We Know The law

Over 30 Years Representing Service Members

Joint Base Andrews located just outside Washington, D.C. provides a unique contribution to the country. Home of Air Force One, Joint Base Andrews hosts the President, Vice President and dignitaries from around the world as well as the men and women of the 11th Wing and the Naval Air Facility Washington. Thousands of military and civilian personnel work and live on Joint Base Andrews and often legal issues arise. The Burch Law Firm has been working for the men and women assigned to Joint Base Andrews for 30 years.

We understand the hyper-scrutiny that working in a high-visibility assignment like Joint Base Andrews brings.

Often seemingly minor infractions –which might be overlooked at other military units — can threaten a service member’s entire career. Also, civilian employees and contractors can find themselves banned from the Base or their security clearances in jeopardy. Administrative actions can threaten careers over minor infractions or even mere accusations. We help military service members and civilians stand up to unfair prosecutions or overly-aggressive command action.

Larry Burch has 30 years of experience representing service members at Court-Martials, Administrative Discharges hearings and Boards of Inquiry, Physical Evaluation Boards (PEB Hearings), DOHA security clearance hearings, as well as before the Discharge Review Board and the Board for Correction of Medical Records.

Often our representation at the outset of an investigation (before charges have been preferred), helps keep the case from reaching a court-marital or Board of Inquiry. When a command begins an investigation or brings legal charges against a service member, a civilian or a contractor, it is important to have an experienced and knowledgeable attorney on your side to represent your interests. Larry Burch, a former Navy JAG Corps officer, knows the military legal system from the inside.

Protecting Your Rights & Career

Joint Base Andrews is located within suburban Prince George’s County, Maryland. While there is a small criminal court on base (as well as the military courts), most legal matters are handled at the local civilian courts. Family law issues; like divorce, child custody and support cases as well as personal injury matters (like auto accidents) are handled in the local civilian courts. We represent service members who have cases in the local courts.

Our main office is located about 15 minutes from Joint Base Andrews in nearly Greenbelt, Maryland. We represent service members, civilians and dependents in military hearings and in the civilian courts; including Prince George’s, Montgomery, Charles, St. Mary’s, and Anne Arundel Counties as well as in the District of Columbia.

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.

We also understand the military benefits that a dependent spouse and children 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.



Understanding Military Divorce Law is an easy to read guide for military families trying to understand the many federal and state laws, as well as military regulations, involved in a separation or divorce involving a military service member.
