Invariably, there are servicemen and women stationed at MacDill who get accused of committing crimes. Because of the significant legal sanctions that they often face, it is important for any military member accused of a crime to retain a MacDill AFB military criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.

Qualified to represent servicemen and women accused of a wide variety of criminal offenses

The body of law that applies to members of the United States military differs from the laws that apply to civilians in a number of important ways. For one thing, the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) sets out certain criminal offenses that have no corollary in civilian law. As a result, conduct that would be perfectly acceptable for a civilian may result in significant criminal sanctions for a member of the military. Additionally, the procedural rules that apply to military criminal proceedings are significantly different than those that apply in civilian courts. Consequently, it is important for any member of the military who has been accused of a crime to retain an attorney familiar with the military criminal justice system.
