“Mr. Edmunds,

I received a favorable adjudication from DoD CAF on 13 September which was one business day after your team submitted my package for the interrogatories response. I am simply amazed by this result! Your firm’s reputation is well earned.

Your team was very responsive and produced an amazing result for my case! Bethany Kotur did an outstanding job of assembling my interrogatory package and was always quick to respond to any of my questions regarding the process.

I sincerely thank you for your representation and for your assistance in helping me to preserve my Air Force career.

Just wanted to express gratitude for handling this matter expeditiously and very early on. It is my belief the packet we initially submitted (request for return of credentials and firearm) helped the agency adjudicate in a positive manner. A re-instatement of my clearance will take affect once I’m done in-briefing. The suspension did not even make it to a LOI or SOR stage. I hope you gentlemen are having a wonderful weekend. I cannot thank you enough.

Your timeline was spot on. Lol. This is a fantastic way to start the new year. Alan was a superstar in the court room and for that we will forever be grateful. Again, thank you to you both. We will absolutely take the time to rate your firm and services on any and all websites your receptionist sends to us. I have forwarded this email to Dale’s work address so that he is able to print the attachment out, sign it and bring it home. I will scan it and return it to you by tomorrow.

    – Client


    Absolutely Amazing Attorney, Spiritual Leader, and Humanitarian.

    Alan is an absolutely amazing attorney with a lot of experience. He serves his clients, humanity, and all people in a fashion that other attorneys should emulate. He’s a good friend of the veteran and LGBTQ communities who has helped countless people with military discharge upgrades, including myself, allowing us to serve our country again despite past regulations and laws. Alan was with me through every step of the way, handled everything very professionally, and was extremely supportive. Although sometimes he and his team can be very busy whilst travelling to hear very important cases and helping other clients, he and his team, including Dennis, always made the greatest effort to respond back to all of my questions, concerns, and comments in a prompt fashion. His capability as an attorney is only matched by his willingness to shape the world through his spirituality and faith. Although, I’ve never been one to quote the Bible, it is through immense gratitude to him that I must recall that “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:7). His true Christian demeanor is the type of love and tenacity the world seeks.
