Grade Determination Board

Grade determination boards – particularly for service members preparing to retire, almost any record of substantiated misconduct in your personnel file will be reviewed by a grade determination board, which will decide if you deserve to retire at the grade you currently hold. Frequently, those with a history of substantiated misconduct are administratively reduced to a lower rank, resulting in a lower retirement pension. Over time, this loss can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

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.
