Ventura Military Defense Lawyer

Defense Attorney for U.S. Service Members in Ventura, CA

Because active-duty service members are held to a different law code than civilians, hiring just any civilian defense lawyer won’t help them. What they need is an experienced military defense lawyer. provides our service member clients with aggressive and effective defense counsel for cases that fall under the UCMJ, primarily court martial cases.

Why hire a civilian defense lawyer for military cases in the first place? While JAGs provide representation to those accused under military law, most JAG offices are understaffed and overworked. When your future is on the line, do you want an advocate who has the time and resources to focus on your case? Or do you want someone who’s juggling your future alongside a dozen other cases that week?

That’s what we offer—advocacy that fully understands what’s at stake for you.
