Don’t Wait To Protect Your Rights – Call Now
If you are under investigation, take action to defend yourself. You need advice from an attorney who has experience with the investigation process and the military. An experienced military law attorney can help you preserve favorable evidence, negotiate with your chain of command, and help you understand your rights in dealing with either an investigating officer or military law enforcement. The sooner you get an experienced military law expert working for you, the more likely you are to get a better outcome.
I am military law attorney Peter Kageleiry, Jr. I am a retired Lieutenant Colonel and Judge Advocate. Since 1998, I have worked almost exclusively as either a military defense attorney or a military prosecutor. I have advised commanders, law enforcement and hundreds of accused military members on all types of investigations. From my office in Virginia Beach, Virginia I work to protect the rights of soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines in the Norfolk area and around the world. I have successfully defended hundreds of cases during all phases of the process: investigation, pretrial, and at courts-martial.
Invoke your right to an experienced military law attorney. Do not give a statement to the investigating officer, CID, NCIS, or OSI. Invoke your right to remain silent and request to speak with an attorney. In most cases, it is not in your long-term interest to give a statement no matter how much the investigator implies that you need to give a statement.
Military law enforcement agents are trained to use psychological interrogation methods against service members. Agents are also trained to lie to service members during the interrogation process. Combined with a tendency to rush to judgment, these interrogation methods produce unreliable results and obscure the truth. Don’t be fooled. It’s not in your interest to give a statement to military law enforcement.
“From the very beginning of a year long ordeal, Pete was on my side aggressively fighting for me. . . . Thanks to him, I was able to prove my innocence.”
Already Given A Statement?
Now, more than ever, you need the help of an experienced military defense attorney. I have completed the same advanced interrogation course that many military law enforcement agents attend. I have also published an authoritative article on the subject — an article cited by experts in the field of interrogation methods and an appellate court. Most important, I have successfully defended cases by revealing the rush to judgment and unscrupulous methods used by military law enforcement agents to manipulate statements.
