Practice Summary
Practice Overview

Attorney Robert Capovilla is a partner at the law firm of Shewmaker & Shewmaker, a veteran-owned and veteran-operated law firm that specializes in assisting active-duty military members and veterans all over the world. Mr. Capovilla has earned a national reputation as one of the very best trial attorneys in the area of military justice. He has handled hundreds of sexual assault matters all over the United States, in six different continents, and in each of the five branches of the Armed Forces.

Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Capovilla was an active-duty Army Judge Advocate. While serving as a Judge Advocate, he was hand-picked by the JAG Corps to advocate some of the most complex cases in the Army. As a defense attorney, Mr. Capovilla has defended clients in several high-profile cases, many of which have appeared in the national and international media, including CNN, ABC News, and Fox News. While still serving in the Army JAG Corps, Mr. Capovilla also gained valuable insight as a Special Assistant United States Attorney where he prosecuted federal crimes on military installations. Having worked as a military prosecutor and defense counsel, he possesses the experience, judgment, and skill to ensure that clients’ rights will be protected throughout every step of the military justice process.

In private practice, Mr. Capovilla’s primary focus has been representing service members accused of sexual assault. He has achieved numerous acquittals in sexual assault cases in courts-martial all over the world, including several two-victim sexual assault cases, alcohol-related sexual assault cases, and husband-wife sexual assault cases. As the DoD zealously tees up sexual assault cases like never before, Mr. Capovilla passionately defends the falsely accused and evens the playing field.

In addition to sexual assault matters, Mr. Capovilla has served as lead counsel in hundreds of courts-martial offenses, including sodomy, desertion, desertion during wartime, insubordination, obstruction of justice, solicitation, AWOL, fraternization, inappropriate relationship, larceny, drug possession, drug use, drug distribution, adultery, pre-meditated murder, manslaughter, DUI, damage to government property, negligent homicide, attempted murder, attempted sexual assault, abusive sexual contact, fraud, larceny, conduct unbecoming, drunk and disorderly conduct, and fraternization, among others.

Patricia and Steven were instrumental in guiding successful drafting, calculation and argument for my AK-client's military divorce retirement division order. For military-divorce matters, look no further.
