Military Criminal Defense

We defend those who defend our country. When a member of the military is charged with a crime, a different set of rules and procedures are in place than those in the civilian sector.  Having been involved with the Military Justice side, with a perspective of what really happens, allows us to assist your JAG Attorney and take the lead with many more years of both operational and trial experience.

Client Testimonials

Dan Karalash is an extremely knowledgable lawyer with a marked lack of tolerance for injustice. He simply will not accept defeat and allow an injustice to take place on his watch. He fights for his clients aggressively, emphatically and creatively with any and all tools available to him. When Dan Karalash takes your case, he commits 100% and will not back down.

He represented my son at a very difficult time in what should have been a very simple matter, a school yard fight. My son had never been disciplined by the schools in his life until he was forced to defend himself when another student attacked him. 13 completely absurd hearings later, he was still with us and the charges were finally dismissed. At no point during the entire 18 month process did I feel anything other than a positive outcome was possible, thanks to Dan’s aggressive confidence and unwillingness to settle for anything but justice.

Dan is a great lawyer, he is also a good, ethical, moral person who does what is right at every step of the way. I have referred him to many, many friends over the years, primarily for family law and, without exception, they have all been very happy with his representation.


Assault & Battery

Karalash knows how to fight and win!   When we met, I had three lawsuits against me.  Karalash settled two with zero benefit to the plaintiffs.

The third went to a Jury trial. Karalash got the exact judgement I was expecting.  Since completion of the trial, I have no one suing me!

Mission Accomplished, I am a HAPPY CLIENT!


Business Litigation

We had an excellent experience with this team of attorneys. We were always informed and communicated with. They helped us win our custody case and get unhandled matters settled.

We appreciate their dedication to our family!
