Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 07, 2011
Keyser Law Firm, a premier criminal defense firm, has recently updated and expanded their website and services to include a 25% discount on legal services to military veterans and service-members: http://www.keyserdefense.com/criminal-practice/military-law/. In times of increasing financial insecurity, discounted legal fees for military veterans and service-members can be an enormous financial benefit as they carefully navigate the process of legal defense. As a soldier, officer and lawyer, Christopher Keyser, owner of Keyser Law Firm, understands the complex issues that often surround service-members’ legal problems.
During a service-member’s transition back into life as a civilian, veterans can experience unique problems such as Traumatic Brain Injury and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Research shows that aggressive behavior is more common in those with PTSD than those without PTSD. Aggression and other symptoms of PTSD may make it more likely that a veteran will be in trouble with the law (Source: http://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/pages/ptsd-criminal-behavior.asp). Sometimes Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD, as well as other health problems acquired during service, can lead a veteran to drug and alcohol abuse or to behaviors that have criminal consequences. Depending on the charges, a conviction can have a disastrous effect on a service-member's military career. Certain criminal convictions often lead to court-martials or an administrative separation from the military.
Article 15 vs. court martial? Acromyns such as UCMJ, OTH, BCD, ELS? Whatever the legal issue a veteran faces, having an experienced attorney who understands military justice is key. Retaining a criminal defense attorney who is also a Judge Advocate dramatically increases the chances of having a successful legal outcome.
“As an officer and judge advocate with the U.S. Army Reserve Legal Command, I understand the sacrifices our service-members and their families make on a daily basis. Offering reduced cost legal services to our military family is one small way I can show my appreciation and admiration.” - Christopher W. Keyser, attorney
As a criminal defense law firm, Keyser Law Firm also specializes in immigration law. As an immigration attorney and Judge Advocate, Christopher Keyser has work experience with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Immigration Courts. Qualifying for citizenship by naturalization through military service and expedited naturalization or overseas processing for spouses and children are just a few of the things that can be accomplished with the right military legal aid.
Keyser Law Firm believes in taking care of military families. Christopher Keyser is committed to helping veterans and servicemembers. Mr. Keyser volunteers with the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV), an organization dedicated to helping veterans gather and receive information and assistance from multiple agencies at one time. (For more information on this program go to: http://www.mac-v.org/standdown.html).
Criminal Defense Attorney Christopher Keyser is the owner of Keyser Law Firm, a Minneapolis based law firm focusing on criminal and immigration law.

Keyser Law Firm continues to offer free case evaluations and consultations and is now pleased to offer reduced cost legal services to any military service-member or veteran throughout Minnesota.
