Mr. Stanfield’s advocacy training started, not in law school, but in high school where he led his high school policy debate team to its first state championship in nearly twenty years. Not to be confined to Kansas, Mr. Stanfield also qualified to compete nationally in policy debate and extemporaneous speaking. He took this competitive spirit with him to the University of Michigan on an Army ROTC scholarship. There he studied in the highly regarded political science department and was a proud member of the Ranger Challenge Team. He also attended Airborne School and served as a cadet company commander as a senior. Mr. Stanfield commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in Military Intelligence and earned an educational delay to attend law school prior to starting active duty.
