Texas Military Defense Attorneys 

Aggressively Defending Military Servicemembers in TX

At Military Justice Attorneys, we understand that serving your country requires enormous sacrifice.

As former military officers, our Texas lawyers truly understand the unique difficulties of serving in the military because we’ve lived through them ourselves. Whether you’re a veteran or active-duty servicemember, facing allegations of criminal offenses in the military can carry disastrous consequences.

If you’re preparing for a pending court-martial or investigation, don’t throw away years or decades of selfless service by failing to secure high-quality representation. With over 40 years of experience, our attorneys are well-versed in military law, empowering us to protect the rights of military servicemen and women against a wide range of military offenses.

What Is the Court-Martial Process in Texas?

A court-martial is a military court that tries members of the armed services for military offenses as stipulated by the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Like civilian courts, court-martial proceedings are often complex and require guidance from an experienced attorney with an in-depth understanding of military law. 

Our attorneys can help you navigate these legal intricacies wisely by guiding you through the following steps: 

  • Notification of Charges: Once formal charges have been filed, the military member is notified. It's crucial to seek legal counsel immediately after this point to plan a strong defense.
  • Article 32 Investigation: During this preliminary hearing, the court will review the offense and examine available evidence. A qualified military attorney can use this opportunity to challenge the prosecution's evidence and potentially prevent the case from going to a court-martial.
  • Referral: If sufficient evidence is present, the case is referred to court-martial. Our attorneys can use this pre-trial phase to negotiate potential plea agreements or to further challenge the charges.
  • Court-Martial Trial: The court-martial trial is held before a military judge or a panel of military officers. Our lawyers can present a robust defense to contest the prosecution's evidence and advocate for your rights.
  • Sentencing: If convicted, the accused will be sentenced. Our firm can strive to mitigate the severity of sentencing through compelling arguments and the presentation of mitigating factors.
  • Court-Martial Appeal: If the court-martial verdict is unfavorable, our attorneys can help you appeal the decision in the military appellate courts. 

Securing a reliable defense from a qualified attorney is essential to defending your reputation in a court-martial. Our team can provide crucial support and representation to ensure your rights are protected and represent your best interests throughout each step of the legal process.
