How Does the Military Legal System Differ from Civilian Courts?
The military legal system, also known as the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), varies distinctly from civilian court systems. It is designed to enforce military law among service members and is recognized for its strict rules and regulations, which cover a broader scope of behavior than civilian law. While civilian courts use a jury of peers, military courts apply a panel of military officers, or in some cases enlisted personnel, to decide the verdict.
In addition, punishments in the military legal system can include penalties not seen in civilian court, such as reduction in rank, forfeiture of pay, and dishonorable discharge. The legal procedures and rights of the accused also differ significantly, making the presence of a military defense attorney crucial for service members facing these types of proceedings.
With over 20 years of experience as a military officer and 7 years as an attorney, our founding attorney is extensively familiar with the ins and outs of this complex system, and our team can provide a broad range of legal support, including:
- Legal counsel and representation
- Evidence analysis and the development of a robust, personalized defense strategy
- Guidance throughout the court martial process
- Plea agreement negotiation
- Representation during appeals
- Administrative separation or discharge guidance
