We Know The law

Over 30 Years Representing Service Members

Joint Base Anacostia–Bolling is home or work for 17,000 military service members, civilian employees and their families. It hosts 48 tenant units, including ceremonial units (the USAF Honor Guard, USAF Band, USAF Chaplains, the Navy Ceremonial Guard), various Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Joint Service commands and other DOD and federal agencies including the White House Communications Command and the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is located in Washington, D.C. just minutes from the U.S. Capitol. Due to its location and the high visibility work performed at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, its personnel are frequently subjected to a higher level of scrutiny. Legal issues arise for service members (and their dependents) as well as for civilian employees that could adversely impact a promising career. The Burch Law Firm has been working for personnel living or assigned to Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling for 30 years.

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

Infractions which might be overlooked at other locations may threaten an outstanding career. A 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 a military career if not handled property. We help military service members and civilians at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling with their civilian and military legal issues.

Attorney Larry Burch, a former Navy JAG Corps Officer has 30 years of experience representing service members at Court-Martials, Administrative Discharges hearings and Boards of Inquiry, Physical Evaluation Boards (PEB), and DOHA security clearance hearings as well as before the Discharge Review Board (DRB) and the Board for Correction of Navy Records (BCNR). 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.

Protecting Your Rights & Career

Also, we represent service members (and their dependents) along with civilian and federal government employees with civilian legal issues. Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling is located in the District of Columbia, but many of its employees live in nearby Montgomery, Prince George’s, Calvert, Charles, Anne Arundel and other suburban counties. Most civilian legal matters are handled at 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.

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 in a divorce or child custody case so that the service member’s career is not adversely affected. Asserting your rights shouldn’t cost you your job.
