Military Law

Henry L. Hamilton is proud to serve the people who serve our country.

At a court-martial, servicemembers have the right to assigned military defense counsel at government expense, but this may mean the servicemember will be represented by a military attorney who has relatively little courtroom experience. Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) charges have severe implications for a servicemember’s military career, as well as future job opportunities outside of the military. Mr. Hamilton provides knowledgeable, experienced, and aggressive legal defense at courts-martial.

Attorney Henry L. Hamilton has over 35 years of legal experience, including 14 years in the Army Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps. During his service with the JAG Corps, he tried cases both as trial counsel for the government, and as assigned military defense counsel. This wide range of experience provided him with extensive knowledge and skill as a trial lawyer in JAG, and it provides our clients with a distinct advantage today.

As a civilian attorney, Mr. Hamilton continues to regularly represent servicemembers of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps in courts-martial, administrative separations, and a wide variety of other administrative boards. Mr. Hamilton has successfully defended clients at courts-martial against a variety of charges, including illegal associations, fraternization, assault and battery, murder, and drug and alcohol offenses.
