Special considerations for military families and servicepeople

Every division of the armed forces has a creed. The Soldier’s Creed – the standard by which members of the U.S. Army are expected to live – says, “I will never accept defeat. I will never quit. I will never leave a fallen comrade. I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.”

We may not be soldiers, but we take that creed to heart. Firm founder Mary Beth Harrell is an Army wife and an Army mom: she knows firsthand what military families go through when their loved ones are serving the country. She also knows just how much you stand to lose over one mistake. We all do. And we’ve saved some families and some careers over our years because we truly understand what’s at stake for you.

Whether you have been charged with a crime while outside of a military installation like Fort Hood or after retiring from service, or are dealing with the ramifications of deployment while going through a divorce, we can help.

We’re ready for the fight. Call us today.
