Sexual Harassment Defense: Court-Martial & Administrative Hearings

At our criminal defense law firm, we defend Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines in any type of sexual harassment or sexual discrimination hearing.

We are readily able to represent you before any military court or review board across the country and around the world, including:

  • Courts martial: Those accused of egregious sexual harassment are subject to court-martial. As a former court-martial trial judge, attorney McLain is familiar with the court-martial procedure and the defenses available in military sexual harassment cases.
  • Administrative hearings: Less serious sexual offense cases are handled in administrative hearings, including nonjudicial punishment proceedings (NJP), also known as Captain's Mast (Navy and Coast Guard), Office Hours (Marines) and Article 15 (Army and Air Force).

You do have options regarding the venue (court-martial or NJP) in which your case will be heard. Patrick J. McLain has successfully negotiated court-martial hearings down to administrative hearings on several occasions.

Fraternization Between Seniors & Subordinates

The military often focuses their disciplinary eye on misconduct between seniors and subordinates, including teacher/student, officer/enlisted, or high ranking soldier/subordinate relationships. When a senior is accused of rank misconduct, such as taking liberties with a subordinate, the military may charge him or her with sexual harassment.

We aggressively defend military members facing criminal charges or administrative sanctions for fraternization and harassment.

    "Great lawyer and better person"
    Mr. McLain helped me through the most difficult experience in my life. As a Marine Officer facing an upcoming board of inquiry for conduct issues, I was fearful of losing a career that I deeply cherished. Mr. McLain not only gave me perfect legal advice throughout the process, but also reached out many times to see how I was doing on a personal level. A great lawyer and better person, Mr. McLain helped me become successful in my board of inquiry and keep moving forward in my career. His knowledge and experience are top notch, and his military experience and personal qualities make him the best lawyer out there to defend military personnel. Would highly recommend to anyone.

    "He is a hard worker and will fight for you the moment you choose him to be on your team!"

    My husband hired Patrick for his summary court martial and Patrick and his team were there every step of the way. They communicated everything they needed and were even there when either me or my husband had any questions. He is a hard worker and will fight for you the moment you choose him to be on your team!

    - Angela
    "Amazing lawyer who fights for you!"
    A tremendous lawyer in a time of need. After being accused of conduct unbecoming an officer for personal conduct while off duty, I hired Mr. McLain to help me through the process. He diligently worked behind the scenes to make sure my voice was being heard. Despite my inability to listen to his direction early on, Mr. Mclain was patient and continued to fight on my behalf. Mr. McLain helped me win at a board of inquiry with no other disciplinary action. A sincere man, who is dedicated to his clients. Would strongly recommend and is a great asset to military clients everywhere.
    - Former Client
    "Thanks to him I am now able to get on with my life."

    It took some time to make it happen, but it did just like Patrick said, he is a hard charging guy that can help you get what you deserve, Thanks to him I am now able to get on with my life.

    "I won my military case due to his diligence, knowledge and experience in military law."

    I cannot recommend Patrick highly enough. I won my military case due to his diligence, knowledge and experience in military law. Had I proceeded on my own, I would have lost, for the process was simply too complex. When working with Patrick, there was never a time when I felt left in the dark on my case, nor a time when his assessments and instructions were unclear. Should you be in any difficult circumstance, Patrick will work his tail off for you and keep you clearly informed on the status of your case. Again, I highly recommend the services of Patrick McLain.

    "I was entirely impressed with mclain’s work on my case."

    I called McLain when the military charged me with some B.S., McLain immediately jumped into action and made things happen in my favor. Don't do it alone … your military chain of command will try to make you think that your cooperation will help you, it will NOT. I was entirely impressed with McLain's work on my
