Military Defense Lawyer (Former JAG Attorney) News:

Recently, in two different administrative cases, military members defended by attorney Richard V. Stevens (Military Defense Law Offices of Richard V. Stevens, P.C.) achieved successful outcomes.  Because both cases were administrative, we can only provide limited general information.  Those two administrative cases are described below. 

Military Officer Faced Involuntary Administrative Discharge.

In this military case, our officer client faced an involuntary administrative discharge board hearing (Board of Inquiry [BOI], Show Cause) alleging unfitness to continue military service.  The defense submitted multiple responses rebutting these claims on behalf of the client.  After an extended period, the General Officer convening authority withdrew the administrative discharge board notice. 

Military Officer Faced Allegation of Professional Misconduct.

In this military case, our officer client was accused of professional misconduct affecting her professional license, and the military had reported this to her professional and state licensing boards.  Based on the defense presentation and appeal, those reports were withdrawn. 

While these two military administrative cases were successfully defended, 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.
