Military Lawyer in Asia
There are few lawyers that have spent as much time throughout the pacific as Cherkasky Law. If you are looking for a military lawyer in Asia, or a military attorney anywhere in the Pacific, we have the experience and credibility needed to provide the best defense. With often over half a dozen trips to Asia each year, we are a dominating force from Misawa to Guam and everything in between. Too often, other civilian attorneys will take a case overseas and quickly realize how far in over their heads they really are. Some treat a case in Asia as a vacation and fail to focus on the case. Others charge exorbitant fees for travel. Yet others arrive and are so confused they spend days trying to figure out how to use a cell phone, adjust their bodies to the time zone, and familiarize themselves with the local area.
Experience Matters in Asia
When you hire a military lawyer to represent you in Asia, your expectation is that they provide that service like they are right next door. Too many people are afraid to even look for a civilian attorney when they are overseas because of the fear of cost and difficulty of transportation. We have a long tradition of charging clients the same fees regardless of the location of their trial. We keep travel costs to an absolute minimum and are able to navigate our way to an installation in Asia without distraction to the case. We are also dedicated to advance arrival and plenty of on-sight preparation. Our experience with simple things, like local cell-phones service, transportation, customs and courtesies, etc., all set us above the rest.
Military Lawyer in Japan
There is no question that being stationed in Japan is easily the most difficult culture adjustment for military members. More significant is the extent commanding forces in Japan have been on troops, especially as it relates to regulations and exercise of military justice. Whether it’s the Government in Okinawa making political steps to remove the military, or commanders issuing ordering curfew, or run of the mill actions that are made ten-times more difficult than CONUS, you need lawyers that understand the uniqueness of military court-martials in Japan. We have had tremendous successes in Japan.
Military Lawyer in Hawaii
Hawaii is often considered a dream location for military members. Often, though, this paradise turns to island fever, bad traffic, and a command that is taking unjust efforts to prosecute false claims of sexual assault. Some lawyers treat a case in Hawaii like a vacation, bringing their entire family and loosing total focus on their case. Others claim to have local offices so they can keep a second home or figure out a way to surf more often. Hawaii is a direct flight for us, and our past success speak for themselves.
Military Lawyer in Guam
Nobody has travelled to Guam more than us in the last few years. We have been to Guam often several times per year, and now the island too well. It may seem like a tropical destination, but too often military members find themselves in trouble with the military. We understand the difficulties of living on the island and balancing the politics of the local government. Our experience on Guam makes us the best for you.
Military Lawyer in Korea
We set ourselves above the rest with a history of cases in Korea being dismissed. Yet other cases from Korea have been moved to a more accessible location for witnesses and the ends of justice. With the speed military members move through their rotation in Korea and the sheer volume of military justice that occurs, you want attorneys that know the history and background of America’s presence in Korea and are able to provide continuity in the understanding. More importantly, you want an attorney that will remain dedicated to your case without concerns of how many other cases are out there and how quickly they will be PCSin.
Huge Success in Asia
We have had phenomenal success in Asia. From Hawaii, to Alaska, to Guam, Korea, and to Japan, we have set ourselves a part from the rest. We are dedicated to going anywhere in the world for our clients, and we do so regularly.
