Philip Douglas Cave works at  The Law Office of Philip D. Cave. I am self-employed as a sole practitioner. My practice is limited to military law and security clearance law issues. I travel the world to any location where there is a military base or U.S. military personnel assigned for my trial cases and administrative hearings.
