Military Criminal Defense: FAQ

Common Questions about Military Law and Defending Criminal Charges

What should I do if I am asked to answer questions in a military criminal case?

You have rights under the Article 31 of the UCMJ when being questioned in a criminal investigation by any agency, including the right to be informed of the accusation. You also have the right to an attorney, and the right to remain silent. It cannot be stressed enough how crucial it is that you exercise these rights when asked to respond to any investigation by the CID, USACIDC, AFOSI, NCIS or other military criminal investigator.

What should I do if I am apprehended?

You have the right to an attorney. The Armed Forces provides attorneys to the criminally accused, but these are often younger, inexperienced attorneys that may not have the degree of knowledge and skill to be effective as a defender. You have the right to hire a civilian military lawyer if you so choose. It is advised that you contact our firm, Guy L. Womack & Associates, P.C.

Our founding attorney, Guy Womack, is a retired lieutenant colonel of the Marine Corps, and served as a judge advocate.

He has served as defense counsel for members of the Armed Forces in locations across the globe, and can respond immediately when it is necessary that you have a top quality defender fighting for you.

What types of military criminal cases does your firm defend?

Our firm defends all ranks of enlisted personnel in cases of criminal accusations of assault, in courts marital, courts martial appeals, discharge hearings, and cases involving drug offenses, fraud crimes, officer misconduct, sex offenses, parole and clemency. We have served as defense counsel in many high profile military criminal cases.
