Criminal Defense in Military & Civilian Courts

Norfolk, Virginia is home to the world’s largest naval base. Hampton Roads, Virginia is home to one of the largest, if not the largest, concentration of military personnel of all branches, Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. At George Holton Yates, Attorneys At Law, P.C., I have protected hundreds of military personnel in both civilian and military courts. I know that if you are charged with a civilian crime, a conviction may have a devastating effect on your military career. Even a drunk in public, which is a class 4 misdemeanor punishable only with a fine, can create a serious problem for your career.

I have defended Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, Coast Guard, and Merchant Marine personnel. I have protected the careers of enlisted men, junior officers, senior officers, and flag officers since I opened my law firm, and I will continue to do so.

Are you facing criminal charges in the military?

If you are in the military and charged with a crime, a criminal conviction in civilian or military court can have a devastating effect on your career. You may be lowered in rank, be required to pay a fine, be sentenced to jail and prevented from renewing your military contract, or even dishonorably discharged. If you are faced with this situation, you need a competent attorney who has experience with the Virginia Code and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.


Call (757) 785-0201 if you are military personnel charged with a crime in civilian or military courts for a free consultation.
