Military personnel have unique needs when it comes to needing representation. They need someone who knows how to handle cases both on and off military installations.
A service member can find him or herself facing charges out in town (civilian court) but may have the option to be represented and participate in some of San Diego’s specialty courts such as the Veterans or Military Diversion Court.
At the same time, service members can also face criminal punishment via court martial on base. The charges can be brought at the same time, they can piggy-back on each other, or can be brought in one venue or the other. The bottom line is that service members need an attorney who is familiar with, and comfortable with, appearing and fighting in all of these courts.
Renee has worked on MCB Camp Pendleton, 32nd Street, and Miramar in San Diego and is ready, willing, and able to take the government on throughout San Diego County.
In addition, Renee fights for service member rights in administrative proceedings such as:
- security clearance boards
- board of inquiries
- administrative separation boards
- discharge upgrades
- nonjudicial punishment
- veteran benefits
Renee practically grew up on MCB Camp Pendleton working on base from 18 to 28 years of age and is intimately familiar with the military lifestyle, politics, and terminology, as well as the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
Charges in the military can affect service members far more severely than “just” a conviction- they can also result in the loss of benefits earned by tireless service and a discharge rating that can impact your ability to move forward into the future.
