Camp Lejeune Water Contamination – Marines Defending Marines

For over 30 years, Marines and families stationed at MCB Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River, North Carolina were exposed to harmful industrial chemicals in their drinking water. Cancer and other deadly diseases have been linked to these contaminants. If you or a loved one lived or worked at Camp Lejeune or MCAS New River for at least thirty (30) days between 1 August 1953 and 31 December 1987 and have been diagnosed with or experienced a qualifying medical condition, you may be entitled to significant financial compensation.

Court-Martial Defense

A court-martial is federal court convened by a Commanding Officer/General to adjudicate the alleged criminal misconduct of a military servicemember. There are three types of courts-martial, with classification varying based on seriousness of the crime, legal process, and severity of punishment: General, Special, and Summary. General courts-martial deal with the gravest criminal charges, while Special courts-martial handle misdemeanor-type offenses.Summary courts-martial are generally an uncontested administrative hearing, rarely offered unless the servicemember acknowledges misconduct.

Court-Martial Appeals

Justice is not always served at a trial. That’s why every military branch has a Court of Criminal Appeals to review and consider the decisions meted out by courts-martial. As the military justice system’s final opportunity for righting a wrong, the appellate process requires experienced legal representation in order to result in success.

Administrative Discharge Proceedings

Military separation boards are administrative proceedings that handle discharges from service, grade and career determinations, and other criminal or non-criminal matters. A command may refer minor charges against a commissioned officer to a military board in lieu of court-martial. Regardless of the type of board, our military law attorneys can offer indispensable counsel to servicemembers appealing to, or undergoing review by, a military board.

Article 15 / NJP

Non-judicial punishment (NJP) under Article 15, UCMJ, is a disciplinary tool for Commanding Officers to quickly dispose of minor offenses without initiating the court-martial process. Whether called an “Article 15,” “office hours,” or “Captain’s Mast,” the imposition of nonjudicial punishment can have significant consequences on a servicemember’s career.  

Titling Actions

Being titled in the military is as simple as being placed in the subject block of a CID report of investigation.  Once titled, a servicemember is indexed into federal law enforcement databases and may appear during routine background checks, regardless of whether he or she was ever punished. Titling actions can have serious long-term consequences but, thankfully, can be challenged.
