Administrative Discipline Actions [Counseling, Admonition, Reprimand]
Civilian defense attorneys Richard V. Stevens and Frank J. Spinner are best known for military court-martial trial defense and court-martial appellate practice successes. This includes high profile/media involved military justice cases, and other serious military criminal cases that have resulted in dropped charges/cases and acquittals (not guilty of all charges and specifications).
While general court-martial (and sometimes special court-martial or summary court-martial) successes may result in more public recognition, there are many other military adverse actions that these military defense attorneys handle, that can have a dramatic impact on a military member’s career, future, and family.
The military service branches have various administrative disciplinary actions they can take for lower level and “minor” alleged misconduct. These actions include disciplinary counseling, admonishment, and reprimand. While these adverse actions are not as serious as an Article 15 or court-martial, they can still have a significant impact on a military member’s career (promotion and assignments) – and could even lead to administrative discharge/separation, particularly in this time of military drawdowns. Because of this, having an experienced and aggressive defense attorney on your side is absolutely vital in these military cases.
Attorneys Richard V. Stevens and Frank J. Spinner defend military members facing administrative disciplinary actions, such as counseling, admonishment and/or reprimand.
