As a veteran who was wrongfully discharged from the military, the best thing that could have happened to me post-separation was getting in touch with David and his team. I was told I failed a urinalysis test which resulted in a loss of my GI bill and other benefits. After meeting with David and receiving a date in an appeals court, David managed to argue my case resulting in the clearing of any wrongdoing and a discharge upgrade to honorable. Today, I am a full time college student using my GI bill and other benefits. If you are a veteran who has been wrongfully discharged, these are the people you need to speak with.

After my son’s Other than Honorable discharge for something he didn’t do, we turned to David Sheldon and his team. Not only were they helpful in correcting the “wrong” that was done, David and team were patient, communicative, and responsive. I would highly recommend using David Sheldon. He was worth every penny!

On Monday, January 9, 2023, the Law Offices of David P. Sheldon won an Army Board for Correction of Military Records (“ABCMR”) case to have our client’s records corrected by the Department of the Army and his promotion awarded. The firm was able to obtain the relief less than six months from being retained.
This case involved adverse findings of an Army Regulation 15-6 investigation that were later unfounded by “clear and convincing evidence” and thus did not meet the definition of “reportable information.” Even after this finding and an ABCMR order to correct the records, the Department of the Army failed to correct and grant the requested relief.
The Law Offices of David P. Sheldon worked tirelessly to correct this injustice by requiring the Department of the Army to give our client the remedy he deserved and prevent any further undue hardship. After years of being stonewalled by the Department of the Army, our client finally received his order to correct his records and promotion from Lieutenant Colonel to Colonel.
The Law Offices of David P. Sheldon again thanks our client and the Department of Justice for helping to right this injustice. Specifically, we wish to express appreciation to our client for allowing the Law Offices of David P. Sheldon to advocate on your behalf and help reconcile significant relief in the correction of records, affirmation of promotion and related benefits.
Mr. Sheldon and his team were great right from the start. He laid out a knowledgeable plan of defense with a course of action that was born out of experience, with every intention of leveling the playing field to get to a fair result. I was caught up in a broken system filled with bias, privilege, and presumption. He was the voice that I needed in order to be heard and given even a chance of receiving some sort of justice. His advice and legal council brought peace and reassurance throughout the process and a result that could not have been achieved otherwise. I highly recommend the Law Offices of David P. Sheldon for all of your military legal needs as a very resourceful, informed, and experienced high powered firm that has a personal touch of immediate availability and response time. He will genuinely fight on your behalf and is an outstanding advocate to have by your side no matter what the charge or accusation. I was facing a command that was trying to end my career and ruin my record over contradictory instructions and technicalities that were being applied maliciously in an unequal fashion, but instead I am being allowed to remain in service to eventually retire as planned. I am extremely grateful for Mr. Sheldon and his team.
