Attorney Hanzel Protects Armed Forces Members the Globe Over

Members of the United States Armed Forces are held to a unique code of conduct and criminal laws known as the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). In order to be adequately protected from accusations and charges of criminal behavior, an Armed Forces service member will need to retain the services of a military defense attorney that knows the UCMJ inside-and-out. Due to his insight and experience, Attorney Michael Hanzel has become the go-to military defense lawyer for many members of the Navy, Air Forces, Army, and all other branches and offices of the Armed Forces.

Attorney Michael Hanzel has a distinct background in military criminal defense law, having served 12 years on active duty as a Navy Judge Advocate General’s (JAG) Corps officer. By the end of his career, he had become a Senior Defense Counsel with experience protecting servicemen and servicewomen in Charleston, Washington DC, Bremerton, Norfolk, and even Bahrain. He now offers his unmatched service to Armed Forces members all around the world. From bases on American soil to outposts in foreign countries, Attorney Michael Hanzel can be there to protect the rights, reputation, and military careers of the accused.
