In the court of law, it’s not unheard of for innocents to end up convicted of crimes that they aren’t truly guilty of. Of all people to land in that situation, the brave men and women who fight to protect the principles of our nation are the last ones who should deal with it. Unfortunately, while our judicial system is a robust and efficient one, it can target anyone — including honest members of any branch in the military.
On occasion, the rights of a service member are crossed during criminal investigations that may or may not have originated as a court-martial. The course of such investigations can unfold into a court-martial in the aggressive warpath of another lawyer or law enforcement agent who is seeking to win their case unjustly. This may also happen when wires are crossed concerning the reasons why an active military member had to follow a particular line of conduct in accordance with defense for themselves or another. This can be easily twisted and misinterpreted in a courtroom, and you should never try to defend yourself when faced with this situation.
As expected of any dedicated military criminal lawyer, our armamentarium consists of highly aggressive and passionate JAG officers and former prosecutors who are seasoned with over 50 years of countless battles in the courtroom to defend the rights of our national defenders in the face of unjust prosecution. It isn’t just a job to us — it’s our civil duty, and we genuinely believe in the highest motives of our clients when representing them in the court of law. You’re not in this alone — united we stand.
Hiring a Private Military Criminal Lawyer
It’s important to understand that while the judge advocate will appoint a free JAG lawyer in your defense, a serious case will benefit more from hiring a civilian military lawyer. Choosing your own JAG lawyer in this sense will ensure that whoever defends you will do so without the connotation of manipulated volition. Keep in mind that free lawyers are also not typically experienced in their field and are elected only to fill the minimum requirements in your defense; while they can effective, they’re not optimal when handling serious cases.
Our JAG lawyers and former prosecutors know the system inside and out, including the military branches and their codes of conduct. They’ve been in your shoes and contended with these situations before, or they’ve been involved in these situations from other angles of perspective. As a result, they have a comprehensive and decades-long understanding of the how and why of the prosecution and where it falls short. This is the type of knowledge and experience you would expect from hiring a private military criminal lawyer, and it’s a very good reason to elect one of our own attorneys instead of settling for the one who is appointed to you.
Keep in mind that as with any top-notch lawyer who represents you in these cases, our JAG attorneys are versed in defending service members from accusations pertaining to a wide spectrum of crimes. A free JAG lawyer who’s been appointed to you by the judge advocate may not have the necessary experience in dealing with certain criminal cases, and may moreover lack the oomph needed in a courtroom setting that asserts confidence in your defense.
With that said, there are many cases that an effective JAG lawyer has to account for when defending a military service member, such as:
• Violent Crimes
• Fraud, including BAH and Travel Fraud
• Sexual Assault, Article 120 UCMJ, Child Sex Crimes and Pornography
• Drug offenses, Drug Use and Alcohol-Related Crimes
• Court Martial and Court Martial Appeals
• Administrative Separation Hearings
• Military AWOL and Desertion
• Leaving Command
The military criminal lawyers here at Spodek Law Group are fully versed in dealing with these cases and can recite the law inside and out in your defense, no hesitation and no skipping beats. Where a typical lawyer will more than likely be an 0-3 who’s dealing with a military judge and other members of the court who are 0-6’s, you can be assured that the standing of a committed and private military criminal lawyer will keep the claimants’ allegations at bay.
