Defending Washington D.C. Active-Duty Members

Non-Judicial Punishments

Non-judicial punishment proceedings are known by multiple names. They can be referred to as the following:

  • Article 15
  • Office hours
  • Non-judicial punishment mast

In this scenario, an appeal is available to the service member after the disposition of the non-judicial punishment. The following are three potential grounds for appeal:

  1. Not enough evidence to find the service member guilty.
  2. Punishment was too severe for the offense.
  3. The commander failed to follow the laws/regulations during the non-judicial punishment proceedings.

Receiving a non-judicial punishment in the United States Military can be an incredibly stressful and confusing experience for any service member. Although the punishment does not actually constitute a criminal conviction, it can still have severe long-term implications on your career.

Working with an experienced attorney with a strong military law background can help you understand your rights and how best to defend you.

Fighting Involuntary Military Discharges

Having an attorney defend you against an involuntary discharge is critical to avoid long-lasting consequences. Not only will your military career come to an end, but your benefits can be terminated. In addition, this can have a lasting impact on your civilian job search later on.

There are three types of military administrative discharge:

  • Honorable
  • General (Under Honorable Conditions)
  • Under Other Than Honorable Conditions (OTH/UOTHC)

Fortunately, our team of attorneys understands the complexities of military law and is dedicated to providing the support and resources necessary to help protect your position.
