Military Lawyer

When the stakes are high, you need an experienced military defense lawyer who has the experience and skill to represent you to the fullest extent possible. For over a decade trial attorney Jeff King has been defending members of our armed services in the United States and all over the world. As a former Marine judge advocate, he has the training, experience, and skill to defend you at any type of military proceeding. Jeff King is known as a fierce and creative courtroom attorney who never backs down from a fight.

Military Trial Counsel

Through this experience as a trial counsel, defense counsel, and legal advisor in combat, attorney Jeff King has acquired a thorough understanding of military law issues and the importance of being the best and hardest working attorney at trial. It is your military career and future that must be protected.

Military Disciplinary Action

Whether you are currently facing a court-martial, a separation proceeding, an Article 32 pretrial investigation, Article 15 non-judicial punishment, or simply believe that you have been wronged by your chain of command, contact Jeff King immediately. Whatever your military issue, Jeff King has seen it and knows how to respond. Contact Jeff today if you (or your son, daughter, or spouse) are facing any military criminal or disciplinary issues, such as:

  • Investigation by NCIS, CID, OSI, or any other law enforcement agency
  • Article 15 Nonjudicial Punishment (also known as Captain’s Mast or Office Hours)
  • Article 32 Investigation
  • Summary, Special, or General Court-Martial
  • Administrative Discharge Board
  • Board of Inquiry (Officer Misconduct)

Article 32 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)

According to the Article 32 provision, members of the military facing allegations of an offense are afforded the right to have an investigative hearing. During such a proceeding, the accused is able to tell his or her side of the story, cross-examine witnesses and potentially stop the matter from progressing to a full court martial. The insights and legal guidance of an experienced military attorney can prove truly invaluable at this stage.

 

However, should the hearing officer determine that the Article 32 proceeding has revealed reasonable cause to move forward to trial, defendants are advised to secure the assistance of a knowledgeable attorney who understands what is at stake for you, your future, your reputation and your family. Military criminal defense attorney Jeff King can implement the most effective strategies available to mitigate the potentially devastating consequences of conviction.

Former Marine and JAG, military lawyer Jeff King

Court-martial ramifications can include the acquisition of a federal criminal record, time spent in military prison, loss of pay and medical benefits, loss of the right to carry or own a weapon and more. The damage to a convicted individual’s reputation can be long-lasting, making the process of rebuilding a productive civilian life very difficult.  Though the resources the military can bring to bear are often intimidating, accused individuals must never abandon their right to protect their good names along with their futures.

 

Wherever you are, whatever disciplinary action you are facing, Jeff King is ready and willing to bring the fight. Often, active duty military counsel are unable to assist you until you have been officially charged or notified about disciplinary proceedings. Jeff has handled cases for clients in the Marines, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard, both active duty and reserves. If you need a strong advocate for you right now, call Jeff or email him from this website.
