Welcome

Important Notice: I am currently fully booked with existing clients and will not be accepting new cases through at least November 1, 2021. If you are looking for a civilian attorney to assist you with a military law matter, I encourage you to contact the Military Law Task Force of the National Lawyers Guild or the GI Rights Hotline for a referral. – Also please see my COVID-19 pandemic policies

Welcome to JMBranum.com, the website of the Law Firm of James M. Branum.

On this website you can learn more about my nationwide US military defense practice (both in private practice and through my work through the Center for Conscience in Action).

In the past I have worked in other areas of law (including in helping Oklahomans with wills, trusts, non-profit law, cooperative (worker-owned) business law and complying with the US laws regarding travel to Cuba) but due to my current military law case load, I am not taking new cases in these other areas.

I also have information here about my work in providing continuing legal education and my legal writing.

And of course you can find out more about who I am, both professionally and personally.

If I can be of any assistance to you, please don’t hesitate to contact me.


No lawyer can do every area of law, but I am fortunate to know many excellent attorneys (including my Dad, two brothers and a sister-in-law) who work in some areas of law that I do not work in. I have information below on a few areas of law practiced by my kinfolks, but if you need help finding a lawyer in another area of law, I would encourage you to contact the National Lawyers Guild for assistance.
