When members face UCMJ, disciplinary or administrative action, all the power, influence and resources of the military are arrayed against them. The military takes a harsh stance on disciplinary and administrative actions, with investigators building the case and prosecutors pushing hard for a conviction and maximum punishment, including jail time, rank reduction, lost pay, and a punitive or administrative discharge. The prosecution has a well staffed office of lawyers, paralegals, investigators and other personnel supporting their efforts, and it not using them to look out for you. Frequently, we have found that the members’ rights are the last consideration for the government, if they are considered at all. In order to effectively counter the government’s version of events, defend against the charges and push to save their rank, pay, careers, reputations and freedom, members need aggressive, experienced lawyers who know the military justice system and will fight hard for them and look out for their rights. They need lawyers who have resources to match the prosecution. That is where we come in.
We are the counsel of choice for military members facing court-martial, discharge, nonjudicial punishment and other disciplinary actions at home and around the world. From the alleged abuses at Abu Ghraib Prison to the USS Columbus Hazing scandal, we have provided representation to military members of all services: Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. We are experienced former JAG attorneys and military defense lawyers who now put our expertise to work in providing dedicated, aggressive and effective representation on behalf of military members facing the most serious charges in high stakes cases. As former prosecutors and defense attorneys in the military justice system, we know how to deal with military investigators and prosecutors. Our extensive experience with military justice matters ranges from courts-martial where clients were faced with multiple life sentences in prison to nonjudicial punishment, administrative discharge boards, discharge notification actions and other administrative sanctions.
We have the personnel and resources to help provide you with the most effective defense possible. We are part of a firm with paralegals and other support staff supporting our efforts on your behalf. We also have access to investigators, psychologists, and other experts who may be necessary to mount a successful defense, depending upon the nature of the case.
Being charged with a criminal offense in the military or being discharged after years of devoted service can be a jarring, confusing and frightening experience. It puts a military member’s entire future in doubt. We have decades of experience in helping hundreds of clients aggresively and effectively defend themselves against allegations of wrongdoing.
