Leading Authors & Lecturers on Criminal Defense, Article 120 UCMJ Sexual Assault Defense, Closing Arguments, & Cross-Examination

Our books on cross-examining forensic experts, sexual assault victims, law enforcement, and witnesses in sexual assault cases are national bestsellers for court-martial attorneys and civilian defense lawyers.

Michael & Alexandra co-authored three of the  leading textbooks on cross-examination:

ALL of these books are used by civilian criminal defense lawyers across the United States as well as Military Sexual Assault Lawyers (civilian and military). These books are one of your best sexual assault defense resource in a contested trial.

"Many prosecution witnesses see themselves as advocates and members of the prosecution team. Some witnesses will do whatever is necessary to win and send the defendant to prison, regardless of guilt or innocence. This may include lying, exaggerating, and misstating facts and science. These books were written for criminal defense lawyers on the front lines in the war on sexual assault. They contain pattern questions that will help dominate prosecution witnesses and level the playing field."

We Teach Civilian Criminal Defense Lawyers & Military Defense Lawyers Across the USA How to Win Cases & Put Up the Best Criminal Defense.

We represent military clients that are under investigation by CID, OSI, and NCIS, with the objective of avoiding criminal charges.

What are the best UCMJ Article 120 defense strategies?

If you’re facing an Article 120 UCMJ military sexual assault allegations in the military justice system or falsely accused of military sexual assault, the deck is stacked against you. The prosecution has virtually unlimited resources and all the attorneys and paralegals it needs to work toward imprisoning you for the maximum sentence. Defendants feel helpless, scared, and overwhelmed. They feel like a guilty plea is their only option, which is exactly what the prosecution wants.

A guilty plea should only be a last resort. It should only be entered with the competent representation of qualified counsel who has your best interest at heart. Even when there’s that a chance a defendant can prove his or her innocence, it’s not uncommon for military or civilian defense attorneys to instead enter a guilty plea.

Select Your Criminal Defense Lawyer With Care Or Become Another Statistic - We defend false UCMJ Article 120 Allegations

Hiring the best military defense attorney possible couldn’t be more critical.

Many military prosecutors will use every tactic they can to manipulate all aspects of a case and thwart the defendant’s ability to mount an adequate defense. Thus, it is crucial to put up the best court-martial defense possible.

Prosecutors offer witnesses favors, plea deals, and immunity as long as they say what they’re asked to help win a case.

Even requests to use the same experts as used by the prosecution are often denied. It is critical to select an attorney with the experience and skill to win a case without defense experts, if needed. Our firm teaches other lawyers how to attack and discredit prosecution experts.

This tactic uses as many charges as possible to leave defendants little choice but to plead guilty. It is not uncommon to see court-martial charge sheets that are three pages long with the same charge repeated in different ways.

They are all working to find any and all information about you. Investigators often lose, overlook, or misplace evidence that helps the defense. Prosecutors and law enforcement will twist favorable facts and use them against you at trial.

They are trained in shady interrogation tactics, and they’re good at it. Investigators will try to get away with as many sneaky tactics as a defense lawyer allows. That’s why it’s important to hire a lawyer who knows the tricks of the trade and can use them to your advantage.

From the Judge to the jury, defendants are outranked. That includes the Chief of Military Justice (the Convening Authority that decides if a defendant will face a court-martial and picks the jury), the Staff Judge Advocate, preliminary hearings officers, and your assigned military lawyer. That’s why an aggressive military defense lawyer who’s not subject to rank is critical to a winning defense.

But to many SJAs, “justice” means getting a conviction, a discharge, and the toughest sentence possible. As the prosecutor’s boss, the SJA isn’t concerned about your freedom or your family’s welfare. They just want a conviction. They will bully prosecutors and your own defense attorneys alike to get it. Even when preliminary hearing officers find facts that don’t support bringing charges, some SJA offices still proceed to trial.

The prosecution is allowed to call any witnesses they desire without informing the defense of what those witnesses will say. But the defense must disclose exactly what its witnesses will say and what role their testimonies will play. Some judges require the defense to disclose even more details, revealing the entire defense strategy. In high profile cases, military defense lawyers face incredible pressure to plead guilty.

If you want a fair shot in the civilian or military justice system,
you need the best military defense lawyers – court martial attorneys in your corner to even the odds. We encourage you to do some research to find the best court martial lawyers for your case.

How to select the best Article 120 UCMJ lawyers

Before hiring military defense lawyers, do your research to find the best court martial lawyer for your particular case. As military defense lawyers who have defended service members around the world in both court-martial cases and administrative separation boards, Michael Waddington and Alexandra González-Waddington are known for being aggressive, fearless, and hard-hitting. We have successfully defended hundreds of military members falsely accused of Article 120 UCMJ sexual offenses. Despite overwhelming odds, our firm has successfully defended cases in Korea, Japan, Iraq, Kuwait, and other cities around the world. Do your homework when looking for the best court-martial lawyer for your military sexual assault Article 120 case.

Our court-martial defense lawyers have a history of winning cases at trial, so prosecutors take them seriously.
