“If you play the game by their rules and on their battlefield, you’ve got an exceptionally low chance of winning. Don’t play by their rules. Give them the last thing they were looking for... a FIGHT!”

Early Career And Education

Tim Bilecki earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Finance from Boston College, a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law, and an MBA from the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College. Mr. Bilecki also completed the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program at the National Cohort at Babson College. Never one to shy away from a challenge or a fight, Bilecki took his legal wit to the United States Military where he would serve with the U.S. Army JAG Corps. It was here that he would begin defending miliary service members and winning court martial cases around the world. What he would discover during these early years was that he truly had a passion for defending those who defend our nation. The military asks much of these men and women and they deserve much in return.

Tim Bilecki’s academic journey is marked by notable achievements, beginning with his Bachelor of Science in Finance from Boston College, followed by a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law, and an MBA from the F.W. Olin Graduate School of Business at Babson College. His commitment to continuous learning is further demonstrated by his completion of the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program at Babson College.

Military Career

Bilecki got a first hand look at the challenges facing service members when fighting the military justice system. He served as defense counsel at Fort Cavazos, Texas (Fort Hood), international and operational law attorney at Fort Shafter, Hawaii and subsequently Senior Defense Counsel in South Korea. Making an impact in the lives of service members throughout Asia, the Pacific, Southern Africa, and Iraq, Bilecki acquired a taste for taking the fight to the heart of the prosecution’s case anywhere in the world where he was needed. Even then, Bilecki realized that the military justice system would always stack the deck on behalf of the prosecution from the inside. Good service men and women in uniform were having their lives destroyed because they made some silly decision in a system that feeds off destroying their lives. To truly fight back and save those who fight for our freedom, a decision had to be made.

Tim Bilecki’s military career in the U.S. Army JAG Corps is distinguished by his roles across various capacities and regions. Starting as a military defense counsel at Fort Hood, Texas, Bilecki later served in Honolulu, HI, as both a Special Assistant United States Attorney and an International Law Attorney with a focus on the Asia-Pacific Theater. His military journey continued in Seoul, Korea, where he served as the Senior Defense Counsel for the Army in Asia. During his service, Bilecki undertook assignments in Iraq, the Philippines, South East Asia, and Southern Africa, showcasing his adaptability and commitment to serving the needs of military personnel worldwide.

Legal Career and Contributions

Realizing that it was time for his military career to come to a conclusion, Bilecki had a choice to make about the future of his legal career. Seeing first-hand what service members face around the world, Bilecki decided that he simply could not leave our service members to suffer under the abuse and misuse of the UCMJ. Refusing to leave any service member behind, Bilecki quickly gained a reputation on the civilian side as a hard-hitting military court martial defense attorney. His closing arguments at trial were featured in the 2018 book, Kick-Ass Closings, and his aggressive cross-examination style was highlighted in the National Association of Criminal Defense Attorney’s trial strategy and resource guide. With cases featured on CNN, Fox News, and USA Today, Bilecki has proven he can handle the spotlight of high profile cases.

Bilecki sets himself apart as one of the few attorneys committed to flying anywhere in the world where a service member is in need of top notch military court martial defense. When military prosecutors see that a service member has flown in experienced counsel from the United States the game changes rapidly. Not only is the world his professional battleground, but the world is his playground as he enjoys international travel with his family and an affinity for auto racing and Porsches. Will Bilecki really fly halfway across the world to defend a vulnerable service member? In his own words, “Absolutely. It’s a pleasure.”
