Being charged with a crime in the military is one thing. Facing that crime alone and thousands of miles from your home, your family, and your friends are far worse. If you or a loved one is being accused of criminal offenses in Hawaii, Mainland Japan, Okinawa, South Korea or anywhere in the world, then the first call you need to make is an aggressive and experienced court-martial lawyer.
The stakes could not be higher. Every moment you delay gives law enforcement and military prosecutors more time to discover incriminating evidence, source new witnesses and put pressure on you to confess your alleged crimes.
And it only gets worse from there.
- Few military defense attorneys have the resources to travel halfway around the world to advocate for you, let alone perform a proper investigation. The amount of resources and connections required to do this right is immense.
- Committing a crime in a foreign country can explode in a very public fashion. Commanders may very well pressure everyone involved to sweep the case under the rug as quickly as possible. If that means sweeping you under the rug and into a prison cell, you can trust they’ll do it without giving it a second thought.
- You may face jurisdiction issues where both military law and the legal code of a foreign country are in play. If your defense attorney does not understand either of those with absolute precision, it could end your hopes of an acquittal.

We understand how the command structures work in the area as well as the military culture within the countries themselves.
So whether you’re struggling against a sexual assault accusation in Korea, defending yourself against violent assault charges in Japan, or just need an honest state attorney to protect you in a divorce case here in Hawaii, you’ll find a powerful ally in Bilecki & Tipon.
Are You Really Worldwide? You’ll Travel Anywhere?
