Military Law Attorney

Officer Misconduct

In the military, misconduct may be grounds for involuntary discharge from service. Drug abuse, minor disciplinary infractions, a pattern of misconduct, or a civilian conviction may all be considered misconduct and may be grounds for dismissal. Fortunately, service members in these situations may be given the opportunity to have a discharge hearing by the Administrative Separation Board, and at this time an attorney can present their side of the story and work to help them avoid separation.

Officer misconduct involves actions which the service member commits by choice. Unlike administrative separations conducted due to poor performance or physical/health reasons, misconduct cases involve actions the service member intentionally made. The service member is responsible for his or her conduct in these cases. Drug abuse often is classified as misconduct and handled by administrative separation hearing for this very reason.

Many of the forms of misconduct that are punishable by involuntary discharge may also be addressed by court-martial (the military equivalent of civilian criminal court.)

I would definitely recommend them - - my case was a civil case (employment contract). They are wonderful people and a pleasure to work with!!! Thank you so much!”

    “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!!!”

    “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!!!!”
