Do I need a Military Lawyer Near me?

 In Blog

If you found this article, you may have searched for “Military Lawyer Near Me”. You may be a military member who faces criminal charges, an administrative separation or other adverse action and need a lawyer to defend your rights and represent you during legal proceedings.

Having a military lawyer near you does help when you need to prepare for a board of inquiry, an administrative separation board, or a Court Martial. However, most of the work in preparing for these events happens remotely, regardless of whether your lawyer is near where you are stationed. The most important aspect of choosing your lawyer is their familiarity with the unique culture and structure of the armed forces. This understanding allows them to better comprehend the circumstances surrounding a case, ensuring that legal advice and representation are tailored to the military context. Military lawyers also have specialized knowledge of military law, the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), and the specific legal issues that service members may face. This expertise is valuable in navigating the complexities of military legal matters. Expanding the reach of expertise outside of a physical location gives service members access to a larger pool of potential representation.
