Fort Polk, Louisiana Military Lawyers
In central Louisiana, 8,000 soldiers stationed at Fort Polk work in support of the Joint Readiness Training Center’s mission of power projection and combat readiness. In line with the JRTC’s catchphrase, “Forging the Warrior Spirit,” the fort trains combat brigade teams for deployment.
That very same warrior spirit developed at Fort Polk can rise up and cause service members to want to fight when they’ve been accused of criminal activity or misconduct – especially when the allegations are false or overstated. Naturally, you might think you can defeat the accusations on your own because you’ve got the truth on your side. But it’s unwise to try to navigate your way through an investigation with CID or your chain of command. Investigations and procedures under the Uniform Code of Military Justice differ significantly from the civilian criminal justice system. You need an experienced military defense attorney who understands the UCMJ and culture at Fort Polk to protect your rights appropriately.
