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.

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.
