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

Congressional Inquiries & Article 138

They also have experience with Congressional inquiries and Article 138, UCMJ complaints.

You cannot afford to take chances by representing yourself in a criminal or administrative investigation. Your military record could be forever marred, and your military career prematurely ended, as the result of a criminal or administrative investigation.

Contact the Law Offices of David P. Sheldon, PLLC. Their attorneys will ensure you have the information and representation you need to successfully navigate a criminal or administrative investigation.

I can’t thank Attorney Sheldon enough for his work on my case in obtaining my security clearance. I was facing an administrative discharge board due to the security issue. He was able to get another review of the facts and . . . I was granted a clearance.

Now all those sleepless nights, the worries, and stress are gone. Again THANK YOU from my wife and 3 daughters.
