The Passing of a Great Defense Lawyer and Navy JAG Officer Raises Cancer Concerns at Guantanamo Bay



We are very sad to report that a great military defense lawyer, Navy JAG officer, and man - Lt. Cmdr. William Kuebler - has passed away much too early, and his unfortunate passing has raised concerns about a possible association between Guantanamo Bay Cuba (GITMO) and cancer.  A Miami Herald article on this appears here:

Here also is another article regarding this concern:

Rest in peace Lt. Cmdr. Kuebler; thank you for your service.

CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYERS: Retired Military Non-Commissioned Officer Successfully Corrects his Military Records and Receives Earned Benefits

Military Criminal Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a retired military non-commissioned officer and combat veteran had his military records corrected and was awarded benefits he had earned by his service.  The client was represented and defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).

The military client served in combat in the Middle East and retired, but his records did not appropriately reflect his service, which impacted the benefits he was entitled to for his service.  Attorney Stevens assisted the client in preparing and submitting various administrative appeal packages which resulted in his records being corrected and the benefits being awarded. 

Due to the nature of administrative actions in the military, no further details about this case can be released.  While the defense was successful in this case, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in some previous case(s) does not guarantee success in any particular future case.  No military lawyer or civilian defense lawyer, including those who specialize in military law, can guarantee the outcome of any military case.

CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYERS: Rape or Sexual Assault Court-Martial Allegations and Case against Senior Military Officer Dropped (UCMJ Article 120)

Military Criminal Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior military officer who was facing rape or sexual assault allegations by a former civilian acquaintance had the allegations and court-martial case against him dropped by the government (UCMJ Article 120) after a long investigation.  The accused military member was defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.). 

The military client faced allegations by a hostile acquaintance who held a grudge against the client.  After a long and involved investigation, the case against the client was dropped – a just result for a dubious claim.  While the outcome of this rape or sexual assault court-martial case was successful, it is important to understand that every case has different facts, and success in previous cases does not guarantee success in any particular future case.  No military lawyer or civilian defense lawyer, including those who specialize in military law, can guarantee the outcome of any military trial or case.
