Wilmington Military Criminal Defense Lawyer

Whether you are stationed at Fort Bragg or Camp Lejeune, whether you are married to a military member, or if you are a veteran in the area, you understand that members of the military family face unique challenges when they are confronted with criminal charges. The Wilmington-area law firm of Woody White Law PLLC knows this because we include on our roster an attorney who is himself a Marine veteran. James Blanton served as a Marine Judge Advocate, and as a special assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of North Carolina.


Because, like you, he has served our country in the military, attorney James Blanton can speak with you about the special challenges facing military families.

Our clients rely confidently on attorney Blanton because they also know that he is a former prosecutor at both the state and federal levels. His experience at the federal level is particularly critical for those military spouses who suddenly find themselves in federal court for what they thought was a minor occurrence on base.

As a former federal prosecutor, he can now put that knowledge to work for you in defending your rights. Our entire firm draws on attorney Blanton's unique perspective in this area to best serve the legal needs of all military family members, whatever criminal charges they may be facing.
