Can you appeal a denial of military disability benefits?

Perhaps more than other careers, the military requires physical fitness. The risks of injury can also be high, especially for those who have seen combat. Although the military provides benefits to injured service members, a Physical Evaluation Board must generally approve eligibility.

Are some military controversies too small for an attorney's help?

In previous posts, we’ve explored some of the various types of courts-martial. Although less serious disputes may not be as newsworthy, a look at our law firm’s website section devoted to references and cases illustrates that important issues are still decided at all levels of military proceedings.

Military must pursue courts-martial properly

Those who serve in the military can face a court-martial for a variety of offenses. However, when pursuing courts-martial against its service personnel, the military must ensure it does not infringe upon any protected rights. A lance corporal at Camp LeJeune received a court-martial after she refused to take down a Bible verse that was posted in her work space. District of Columbia readers are aware of the fact that the military cannot infringe upon the rights of those who are active in any faith.
