Civilian Court-Martial Defense Lawyers: Senior Military Officer Retires Honorably, at Grade/Rank, After Record Cleared


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.
