Why Hire a Civilian Attorney?


Experienced Military Law Attorney Serving Armed Forces Personnel Worldwide. Se Habla Español.

When your future military career and opportunities in civilian life hang in the balance, you deserve the loyal and independent legal advice and representation of an experienced military law attorney who is dedicated to protecting your rights and winning your case.

Unlike many active duty military lawyers who have minimal legal experience, Patrick J. McLain has handled over a thousand cases and hundreds of jury trials, including court-martial involving:

  • Drug possession
  • Robbery
  • Sexual assault
  • Military offenses
  • Murder and war crimes

As a former supervising defense attorney in the Marine Corps, he has the experience to skillfully represent you. As an independent advocate and civilian criminal defense attorney, his responsibility is to you, not to the military.

If your career and your future are worth fighting for, you need the strength and dedication of an accomplished military law attorney on your side. Contact us today to discuss your case in a completely confidential consultation.

Thorough Advocacy in Administrative Proceedings

An administrative decision or nonjudicial punishment can have a lasting effect on your opportunities both in the military and in your civilian career. With over 30 years of military law experience, Patrick J. McLain knows the system and is willing to fight for the outcome you deserve in administrative matters, including security clearance denial, revocation or reclassification, and physical evaluation board decisions.

Delay & Exemption

If you are a member of the Individual Ready Reserves (IRR), or any other Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps or Coast Guard reserves, mobilization may pose a serious hardship to you and your family. Patrick J. McLain will help you seek a delay or exemption.
