If you serve in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, or Coast Guard and you have been accused of criminal wrongdoing, please connect with the Federal Practice Group immediately. As a member of the U.S. Armed Forces, your alleged criminal wrongdoing will not be investigated by a civilian prosecutor, nor will you be tried for your alleged offenses in a civilian criminal court. Instead, your situation will be investigated by a service office unique to your branch of service and you’ll be tried by a military court. As a result, you won’t be able to hire any reputable criminal defense attorney that pops up on a Google search. You’ll need to work with a reputable military criminal defense attorney. Thankfully, our firm employs reputable experienced attorneys who can aggressively defend your rights and interests moving forward.
One of the reasons why it is critical to connect with a Fort Hood military attorney at our firm as soon as you possibly can is that it takes time to build a strong defense to criminal accusations. Failure to treat your situation with the seriousness and urgency that it deserves could result in imprisonment, fines, dishonorable discharge, lowered rank, loss of ability to own firearms, etc. Now is the time to start building the strongest possible defense to the charges against you.
Your service branch will determine which service will handle the criminal investigation into the alleged wrongdoing you have committed. Coast Guard criminal investigations are managed by Coast Guard Investigative Services (CGIS). Navy criminal investigations are managed by Naval Criminal Investigative Services (NCIS). Air Force criminal investigations are managed by the Office of Special Investigations (OSI). And both Army and Marines criminal investigations are managed by Criminal Investigation Command (CID)
Each of these services approaches the process of criminal investigation in varied ways. As a result, it is important to work with an attorney who has extensive experience defending servicemembers from your branch of service against accusations of criminal wrongdoing. The Federal Practice Group has such extensive experience as it pertains to each of the service branches. Therefore, no matter where you serve and what charges you may be facing, we can help.
If you are a servicemember and you have been accused of criminal wrongdoing, it is time to connect with the experienced Washington, D.C. military legal team at Federal Practice Group.

Acting quickly can ultimately mean the difference between a favorable outcome to your case and one that could alter your entire life.
The potential consequences associated with a criminal conviction of a servicemember can affect everything from one’s livelihood to one’s personal freedom.
