I am military defense attorney Charles Swift. As a JAG defense lawyer for ten years, I have extensive experience representing military personnel of all ranks in cases involving drug use and possession offenses. I have successfully represented service members in more than 40 courts-martial and administrative cases involving narcotics. I understand the chemistry of urinalysis testing, the psychology and pharmacology of drug addiction and the methods used by criminal investigators to entrap so called conspirators at every turn. This knowledge allows me to challenge the evidence at every point of the UCMJ process.
It is not enough to understand the lab procedure for determining guilt or innocence in a military drug offense case. It is also essential to know the rules by which the command and the lab must abide for the evidence to be credible. As a member of the armed forces subject to the UCMJ, you have the right to hire a civilian defense attorney to advise you of your rights and aggressively challenge the evidence that may be brought against you.

It makes sense to have Swift & McDonald, P.S., on your side of the courtroom. As a civilian military law defense lawyer, I am not constrained by the expectations of answering to a chain of command. I can serve as your lead counsel representing you in a court-martial offense, or advise you of your rights and options in administrative and board of corrections matters.
