What should I do if I am facing a court-martial?

Posted by: William Cassara On: December 31st, 2011

Contact your base defense counsel. In the Army, it is the Trial Defense Service. In the Air Force, it is the Area Defense Counsel. In the Navy it is the Legal Services Office. Do not speak to anyone except your attorney about the substance of your case. In particular, do not speak to co-workers, military investigators or your chain of command about the charges of which you are suspected.

You should consider whether you want to retain civilian counsel to represent you. Every case is different, and some lawyers are more experienced at certain types of cases than others. Military defense counsels tend to carry heavier case loads than civilians, and it may be in your best interest to consult with civilian defense counsel.

To discuss the specifics of your case, contact Mr. Cassara for a free and confidential consultation.
