We are prepared and proud to defend the rights of those who protect our country & our civil rights at home and abroad.
Matters unique to military members or issues involving military rights and entitlements require the assistance of an attorney who is specifically educated and experienced in Military Law.
Those who are in the military are always subject to being called to service. As a result, Congress enacted a number of laws including the Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), and the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) to allow service members the ability to devote their full attention to their duty, and avoid distractions from matters at home. We understand the stresses that can be placed on service members and their families and stand ready to help protect those who protect us.
Many issues arise when a service member and his or her spouse decide to get a divorce, including the division of military retirement and benefits under the Uniform Services Former Spouse’s Protection Act (USFSPA). Woodward Guten is among the few law firms in Northeast Oklahoma experienced in navigating their clients through all aspects of a military divorce and can assist you in ensuring that your entitlements are protected.
David A. Guten
Immediately following his graduation from law school in 2003 and upon receiving his license to practice in 2004, David was a direct commission to the United States Air Force and the Oklahoma Air National Guard as a Judge Advocate in early 2005.
In his civilian capacity and because of his military interests, David was asked by the Oklahoma Bar Association to help in the development of the Oklahoma Lawyers for America’s Heroes program- a free service for qualifying veterans on a number of related legal matters which asks attorneys across the state to donate up to 20 hours of pro bono legal services.
Today, David still serves as a JAG in the Oklahoma Air National Guard and advises members and often times their spouses on a number of matters that relate to military members and deployed personnel, such as wills, trusts and estates; family, divorce and custody; employment and USERRA; criminal and UCMJ matters; fiscal law; and any other issues which may affect a service member or his family, whether stateside or deployed.
