Military Criminal Defense Lawyer
Being convicted by a General Court Martial or a Special Court Martial Martial can be an overwhelming experience leaving you feeling hopeless and alone. You do not have to face this alone, and your situation may not be hopeless. Contact a tireless and caring criminal defense attorney without delay to help you determine your options under the UCMJ which includes a right to appeal your conviction. The appeal process begins when a request is submitted to the Court of Criminal Appeals; each branch, including the Coast Guard, has their own Court of Criminal Appeals. These courts will review the case examining any possible errors, conflicts between the facts, or incorrect sentencing. The procedures and legal issues involved can be very complicated. At The Federal Practice Group Worldwide Service, their talented team of attorneys is very well-versed in military appellate law and may be able to assist you in tenaciously pursuing a successful appeal.
If your appeal is heard by your particular branch's court of appeals and your conviction is not overturned, you may have further options. The United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, often referred to as CAAF, may offer you another chance to appeal. CAAF will only consider matters of law and will not overturn a jury's verdict. The resourceful and confident court martial attorneys at the firm will energetically pursue every available option in seeking an effective appeal strategy.
