While in the Army, he volunteered to go to Vietnam and returned to Fort Knox to complete the US Army Ranger School in 1968. Once he was honorably discharged, he continued with his interest in philosophy and human rights and earned a JD from Columbia University in 1975.
Upon graduating, Mr. Lackland secured an associate position at Dewey, Ballantine, Bushby, Palmer & Wood. He was there for three years and then applied for the position of assistant US attorney in New Jersey and remained in that role until 1981.

He served as partner of Lackland & Associates from 2000 until his retirement. Throughout his career, he maintained professional affiliation with the American Association for Justice, the American Bar Association, the Atlanta Bar Association and the Georgia Bar Association.
