Court Martial Lawyer Serving Military Members Worldwide
For a service member who has been accused of sexual assault, the future may hold imprisonment, a ruined military career, dishonorable discharge and worse. In the face of allegations of rape or any type of
sex crime, you need a military defense lawyer who will fight tirelessly to protect your good name.

You cannot afford to be stuck with an apathetic or untried lawyer at this critical time in your career, and The Bilecki Law Group, LLC has the legal experience and skill to defend your rights.
