Our team's combined experience in each of the above stated areas is what separates us from other lawyers and is absolutely critical to building your defense and winning your case. For example:

Military Judge: Only a small number of lawyers ever reach the status of military Judge and our experienced military Judge is the only practicing military defense lawyer in Hawaii to have reached this elite level. This means that Colonel (Ret.) Gross is the only military defense lawyer in Hawaii who knows, firsthand, how a military Judge thinks and what really goes on behind the bench. This unmatched experience is invaluable and provides our clients with the rare insight into what arguments are effective for winning bench trials, jury trials, and pre-trial motions from a Judge’s perspective.

Appeals: Our appellate experience provides the important, and often neglected, skills necessary to build the record for an effective appeal during the trial itself. This is important because most military criminal defense trial lawyers do not handle appeals and they will abandon you if they lose your trial. Our team however, has the experience to handle any necessary appeals. Likewise, if you have already gone to trial with another lawyer and been convicted, our appellate team can review and fight for a reversal of that conviction.

Former Prosecutors: Our experience as former prosecutors, combined with our many years of defense counsel experience, gives us an advantage in the courtroom that allows us to win trials from both sides of the courtroom. It is almost impossible to beat a good prosecutor unless you have previously been a good prosecutor yourself. Every member of our team has previously served as a prosecutor during their career so we know from experience exactly how the prosecutors work and think.

Sex Crimes Defense: If you have been accused of a sex crime offense, you need to know that very few lawyers are willing and/or qualified to take on your case because these cases are not popular and they are not easy. Instead, these cases require an advanced and very specific set of trial skills and knowledge that can only be obtained through years of experience and continuous legal training. At the Law Office of Victor Bakke, ALC., our military criminal defense team has over 25 years of experience focusing on, and successfully defending, sex crimes in the State, Federal and Military courts.

Administrative Action (NJP etc.): For those of you facing military misconduct allegations, our years of administrative law experience provides us with the necessary, and often overlooked, procedural knowledge to effectively fight your administrative separation or other administrative sanctions. We know how hard you have worked and the sacrifices that you have made and we will do everything possible to prevent the military from depriving you of your career or your benefits.

Bottom line: No law office in Hawaii, or the JAG, can match our years and range of legal experience and we have a proven history of winning tough cases against tough odds.

We are available NOW to discuss your case and to explain more about how we can help. Any delay on your part could mean years of confinement, a dishonorable discharge or dismissal, sex offender registration, loss of your career, loss of pay, a negative characterization of service, and many other damaging consequences to your freedom, life, and livelihood - both in the military and the civilian sector.

The call and consultation is free, will you be?
