Stephanie is always in control. Not only did the government lawyers respect her, the judge respected her , the Commanding General respected her and knew her name. So all I can say is thank you Stephanie and if you’re someone who truly needs help this is your lawyer ! Stephanie told me I was her second longest case that she ever had but one thing I can always guarantee about Stephanie is she never lacks when it comes to communication anything you wanna know anything you should know she will let you know Stephanie is an open book she tells you how it is she’s not gonna lie to you or waste your time.From the bottom of my heart thank you Stephanie !

Steph is the best in the business. She is compassionate, hardworking, intelligent, diligent, and knowledgeable. As a fellow attorney and colleague, I have reached out to Steph to bring her on board and help with some of my toughest cases, knowing having her by my side would lead to the best possible outcome.She is a fierce advocate for her clients; she does not back down or take nonsense from anyone. She is one of the few attorneys I would never want to see on the other side of a case.If you are in a tough spot and in need of legal assistance, you will not find better representation than Stephanie Kral.

Before I retired from the Air Force, I had a life altering experience. I was accused of some very serious crimes and facing major prison time if convicted. I was referred to Stephanie Kral by a legal advisor and man, was I happy that I obtained her service. This woman is a master of her craft. She was professional, focused, extremely through with her research and background information gathering. Mrs. Kral’s litigation skills are at extraordinary levels and once I’ve seen her 1st day in court I knew I was is great hands. I owe my life to Stephanie Kral and I would recommend her to anyone needing the best military criminal defense attorney around.

As a junior officer with less than three years in service, I found myself facing a GOMOR for fraternization and in need of legal assistance during a criminal trial. Steph eagerly took on my case, represented me with honor, provided essential insight and advice, and ultimately relieved the tension that comes when facing uncertain outcomes. Thanks to Steph’s professionalism, diligence, and proficient understanding of military law, my case was met with favorable outcomes and I am once again in control of my life and military career, with the GOMOR in my rear view.

Former Client

The moment I reached out to Kral Military Defense and got on the phone with Stephanie I knew I had made the right decision. During a very stressful time, she acted with professionalism and made me feel as if I were her only client. We attacked the investigation with zeal, and exactly as she had explained to me in the beginning, it was a wild goose chase. Her defense package presentation was phenomenal and all charges were dropped as they should have been. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone who is in a military legal situation requiring counsel.

I am so blessed to have had Stephanie represent me in my administrative demotion process. I was down, depressed, ready to give up and throw in the towel but her encouragement and guidance gave me the strength to fight to keep my stripe. If it weren’t for her talents, I would have ended my remarkable 11 year career on a low and horrible note but because of her hard work, I was able to finish my career on a high note and separate with my full severance! Thank you so much Stephanie!!

Former Client

Thank you so much to Stephanie for helping me in my case! If it wasn’t for her expertise and knowledge I would not still be in the Navy today. Because of her, my entire case was dropped and I couldn’t have had a better outcome happen to me. Now I can continue my career and life while striving to be better every day. Thank you!!

Former Client

I am extremely blessed to have had Stephanie Kral as my lawyer. She always had my best interests in mind, while keeping me grounded and aware of the potential outcomes. Steph was upfront in her explanations of the legal process as well as any actions she took on my behalf. I’m not one who will easily place my faith or trust in someone; however, Steph earned my trust and gained my respect. Her professional approach with persons on both sides of the case turned what could have been a contentious circumstance into a smooth proceeding. I would highly recommend Steph to anyone I know.

Former Client

Stephanie Kral was a beacon of hope to me and my family when our options appeared slim to nonexistent, and the likelihood of a favorable resolution seemed nearly impossible. Not only was she able to defend us from an unjust accusation that could have ended my 13-year Naval career, but her calm and collective demeanor also offered emotional aid and relief to me and those that mean everything to me.

Former Client

“Steph really saved me. I’m covered for life because of her. Thank you!”

Former Client, USMC

I am an E-4 in the Navy that was represented by Stephanie Kral. I received an EO complaint from the command which I did not commit. Steph gathered evidence to prove my innocence. Due to the COVID pandemic, the process was slower than expected, but Steph was very engaging with any question I asked her and made sure to reply within the day. After the command processed the EO complaint, I was given notification of NJP. Steph advised me of all possible outcomes and told me all avenues and charges I could possibly face. We ultimately decided to turn down NJP and have our day in court. Instead, the command sent me to an ADSEP board. Steph and I spent weeks preparing to have the best possible outcome and defense. The government tried very hard to give me an Other than Honorable discharge, but with Steph’s aggressive cross-examination and evidence gathering, I was more than happy with the outcome. If you are facing any charges at all in the military contact this lawyer!!

Former Client

Steph was able to defend me from an accusation I found to be unjust. She educated me on the process and helped me navigate a maze of red tape and bureaucracy. While working with Steph I felt my situation was in the most competent of hands.

Former Client

Steph has been amazing to work with. She is supportive and fair. I couldn’t have found a more perfect fit for my situation. I would definitely refer her to anyone who may need her services. I want everyone to have the opportunity to be treated as well as I was.

Former Client

I had a life-altering experience when I was accused of some very serious crimes and facing major prison time if convicted. I retained Stephanie and, man, was I happy I did. This woman is a master of her craft. She was professional, focused, extremely thorough with her research and evidence gathering. Steph’s litigation skills are at extraordinary levels, and once I saw her in court I knew my life was in great hands. I owe my life to Steph, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting the best criminal defense attorney around.

Former Client

I can’t thank Steph enough for the work she put into my appeal. While the GOMOR was not removed entirely, I’m greatly satisfied with the results. I’m able to continue my career and begin to put this behind me. It’s been a very trying time in my life and career. There’s more I’d like to add but I’m overwhelmed with gratitude and emotions at this moment. Simply put, thank you Stephanie.

Former Client

Working with Stephanie Kral proved to be effective. She has the highest quality of professional communication and performance. She is truly a master at her craft. I strongly recommend choosing Stephanie Kral as your legal representative. Seeing her from experience during my administrative separation board, her ability to sway the judges/board members in attendance with her arguments and cross-examining skills gave me confirmation that I picked the right person to beat the case brought against me. With allegations of abusive sexual contact and assault consummated by battery, being falsely accused of such a serious offense can put your livelihood and career on the line, with permanent detrimental effects to finding a job in the government and civilian sector. I had to get the best service possible. Choosing Stephanie and giving her all the evidence and tools to use in her arsenal will prove to be in your best interest if you’re serious about resolving your legal issues. Stephanie Kral is one the best out there for military defense. Don’t pass up an opportunity to work with Stephanie Kral!

Former Client

When I chose to contact Steph I was at a low and stressful point in both my life and career. Steph not only helped me work through the situation I was in, but offered me advice on how to move forward after this. I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else to represent me.
