We Know The law

Over 30 Years Representing Service Members

Fort George G. Meade located between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. in Anne Arundel County, Maryland is home to the Defense Information School, the Defense Media Activity, the Army Field Band, and the headquarters of United States Cyber Command, as well as the National Security Agency, the Defense Courier Service, and Defense Information Systems Agency headquarters.

More than 42,000 civilian and military personnel work or live on Post at Fort Meade. The nature of warfare is changing and the personnel at Fort Meade and NSA are at the front edge of this change. Cyber warfare and security concerns present an entire new series of challenges beyond the battlefield. Frequently, legal issues arise for service members (and their dependents) as well as for civilian employees. The Burch Law Firm has been working for personnel living or assigned to Fort Meade and NSA for 30 years.

We understand the enhanced scrutiny that working within a sensitive environment requires.

Infractions which might be overlooked at other military units can threaten an outstanding career. Your Security Clearance can be jeopardized over minor infractions or even mere accusations. Also, service members often have issues in civilian courts that may adversely impact your military career if not handled property. We help military service members and civilians at Fort Meade and NSA with their civilian and military legal issues.

Attorney Larry Burch, a former Navy JAG Corps Officer has over 30 years of experience representing service members at Court-Martials, Administrative Discharges hearings and Boards of Inquiry, Physical Evaluation Boards (PEB), DOHA and NSA security clearance hearings, as well as before the Discharge Review Board and the Board for Correction of Navy Records. Often legal representation at the start of an investigation helps keep the case from spiraling out of control. When a command begins an investigation, it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your side.

Also, we represent service members (and their dependents) along with civilian and federal government employees with civilian legal issues. Fort Meade and NSA are located in Anne Arundel County, Maryland (near Howard, Prince George’s and Montgomery Counties). Most civilian legal matters are handled at the local county courthouses. Family law issues; like divorce, child custody and support cases as well as personal injury matters (like auto accidents) are heard in the local civilian courts.

Protecting Your Rights & Career

We have been representing service members, civilians and dependents in the local civilian courts; including Prince George’s, Montgomery, Howard and Anne Arundel Counties and in the District of Columbia as well as providing representation before the military courts and Administrative Boards. We are sensitive to the impact civilian cases can have on a client’s military or federal government career. We seek to minimize the blow-back from a divorce or child custody case. Asserting your rights shouldn’t cost you your job. We also understand the military benefits that military dependents are entitled to through the courts as well as under the military dependent support regulations — both before and after divorce. We earn our living practicing law on behalf of military service members and their dependents as well as contractors and federal government employees. We can help you with your military legal issues.
