Military Criminal Defense Lawyer: DUI
Military DUI Defense Attorney
Looking for a military lawyer for your DUI case? An arrest for driving
under the influence of alcohol or drugs can have a devastating effect
on your career in the military, as well as exposing you to harsh punishments. It is a
criminal offense under the laws of the state where you are stationed, as well as being
prohibited by Article 111 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
Depending on the circumstances, you can be prosecuted by the state or
by the military, and the penalties in either case can be severe. You need
to secure the representation of a seasoned military criminal defense attorney
to fight a conviction in your case.

damage to your military record, and we will work tirelessly on your behalf.
The penalty you can receive from a
special court martial or a
general court martial will depend on whether your actions resulted in an injury to another person.
DUI with Injury- If you are accused of causing harm, you can be given a dishonorable discharge,
confined for up to 18 months and subjected to pay forfeiture for the term
DUI without Injury- If no injury was involved, you can be confined for 6 months with forfeiture
of pay and given a bad conduct discharge.
