I. Charles McCullough Testimonials

Changed my view of lawyers forever

Chuck is not only an intelligent person and extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies of my type of case, but he was also the most compassionate and thorough lawyer I have ever worked with. He spent the time needed to ensure he completely understood my case and made sure he anticipated every boundary or question that might come up. He was right in every instance and I felt fully prepared to answer the questions that were asked of me when the time came. I would recommend him to anyone. He is a true gem among stones.

Intelligence and law enforcement background at a senior level combine to create a unique set of skills to resolve issues.

I contacted Mr. McCullough based on a strong referral from a senior official within the Inspector General and intelligence community. The issues included law enforcement issues and the resolution of background and clearance matters with strong equities in both the Executive and Legislative branches. The direct first hand experience of Mr. McCullough with key players and his historical knowledge of institutional processes was invaluable in gaining insight in developing a strategy on how to frame legal issues and leverage opportunities.

Brilliant Attorney

Not only is Chuck a brilliant attorney, he’s genuinely kind, compassionate, and down-to-earth. While I’m certain he had countless other cases, he was always readily available and responsive in answering my questions and addressing my concerns regarding my security clearance matter. Every single interaction with him was an absolute pleasure.

I have no doubt that my security clearance would not have been favorably adjudicated without Chuck’s expertise and diligence. He worked *so* hard on my case. I can’t express the amount of gratitude and admiration I have for Chuck.

The outcome of each legal case depends upon many factors, including the facts of the case, and no attorney can guarantee a positive result in any particular case. Prior results, including successful judgments and settlements, do not guarantee a similar outcome.
