Arizona Court Martial Lawyers

Military court martial cases skew heavily in favor of the prosecution. Besides outnumbering the defense team, the prosecuting team controls the calling of witnesses, as well as implements a shotgun approach to filing charges. A shotgun approach means the prosecution files numerous charges hoping one sticks. Our brave men and women that serve their country deserve a level playing field. The Yuma Proving Ground military defense lawyers at Gonzalez and Waddington do much more than make the legal fight fair. Our hard-hitting approach negates the advantage leveraged by military prosecutors.

Located in southwestern La Paz county and western Yuma county, Yuma Proving Ground represents one of the largest military bases in the world. Yuma Proving Ground sits about 30 miles northeast of Yuma, Arizona in the middle of the vast Sonoran Desert. At 1,307 square miles, Yuma Proving Ground provides enough space for the army to test military equipment in a climate that resembles what the United State military finds in the Middle East.

The History of Yuma Proving Ground

The United States Army has made a presence in Yuma dating back to 1850. Fort Yuma sat perched high on a hill overlooking the strategic Yuma crossing on the Colorado River. The army’s primary mission consisted of protecting travelers of the crossing from renegade Native American tribes and violent Mexican bandits. The founding of Yuma Proving Ground goes back to the creation of Camp Laguna and the Army Corp of Engineers Yuma Test Branch that the army constructed during 1943. Army engineers tested a wide variety of combat bridges and amphibious vehicles for deployment all over the world. The army closed both facilities after the end of World War II and then reactivated the base as the Yuma Test Station in 1951. Yuma Proving Ground became the official name of the base in July of 1973.
