We recognize the sacrifice of our service members and their families.

We believe in them and–whether they are unjustly accused or they made a mistake–we believe they all deserve the best, most aggressive legal defense.

“Thank you for caring so much about my husband and our family, when it seemed like no one ever would again.” Spouse of Client, 2003

Don chose to recently retire (November 2020) from the Navy to help provide that defense. Our mission at King Military Law is to provide legal services to as many active duty service members in need as we can. For that reason, we are committed to overcoming financial hurdles to getting the legal defense you or your loved one deserves. This includes offering payment plans, reduced fees, or even pro-bono services to those in dire need, especially junior service members. If you or a loved one are in need of a military lawyer but are unable to afford one, reach out to us–we’ll discuss your case with you for free and do everything we can to ensure you get the help you need.

Don and the other military attorneys at King Military Law have either retired after at least twenty years as a military lawyer or are still in the reserves and practicing military law actively. We have attorneys in San Diego, Japan, on the East Coast, in the Northwest, and even in Colorado, allowing us to minimize travel costs for our clients. One of our attorneys recently retired from DOHA, the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals, where he represented the government in Security Clearance hearings–JUST what you need if you are facing a security clearance issues. Our attorney in Japan is a retired O6 military Judge and former Commanding Officer of all defense attorneys in Japan. He represented all senior officers in the AOR in matters ranging from inspector general complaint, relief of command or duty, NJP, and even allegations at courts martial. And, regardless of which attorney assists you, you get the combined experience of ALL of them, meaning our team brings nearly one hundred years of military law experience to your legal issue! Don stays involved in every case and makes sure you and your loved ones understand the process every step of the way. Moreover, because we actively network with other experienced civilian military lawyers—if our firm is unable to represent you, we may be able to help you find someone who can.

In short, if you’re in need, don’t give up. Give us a call and let us try to help!


Military legal difficulties bring an enormous amount of stress and anxiety. Don knows, he’s been representing clients in difficult circumstances for decades and stays in touch with many of them. And one thing is sure–IT’S ALWAYS GOTTEN BETTER, even if you can’t imagine that now in the fog of the unknown. 

If you or your loved one needs it, please let someone help: Military Suicide Crisis Line 800-273-8255 or text “help” to 838255.

Don is the guy you want in your corner. When you are up against the resources of the military and government in general, it can be overwhelming. The military JAGs who may eventually get to defend you do their best, but they are often overrun with cases and can only represent you after you’ve been officially been informed that you’re going to court-martial or administrative separation board.I won’t go into too many details about my specific situation, but Don’s vast experience as a prior judge and JAGC CAPT, his knowledge of the law and particular the UCMJ, and quite frankly, his connections to those in the military legal circles, may have saved my career.Do yourself a favor and call King Military Law for a free consultation. Especially if you think things are going to go sideways (like they did in my case), you should give serious consideration toward hiring an attorney.I’ll end with this since I’m being vague. My situation ended in an outcome that the JAGs were flabbergasted by. I had to make some financial sacrifices to hire this warrior but it was well worth it in the end. The resolution to my situation was fair and equitable, and that’s all I could hope for in the beginning.Thanks Don, and keep fighting the good fight.

Don King is a man of integrity, professionalism, and work ethic. He worked tirelessly on my case and was always available for my questions. He made sure that I was well informed on the entire situation and all outcomes. I am thankful that I had Don King on my case, and I would give him the highest recommendation to anyone in need.

We only had a Brief conversation. But within those few minutes, He made me smile with relief. He gave me better advice then three lawyers a jag and legal on my ship. I got hit with article 112a, when my ship found a dab pen in my belongings. After his consultation, I feel like I can put my mine at ease. highly recommend 10 out of 10!!!!!!

If you are facing any legal issues within your command, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Don. He is one of the best military attorneys you could ever ask for. He is sincere and extremely knowledgeable about the military law. I was in the process of getting separated for a pattern of misconduct a few months before my EOS. I felt so hopeless and scared that I would lose all my benefits. I waited at the last minute to contact Mr. Don. God knows that was one of the best decisions I have ever made. He took his time to listen to my issues and told me right away that he could help me. After I provided him with all the information that was needed for my case, he and his team were able to write a very successful letter to my command admiral and allow me to get out with an honorable discharge. The only regret I have by choosing Attorney Don and his team is not contacting them much earlier than I did.Thanks again, Mr. Don. I greatly appreciate you and your team for helping me win my case.
