You are part of the 1% - the 1% of people in this Nation who raise their hand to serve this County. You put your life on the line every day. You deploy to difficult environments. You miss births, birthdays, and family events. You and your family continually sacrifice to support the mission. You work hard for your benefits and retirement. You work even harder for your rank and your reputation. No one should take that away from you. If someone tries, I am here to help.
While the military does its best to treat personnel fairly, I know like you that it does not always do so. I have observed how the larger organization or a specific individual within a particular unit can treat personnel unfairly. I understand why our fighting men and women deserve better.
When you are under investigation or charged with a violation of the UCMJ or substandard performance, you want the best representation possible. I deliver that to every client. I am a former Active Duty JAG attorney who is certified as a Specialist in Military Justice litigation by the Judge Advocate General of the Navy.* For over a decade, I have served as a prosecutor, defense counsel, and Staff Judge Advocate. I have served as an Executive Officer. My experience in these roles gives me the insight needed to win your case. I know how to speak to commanders. I know how to speak to other JAGs. With so much on the line, don't put your career and benefits in the hands of an inexperienced attorney.
Unlike uniformed JAGs, as a private attorney, I am not bound by rank. I am not intimidated talking to senior officers and enlisted leaders. Rather, I am committed to one thing only: aggressively defending you, your reputation, and your service record before commanders, judges and juries, and administrative boards and agencies.
I represent Active Duty and Reserve Service Members, National Guard Members, and Veterans who are accused of crimes and misconduct in the military and civilian courts. I also represent members being processed for separation for misconduct, performance, and medical reasons. Are you:
