Impacts of Military Crime Charges on Your Future

Military crimes involve violations of the UCMJ, which governs the behavior of military personnel. Convictions for such crimes can lead to severe consequences, such as dishonorable discharge, loss of benefits, imprisonment, and a criminal record that may limit future employment opportunities.

The seriousness of these potential outcomes emphasizes the need for an active and skilled defense attorney. With significant experience in military law, Don't Talk Legal Center can provide the resources and representation you need.

Defenses Against Military Crimes

Don't Talk Legal Center represents service members facing military criminal charges. Our approach involves thorough case preparation, meticulous investigation, and aggressive representation in court.

Examples of military crimes we handle include:

  • Desertion. This involves leaving military service without intent to return or to avoid hazardous duty.
  • Insubordination. This includes not following orders or showing disrespect towards superiors.
  • Absence without leave (AWOL). A service member must be at their appointed place of duty with authorization.
  • Conduct unbecoming an officer. This includes behavior that dishonors or disgraces the officer and personally or seriously compromises their ability to fulfill their duties.
  • Fraudulent enlistment. This involves providing false information or withholding necessary information during the enlistment process.
  • Fraternization. This includes unprofessional relationships between officers and enlisted members.

Navigating the Military Court System

The military court system is distinct from civilian court rules and procedures. The UCMJ governs martial law, which applies to all military branches. The military courts have jurisdiction over all active-duty members, reservists, and retired military personnel.

Military courts can try any military crime in three types of courts: summary, unique, and general courts-martial, with varying severity and potential consequences, and the accused has the right to a defense attorney.

Our Approach to Military Crimes Defense

As your defense attorney, we will strive to uncover all facts and build a robust defense. Our representation is not about encouraging you to plead guilty unless it is genuinely in your best interest. Rather, we will thoroughly analyze the evidence, question the prosecution's witnesses, and challenge any procedural errors or rights violations during your arrest or investigation.

Our philosophy is to make ourselves readily available to our clients. We ensure that all calls are returned promptly, often within five minutes. Being result-oriented, we strive to get every case dismissed. Our two-plus decades of combined experience have earned us respect and recognition in the legal industry.

Examples of the service members we represent include:

  • Active-duty military personnel
  • Reserve and National Guard members
  • Retired military personnel
  • Military academy cadets
  • ROTC members
  • Persons who are subject to the UCMJ under martial law or during a time of declared war
