Don't Lose Hope
When Everyone Else Walks Out On You, We Walk In

Going against the Federal government can be intimidating, and navigating the complex military justice system can feel overwhelming. Through extensive interviews, deep research, and a belief that there's always another option, we help our clients resolve their legal trouble so they can get back to living the life of freedom they fought so hard to give others. 

The Team. The Experience. The Connections.

We'll Take Your Case As Far As Necessary.

In-Depth Military Experience

We didn't just serve in the military, we deployed overseas and know the ins and outs of today's modern military justice system. 

Investigative Capabilities

We uncover evidence few people can access by using today's war-fighting technology, namely biometrics and top-tier professional investigators.

Well-Connected Action Takers

We know the key players, how to secure the witnesses, argue your case in court, and (if necessary) do a full-frontal media campaign. We're doers, not talkers.

A corrupt police station accused me of something I didn't do. I had to quickly prove I was innocent. Not knowing what to do, I turned to Mr. Maher. He proved my innocence and because of him I have my job, and my freedom.

My first attorney treated my case as an afterthought; I felt like a bother to her. With Mr. Maher, I felt like I was finally heard, understood and represented! He gave my case his full attention and his work yielded my best possible outcome.

Most attorneys talk big but then hand your case off to a junior partner or law clerk. With John, you can expect his close personal attention. If you were my friend or family in the most dire of straits, he is the attorney I would recommend.
