Our criminal defense attorneys defend false accusations of rape, child abuse, and sexual assault under Article 120 UCMJ, 120b UCMJ, and 120c UCMJ.

Unlike most civilian military lawyers or your assigned military lawyer, pleading guilty is not something we do often. We force the military to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. We take almost every criminal case to trial and fight the allegations in front of a jury.

Our military court martial outcomes are clear. The suspected service member and his or her well-being is our chief concern. Our military defense attorneys maintain lighter caseloads than the typical appointed defense attorney so that we can concentrate on each trial separately.
