More Than Your Military Career Is On The Line

In an administrative discharge proceeding, you face the possibility of the end of your military career. A discharge under Other Than Honorable conditions will affect your service characterization, adversely affect your military service benefits, and may negatively affect your future civilian career opportunities. In the face of losing your job, your benefits, your housing, your retirement, and possibly your future employability, you should take this matter seriously and consider hiring an experienced trial lawyer with a military background.
