Military families sacrifice daily in service to our nation and often endure frequent moves and deployments at the behest of the Department of Defense. For families that include an attorney spouse, such moves make maintaining a legal career daunting and expensive. Attorney spouses might have to gain admission to a new state bar every two to three years with the added stress of finding a new job.
