Protecting South Carolina Residents Who Fought for Our Country

Maryland Military Attorney

We Will Fight to Secure the Justice You Deserve

Now, more than ever, members of the military are under strict legal scrutiny. Because of this, there are numerous situations in which a servicemember might require legal representation. At The Hanzel Law Firm, our legal team is led by Michael B. Hanzel, a veteran and former U.S. Navy JAG officer. Not only is Mr. Hanzel well respect by courts across the country and in Europe, he is also dedicated to helping service members clear their name a regain their reputation. We have represented clients and family members in military cases in Maryland and are standing by to help you or your loved one.

In fact, Mr. Hanzel and his wife Lauren founded our law firm because they believed they could accomplish more for military members, veterans, and their families by working from outside the system as civilian attorneys. If you are facing military criminal charges, we can help you obtain the best outcome possible.
