Margaret D. Stock, Lieutenant Colonel (retired), is an attorney with the Anchorage office of Cascadia Cross Border Law, where she devotes her practice to immigration and citizenship matters. Previously, she worked with the Anchorage office of Lane Powell PC. After serving 28 years as a Military Police Officer in the Army Reserve, she transferred to the Retired Reserve of the U.S. Army in June 2010. While a professor at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, NY, Ms. Stock was temporarily assigned to the U.S. Army Accessions Command, where she developed and implemented the Department of Defense’s recruiting program, Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI). Ms. Stock was named one of the 2013 MacArthur Foundation’s Fellows due to her immigration law efforts on behalf of veterans and their families. The Foundation noted three programs she spearheaded, among them her creation and championship of the AILA Military Assistance Program (MAP), a pro bono program to help military members, veterans, and their families with immigration law matters. In its announcement, the Foundation noted that Ms. Stock’s fellowship came with a $625,000 award in recognition of her “written scholarship, and her contributions to policy debates,” all of which allow Ms. Stock to “challenge complex immigration laws in order to provide more humane and rational policies that will also serve American national security interests.”
