When You Need an Army Court Martial Lawyer in Kansas

The  hard-hitting court martial defense lawyers at Gonzalez & Waddington have earned a reputation for defending Soldiers at Army installations such as Fort Riley. If you are stationed at Fort Riley and are accused of a military crime, then retaining the most hard-hitting military lawyer can be the difference between spending decades in prison versus winning your case or saving your career. Our military attorneys  represent Fort Riley service members in both UCMJ and administrative matters to include representing Coasties accused of sex assault, rape, and other crimes under military law.

Unlike most civilian defense attorneys or your free Army attorney, pleading guilty is not something we do often. When our lawyers take a case, we compel the US Army to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. We take nearly every case to trial and fight the allegations in front of a military jury.


Our US Army court martial results speak for themselves. The suspected Soldier and his or her well being is our chief concern. Our military defense attorneys keep lighter caseloads than the average assigned US Army military defense lawyer so that we can concentrate on every trial individually. Your case will not be outsourced to a random lawyer and we will not intimidate you into pleading guilty at the eleventh hour. Our court martial defense lawyers have fought Army court martial and ADSEP cases in the United States and globally.

The History of Fort Riley

militarylawyers353Fort Riley’s earliest history connects with the vast movement of Americans that made their way on the Oregon and Santa Fe trails. The United State government built military posts along the busy trade routes to protect migrants and commerce. In June of 1953, Camp Center changed names to Fort Riley to honor Major General Bennett C. Riley, who spearheaded the first military escort on the Santa Fe Trail. After the Civil War, Fort Riley returned to its primary mission of providing protection for commercial activities. This time the commerce centered on railroad lines that adjoined the east and west coasts of a rapidly growing America. The renowned Buffalo Soldiers regiment trained at Fort Riley, as did Calvary Commander General George Armstrong Custer. The First and Second World Wars irrevocably changed the mission of Fort Riley, as the army post transformed into a Calvary school and expanded to account for larger soldier quarters. In 1955, Fort Riley changed its mission once again from one of providing training and education for soldiers to becoming the home base for a major infantry division.

Since late 2001, Fort Rile army units have supported combat missions in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Fort Riley soldiers continue deployment to quell the hot spots boiling over around the world. The most accomplished soldiers fine tune their fighting skills at the National Training Center located at Fort Irwin, California.
