Military Lawyer Serving Clients Nationwide

About Courts-Martial Proceedings

When military personnel commit criminal offenses, they face legal action by courts-martial rather than in civilian courts. The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) clearly outlines criminal offenses and their penalties, as well as Courts-Martial procedures. There are three types of courts-martial: general, summary and special. General Courts-Martial are the most serious, and typically involve offenses, which would be classified as felonies in civilian court. Special Courts-Martial are conducted for offenses that may equate misdemeanors in civilian court. Summary Courts-Martial are the least serious of the three and involves lesser offenses that are usually only punishable to pay reduction or confinement for up to 1 month.

Depending upon the severity of the offense and whether an individual faces a general, summary or special Courts-Martial, the following penalties may be imposed:

  • Death penalty
  • Imprisonment
  • Dismissal
  • Dishonorable discharge
  • Labor without confinement
  • Pay forfeiture

Consult a Courts-Martial Lawyer

Because military courts are so different from civilian courts and operate off entirely different rules and procedures, it is important that you work with a lawyer who fully understands courts-martial and military law. As a Commander, Judge Advocate General's Corps, U.S. Navy (Reserve Component), and with over twenty years of experience in this field, you can count on attorney Keith M. Gould to give you the level of legal representation you deserve.

Recent Testimonials


    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”



    “Well, I can certainly say that I am 100% satisfied with the services I received from Gould Law Firm! From my first visit down to my very last, the office staff and the attorney was friendly and very personable while remaining professional & ethical. They answered all my question and never once led me down the wrong path, he & his office were always very accommodating and welcoming to any & all my questions. I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”
