In a CM do you pay for your own lawyer?
Not if the Army is representing you. But JHB is doing this pro bono - most of his big cases are...
Not if you use a Military Lawyer as assigned by the Command In Charge.
However, in cases which have a political dynamic one whould very seriously consider a civilian lawyer.
But, it's at your or whomever cares about you...expense.
The US Army will not pay the fee of a civilian lawyer.
Only if you want a good lawyer. No offense to any Majors-Light Colonels out there.
It's the same in the real world.
