Bringing our clients top-notch skills.

Gagne, Scherer and Associates, LLC have extensive training in advanced trial skills. We received the highest level of training available to senior defense counsel in the Air Force. Because of our skills and our record of success, we were offered prestigious military assignments, but we chose to leave the military so we could have total independence when representing clients like you.

Today, as civilian military lawyers, we are able to build upon that knowledge with ongoing civilian training in federal, state, and military law.

Why choosing a civilian lawyer is smart.

If you’re facing a court-martial, nonjudicial punishment action, or administrative proceeding, choosing a civilian lawyer can make all the difference. While there are some excellent military defense attorneys – and we know, because we were two of them – hiring an independent civilian attorney is probably the smartest decision you can make.

Here’s why:

Our careers aren’t dependent on the military, so we have complete freedom to pursue justice for our clients. We can be aggressive without any fear of reprisal. And, the military may treat a case differently if it knows it has to go up against a respected and tough civilian counsel.

Our expert training makes all the difference.

Greg Gagne and Keith Scherer have experience and training in forensics, including toxicology, computers, DNA, blood splatter, pathology, polygraphs, fingerprints, psychology, and neuropsychology. This means that if you need to hire an expert for your case, we won’t waste your time and money learning the expert’s field from scratch. We also have a network of experts we can draw from to help you with your case.

More importantly, we know how to cross-examine experts hired to testify against you. Because of this expertise, we have won many victories for our clients.
