I have lined up criminal defense attorneys who have high stature with the prosecutors and judges to represent Wounded Warriors charged with felonies. The hope would be that the prosecutors and judges would listen more closely to highly regarded attorneys and be willing to consider implementing positive handling of the Wounded Warriors in the form of diversion, treatment, deferrals, and like actions rather than an additional disability in the form of a felony conviction.
Here are the criminal defense lawyers to date that are offering to represent Wounded Warriors charged with felonies (with the caveat that their case load or other factors may preclude representation). We will post these on our web site.
