Worldwide Military Law Practice

Put Experience on Your Side

When being tried in a military court, you need a civilian lawyer. Few court martial defense attorneys have the extensive experience and comprehensive military knowledge of attorney Patrick J. McLain:

  • 20 years of active service in the Marine Corps
  • Former federal prosecutor
  • Former USMC defense attorney
  • Retired court martial trial judge

He will aggressively defend your rights in courts martial, discharges, physical review board (PEB), officer misconduct and nonjudicial punishment proceedings across the country and around the world.

Independent Representation in Administrative Proceedings

Our law firm represents Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who have been disabled due to illness, injury or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and are having a hard time getting the benefits they deserve from the physical review board (PEB).

We have an impressive record of success in helping our clients obtain a delay or exemption if a call up or mobilization would pose a serious hardship to them and their families.

When You Can't Afford Not To Fight

Whether you are facing charges for minor officer misconduct (such as insubordination or fraternization) or you are charged with fraud, sex crimes, drug possession, war crimes, murder or rape, we will provide you with realistic advice about your case, and aggressively defend both your rights and your military career.

If you are serious about your career and are willing to fight hard to win your case, call our Dallas office at (214) 377-1470 (ext. 227) to schedule an initial consultation with a military law criminal defense lawyer. You may also send us an e-mail.
