Legal Services for Military Personnel

Roanoke Lawyer Serving Military Personnel

Representing Military Personnel in Legal Matters

Personal Injury ◊ Criminal Law ◊ Workers’ Compensation

When members of the military are faced with civilian legal issues, there can be many complicating factors. It is helpful to have a former military man on your side when attempting to resolve these cases.

At the Roanoke, Virginia, law office of Charles R. Allen, Jr. Attorney at Law, I represent the rights of military servicemen and women in a wide variety of legal issues. I have been in practice for over 35 years, also having served 3 1/2 years of active duty and 23 1/2 years in the Marine reserves. My experience in the military and as a military member allows me insight into how military personnel may best deal with situations that arise. To schedule a free initial consultation, contact my office or call me at 540-904-1938 (toll-free at 866-698-9125).

My focus is not on handling specific military law issues, but legal issues that arise for individuals who are in the military. With my experience as a member of the military, I understand the specific stressors and issues that servicemen and women face. As a lawyer, I understand the impact that a legal concern can have. It is my goal to put clients’ minds at ease while attempting to resolve their legal issue as quickly as possible, with as little impact on their military status as possible.

I handle cases in the areas detailed below for military personnel located throughout the globe with matters in Virginia:

  • Personal injury
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Criminal law
  • Traffic tickets
  • DUI

Active in the Legal, Local and Military Communities

I strongly believe in maintaining activity in my legal, local and military communities in the Roanoke area, throughout Virginia, and nationally. I am a past president of a number of military-related organizations and am still currently active in many others. I pride myself on my affiliations and strive to stay involved and connected as much as possible. I am active in a number of military-related organizations:

  • Marine Corps Reserve Association, Board of Directors
  • Marine Corps League, former Commandant Roanoke Chapter
  • MOAA, former President Roanoke Chapter
