Our Legal Services in the Fairbanks, AK Area

Fort Wainwright is a large U.S. Army installation in Fairbanks, Alaska, and is home to the Army’s northernmost combat unit: the “Arctic Wolves” of 1st Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT), 11th Airborne Division.  Spanning a vast area of over 1.6 million acres, Fort Wainwright stands as the largest U.S. military installation outside the contiguous United States.  With a diverse population of around 15,000 individuals including military members, dependents, civilian employees, and contractors, Fort Wainwright guards the top of the globe and ensures that American forces can fight and win under the most challenging climate conditions.

Eielson Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base positioned approximately 26 miles southeast of Fairbanks. Eielson AFB is comprised of over 9,000 personnel including Active Duty, family members, civilians & contractors, tenant units, and retirees.

At Mangan Law, we represent Uniformed Military Personnel, DOD Civilians, and civilian Law Enforcement Officers worldwide, including those at Fort Wainwright, Eielson AFB, and throughout the Fairbanks, AK Area.  Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Mangan has been a part of the military legal practice in this location since 2015, when he began serving as a Military Judge and presiding over Alaska court-martial cases.  Following his retirement in 2020, Mr. Mangan has handled dozens of Alaska military cases, from investigations to trials, successfully preserving and protecting the futures of his many satisfied Fairbanks-area clients.

Why Mangan Law?

Political pressure on military leaders has never been higher than it is right now.  Hot-topic offenses like sexual assault and sexual harassment are met with aggressive investigation once any allegation is made.  Commanders who take anything less than a harsh response are risking their own careers and futures, leaving the accused servicemember to feel the full weight of the current “zero tolerance” policy.   Thanks to significant funding and emphasis, those claiming to be the victims of such offenses are taken at their word and are flooded with resources and support.  Meanwhile, those accused of such acts are often left in the dark and presumed guilty once an allegation has been made.

Personnel at Eielson AFB and Fort Wainwright often face harsh punishment.  Commanders on both bases can immediately take pay, time, and rank through their Article 15 authority, and serious offenses are often sent to trial before a general or special court-martial.  Even minor missteps can result in career-harming letters of admonition (LOA) and reprimand (LOR) for Airmen and Officers and Eielson AFB, while minor errors by Soldiers and Army Officers over at Fort Wainwright can lead to the career-killing General Officer Memorandum Of Reprimand (GOMOR).

When your career is in jeopardy, demand exceptional representation. This is your life and future.  Settle for nothing but the best.  Former Judge Sean Mangan is an expert in his field, holding the highest certification given in the Armed Forces for knowledge of military legal matters:  “Master Military Justice Practitioner” (ASI-3T).  With a 24-year active-duty Army career and over 30 years in law and criminal justice, Sean Mangan offers an unparalleled wealth of experience.  In the four years since he retired, Mr. Mangan has repeatedly put that experience to good work for those serving in the Fairbanks, AK area.  If you are stationed at Eielson AFB or Fort Wainwright and are facing an adverse legal or administrative action (or investigation) by your command, call Mangan Law today to set up a free, confidential legal consultation.
