Fearless. Valiant. Strong. Selfless. Resilient.
These are just a few words that describe United States’ military members. If you are a member of the U.S. military, you are nothing less than a modern day hero. Whether you are defending our country overseas or are currently serving on post in the United States, we understand that you engage in a daily fight – emotionally, physically, and relationally – in order to protect this beautiful nation.
Lance Wood and Christopher Cazares were also members of the U.S. military, and they wear the same badge of honor that all of our self-sacrificing military members have earned. They are also incredibly passionate about justice within the legal system, and they have dedicated the latter portion of their lives to the legal representation of military members. Accordingly, they founded a firm called Military Trial Defenders, and they are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to handle a wide range of cases.
Examples of their services include: cases involving security clearance suspensions and revocations, cases surrounding senior office actions, and the court-martial defense of crimes such as fraud, theft, war crimes, sexual assault, and child exploitation.
Serious crimes, such as child exploitation and sexual assault, can have an incredibly grave outcome. The chances of this are increased if experienced attorneys are not advocating on the defendant’s behalf and providing legal counsel and strategy.
The Complexity of Serious Crime Cases
If you are a member of the U.S. military who has been accused of a crime such as child exploitation, sexual assault, fraud, etc., you are likely unsure of how to proceed. Navigating the waters of serious crime charges can be incredibly challenging and complex, and it is easy to feel confused, hopeless, and isolated. Importantly, you are not alone. Criminal lawyers are “public defenders”, meaning that they defend the rights of the public to a fair trial. Military trial lawyers are “military defenders”. They are available to defend you when your defenses are down. And they know which questions to ask, which actions to take, and which solutions to seek in the face of serious crime charges.
Defending Those Who Defend Us.
We cannot stress how serious it is to be charged with sexual assault, child exploitation, war crimes, theft, etc. The consequences can be severe, and the trial can be full of emotional duress. The attorneys at Military Trial Defenders believe that those who fight for our country daily have earned the right to be defended by lawyers who understand their military background. If you have questions about this process, don’t hesitate to call Military Trial Defenders today.
