Your career is important, and if you are an active service member, facing criminal charges can be detrimental.

While civilians facing charges may be affected in their personal lives and careers, it is often up to the discretion of the employer. For military personnel, however, these civilian charges are taken extremely seriously and can result in a range of career consequences from restricted duty and denied promotions, to dishonorable discharge.

Each state and military branch has its own specific process and regulations, and having a lawyer who is familiar with the differences and how to handle them is important.  Cara P. Oxenham is based in Chesapeake, Virginia, and is highly experienced in Virginia criminal law. Cara will work hard to argue your case with the goal of complete dismissal or deliver the best possible outcome.

If you or another military personnel is facing criminal charges, contact defense attorney Cara Oxenham at (757) 482-4224.
