Should I Hire a Civilian Lawyer for My Military Criminal Case?

Will County Lawyer Encourages You to Have a Civilian Lawyer on Your Legal Team

Court-martial cases are not handled in the same manner as civilian court cases. Military criminal cases are different because stricter laws regarding conduct are applied to military personnel. At Mirabella, Kincaid, Frederick & Mirabella, LLC, we can help you understand why hiring both a civilian lawyer and a military attorney can be beneficial for you and your case.

In the armed forces, there are certain conduct laws that only apply to military personnel. Penalties for violating these laws include fines, restriction to base, prison time, loss of pay, and other administrative sanctions.

Depending on the type of charge or case you have, the government may not be required to appoint an attorney for you. If the government does appoint a lawyer, your civilian representation can work alongside the appointed attorney to fight your case with aggression and effectiveness. If you want to do your best to avoid serious punishments such as life in prison or the death penalty, you should retain our experienced criminal defense attorneys.

If you are someone that has been, or is worried they may receive a court martial, contact our offices at 630-665-7300 so that we can schedule a free consultation to formulate the best action plan for your situation.
