Courts Martial Trials
If you are an active duty servicemember notified that courts martial trials have been preferred against you, you have the right to military defense counsel appointed at no expense to you. Additionally, you may have civilian counsel to represent you at no cost to the government. J. Thompson Cravens represents soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines at courts-martial worldwide.
At Cravens & Noll we offer an initial consultation. You will receive a thorough analysis of the charges against you, the burden of proof required and an in-depth discussion of the facts, your story and our view of your version of events.
When you are a member of the military and you have been charged with a crime, invoke your right to remain silent and ask for counsel; ask for Cravens & Noll.
Courts-martial proceedings are unique. The Department of Defense (DOD) has and maintains the authority, indeed the requirement, to maintain good order and discipline and to that end has promulgated the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), which applies to all members of the DOD.
A court-martial is the judicial proceeding, with both military judge and jury as the enforcement arm of the UCMJ. All active duty personnel and certain civilian personnel are subject to its jurisdiction.
