Dedicated to the Same Qualities

As the U.S. Armed Forces

Each branch of the service aims to fill its ranks with dutiful and honorable service members. The Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, and Marine Corps are all armed services that follow the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and require all members to uphold the duties of liberty, service and justice. When an enlisted member, special operations member, or officer is in violation of any direct order or criminal law that is outlined in the Uniform Code, he or she will face immediate disciplinary action from superiors.

Depending on the type of crime or act for which the individual was arrested, disciplinary actions may vary. Commonly, less serious military crimes are handled through a non-judicial process, such as an Article 15 hearing, captain's mast, or office hours. More serious crimes, such as violent crimes of rape, murder, or assault, will be required to be tried in a court-martial process. Anyone involved in these types of disciplinary actions should be represented by the trusted military defense attorney from our firm.
