When you find yourself in trouble, you want to do everything you can
to ensure your rights are being protected by someone with experience in military
judicial and administrative processes. You also need someone that can limit the
number of cases they have so that they can put the appropriate amount of focus
on your case. While many military defense counsel are competent, they typically
are 0-3’s or junior 0-4’s that have not participated in hundreds of courts-martial.
Another possible down-side to a military defense counsel is that they are frequently
unable to turn down cases when their case load gets hectic. Finally, while a civilian
attorney may have the same continuing legal education requirements as a military
attorney, they do not have the same distractions a military member will have with
ancillary training, professional military education, performance reports and other
military related obligations.

counsel, military judge, and prosecutor. He has the experience with advocacy and
