Criminal defense for military veterans

The recent Memorial Day weekend gave many California residents a chance to get the summer started with cookouts and get-togethers with family and friends. And many people probably did not forget why Memorial Day is a national holiday - a tribute to those who have served in our nation's military throughout our country's existence. Service members deserve to be honored by the grateful Americans they serve.

However, it is no secret that many service members have a tough time adjusting to the homefront after they return from a theater of war. Many of these veterans experience a disconnect with the people they know and love - people they had no problem relating to prior to serving in a war zone. As a result, some military veterans find themselves in hard positions that may be in part due to their experiences during their service to their country.

At our law firm, we understand that some military veterans have run-ins with the law after they have served with honor and then return home. The criminal justice systems in California and throughout the country are beginning to realize that military veterans may need to be handled with an alternative approach if they are facing allegations that they have broken the law.

Our country has a duty to take care of the service members who have made serious sacrifices to protect American citizens and interests throughout the world. At our law firm, we attempt to position defendants who are also military veterans so that the result in their case will be the best result for the long-term.
