If you are under investigation for a military crime, hiring the most experienced military attorney can be the difference between going to jail versus winning your case or redeeming your career. Our criminal defense lawyers represent service members in UCMJ and administrative matters, including defending Sailors accused of sexual assault, robbery, and other crimes under the UCMJ.
Unlike most civilian military lawyers or your assigned lawyer, pleading guilty is not something we commonly do. When we are hired, we compel the prosecution to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. We take almost every charge to trial and fight the charges in front of a military jury.
Our court martial outcomes speak for themselves. The suspected service member and his or her desired outcome is our primary concern. Our military criminal defense attorneys maintain lighter caseloads than the typical assigned US Army military defense attorney so that we can concentrate on each trial separately. Your case will not be outsourced to a random attorney, and we will not coerce you into pleading guilty at the eleventh hour. Our military defense attorneys have contested Army court-martial and administrative separation cases in the US and worldwide.
