Military Defense Attorneys

Harris & Carmichael, PLLC, represents active-duty service-members in a variety of settings.  Contact us if you are being investigated by your command, or military investigative agency, preferably before you answer any questions, so that we can give you the best advice possible.  We are ready and waiting to guide you through the non-judicial punishment process, or represent you at your summary, special, or general court-martial if necessary.  

Simultaneously, we will advise you on the impact this could have on your ability to remain in the military, retire with or without benefits, and continue on in the career of your choice, with the security clearance of your choice. We represent individuals at their boards of inquiry and administrative separation boards. Retaining the right lawyer as early in the process as you can is the best weapon you have against your hard-earned military career going up in smoke.
