A History of Success

Learn more about his military law accomplishments here and rest assured that you have chosen the best in The Military Defender. We've been doing Military Upgrades for over 30 years! It's one of our specialities! We have experienced personnel and medical experts on staff, particularly for veterans suffering from PTSD. 
Military Law Professional
Of course, our men and women serving in our armed forces around the world are top notch lawyers and give great legal advice. However, there are cases and times when the legal counsel that you receive is not going to be the best legal counsel you can receive. Don't just rely on those who are fighting for you and hoping to interpret the law, why not go into your legal challenges with someone who helped write the law? Judge Kastl is a lifelong military veteran and has decades of experience interpreting military law, writing military laws, and deciding military cases. Don't go into your case unarmed or under represented legally. 
Areas Served
Ret Judge Wayne Kastl has served his country and his clients all over the world. Our firms main office is located in Bethesda Maryland, just minuted from Washington DC. He has served clients in all branches of the military, and many cases might be like yours. Click here to see where he's defended clients in the USAF, here for US Army, and here for the US Navy.

There are few military attorneys in the world who have as much experience as Mr. Kastl. Don't go it alone or with someone appointed to you. Hire the best representation you can have, this is YOUR career. Nothing is more important.

Senior Judge Wayne Kastl writes with wit and authority. When an area of the law needs clarification, his opinions become a learning clinic for younger attorneys. I've known of his demonstrated talents as a teacher and coach for years. At a recent judicial conference, his presentation to fellow appellate judges drew rave reviews. I have it on good authority that the Army JAG School agrees -- there are 'four judges' whose opinions are studied with intense interest. Three of them are at the Court of Military Appeals. Judge Kastl is the fourth.
