When you are facing accusations by the military, you need someone in your corner who is willing to stand up to commanders, investigators and military judges. You need someone who believes that those who have put their own lives at risk to defend the nation deserve to have their own legal rights protected vigorously. For members of the military, we have all sworn an oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.” Yet there are constant attacks on the rights of the same military personnel who have taken that same oath. Whether you are facing a court-martial, military investigation, nonjudicial punishment under Article 15, an administrative separation board or some other adverse action, you need someone who has only one interest in mind – yours. Do you really want to rely on your appointed military counsel to take on the U.S. Government? Detailed military defense counsel work hard but are usually burdened by an incredible case load, conflicting responsibilities, and are subject to military orders at all times.
