How much will an experienced civilian military lawyer cost?


We recognize the sacrifice that serving our country brings, especially financially. Legal services can be an unexpected financial burden that may seem insurmountable. As a result, some clients tend to find the "cheapest" lawyer they can. But you should be careful about making a hiring decision based solely upon what it will cost you. The old adage "you get what you pay for" can certainly apply to military lawyers. Instead, focus on proven experience. Make sure the lawyer you hire has handled dozens if not hundreds of cases just like yours. Make sure the lawyer you hire is the lawyer that will handle your case since some firms farm your issue out to a less experienced attorney within the firm. There can be so many hidden consequences riding on the outcome of your legal battle. Click here to read about those. With so much riding on the outcome of your case, do your homework, speak to several attorneys, don't choose based solely upon cost as some lawyers are much more effective than others! When you're faced with the loss of your job, your freedom, your retirement, even your future, saving money should not be the priority. 


That said, KML recognizes that some of us simply don't have the ability to pay all or even any legal fees. And we believe that they nonetheless deserve an aggressive, experienced, effective  representation. For this reason, we try to waive our legal fees for as many clients in need as we can. 

If you need an experienced military lawyer but believe you can't afford the legal fees, don't give up. Submit the form below and let us try to help.
