Investigations and Article 15s
Military Investigation Lawyer
Trusted Article 15s Lawyer
You may also be facing Article 15/nonjudicial punishment and need to decide if you should "accept" punishment by Article 15 or demand trial by court-martial. This decision is one that has many implications and can determine the future of your military career. Given the gravity of this decision, you need an experienced military law attorney on your side. The military will schedule you an appointment with a JAG attorney, but they are frequently overburdened and cannot take the time to fully analyze your case. In many cases, the imposition of NJP is the first step in adverse action the command will take to separate you from the service, possible with a discharge characterized as under "Other than Honorable Conditions." Our office will provide legal advice to anyone who is facing nonjudicial punishment action. We will assist in gathering the facts necessary to make an informed decision whether to accept or refuse NJP and if you elect to accept NJP, we will assist you in preparing your appeal as well as a rebuttal to a letter of reprimand if imposed.
Why You Need A Civilian Military Attorney
Remember the prosecution has nearly unlimited resources to use against you. They believe you are guilty. That is why they are prosecuting you. They want you in jail and out of the military. Your military defense counsel simply does not have the resources the prosecution does. They have investigators, police, paralegals and usually several attorneys working to prove you guilty. You need the best defense you can get. While the prosecution office is usually full of experienced attorneys the same is not always true of the defense office. They are also terribly overworked, and have to handle a number of other cases and responsibilities. You have too much at stake not to put together the best defense team possible. CID/OSI/NIS will stop at nothing to get you to make a statement implicating yourself. They are allowed to lie, and will frequently tell you things just to get you to make a statement. Don't be fooled. Ask for a lawyer, and then call our office.
