My name is Stephen P. Karns, and I defend Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen worldwide in military criminal prosecutions and other judicial and administrative military matters.
I am a former U.S. Army Major JAG Attorney and have practiced law for over two decades as a trial defense lawyer. My practice is 100% devoted to criminal defense and military law. I have traveled the world defending service members from military prosecutions, and I am ready to defend you no matter where you are serving: the United States, Europe, Middle East, the Pacific, Afghanistan, or any other post, base, station, or camp.
If you need an experienced, aggressive attorney to protect your rights, I am ready to defend you, whether it is for a Court-Martial, NJP/Article 15, Administrative Separation Board, or other military procedure. If you need representation to get a record corrected, fight a reprimand, or negotiate with your command on some other disciplinary or personnel action, I am here for you. Call me toll free for a free consultation of your case. The military will bring tremendous assets to bear on you as it investigates, prosecutes, and then punishes you for any proven illegality or impropriety. As such is the case, you are well-advised to seek out a forceful defender who will protect your rights and fight for your interests. Give me a call if an experienced, aggressive military attorney is who you want in your corner!
