Atlanta, GA Military Lawyers
It doesn’t matter if you’re a midshipman who recently enrolled in an NROTC program, you’re an instructor at Merrill, or a reservist at Dobbins Air Force Base. You already know that if you’re accused of wrongdoing in the military, the consequences of a conviction can be life-altering. Even a non-judicial punishment (NJP) can permanently sidetrack your career.
Of course, you need a defense lawyer who understands military law. But you also want an attorney who understands military culture—someone who speaks your language. You want an attorney who understands your rate and tracks your acronyms. Someone who knows why and how Rangers lead the way. The pressures of being downrange. Someone who understands what it’s like to balance life in Atlanta with a “part-time” military career that takes up all of your time.
You want someone who understands not just the law but the repercussions this case will have on your family and career.

Dobbins Air Force Reserve: As one of only nine standalone bases for Air Force Reserve and the home of 94th Airlift Wing of the Air Force Reserve Command and the Hercules C-130s, 94th Operations, Maintenance, and Mission Support Groups reminds us, every day, that the work of the Air Force Reserves isn’t a part-time endeavor. And being a Reservist impacts your life, 24/7. We understand that just as the Hercules can airdrop troops and equipment into hostile territory, serving in the Reserves may feel at times like you are dropping in and out of military and civilian life. Not knowing what happens when you land. Not knowing what happens next. We can help.
NROTC Atlanta: While the universities participating in NROTC Atlanta’s consortiums are so different, young men and women who attend these programs all share a unique bond. You all have the pressures of college along with your military requirements. And how you balance college life and the military falls on you. If you are engaged in any legal issue, make sure you understand how it will impact both your education and your military career.
We advise NROTC midshipmen at all of the NROTC Atlanta programs:
NROTC Georgia Institute of Technology Battalion: Georgia Tech, Georgia State University, and Kennesaw State University
NROTC Morehouse College Battalion: Morehouse, Spelman College, and Clark Atlanta University
Robins Air Force Base: Robins, with the 78th Air Base wing, its 54 mission partners, and Team Robins Plus—the 24,000 military, civilians, and contractors working on base—is a unique military setting. It is a large base with a varied mission and a global reach. The challenges navigating this base and its culture can add to your personal challenges, and we take these into account when representing you.
Camp Frank D. Merrill (Army): As the home of the 5th Ranger Training Battalion and the mountain phase of the U.S. Army Ranger School, Camp Merrill is a hidden cornerstone of the Ranger community. You may be serving as an instructor or staff in the Training Battalion and raising a family in Porter Village. Or perhaps you’re a student attending Ranger School. But no matter what brings you to the mountains of North Georgia, the time you spend at Camp Merrill can define your career.
