The Soldier’s Advocate
American soldiers defend the rights of all Americans and citizens throughout the world. In return for your loyal service to our country, you deserve the peace of mind that comes from military benefits and the justice associated with fair military proceedings. Sometimes, that peace of mind and that justice require the help of an experienced attorney.
At the Laubach Law Office in San Antonio, we represent service members throughout Texas and nationwide in all aspects of military law, including:
- Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) actions (courts-martial, Article 15 actions)
- Noncommissioned officer evaluation report (NCOER)/officer evaluation record (OER) appeals
- Administrative actions
- Military records
- Veteran benefits and all military benefits, including survivors benefits
- Investigations (i.e., AR 15-6)
- Security clearances
- Military divorce and division of military retirement accounts
We are truly invested in standing up for the men and women in the armed forces. Our founding lawyer, Dawn Laubach, has served in the military for more than two decades. Her military service has taken her from serving domestically with the Army 3/9 Aviation Battalion to serving overseas in the Army 4th Aviation Regiment to working in the Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps. She understands military life, because she has been there. The firsthand knowledge of the military we bring to these cases has earned us a record of success and a positive reputation throughout both the legal community and military community.
Representing All Branches Of The American Military
We are proud to represent all levels of military personnel, including enlisted, noncommissioned officers, warrant officers and commissioned officers. We work with all branches of the military, helping active and retired members of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, National Guard and Reserve.
Upholding The Uniform Code Of Military Justice
Both in times of peace and war, military law governs all aspects of a soldier’s life. All active-duty, reserve, National Guard and retired military personnel are held to the strict standards imposed under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The UCMJ details stringent procedures for justice and enumerates your rights under the code. We have in-depth knowledge about UCMJ, common law, case law and the specific regulations and policies singular to your branch of the armed forces.
Defending Our Solders In Court-Martial
If you face the uncertainty and harsh consequences of disciplinary action, you need a loyal attorney committed to defending your rights. A mistake can lead to loss of freedom, disgrace or the heartbreaking prospect of a dishonorable discharge. Supported by our extensive knowledge about UCMJ and our powerful litigation skills, we passionately defend soldiers in disciplinary proceedings, criminal cases, court-martial, legal investigations, detention, criminal and military trials, appeals and the mitigation of punishments.
Advocating For Military Benefits

- Disability compensation
