Military Law

Cravens & Noll’s Richmond and Tri-Cities offices have a former military law attorney on staff: J. Thompson Cravens, a former active duty captain in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps. He brings a wealth of both military and legal experience to the table.

Mr. Cravens has extensive experience with the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He has handled literally hundreds of courts-martial and administrative boards involving a reduction in rank, to elimination boards determining whether a soldier, sailor, airman, or marine may remain on active duty.

Mr. Cravens has deployed to hostile fire zones, to Panama, Iraq, Kuwait, Europe, and numerous other foreign jurisdictions to assist soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines. Though he isn’t still on active duty, he routinely represents soldiers in courts-martial proceedings worldwide, and active-duty soldiers in civilian courts. Cravens & Noll also offers exceptional representation in dealing with military administrative law and military divorce.

At Cravens & Noll, our staff understands the unique nature of military service and proudly works to accommodate the needs of those who truly stand guard at the wall of freedom. We will set late hours or weekend hours to accommodate you when necessary. You deserve special treatment and the best legal representation that money can buy. Meet those who have served with you and are prepared to protect you!
