Assisting Service Personnel

Whether you are under investigation for an offence or you have been charged and are facing Court Martial, our Military Law team is on hand to provide you with specialist legal advice.

All service personnel are entitled to free and independent legal advice whilst at the police station or for interviews with Military Police. Our team regularly represents members of all three armed forces, commissioned and otherwise, at police interviews at civilian and military stations in the UK and abroad.

If your matter proceeds beyond the police station and you are informed you are facing criminal proceedings then we have extensive experience at appearing before Courts Martial. As well as being legally qualified, our team members have experience of service life and an understanding of the way in which proceedings can impact on your career.

We will be able to assist you in obtaining legal aid or, where this is not available, we offer a discounted private rate to members of the Armed Services, in accordance with our commitment under the Armed Forces covenant.

We are able to access specialist barristers through our close links with the Courts Martial team at 39 Park Square Chambers and at Exchange Chambers.

We advise anyone facing investigation or prosecution to seek experienced, specialist legal advice as soon as possible.     

We have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and strive to be an Armed Forces friendly organisation.
