Why We Care

We recognize the sacrifice of our service members and their families.

We believe in them and--whether they are unjustly accused or they made a mistake--we believe they all deserve the best, most aggressive legal defense.

"Thank you for caring so much about my husband and our family, when it seemed like no one ever would again." Spouse of Client, 2003

Don chose to recently retire (November 2020) from the Navy to help provide that defense. Our mission at King Military Law is to provide legal services to as many active duty service members in need as we can. For that reason, we are committed to overcoming financial hurdles to getting the legal defense you or your loved one deserves. This includes offering payment plans, reduced fees, or even pro-bono services to those in dire need, especially junior service members. If you or a loved one are in need of a military lawyer but are unable to afford one, reach out to us--we'll discuss your case with you for free and do everything we can to ensure you get the help you need.

One of the ways we do this is by limiting the number of

One of the most experienced Civilian Military Lawyers

cases we accept. If you hire King Military Law, you hire Don and his skill and experience. Don personally works your case and makes sure you and your loved ones understand the process every step of the way. Moreover, because we actively network with other experienced civilian military lawyers—if our firm is unable to represent you, we may be able to help you find someone who can.

In short, if you're in need, don't give up. Give us a call and let us try to help.

And if you need it, please give others a chance to help as well.

Military legal difficulties bring an enormous amount of stress and anxiety. Don knows, he's been representing clients in difficult circumstances for decades and stays in touch with many of them. And one thing is sure--IT'S ALWAYS GOTTEN BETTER, even if you can't imagine that now in the fog of the unknown. 

If you or your loved one needs it, please let someone help: Military Suicide Crisis Line 800-273-8255 or text "help" to 838255.
