Whether you’re a veteran or active-duty servicemember, facing allegations of criminal offenses in the military can carry disastrous consequences.

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.
