Former Military Officer Candidate Represented by Attorney Richard V. Stevens Successful in Appeal before Discharge Review Board

Recently, a former military officer candidate represented by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) was successful in his appeal before the Discharge Review Board.

Assisted by attorney Richard V. Stevens, a written appeal package was first submitted. Then, the client and attorney Richard V. Stevens appeared at the formal Discharge Review Board hearing. Based on the written appeal package and formal Discharge Review Board hearing, the client’s discharge characterization was successfully upgraded as requested.

While this military discharge 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. For more information on the military justice system, please see our other blog posts.
