Continue The Fight — Court-Martial Appeals
Service members found guilty following court-martial proceedings are still entitled to have their case examined by an attorney. In fact, the result of every special court-martial and general court-martial are reviewed by the convening authority. However, this review is not an appeal, and service members should seek further counsel for a court-martial appeal.
Our law firm can appeal even the most serious UCMJ convictions, including:
- Sexual assault charges
- AWOL and desertion
- Obstruction of justice
- Negligent discharge
- Dishonorable discharge
- Treason and espionage
Because the consequences of a court-martial conviction can extend beyond the scope of military service, do not hesitate to seek an appeal.
At The Military Justice Center, our lawyers understand that every service member has a story to tell regarding their case. Our prior military service combined with our local presence assisting current service members allows us unique access to resources related to the UCMJ and the military courts system.
Bridging The Gap Between Service And A Just Result
Service members often have the opportunity to appeal their case at least twice — first to their branch of service and second to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.
Our law firm understands what service members are going through following a conviction. Because we know the stories and the consequences, we will use our opportunity in the appeals system to construct a compelling and compassionate defense.
Compelling And Compassionate Appeals For Service Members
Our attorneys have been involved in military justice cases around the world, including Iraq, Afghanistan and South Korea. We have seen firsthand the stress of service and the command climate from which courts-martial cases develop.
