New York Military Law Attorney
West Point Criminal Defense Lawyer
At the Law Office of Mark J. Sacco we understand that a criminal conviction can have a catastrophic impact on your military career above and beyond the criminal penalties. For civilians, facing criminal charges covered by military law can be much more threatening than a standard criminal case, and those charges are tried under rules and procedures that are unfamiliar.
A former lawyer in the military’s criminal justice system, the Judge Advocate General (JAG) corps, as well as a former Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, attorney Mark J. Sacco represents members of the armed forces who are accused of military offenses, those who are facing criminal charges related to off-base incidents, and civilians accused of criminal behavior on military property.
Our law firm handles military law cases before any military justice tribunal, including officers’ Boards of Inquiry, Administrative Separation Boards, and summary, special and general courts-martial.
Former Marine | Attorney Experienced in Military Law Defense
Military law can apply to any crime. This includes violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice as well as criminal offenses generally charged under the state and local penal codes. Cases charged under military law can also include nuances that pertain to military service, such as a charge of conduct unbecoming an officer, if the officer has been accused of assault.
If you are facing charges in a military court or are a service member facing civilian criminal charges, it is essential to have a defense lawyer who understands how military courts work and also how a civilian offense can affect your military record.
Attorney Mark J. Sacco has tried cases in military courts-martial and has a full understanding of military law, the Military Rules of Evidence, and the Punitive Articles. He has the experience to protect your rights.
