Joint Base Lewis-McChord Civilian Military Criminal Defense Attorney

Defending the legal rights of military members facing allegations of criminal misconduct

Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) is a military installation located in the western part of Washington State near the cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and the state capital, Olympia. The joint base was created in 2010 through the combination of the United State Army’s Fort Lewis and the United States Air Force’s McChord Air Force Base based on recommendations made by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission in 2005. According to the Department of Defense (DOD), the base has a population of 137,490, including 30,590 service members, 52,973 family members, 13,377 civilians, and 31,550 retirees.

When service members who are stationed at JBLM are accused of crimes, the stakes are extremely high. The military justice system moves quickly, and a conviction can often result in an abrupt end to a military career. In addition, people who are found guilty can lose the military benefits they have been counting on and may also face tremendous difficulty transitioning into the civilian workforce. Fortunately, an attorney can often help mitigate these and the other potential consequences of criminal allegations and may even be able to have a case acquitted, dropped, or dismissed.
