Fort Carson, Colorado Springs, Colorado Military Criminal Lawyers


Fort Carson, Colorado Springs, Colorado Military Criminal Lawyers

If you are a soldier stationed at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs and you got arrested or charged with a crime, you need an experienced military criminal defense lawyer. Don’t try to handle it by yourself – get a lawyer who knows how to defend soldiers and understands the military justice system.

I’m going to walk you through some of the key things to know if you need a military lawyer in Colorado Springs. I’ll explain why you need a lawyer, what kinds of cases we handle, and how our defense attorneys can help you. I know this is a stressful situation, but we’re here to help get you the best possible outcome.

Why You Need a Military Criminal Lawyer

There’s a few reasons why you need to hire a civilian military defense attorney if you got arrested while stationed at Fort Carson:

  • Avoid a court martial – If we can beat the civilian charges, you might avoid military discipline too.
  • Understand your military rights – Your rights are different in the military justice system.
  • Protect your military career – A conviction could end your military service.
  • Deal with civilian and military authorities – You need someone who can handle both.

Unlike a military JAG lawyer who works for the Army, our civilian lawyers only work for you. We know how to navigate the military system while defending your rights. Don’t go it alone here – hire an experienced military defense lawyer.

Types of Cases We Handle

At our law firm, we handle all types of military criminal charges, including:

  • DUI / DWI
  • Drug crimes
  • Assault
  • Domestic violence
  • Sex crimes
  • Theft
  • Weapons charges

We defend soldiers against misdemeanors and felonies in civilian court in Colorado Springs. We also represent clients in military courts like summary court-martial or special court-martial.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

Q&A with a Former JAG Lawyer

I know you probably have lots of questions about your case and what to do next. Here I’ll answer some of the questions we commonly get from soldiers at Fort Carson who were arrested or charged with crimes:

Q: I was just arrested off-base. What should I do right now?

A: First, invoke your right to remain silent until you have a lawyer. Don’t try to explain anything to the civilian or military authorities yet. Second, call a civilian military lawyer immediately so we can start defending you. The sooner we get involved, the better.

Q: How is my civilian arrest different because I’m in the military?

A: It’s very different. In addition to the civilian charges, you could face military discipline like a court martial or involuntary discharge. Only a military lawyer understands how to handle both sides.

Q: I admitted what I did to my commander. Is my case hopeless?

A: Absolutely not! Even if you already made statements, a skilled lawyer can often get charges dismissed or evidence suppressed. Never give up hope until you speak to a lawyer.

Q: Do you defend soldiers stationed at Fort Carson?

A: Yes, defending soldiers at Fort Carson is one of our specialties. We’re familiar with the military authorities and procedures on base. Our office is located in Colorado Springs for local convenience as well.

Q: Can I afford a civilian military lawyer?

A: Yes, we work within your budget and offer flexible payment options. It’s a smart investment to protect your future.
