Members of the armed forces who face court-martial in military court will have an entirely different experience than someone who is tried in a traditional state or federal court. It is critical to enlist the assistance of criminal defense attorneys who have experience defending clients in military court.
At Frank, Juengel & Radefeld, Attorneys at Law, in St. Louis, we defend the rights and protect the futures of military members facing criminal charges, whether that is in military or civil courts.
Attorney Matthew A. Radefeld served in both the U.S. Marines Corps Reserves and the U.S. Army Reserves JAG Corps. He has a background in law enforcement, and has prosecuted cases in both state and military courts. Additionally, attorney Joseph Flees served in the U.S. Army JAG Corps as a military prosecutor. Both attorneys have served as civilian defense counsel in numerous courts-martials for all branches of the military.
