Our Results

Prior Results Do Not Guarantee a Similar Outcome

Our lawyers have handled a wide array of cases in their more than 100 years of combined experience. When facing criminal charges as a member of the military, it is important to have an attorney who is experienced in military law and processes. We encourage you to read through some of our past cases to learn more about our experiences and the kind of results we achieve for our clients.

Here are results from the last 45 days. For a sample of results since 2015, see below.

22 November 2019 - Mr. Pristera successfully represented an Army Reserve Officer facing a loss of TS/SCI security clearance. The denial of due process by DOD CAF was based on classified information that DOD CAF was not even able to review. In the very unique case, Mr. Pristera was able to work with DOD CAF to conduct an audit of the Officers security clearance, resulting in the TS.SCI clearance being reinstated in full. All administrative separation and transfer actions within the USAR were terminated and the officer will now be promoted to Major once his flag is removed.

14 November 2019 - Mr. Conway represented a Naval Officer accused of wrongfully using a prescription drug. Through dialogue with his wife, command, and PERS we obtained a determination that the positive urinalysis was the result of an innocent ingestion. The officer was not required to show cause for retention.

13 November 2019 - Mr. Pristera successfully represented an Army Chief Warrant Officer Before a board of inquiry for allegations that he lied about taking an army physical fitness test. Despite the officer having previously received a written general officer reprimand for the allegations, Mr. Pristera convinced the board of officers to unsubstantiate the conduct and find that the evidence did not establish the allegation by a preponderance of the evidence. He was retained for future service.

13 November 2019 - Mr. Conway successfully represented a Navy Sailor at an Administrative Separation Board for two instances of domestic abuse. The Sailor was retained in service.

26 October 2019 - Mr. Galli represented an Army Officer at a Board of Inquiry. The officer was accused of wrongful use of a controlled substance on two separate occasions. Mr. Galli successfully secured an Honorable characterization of service for the officer.

13 October 2019 - Mr. Pristera successfully argued before the Air Force Evaluation Appeal Board (ERAB) for the removal of an Enlisted Performance Report (EPR) on based on an improperly conducted and flawed investigation into alleged misconduct.

13 October 2019 - Mr. Pristera success argued for a discharge upgrade to an Honorable discharge with a change of the Re-enlistment (RE) code based on evidence demonstrating that an administrative separation board improperly concluded that the Applicant had abused marijuana.

The Marine had been separated pursuant to an allegation of use of illegal drugs with a General (under honorable conditions).

7 October 2019 - Mr. Galli represented a former Navy Sailor who had previously been found unfit for duty, but had been denied placement on the Permanent Disability Retired List (PDRL).

3 October 2019 – Mr. Pristera obtained an upgrade in the discharge of a Navy Sailor.

30 September 2019 - Mr. Pristera successfully argued to the AFBCMR for the correction of a government debt erroneously created and imposed on an Officer.
