Representing U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen
Krause & Ferris represents U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen in Annapolis who may have legal issues arising near the naval base or throughout the state of Maryland.
The law firm takes great pride in its ability to work with midshipmen and naval officers. Attorneys Lynn Krause and William Ferris are both U.S. Naval Academy alumni and Mr. Ferris continues his association there in a professional capacity.
Our office is located on Duke of Gloucester Road, right by the State Capitol Building, the waterfront, and the U.S. Naval Academy. We understand that many times our naval clients are not in Maryland while they require legal services in the state and we remain as accessible as possible while you have retained us.
Why you need a military lawyer
Many of our clients retain us because members of the military are subject to different rules for many aspects of their lives than civilians are. Krause & Ferris understands how military life differs from civilian life, and we are able to guide you when you need a legal resolution.
We represent midshipmen when they require assistance in disciplinary proceedings at the Academy or before military judicial boards.
We are able to represent your position and interests from a perspective of experience and with an understanding of what is expected of you as a midshipman, so that we can help you mitigate any potential threat to your career and continue toward successful satisfaction of your responsibilities.
When members of the military divorce, some of the aspects of divorce that may have traditional solutions for civilians are more complicated. Military benefits require distribution—or, at least, accounting—in a way that varies from traditional assets, such as a house or a car.
Members of the military probably have limited time in one spot, so child custody arrangements require more sensitivity, too. Balancing your responsibilities to your family and your country can be challenging, but it’s not impossible, and our law firm is here to help you.
Military estate planning
Just as equitable distribution in a divorce is different, so is estate planning. Our attorneys can help you plan and write a will or set up trusts or will alternatives in order to distribute your assets post-mortem as you wish. We are able to assist in changing your estate plan after a divorce, too.
