Military Criminal Defense
Trusted Legal Representation for All Service Members
Military personnel dedicate their lives to the service of our country. Yet, they are held to a much higher standard than the average civilian. The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) sets high performance and conduct requirements for our military personnel. If brought up on charges, the military will provide you with an attorney.
However, while these attorneys can be dedicated and enthusiastic, most are inexperienced. By allowing this, you take chances with your liberty, discharge status, and additional future ramifications outside the military.
Criminally accused military service members deserve outstanding, aggressive defense from a trusted and highly experienced legal professional. When you have protected and defended your country – you deserve someone experienced to protect your rights and defend your freedom.
Military Charges Can Be Very Difficult
The military justice system is based on the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), which applies to all branches. While the UCMJ is similar in some areas to civilian law, it is also stricter in multiple areas.
All active-duty personnel activated reservists & Guard members, and retirees are always subject to the UCMJ. If a military member commits a crime while off-duty that does not involve the military, they can still be subject to the UCMJ and civilian penalties. Violation of any of the articles of the UCMJ can bring punishments ranging from loss of privileges to forfeiture of pay, confinement, and discharge.
The system can be vulnerable to improper influence, outside pressure, and process manipulation. Military defense cases are some of the nation’s most complex and demanding litigations, and these cases often require judicial savvy to guide their case to a successful conclusion.
