Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson Civilian Military Criminal Defense Attorney

Defending the legal rights of servicemen and women facing allegations of criminal misconduct

Joint Base Elmendorf – Richardson, often referred to as “JBER,” is a military installation located in the Anchorage, Alaska area which is the home of several United States Air Force (USAF) and United States Army units. The base came into existence through the combination of the USAF’s Elmendorf Air Force Base and the Army’s Fort Richardson in 2010. The Department of Defense reports that the base has an overall population of nearly 54,000 people, of which just over 16,000 are active duty military. In addition, Anchorage itself has a population of 300,000, making it Alaska’s largest city.

Unfortunately, like any other modern area with a significant population, JBER and Anchorage see their fair share of criminal activity. When military members are accused of criminal misconduct, the stakes are extremely high. Often, a criminal conviction results in the end of a military career and can jeopardize military benefits that have taken years or even decades to earn. Consequently, it is important for any service member who has been accused of a crime to present the strongest legal defense possible as soon as he or she is aware of a criminal investigation or the initiation of criminal proceedings.

The first step in mounting an effective legal defense is retaining an attorney familiar with the military criminal justice system, which differs from the civilian justice system in a number of important respects. As a result, it is important to retain an attorney who understands these differences and has a track record of success in defending military members accused of crimes.
