Rhode Island Military Defense Lawyer
Need An Attorney To Defend Your Court Martial?
A court-martial is a military court which makes decisions and determines punishments for military personnel who are subject to military law. When a breach of military law or discipline has been charged, the case is tried in a court-martial. In such a proceeding, lawyers for the government and for the accused present the facts, testimony, and legal arguments favorable to their side of the issue. A military judge presides.

Consequences of Courts Martial
Conviction in a general court-martial is similar to a felony conviction. Lesser charges are often tried by a special court-martial which is sometimes compared to a misdemeanor court. The accused in a general or special court martial is provided free legal counsel by the military, but may engage the services of additional civilian legal counsel, such as the Providence courts-martial attorney at our firm. The consequences of a conviction in a general court-martial may include:
- a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge
- dismissal as an officer
