Administrative Reprimand

An administrative reprimand placed in your permanent personnel file can mean the end of your career.

You are not likely to be promoted and may even face involuntary administrative separation. Although administrative reprimands have significant consequences for your career, you have very few due process rights and very short deadlines for rebuttals, usually about a week.


Assisting Clients

Assisting clients with rebutting administrative reprimands is usually a low priority for military defense counsel. Military defense counsel may even refer you to a military legal assistance attorney, typically a Judge Advocate who is new to the military, and therefore, lacks the expertise necessary to help you successfully rebut the reprimand. Our attorneys have experience with Administrative Reprimands.

I believe I was so happy after the results were given to me that I probably forgot to thank all of you for wonderfully taking care of my case. I really don’t think this would have been possible without your dedication and the professional relationship between the two of you. You gave me back 17.5 years of my life and I don’t have any words to say how much I appreciate all you did for me and my family. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
