Military Defense Lawyer Explains Administrative Separation Boards and Your Rights
For many of us, our military career is a source of pride, both for ourselves and our families. There are particular circumstances, though, where your military service can be involuntarily terminated. If you are facing a discharge board, feel that the action is unjust and want to fight what is occurring, an accomplished military criminal defense attorney from The Law Offices of Haytham Faraj, PLLC is prepared to review you case.
An administrative separation board can be convened for medical reasons, officer misconduct, dereliction of duty and many other reasons. If you are found guilty of a serious crime, such as a drug offense, DUI, battery, embezzlement, fraud crimes and others, a discharge board can also be held. With 26 years of combined experience, attorneys at the firm know how to present a convincing defense that aligns with your rights and alternatives as given in military law. The founder of our firm served in the Marine Corps for 22 years before starting private practice as an attorney. He has never been defeated in a military criminal defense case and has the honor of being the only lawyer to have tried 3 major war crimes cases while winning all of them.
Prevailing at your discharge hearing may be your best chance to prevent irreparable harm to your military career. Success can also put a halt to the negative effects a dishonorable or bad conduct discharge can have to future employment, eligibility for veteran’s benefits, pension payments and your reputation as a member of the armed services. By retaining a committed attorney from the firm, you give yourself a valuable opportunity for just treatment in your case.
Preventing a Discharge Board
An attorney at the firm can brief you fully on what your rights to counsel are and how your case can be defended. You can also find out what can be done to stop an administrative discharge. In some cases, you will not be given a review board but will have to respond to questions in writing. Whether a lawyer from the firm directly represents you at a hearing or through written responses, you will have the support of a team with a proven track record of success.
Don’t allow your career to be ended on an improper note. Obtain military defense counsel with a well-earned reputation for producing favorable results in military law situations.
