Why Retain a Civilian Attorney?

Owens & Kurz, LLC has the Military experience you need on your side.

Why Retain a Civilian Military Defense Attorney? 

When accused of a crime, it is very common to choose representation by an appointed military lawyer. The reasons for doing so are simple – The attorney is provided free of charge and you believe the attorney should know how the military justice system works; however, appointed military attorneys working within the military's criminal justice system are often inexperienced and are juggling unmanageable caseloads, which prevents them from giving your case the full and quality attention it needs and deserves. These same appointed attorneys need to answer to their military supervisors.

If you are accused of a crime as a military member, you need to seek the immediate assistance of Owens & Kurz, LLC. We answer to you. As experienced civilian military criminal defense lawyers, your results are our top priority.

Fighting for the Individuals Who Have Protect Our Country

Our firm strongly believes that if you have made sacrifices to protect our country, you deserve legal representation of the highest quality. Too many times, military members are convicted of crimes they did not commit. Our mission is to help protect you so you can continue to serve or, when you are ready, can return to civilian life with a clean military record. As military criminal defense lawyers, we give each case our full attention.

After leaving active duty as a decorated enlisted Infantryman, our firm’s founder, Attorney Joseph Owens, served as an attorney for the Department of Veterans Affairs and then returned to serve for more than a decade in the U.S. Military's JAG Corps. Then he went to work for the Innocent Project, defending individuals wrongly accused of crimes before he started his worldwide practice. We understand the military justice system and rise to even the most complex challenges.

We proudly offer you the following:

  • Well-versed legal representation made possible by a founding lawyer with more than 25 years of military experience
