The following are aspects of a military criminal charge that we can provide information about and help you through:
For those who commit punitive offenses under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), Nunjudicial punishment under Article 15 can be awarded for relatively small offenses by a commanding officer. This is a mini-trial that is used when the offense is viewed as so minor it does not warrant a complete court-martial. There is a specific procedure that should be taken for a nonjudicial punishment.
A discharge upgrade is for veterans who have received a less than honorable discharge for a criminal conviction, which can be traumatic on their future. Veterans are allowed to upgrade their discharge or have the reason changed. This is a process that our lawyers can help you handle.
At The Carlson Law Firm, we can help you understand what should be expected when you go through a court-martial trial. If you are a court-martial being prosecuted under UCMJ, our lawyers can work with you to help you get the best possible defense.
You will need aggressive legal assistance if you are facing an involuntary separation from your military service. We can represent your case if your command has sought to involuntarily separate you.
