Jeffrey Carver

About Me

I proudly served as a U.S. Navy Jag Officer, defending those charged with violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice for over 24 years. I have successfully defended many members throughout the United States and the world. My practice is divided between  military defense, and civilian criminal defense. Although based in San Diego, California I am available to defend a military member anywhere I am needed. In the last few years, I have traveled throughout California, Utah, New Mexico and Alaska in those endeavors. I am a former magistrate at the Miramar Naval Base Brig, and due to my continued practice, I know many of the judges and prosecutors throughout the San DIego area. While negotiating cases is a key part of the practice, I am always ready to go to trial on a case where I am retained. Please call if you would like a free consultation.

  • Jerrold Bodow

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have worked with Mr. Carver on a number of courts-martial and administrative discharge cases. His superior knowledge of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the Evidence Code, and his great ability to strategize have paid off big for our clients, who have been acquitted of offenses ranging from attempted murder of a fellow Marine, to "Popping Positive" for drugs. I recommend him to anyone who has a military legal problem. I team up with him as co-counsel for any military case that I am retained for. His 24 years of JAG Corps experience has really paid off for my clients.
