Attorney James Mackler was one of several presenters invited to speak with the Federal Public Defender’s office and members of the Federal Public Defender Panel. The entire afternoon was devoted to military issues. James focused his presentation on the structure and operation of the military justice system and how it compares to the civilian system. The information was intended to give civilian lawyers a better understanding of their military clients.
James concentrates his practice in the areas of civil litigation, regulatory compliance, and criminal defense where he has fifteen years of experience defending and prosecuting criminal cases at the state, federal, and military level. He also leads the firm’s veteran and military law efforts, helping former military members transition to the civilian sector and representing soldiers and officers in disciplinary hearings. This includes helping them develop entrepreneurial strategies as well as ensuring that veterans receive the services they need and deserve.
