As the Chief of Military Justice, he was responsible for the prosecution of military members under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. He also held an appointment as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, prosecuting civilians under Federal jurisdiction. In his next assignment as Area Defense Counsel, Attorney Obear defended clients throughout the country and around the world, earning him a national reputation for success. He was one of the few active-duty defense lawyers to receive the Meritorious Service Medal as a Captain. Attorney Obear received more than a dozen awards, citations, and medals, including a medal for Valor Under Enemy Fire in the Persian Gulf War.

Through his combined experience as a prosecutor and defense attorney, Attorney Obear has litigated over 500 jury trials.

Client Reviews

My husband had a case in 2019, we engaged the services of Attorney Kirk Obear. He was very thorough and brought to light a lot of evidence that helped the case. His Attorney- client relationship is top notch, he is ever ready to listen to the concerns of his clients. He returns calls and emails in a timely manner. I highly would recommend Attorney Obear to anyone in need of legal services. C.O.
Great attorney, I would consider him the best in the business. S.S.
I hired Kirk 3 years ago to take on a felony case and I unfortunately needed him for the next 2 years to follow. Kirk was straight forward and honest throughout the whole process and really knew what he was doing! I was looking at over 10 felonies that he got dropped to 2, and 12+years that was dropped down to one. I owe him my life for what he’s done for my family and I! I could never thank him enough and whenever a conversation arises and someone asks advice I always recommend Kirk Obear! Kirk, thank you for everything! I’ll never be able to thank you enough! A.H.
