These cases can include rape, sexual assault, aggravated sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, sexual assault of a minor, indecent viewing, indecent recording, forcible pandering, indecent exposure, and other Article 120 and Article 120(c) offenses. Currently, the military is pursuing a right and just campaign to purge sexual assault from the military. The only problem is that the aggressive nature of this campaign has led to an environment where an allegation is being treated as proof of guilt.
There is no justice served to victims of sexual assault when an innocent Soldier is prosecuted. If you are innocent of this charge or feel the full story is not being told, you need to stand up and fight. That is to fight for yourself and for every other Soldier who will be wrongly prosecuted under this campaign. Stand up and fight for your career, retirement, and your freedom.
We defend cases such as conspiracy to defraud the military, BAH fraud, OHA fraud, extortion, larceny, wrongful appropriation, and more. We’ve seen it more times than we can count, but when gear comes up missing, that responsibility gets passed around like a hot potato. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always land in the right hands.
Meanwhile, BAH fraud is perhaps one of the common charges that come out of Fort Belvoir as it pertains to Article 121, UCMJ. Living in and around the Fort Belvoir area isn’t cheap and unfortunately, our military members don’t always get paid as much as their civilian brethren on base. This leads a good Soldier to make an honest mistake or take one risk to many when it comes to taking care of their family. There is always more to the story and we fight to make sure the entire story is told.
We represent service members facing charges including murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault, assault, and cases involving self-defense and defense of another. The truth of the matter is that Soldiers are going to fight from time to time and this has been the case in our military since George Washington first assembled the troops. It’s simply just not that easy to turn the aggression switch on and off.
Unfortunately, this can lead to serious charges when an impromptu weapon like a pool cue, beer bottle, or chair gets involved. What really frustrates us is when it is a civilian that caused the whole fight, and that civilian gets to walk away with a slap on the wrist. Meanwhile, it’s our Soldiers that find themselves standing tall before the UCMJ. A fight shouldn’t be the end of a military career and we fight on your behalf to make it so.
We defend cases involving drug possession, drug distribution, drug importation, drug manufacturing, drug trafficking, positive urinalysis cases, tampering with urinalysis cases, and more. These cases often involve illegal controlled substances such as marijuana, LSD, methamphetamines, cocaine, ecstasy, molly, opioids, analogues, and more.
At some point, the military is going to have to reconcile the fact that marijuana is legal in about 29 states right now. That’s not to say that there is no good reason to prohibit the use of illicit drugs. However, we literally have Medal of Honor recipients from previous wars who admit they were high as a kite when they committed their acts of gallantry. When we have looming threats like China rising in the Pacific, we can’t be losing the good men and women that we need for that fight to minor drug charges. Don’t let the military justice system fool you, these charges can be fought.
These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. Perhaps one of the greatest limitations of the UCMJ is that it is enforced with little consistency from command to command.
We’ve defended Soldiers from serious punitive charges and we’ve defended them from some charges that are just downright silly and would never have taken place under a more just command. You can fight these charges and when you do, you’re standing up for each and every Soldier under that same command.
