Military Criminal Defense DETERMINED TO FIGHT FOR YOU

Honolulu Military Criminal Defense Lawyer

Representing Service Members in Oahu

If you are a service member that has been accused of committing a criminal offense, then you may have a lot to lose. A criminal conviction could mean civilian penalties in addition to penalties from your branch of service. Your legal defender could have a large impact on the outcome of your case, so make sure you obtain counsel from an experienced Honolulu criminal defense advocate from my firm. At the Law Office of Steve Cedillos, I handle a wide range of criminal case for military members.

Don't risk a dishonorable or a bad conduct discharge, as there are serious consequences. In addition to losing your job, you may no longer be eligible to receive wages, pensions and other forms of military assistance. We can represent your rights at a discharge hearing or a general court martial.

With over two decades of experience, you know that you can trust me to competently handle your situation. Call (808) 201-0496 for a free case evaluation.

Why Hire Private Representation?

While you may obtain military defense counsel, it is beneficial for you to hire your own private counsel. That way you have an attorney who is employed by you alone and working only for you. In addition, our office has over 25 years of experience handling courts martials from general court martials for very serious felonies on down through summary offenses. Put your future in the hands of someone who has successfully defended service members of the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force. My firm will commit itself solely to your cause and will do everything possible to get a favorable verdict.

    "Would I hire him again? Absolutely."
    I hired Steve for a child custody case in 2021. I see all the reviews that say he is "mean" or "rude" - I would say that he is just blunt and straightforward. He isn't going to get your hopes up just to preserve your feelings. Great guy. he is willing to answer your questions before you even hire him and you can bet that he's honest. Do I think that a 5k retainer was a lot for my case? Yes, but it IS Hawaii and I did hire him 2 months before my actual trial date after going pro-se for a while. Would I hire him again? Absolutely.

    "Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it."
    Steve Cedillos is definitely worth it. He’s very straightforward and gets the job done! Helped me get a TRO I probably wouldn’t have been able to do alone. Navigating the justice system isn’t easy, but his help made it so much easier along with a great outcome!! Thankful and grateful I came across him on Google. He was very responsive anytime I needed to reach him. Highly recommended.
