Need a Military Criminal Defense Attorney?

Seek help from a former active duty officer!

Are you currently facing a court-martial? A court-martial is not a place for your lawyer to learn on the job. You need a lawyer who is free from the confines of the uniform, but who can still look and behave like an officer before a military panel. You need to retain the services of a highly experienced military criminal defense lawyer who possesses a true understanding of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which is a specialized area of law.

I am not only a civilian El Paso criminal defense lawyer, but also a Retired Army Judge Advocate. (JAG) I have prosecuted and defended cases at numerous military installations around the world. I take pride in the opportunity to defend the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines as they have defended us. I take your representation seriously. The stakes are too high and the consequences are too far reaching to give you any less.

Successfully Navigate the Military Justice System (UCMJ) with My Help

The Uniform Code of Military Justice is a very specialized area of the law. You need a lawyer who can not only try a case, but one who understands the Military Justice System (UCMJ), the rules for Court-martials, and more importantly one who understands the "military culture." Unlike a civilian jury, your jury will not be composed of "your peers."

Instead, your jurors in a military case will likely consist of:

  • Individuals who are far superior to you in rank; from E-8 to O-6.
  • Highly educated and generally older individuals who are absolutely invested in the good order and discipline of the service.

The last thing you want to encounter is having a civilian lawyer during your trial, with no military experience, struggling to understand the differences between a Company and a Battery or a Squadron and a Wing. Should you hire me to handle your military criminal offense, you can rest assured that your lawyer knows the military; the culture, speaks the language, and understands the military way of life.
