Re-Balancing the Court-Martial Playing Field


There are very few things more stressful than facing a court-martial. This anxiety often arises from knowing how powerful the federal government can appear to anyone accused of a crime.

Whatever your rank, worldwide location, charged offense, or circumstance, your invaluable life, or the life of your loved one, deserves more than just a competent legal defense. In a nutshell, we endeavor to dramatically alter the balance of power in each case we defend.

Beyond our own years of experience in the courts-martial trenches, this firm has been indelibly strengthened by the profound insights of the legendary litigator Mr. David Court. He is universally respected and remains a consummate professional. In fact, in December 2019, the Regional Defense Counsel (RDC) cordially invited Mr. Court to a conference in Garmisch, Germany to teach US Army Trial Defense Service (TDS) lawyers stationed across Europe and Asia.


Military Defense Lawyer – Exclusive


Court & Carpenter PC is “exclusively” dedicated to defending men and women in uniform. The firm and its Of Counsel branch offices are located in Seattle, Kasierslautern and Tacoma. The paramount mission is to strictly defend active duty members facing court-martial, article 15s, involuntary separation boards and military investigations.

Our military defense lawyers are experienced advocates, indeed many of us have previously served as Judge Advocates in the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. Military Clients facing adverse actions have retained Court & Carpenter to defend them throughout the world.
