Full Service Military Justice Practice

Military Law: Courts-Martial, Military Defense, Military Appeals & Separation Boards

At The Law Offices of Louis J. Puleo, I am committed to those who serve our nation. Whether you are facing a court-martial, administrative separation board or are interested in appealing your conviction, I provide my clients with individualized attention backed by over 26 years of military justice experience. As a commitment to my clients I limit my caseload to ensure that every service member receives the individualized attention that you deserve.

Our Philosophy

Your case is the most important case I handle. I believe you deserve:

  • QUALITY: Professional, ethical and aggressive legal representation;
  • HONEST AND TIMELY COMMUNICATION: The right to have your questions and concerns answered timely and forthrightly, with an honest assessment of your case and your options;
  • KNOWLEDGE: A thorough understanding of the process, your rights and the potential consequences;
  • DEDICATION: An attorney who you will treat your case with the individualized attention you expect.

I understand the challenges and emotional distress you and your family face when confronted with allegations of misconduct or criminal charges. Choosing legal representation is one of the most important decisions you will make, so you want someone with knowledge and experience, someone who will aggressively defend you and ensure your interests are protected against a system that has the advantage. Importantly, you want someone who will be available to answer your concerns throughout the process and who can devote the necessary time and resources working for you. My legal services are available to any current and former member of the U.S. Armed Forces.
