Types Of Administrative Investigations

Many types of administrative investigations can lead to disciplinary action, or even criminal investigation, if an allegation of misconduct is substantiated.


This is particularly true of administrative investigations into allegations of adultery, fraternization, “inappropriate relationships,” sexual harassment, hazing, discrimination, “toxic leadership,” or reprisal.

An Inspector General (IG) investigation is a more complicated type of administrative investigation, as your due process rights are determined by whether the IG considers you a “suspect” or a “subject.” The attorneys at the Law Offices of David P. Sheldon PLLC have represented multiple military members in commander’s inquiries, Army Regulation 15-6 investigations, and IG investigations

Mr. Sheldon came highly recommended by a fellow Public Health Service (PHS) officer. After initial discussion he immediately reviewed my case and provided me with a clear pathway. I retained Mr. Sheldon’s firm to apply to the PHS Board of Corrections to obtain adjudication of my rightful promotion. His knowledge of the law, the system and prior cases is phenomenal. His team worked efficiently, diligently and we were able to get a successful outcome. I would highly recommend him to any uniformed service person.
