Reading Resources

I have some links here to reading of interest or which may be of help in your case.

  • Army TJAGSA Criminal Law Criminal Law Deskbook.
  • Electronic Benchbook for all courts-martial. The BB is used by military judges and military defense counsel on preparing and presenting a case, law applicable to specific charges, and instructions given to the jury.
  • Manual for Courts-Martial 2019. The MCM contains the U.S. Constitution, the UCMJ, and rules of practice and procedure to be followed in courts-martial and courts-martial appeals.

If you or a family member have a case on appeal you can find the decision(s) and status here. You can also review other cases which have the same issues as yours, or give you ideas for issues.

If you want history of military law, the Library of Congress has a site with various current and historical documents and resources.

Client Reviews
Many years after retiring from the USN, I suddenly found myself in a very unwelcome legal matter with the Navy. It was a total shock and I was very concerned as to the impact this would have on me and my family. Philip was so helpful, truly a calming force, and his legal help was invaluable to me, I am so thankful that I availed myself of his services! Rob
Phil Cave has helped me through NJP and restoration of my security clearance. He even came to visit me in Spain. I never thought I would work again and he certainly through with advise and guidance that we're exactly spot on. He is my hero and thanks to him I gave my life back... Bryan
Mr. Cave saved my military retirement! His promise to me from day one was that he would fight as hard as he could he right the wring that had been done to me. And he did! I am so very thankful and grateful to him. He genuinely cared about me and made my case his priority. He used all his experience and knowledge to put forth a good defense. I am very pleased with him and will recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney. Crystal
