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


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.
