If your future and honor are worth fighting for, shouldn't you have the best defense available?

Getting a fair trial may seem next to impossible in war crimes cases. The media pressure to convict can be extremely high. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines charged with a violation of the rules of engagement or mistreatment of prisoners of war can feel isolated and shunned by the system they have dedicated themselves to serving.

You can trust the loyalty, dedication and independent advocacy of civilian defense lawyer and former Marine Patrick J. McLain. With over 30 years of military law experience as a battalion adjutant, court martial trial judge and supervising defense attorney in the Marine Corps, his record of accomplishment speaks for itself.
