The gay, lesbian, queer, transgender, bi-sexual, gender fluid and non-binary community make up give or take 10% of the United States military population as of September 2021. Officers and enlisted service members are accounted for in these statistics with enlisted making up the majority of LGBT+ members. There may be more than that but this is the number of members who identify. Just as they can serve their country like everyone else they have rights like all other service members. Those are equal pay rights and civil and Constitutional rights like not being discriminated against and not to be retaliated against for any reason. If you are a LGBTQ military member and have any sort of legal need please contact our military law attorneys serving the LGBT+ community nationwide and abroad.
Our LGBTQIA military law lawyers help those in all branches of the armed forces: Air Force, Army, Marine Corps, Navy & Coast Guard. In addition to serving all members of the armed forces they also have the capacity to serve military members stationed abroad and or deployed.
A common misconception all military members have is that they give up all, or most of their rights, when enlisting or entering the military. While you do relinquish some rights in exchange for food, shelter and pay you also keep many civil liberties. That includes the right to legal counsel for most legal matters. Part of that is being able to retain a private attorney i.e. one that is not a Judge Advocate General (JAG) officer. Some of the more common case types our gay military attorneys handle are:
3M earplug lawsuits
AFFF firefighting foam cancer lawsuits
Auto accidents both on and off base
Family law including divorce
Hospital negligence both military, civilian and VA hospitals
Nursing home abuse
Occupational and work related injuries
Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) violations
