Camp Schwab
Court Martial Defense

At Bilecki Law Group, We believe every service member has earned their right to an aggressive defense on their day in court. We specialize in taking the fight to the prosecution and winning cases that others said were unwinnable.

Camp Schwab History and Court-Martial Activity

Camp Schwab stands as a vital Marine Corps installation in central Okinawa, Japan, home to thousands of dedicated service members from the 4th Marine Regiment and the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion. Despite its longstanding history, the base has become a battleground for increased court-martial activity, particularly concerning drug offenses and sexual assault allegations.

In recent years, Marines stationed at Camp Schwab have faced intensified scrutiny, with many becoming targets of unjust sting operations by military law enforcement. Even minor infractions have led to severe consequences, jeopardizing careers and futures. Convictions often result in punitive discharge, stripping away salaries, healthcare, and pensions, leaving service members vulnerable and isolated.

Navigating the complex legal landscape thousands of miles from home can be daunting, but you’re not alone. Turn to the experienced attorneys at Bilecki Law Group for a confidential consultation and robust defense tailored to protect your rights and future. With decades of experience and a track record of success, we stand ready to fight for you every step of the way.

Combatting UCMJ Misuse

Camp Shwab trusts Bilecki Law Group for court defense

You are here because you or your loved ones are facing allegations of a crime under the Uniform Code of Military Justice or are worried that a Captain’s Mast or other forms of non-judicial punishment will end any chance of advancement in the military.
Bilecki Law Group has been helping service members stationed in Okinawa fight against these and many other charges, and we provide advantages that no other law firm can match. We help you with:

  1. UCMJ Article 120 or Article 134 (Sex Offenses): We tackle challenging cases from sexual assault to indecent exposure, fighting against a culture of conviction without evidence, protecting careers and reputations of those unjustly accused.
  2. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny): From BAH fraud to wrongful appropriation, we understand the nuances that lead to financial misconduct charges and provide a robust defense against oversimplified prosecutorial narratives.
  3. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime): Recognizing the reality of conflicts that escalate into charges, we defend against accusations from simple brawls to more severe confrontations, ensuring a single moment doesn’t define your future.
  4. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes): In a country where drug prevalence mirrors that of the U.S., we defend service members caught in drug-related charges, often stemming from being in the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people.
  5. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses): Facing minor infractions can lead to major consequences on foreign soil; we challenge disproportionate penalties for actions that would be minor stateside.
