Legal Director | Craig Barrett
Craig Barrett currently serves as the Operations Manager at Marine Corps Systems Command and is an adjunct instructor with Averett University’s Masters in Business Administration program, teaching business law with a focus on ethics.
Mr. Barrett’s military career began immediately after the terrorist attacks in September in 2001 when Mr. Barrett joined the United States Marine Corps in December of that same year. He entered the Officer Candidate Course 179 in January 2002 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in April and served as a Judge Advocate until 2008. After being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 2008, attaining the rank of Major, he received the Navy Marine Corps Achievement Medal and Navy Marine Corps Commendation Medal for his service.
Mr. Barrett is also the founder of the limited liability company, ACS Capital Investors, LLC (ACS) doing business as Premier Stays Executive Suites. ACS specialized in providing housing for transient professionals relocating to the National Capital Region. The company focused on servicing mobilized Reservists who were called to active duty in support of the Global War on Terrorism. Leveraging his legal background, his knowledge of Military Reserve Policy, and his expertise in the current housing market, Mr. Barrett was able to support an under-served population of service-members during their transition from civilian to active duty service. During his company’s first two years of business, ACS provided transition support, career counseling, and housing to over 20 service members for the duration of their mobilization orders, which in many cases was over a two year period.
He earned his BA in philosophy from Brooklyn College, Magna Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa, and with honors in the department of philosophy in 1995. He subsequently received his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and later received his license to practice law in New York in 2000.
Craig’s passion to serve those who have served our country continues: he has expanded his commitment and service to include Veterans who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to ensure these Veterans have access to the resources and support they have earned.
