Military Law

 I have  served 20 years in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General (“JAG”) Corps in  assignments in the US and Germany.  As a legal officer with the  military, I was a trial defense attorney and prosecutor, litigating  everything from murder and rape cases to drug offenses for military  service members charged with those crimes.  I also performed duties in  international, administrative, and legal assistance law for the  military.  I performed all kinds of work from negotiating Status of  Forces Agreements in Germany to drafting Wills and Powers of  Attorney for service members.
