Court Martial Lawyer
An Article 15 is a nonjudicial punishment, or NJP, determined by a commander
or other superior officer in an informal proceeding. Article 15 offenses
are generally not serious such as a minor
DUI but you may still be at risk of an
Administrative Separation or dishonorable
discharge. Though you do not have the right to be represented by an attorney in
an Article 15 or NJP proceeding, an experienced court martial lawyer from
the firm may be able to help you to determine a strategy to lessen the
severity of any penalties that might be imposed. The skilled team of military
criminal defense attorneys at The Federal Practice Group Worldwide Service
is well-versed in military justice procedures and may be able to assist
you in avoiding harsh penalties or even achieving a complete dismissal.

In many cases, it may be in your best interest to settle these matters
at the informal level of an Article 15 or NJP but you do have the right
to refuse the outcome and request a court martial. If you do accept, it
basically means that you have allowed the commander to act as judge and
jury regarding the offense you have been accused of. By accepting, you
are not necessarily admitting that you are guilty but you do forfeit any
right to a court martial. Most servicemen and women are dedicated to their
careers and this decision can be very difficult. One of their reliable
attorneys will take the time to carefully listen to the exact circumstances
of your case and may be able to help you decide on an optimal strategy
to protect your rights and your career.
