Charged with Officer Misconduct?

A skilled Honolulu military defense attorney can help.

Officers in the military have great responsibilities are and held to high standards. This can often place them in conflict with others in their ranks, causing accusations to arise. These accusations can fall under officer misconduct and have serious effects on the defendant's career. It is not uncommon for these cases to result in an "Other Than Honorable" discharge.

When facing these charges, it is important for an accused officer to understand that they can obtain civilian representation for their trial. However, not every criminal defense lawyer has the skill and knowledge to handle military matters. At the Law Office of Victor Bakke, ALC, our attorney has more than two decades of criminal defense experience and has successfully navigated numerous UCMJ cases during his career.

If you are facing officer misconduct charges, then be proactive about your defense.
