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.
