I am a retired Lieutenant Colonel and I served as both a line officer and a JAG. I began my military career as a platoon leader in the 16th Military Police Brigade (Airborne) and 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In 1998, I became a Judge Advocate and since then I have focused on court-martial law. As a result of this experience, I know the military and I know the court-martial process. I have spent well over a decade perfecting the courtroom skills and legal knowledge required to win tough court-martial cases. I have successfully defended court-martial cases all over the world.

If you are a U.S. service member facing a court-martial or adverse administrative action, or if you are under investigation, the lawyer you choose to represent you will be the most important decision you make. Protect your rights. I aggressively protect the rights, freedom and careers of military personnel around the world.
