Trial Defense Services, "TDS", provides conflict-free legal services to Soldiers who are facing adverse military actions, at no cost to the Soldier.  Unlike public defenders in civil jurisdictions, there are no eligibility requirements for representation.  Rather, all Soldiers are entitled to TDS representation by virtue of their membership in the Illinois Army National Guard.


Areas of representation include assistance with administrative separations, non-judicial punishments, AR 15-6 Investigations, commander's inquiries, responses to letters of reprimand, and other adverse actions taken against a Soldier .
