Practice Summary
Practice Overview

During his time as a military justice practitioner, attorney Robert Capovilla has received praise from clients and military officials alike as one of the most talented and charismatic trial attorneys working in the field today. He has been described by senior military attorneys and military judges as “the best trial lawyer I have seen in my 18 years as a military attorney,” “an absolute natural in the courtroom,” and “an exceptional advocate who is cool and calm under pressure.” Mr. Capovilla has earned a national reputation as one of the very best military sexual assault defense attorneys in the country. He has handled thousands 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.

From the very beginning Rob was very thorough. He gathered every possible detail and attacked it from every angle. There was no stone left unturned. One thing that I admired was his honesty. Even if it was not what I wanted to hear at the time, he told it exactly like it is. He gave the worst...
