Military and Court-Martial Attorney

Military Defense Lawyer in Fort Liberty

Experience counts. If you are in the U.S. military and seeking legal help, you need a highly-skilled and experienced military defense attorney to protect your rights. If you have a military legal problem and need an attorney, the military counsel that your service provides may be hard-working and competent but nearly all will lack the experience that a career military defense attorney can bring to your case.

The Richardson Firm is your legal solution to military defense.

Kris Poppe, our Military Law attorney, is a former Army Judge-Advocate who, at the time of his retirement from active duty in 2016, was the most experienced defense counsel in any U.S. military service.

During his 21 years as an Army Judge-Advocate, Kris served nearly 14 years as a military defense counsel with additional tours as a trial judge and military prosecutor. Kris is one of the very few attorneys who has served as both defense attorney and prosecutor in state, federal and military courts and also been a military trial judge.

Kris has devoted his career to defending and protecting the rights of service members like you. If having a skilled and experienced military defense lawyer is important to you, call Kris Poppe.

Proudly Serving Fort Bragg & Beyond

It is no secret that the culture of the military is very different than the culture of civilians. If you have been accused of serious wrongdoing, effective legal representation is essential. At The Richardson Firm, we want to help protect you, your family, and your career.

Don’t let a less than honorable discharge, loss of future veteran benefits, or reduction in rank put your future at stake. Thanks to Kris’s combined legal and military experience, he will aggressively protect your rights and work hard to achieve the best possible outcome.

Our experienced military defense attorney will represent the following military law cases:

  • Court-Martial Defense
  • Military Courts of Appeals
  • Administrative Separation
  • Officer Elimination
  • Inspector General Investigations
  • Board for Correction of Military Records
  • Memorandum of Reprimands
  • Non-Judicial Punishment Proceedings
