Military Justice Defense:  Protecting Your Freedom, Family and Financial Future

For over 22 years, Will has been either in the courtroom or advocating on behalf of his clients, whether soldiers or civilians.  After three year as a civilian criminal defense lawyer in Houston, Will enlisted in the Army in August 1996 – continuing a long line of military service that spanned several generations.  A brigade paralegal for almost two years, Corporal Helixon was commissioned in July 1998 and continued his trial advocacy for the U.S Army.  During his 18 years of active duty, Will served in virtually every military justice litigation job – trial counsel, senior trial counsel, senior defense counsel, chief of defense advocacy training, special victim prosecutor, and was certified as a military judge.  Based on his trial skills and experience, the Army awarded Will the “3T” “Master Military Justice Practitioner” skill identifier.  When your freedom is threatened by the Government, when legal stress has your family hanging on by a thread, or when your career and financial future is on the line, let Will apply the trial skills he honed for decades to aggressively advocate on your behalf.

“Simply stated, Will is one of the best trial lawyers I have ever observed in 30 years of military service. As the Deputy Commanding General of the 82nd Airborne Division and later the J33 on the Joint Staff, Will’s ability to handle the toughest cases and seek impartial justice was unmatched. I still rank Will at the very top of all litigators. He is the best our Nation has to offer. If I need assistance, I am going to Will Helixon.”

Latest Client Testimonial

“Will Helixon was my attorney during my court-martial in 2005 and his legal expertise and dedication is the sole reason my case ended in a dismissal from service with no jail time served instead of a conviction for premeditated murder facing life imprisonment. There are many brilliant lawyers available who know the law well, but what makes Mr. Helixon stand out from all of them is his complete involvement and absolute dedication to his client. During my court-martial he was my U.S. Army Trial Defense (TDS) appointed attorney, but he provided me with better service and attention than the most high-priced superstar lawyers. Will Helixon is, without a doubt, the reason I was able to continue with my life. Will Helixon exemplifies everything good about our legal system and the reason why I still have faith in said system.”
