Katie Cherkasky Joins Cherkasky Law
I am thrilled to announce that my wife is the newest member of Cherkasky Law, LLC. After separating from the United States Air Force JAG Corps recently, she has already started to dominate as one of your best military defense lawyers today.
Katie’s background is sure to impress. She was the #1 graduate of her law school class and continued her dominance in her time as a JAG. Frequently ranked “the best” by her peers, bosses, and commanders, she has a disposition and intelligence that will dominate any sticky situation. This is not your normal “husband-wife duo”. Katie has the experience to do everything and more than what Cherkasky Law was capable of before she came aboard.
Winning an Article 15 Drug Case
In her first few weeks on the job she nailed her challenges. We will write in the near future about the difficult decision to accept an Article 15 for drug use, or turn down an Article 15 and demand trial by court-martial. Just this past week, Katie had a client decide to accept the Article 15 and try to convince the commander to find her not guilty. A finding of not-guilty occurs in less than 5% of cases and even less in drug cases. Katie was able to actually convince a battalion commander to find her E-5 (SGT) client NOT GUILTY of wrongful use of drugs. An amazing victory and one that certainly cannot be guaranteed in future cases because every case is different.
Katie’s focus at Cherkasky Law will be fighting the most complex legal issues, navigating daunting administrative proceedings, and in court advocacy that will knock the socks off uniformed counsel.
A Female Civilian Military Defense Attorney — Like None Other
Cherkasky Law has become one of the largest military defense law firms out there, and Katie brings something none of those firms have — a female former JAG focused exclusively on military defense. Katie has been to the bars at 2AM, she knows what it means for women to have personal responsibility for their decisions, and she knows how to convince a jury that an accuser is lying. Take one look at her photo or watch the video she’ll be posting soon, and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Katie Cherkasky is Your Best Military Defense Attorney!!!
