When you face charges for an offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), your freedom and future is at stake. While the United States government makes every effort to provide you with adequate legal counsel, there is no substitute for an experienced, dedicated military defense attorney.
At The Law Office of Philip D. Cave, my clients receive the benefit of more than 35 years of legal experience focused exclusively on military law and security clearance issues. My legal career began while I was an active duty Navy judge advocate. I served two tours at the Naval Legal Service Office (NLSO) in Norfolk, Virginia. Following my military service, I went into private practice where I have continued my work on behalf of current and former U.S. military personnel.An Experienced International Military Defense Lawyer
I am self-employed as a sole practitioner. My practice is limited to military law and security clearance law issues. I travel the world to any location where there is a military base or U.S. military personnel assigned for my trial cases and administrative hearings. In my practice about two-thirds of my time is taken with litigating courts-martial (criminal trials), usually to a members panel (jury). A portion of my practice relates to appellate litigation, a portion relates to administrative law issues incident to military service, and a portion to security clearance litigation.
When you hire my law firm, you hire me. I handle every aspect of your case personally. When you have questions, I will be the person who answers them. If there is a hearing or other appearance that needs to happen during the course of your case, I will be the person next to you. I gain a complete understanding of the issues you are facing and develop an effective solution that protects your interests. Learn More In A Free Initial Consultation.
