Administrative Discharge Hearing Attorney

Experienced Military Lawyer

Administrative discharge, commonly called administrative separation or involuntary discharge, is an action taken against a military service member due to poor performance of duty, criminal conduct, homosexuality, drug use or continued misconduct. Depending on the particular situation, the service member may have the right to a discharge hearing regarding his or her separation from military service. All branches of the military, including the Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Force, all have some form of standard separation or discharge procedure that may be employed in these cases.

When your command seeks to discharge you from service, you will be notified in writing. This notice will include the grounds for separation as well as the characterization of your service. For example, the grounds may be misconduct and your service may be classified as Other Than Honorable (Less Then Honorable, Dishonorable.)

Working with a Military Lawyer

If you are facing an administrative discharge hearing, having a competent military lawyer at your side may prove invaluable to the outcome of your matter. The Board will need to find by a preponderance (majority) of evidence that the grounds for your separation are true and that your service should therefore be terminated. Final approval for administrative separation will be by the Separation Authority.

By presenting your side of the story, protecting you rights and representing your interests during the administrative discharge process, an experienced attorney may be able to help you avoid separation altogether. At the very least, an attorney may be able to help you secure a more favorable classification of your service.

The Gould Law Firm takes on administrative separation hearings throughout the U.S. and internationally, for all branches of the U.S. Military. Contact a military lawyer at our firm today!

    “My family needed an attorney ASAP and Mr. Gould was the only attorney that responded to my call immediately and I called at 7 o'clock at night. I called other attorneys but none ever returned my call. I needed help regarding a CPS matter and they even went as far as helping me with a legal matter that was going on at the same time. Mr. Gould and his staff kept in contact every day and even after court. Mr. Gould really fought for me and my families rights and they won my case. I've never seen an attorney in action like them. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Not once did they judge me for my past which many people do so do be afraid to contact them because they will get the job done and the results are great!!!!”



    “It has been 3 years since The Gould Law firm reached an acquittal for my husband and every chance we get, we highly recommend their services. Mr. Gould and his team, literally saved my husband from spending the rest of his life behind bars for an allegation that was not true. While our legal system indicates we are innocent until proven guilty, the jury of public opinion differs from that statement when accusations of indecency with a child are thrown at you or the one's you love. Mr. Gould was simply magnificent when it came to defending my husband. His staff, helped prepare us for trial and although we knew the truth, your heart can't help but skip a beat when on the witness stand.... thankfully we knew how to look a the jury and answer truthfully. We are forever, thankful!!!”
