When you are arrested for a serious offense as an enlisted military personnel, you need to contact an experienced and aggressive defense attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, you could potentially be facing very serious penalties for the crimes against you and be forced to forfeit pay and face confinement. At the firm of Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law, you can rest assured that your case will be in good hands. With the retention of Attorney Jordan, your case will be immediately investigated, evidence will be challenged and witnesses will be cross-examined. The moment you are arrested, you need to retain the guidance of Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law.

The maximum amount of time that you can receive in confinement due to a special court martial hearing is one year; however, you can still be forced to forfeit at least two-thirds of your pay and could potentially be reduced to an E-1 pay grade. This reduction could set you and your career back years and cause other major complications such as a forced bad-conduct discharge from your service time. Being found guilty of a crime in a special court martial hearing is similar to a civilian misdemeanor criminal trial and a guilty verdict will also deprive you of benefits. When you are summoned to a special court martial, you can retain the representation of a civilian military lawyer who will then determine if a trial by members or judge will be best for your case.


At our firm, we are determined to ensure that your side of the story is heard. Each case has a prosecuting side and a defense side and we will work diligently to ensure that your case is actively defended and your rights protected. When you work with Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law, we will examine all evidence used against you and protect you from harsh penalties. Most commonly, crimes of desertion, drug use and disobeying orders are given a special court martial summons.

If you know that you will be facing a court martial hearing, you need to immediately contact Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law right away and speak with a trusted military defense lawyer now!
