Lackland Air Force Base Civilian Military Criminal Defense Attorney

Providing aggressive criminal defense representation to military members who are accused of criminal misconduct

Lackland Air Force Base is a military installation located in San Antonio, Texas and is part of Joint Base San Antonio, which also include Fort Sam Houston and Randolph Air Force Base. The United States Department of Defense (DOD) reports that the Lackland AFB has a population of 117,994. In many ways, Lackland and the rest of the Joint Base operate as a small city, complete with housing, schools, utilities, and law enforcement. Also like a city, Lackland and the surrounding areas see their fair share of criminal misconduct, some of which often implicates members of the Armed Forces.

When members of the military are accused of crimes, they face not only the legal consequences that civilians face but also additional consequences as well. In fact, the punishments they face may be significantly harsher than those imposed by a civilian criminal court and can also end a service member’s military career. In some instances, servicemen and women will also lose any benefits they may have earned and counted on, and also be required to pay back the cost of any training or education that they received. Fortunately, in many cases, an experienced attorney can help mitigate these and any other consequences of a court martial, and offer a real chance at having the case acquitted, dismissed, or dropped. .
