Top Court-Martial Trial and Appellate Defense

We are former JAGs representing service members through all aspects of the military criminal justice system.  If you, a family member, or a friend are involved in a court-martial or have been found guilty at a court-martial, you need a Patriots Law Group attorney to protect your rights. Call today to set up a consult!

Top Court-Martial Trial Attorneys:  As former active duty JAGs, we have prosecuted and/or defended cases of virtually all types of offenses with an outstanding success rate, including: rape and sexual assault, negligent homicide, fraud, assault and battery, dereliction of duty, theft, DUI, drug use, failure to obey an order, conduct unbecoming, and many other violations of the UCMJ.  Our clients include general officers, commanders, senior non-commissioned officers and some of the Air Force's most junior members straight out of basic training. Our expertise and success at trial has been recognized by military leadership, and we've been sent to teach litigation strategy and techniques across the Air Force on multiple occasions in the past. 

Top Court-Martial Appeal Attorneys: We are attorneys skilled and experienced handling appellate cases in the military justice system.  In fact, our attorneys have successfully worked on cases coming before the United States Supreme Court.

If you were convicted by a court-martial you owe it to yourself to review every error and mistake in your case as no one deserves to be wrongfully convicted or more severely punished due to a mistake.  Of course, every actor in the military judicial system is capable of making a mistake and therefore mistakes are common in the courts-martial process.  Our attorneys have years of experience handling military appeals and can identify errors in your case that other, less experienced attorneys may miss.  Additionally, our attorneys have the experience and judgment to help you determine whether the errors in your case are significant enough to justify your conviction being overturned.  As veteran attorneys, we know the cost of an appeal is often paid by family members and friends so its critical that you get advice about whether to appeal from a trusted source.  Patriots Law Group is your trusted source.

Top Administrative Discipline Attorney: Beyond trials, our attorneys also have an outstanding record and extensive experience defending discharge boards, Non-Judicial punishment (Article 15s, Captain's Mast), demotion actions, unfavorable performance reports, investigations, officer grade determinations, and correction of military records.

Types of Cases:  When you are charged with a serious crime, potentially facing jail time and the end of your career, you don't want just any attorney, you want a military defense attorney with a proven track record of winning and who knows the military justice system inside and out.  We will fight for you at every stage and work to save your career, life and reputation.  We accept cases in the following areas:
