Military Law

Pierce County, Washington, Military Law Lawyers

At Miller, Quinlan & Auter, P.S. Inc., we know how confusing the vast bureaucracy of military laws and regulations can seem. We also know how disruptive compulsory military service can be to you and your family. If you think your rights as an employee of the Department of Defense have been violated by the government, by your civilian employer, by a creditor, or by your landlord, contact us at 253.565.5019 for answers.

Our goal is to protect your rights, whether you are returning from an overseas tour of duty, currently serving, or retiring from service. Our attorneys have extensive experience in matters that affect military personnel, and their families. One of our attorneys is a Judge Advocate General in the United States Army Reserve and a recognized specialist in the legal rights of members of the armed services.

Our lawyers have assisted clients who have pioneered changes in state laws affecting veterans and National Guard members; they are astute at representing service members needing to avail themselves of the protections offered by the Uniformed Service Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and Washington state law. We have successfully resolved many legal matters for service members in a wide variety of areas, including:

  • Protecting your credit history during and after your tour of duty
  • Ensuring that you receive the full retirement benefits to which you are entitled
  • Protecting your employment rights
  • Obtaining support for children during parental deployment
  • Protecting your housing rights against landlords and creditors
  • Defending against discrimination
  • Protecting your rights against whistleblower retaliation

It is not uncommon for those returning from Afghanistan or Iraq to Fort Lewis, McChord AFB, or Naval Station Puget Sound to find their employer refused to reinstate their job and benefits, or before deployment their landlord refused to return a rental deposit when they left to serve the tour of duty. Perhaps your state retirement benefits were denied based on your military service, or you suspect your rights were violated at Fort Lewis, McChord Air Force Base, or Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. We offer skilled, aggressive, and experienced military law representation, and we will fight to protect your rights.

If you have questions regarding your rights under armed forces law, we have the answers. Contact us to talk about your military law needs. We offer discounts for service members and free initial consultations.
