Trial Defense Services Contact Information
TDS attorneys are military officers who represent Soldiers in a defense capacity. TDS attorneys are independent from local commands and their legal advisors. The mission of TDS is to provide defense legal services to Soldiers. These services include: representing Soldiers at courts-martial; representing Soldiers before involuntary enlisted separation, officer elimination, or grade reduction boards; counseling Soldiers regarding restraint, non-judicial punishment, and other adverse administrative action taken pursuant to Army/National Guard regulations. Communications between a TDS attorney and a Soldier-client are strictly confidential and privileged. TDS attorneys do not represent civilians or Soldiers in their civilian capacity, to include proceedings at a federal magistrate court in a military base. TDS representation is only provided to Soldiers facing adverse action under military jurisdiction. TDS Phone Number: 517-481-7985
