Charlotte, North Carolina Military Defense Lawyers
People come from around the world to visit the home of NASCAR or to see Panthers Football and Hornets Basketball in action. But Charlotte is about more than sports and barbecue. (Although those are terrific.) It also has an important military presence. The Charlotte commands can seem to have a lower public profile, but the work of service members there can be seen and felt at home and around the globe.

Charlotte Air National Guard: Based out of the Charlotte Air National Guard Base, the North Carolina Air National Guard’s 145th Airlift Wing (145 AW)—with its Boeing C-17 Globemasters—serves Air Mobility Command. Through its Operations Group, Medical Group, Maintenance Group, and Mission Support Group, you are responsible for the strategy and tactics for the moving personnel and equipment worldwide. You handle aeromedical evaluations, and you help people survive disasters at home. As you take care of your wounded brothers and sisters, putting them on the road to recovery, a good legal defense can do the same for you: Put your life and career back on track.
Charlotte MEPS: The Charlotte Military Entrance Processing Station is charged with the processing and screening of recruits. You run the ASVAB, the physicals, and more, to assess someone’s fitness to serve. You administer the oath. There are days when you may have shaken your head, looking at those young faces—remembering your own intake experiences and how much you’ve learned since then. But now, your own oath is being questioned, and you are being tested in ways you never thought possible. A solid criminal defense attorney can help you prevail and restore your reputation.
108th Training Command Charlotte: Perhaps there’s a reason that the stereotype of a Drill Sergeant is someone who speaks with a slight Southern twang: Because elite Drill Sergeants learn their craft at Charlotte’s 108th Training Command, specializing in training Initial Entry Soldiers. As an Army Reserve Drill Sergeant, you know training is about more than running, push-ups, and getting over that wall. The real obstacles are within. And just as you help others succeed, our team will guide you through the military justice process so that you can come out on the other side better than before.
