Getting The Most Out Of Your Free Consultation


Kral Military Defense offers a free, 30-minute phone or video consultation with one of our attorneys.

Getting the most out of your consultation is essential. It can help you make informed decisions and make sure you feel comfortable with the people you have chosen to help you. Here are some tips to maximize the value of your consultation:

Be prepared.

Call us from a quiet place where you are by yourself and can speak freely. Your consultation is confidential, but not if other people are sitting in or can hear the conversation.

Make sure you have any paperwork related to your case in front of you, including reports of investigation, notification of ADSEP/discharge, notification of nonjudicial punishment (NJP), or preferred court-martial charges. This will help us more effectively consult with you.

Make a list of questions. Write things down to make sure you don’t forget any important details during the consultation.

Be ready to provide a concise overview of your situation. Include the charges against you, any evidence you have, and your version of events.

Research the attorney.

Look around the website and make sure the attorney has handled cases like yours. Check their reputation and reviews, including on Google and on the website. Verify their credentials and licensing with their state bar to ensure there is no history of discipline.

In military cases, it is extremely important that the attorney is familiar with and understands the military justice system and the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Check to see if they dabble in many different areas, or whether they focus exclusively on military justice.

Ask questions.

Ask us about our experience with cases like yours. Ask us about the type of process you might be going through. Ask about what types of strategies we use in a case like yours. Ask about our experiences with previous courts-martial, administrative separation boards, and nonjudicial punishments. Be upfront about your expectations. We will always be up front about our assessment of what to expect with your case. Never try to go down the rabbit hole of Google or Reddit trying to figure out how to handle your own case.

Be honest.

There is nothing you can say that is something we haven’t heard before. Give us all the information we request, including anything you find incriminating or embarrassing. This helps us figure out how we can best help you.

At the end of your consultation, we will give you a quote on how much our representation will cost. We never hide the ball with surprise fees or increases simply because your case is taking longer than anyone expected. It’s also important to be honest with us about what you can afford.

Trust your instincts.

Deciding who will represent you is extremely important. You want to use your consultation to get a gauge on the attorney’s knowledge and personality. You want an attorney who is the right fit for you and your case.

Remember that the purpose of a free consultation is to help you decide the best person to represent you. Making the right choice is crucial. To get a free consultation with Steph or Abby, contact Kral Military Defense today.

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.
