Civilian Court-Martial Defense Lawyers: Military Officer Cleared of Professional Negligence Claim



MILITARY CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER (Former JAG Attorney) NEWS:

Recently, a military officer was cleared of an allegation of professional negligence.  The officer was represented by military criminal defense attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) 

The officer client was initially investigated and the professional negligence claim was substantiated against him.  However, the defense appealed that finding and the rebuttal memorandum detailed the defense issues with the initial substantiation.  Ultimately, the appeal was successful and the officer was cleared, allowing him to continue on in his military career with a clean record. 

Due to the nature of adverse 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: Senior Military Officer Retires Honorably, at Grade/Rank, After Record Cleared



MILITARY CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAWYER (Former JAG Attorney) NEWS:

Recently, a senior, field-grade, military officer retired honorably, and at the highest/current grade/rank he held, after his record was cleared of alleged misconduct.  The officer was represented by military criminal defense attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) 

The officer client had received a disciplinary action based on alleged misconduct, which was filed in his personnel records.  He then hired military law attorney Richard V. Stevens to appeal the action and attempt to get it removed from his records.  The appeal was submitted and was successful, clearing the officer’s record and allowing him to continue on in his successful military career until he recently retired, honorably, at the highest rank he served. 

While this military case was successfully appealed, 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.

CIVILIAN COURT-MARTIAL DEFENSE LAWYERS: Senior Military Officer Cleared to Return to Duty


Military Criminal Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior military officer who was facing allegations of misconduct and removal from position was cleared to return to duty after the investigation was concluded. The accused military member was defended by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.).

In the case, allegations of misconduct were levied against the senior officer who was suspended from duty.  The defense submitted a detailed rebuttal to the allegations, including citations to evidence, and requested a more formal investigation in which the defense identified witnesses to be interviewed.  During the more formal investigation, the defense, again, submitted a detailed rebuttal to the allegations, attaching evidence to be considered.  When the investigation was concluded, the officer was cleared to return to duty.  

Due to the nature of allegations and the investigations, 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.
