Civilian Court-Martial Lawyers: Military Officer Represented by Attorney Richard V. Stevens Wins Reduction of Administrative Discipline

Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, a senior military officer represented by military law attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) won a reduction in the administrative disciplinary action the client was facing.  After the investigation into claims made against the client was closed, the client was served with administrative disciplinary action that could have, effectively, ended the client’s career progression and possibly impacted the client’s future retirement.  The defense submitted a lengthy rebuttal package that resulted in the disciplinary action being reduced to a level that would not impact the client’s career progression or future retirement. 

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. 

For more information on the military justice system, please see our other blog posts.  Thank you.
