    “I failed a drug test! I was shocked because I had not done anything that I was aware of. I immediately suspected what had happened. I was viciously slipped something in a drink. I had evidence of who had done this, why they had done this, & texts stating why they intended to end my career! When I went to NJP, the CO ignored all that evidence & found me guilty, despite the evidence. I even had the Command Legal Officer & Military Legal telling me that this case was so obviously apparent to what had happened. The command then turned their back on me & attempted to turn my 17 years of good conduct & excellent evaluations into a dishonorable discharge! Gary worked with me to calm my nerves & to reassure me that everything would be alright! Joe Galli flawlessly showed up to my defense & got me acquitted of the charges & got me retained for service at my ADSEP board, despite my commands attempt to ignore the evidence & discredit my 17 years of good conduct & service. If you are thinking about whether or not to hire this firm for your defense, I am here to tell you they their expertise will benefit you more than any any dollar amount that they will charge you, which is minimal! Thank you Gary & Joe!!!”

  • Gary got my witnesses and recommendation letters on point and got me ready to testify at my hearing. Because of his representation I was recommended for retention.

    “Had a single act of misconduct which was positive urinalysis for THC. As an officer this was tough to fight despite the fact that my record prior to this incident had been stellar. Gary got my witnesses and recommendation letters on point and got me ready to testify at my hearing. Because of his representation I was recommended for retention. He is very good.”

  • Brian Pristera saved my military career

    “I contacted Brian Pristera after finding out I tested positive for cocaine on a UA. I have been active duty in the Army for 12 years and plan to serve all 20+. Brian advised me to turn down the article 15 and take it to court-martial. After 6 months we went to court with a very strong case. I was found NOT GUILTY by the jury. Brian helped me every step of the way and was very professional. He was always available with any question I had at any time. I 100% believe Brian is responsible for saving my military career!”

  • This team understand the complexities and nuances of military law, and they also care about improving the lives of their clients.

    “After being titled while in the military, despite being found not guilty at my Article 15 hearing with all charges dropped, my FBI background check has prevented me from various forms of employment during my past 2 years post-Army. Gary Myers and Brian Pristera are working to appeal my titling, and in the meantime, Brian wrote a fantastic, detailed and compelling Opinion Letter, explaining the titling process and contextualizing my situation, helping me pass my FBI background check and sign a contract with a new employer. I’m very grateful for the knowledge, expertise and dedication of this firm. Going up against a UCMJ action, even when innocent of any crimes, demands expert legal aid. This team understands the complexities and nuances of military law, and they also care about improving the lives of their clients. They have my full confidence and I am very grateful for their assistance and efforts.”

    “Dear Gary, I wanted to thank you for your help with our case. We were surprised at the many roadblocks we met with this command, and are so grateful your firm was there to assist us. We were so pleased working with you as well as with Brian, who was exceptionally knowledgeable and smart. Beyond that, working with Brian was just very pleasant, and he really helped guide us through what proved to be a much more complex and contentious process than what I think any of us anticipated. We are delighted A. is staying ashore in the meantime to address his medical issues and credit solely the assistance Brian and your firm have provided. Thank you for all your help. We plan to be in touch after the adsep decision is made to consider our next step vis-vis A.'s Article 15. In the meantime, please accept our profound gratitude. All best.”

  • Better result than I could have hope for!

    “A drug case was supposed to be an almost guaranteed seperation with OTH or at best General. But Mr. Galli was an absolute legend inside the board. We achieved retention in the Navy against the odds and I now get to continue to serve today. This IS who you should call if you find yourself needing serious help.”

  • Simply put, I owe any future success of my own in the military to Mr. Myers' representation.

    “ Mr. Myers personally returned my cold call to his office the same day. He spoke with me at length about my administrative military issue, and the approach he would take to resolve it. Mine was not a traditional legal matter, but one which Mr. Myers was confident he could assist in nonetheless, given his extensive experience in the field. He convinced me to allow him to resolve my problem at a time I believed no resolution was possible. Mr. Myers worked on my issue immediately after I retained him, producing a draft of his work product for my review in less than a week. He allowed me to contribute based on my personal knowledge of the situation and was very responsive and professional in completing the final product. Ultimately, we were in all respects successful in resolving the matter. Simply put, I owe any future success of my own in the military to Mr. Myers' representation.”

  • "DONT GIVE UP ON YOURSELF JUST BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE GIVEN UP ON YOU"

    “IT IS NEAR TO IMPOSSIBLE TO BELIEVE, IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS, EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT OK. WE TEND TO BELIEVE THE WORSE IN THE WORST OF TIMES. AS A MARINE, SERVING 11 YEARS, I WAS TRAINED BY EVERY OUNCE OF ME NEVER TO GIVE UP HOPE. TO ALWAYS BE FAITHFUL. BUT SOON, I FELL. AND IT SEEMED AS IF I WOULD NEVER STOP FALLING. I WANTED TO GIVE UP. BUT MR CONWAY, A FORMER MARINE, HELPED ME BACK UP. IT WASNT ONLY THE LEGALITY ASPECT WHERE HE GAVE ME HOPE. BUT IN THAT HE CAN WALK SIDE BY SIDE WITH ME, SIT SIDE BY SIDE WITH ME AND BE MORE THAN A LAWYER. HE WAS AN ADVISOR, TACTICIAN, REALIST, AND AT ONE POINT FELT LIKE A BROTHER. MR CONWAY SERVED AS A MARINE A COUPLE MOONS AGO AND IT SHOWS THAT HE WANTED TO CONTINUE THAT PATH BY SERVING OTHER SERVICE MEMBERS. HE GAVE ME ALL THE TOOLS, ALL THE OPTIONS, AND MUCH MORE TO HELP ME CONCLUDE IN WHAT I NEEDED TO DO. BUT NEVER FORCED ME OR MADE ME FEEL FORCED TO MAKE A DECISION I DIDNT WANT TO. ANSWERING TEXT AND CALLS AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY OR NIGHT, ACTUALLY MEETING IN PERSON TO DISCUSS MATTERS, OR FLYING HUNDREDS OF MILES TO MEET, HE WAS THERE. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION.”

  • Mr. Conway provides passion and expertise that you just won't get from detailed military defense.

    “I hired Mr. Conway after my first legal team was eviscerated at an article 120 court martial. Mr. Conway took on my case as it went to the appeals courts. The appeals process is very lengthy, taking sometimes up to 2 years. He was in contact with me through every stage of the process. Mr. Conway was successful in having the charges in the case set aside, and the case sent back to the lower courts for remand. Without question I hired Mr Conway for the retrial. His passion for his craft was apparent; he ran circles around the prosecution and clearly had tons more experience than the detailed military counsel who only fill the role for a 2 year rotation. The Government really is out to get you. If you end up in a court room, they aren't going to take it easy on you. Obtain competent, aggressive legal defense. Mr. Conway is one of few out there that are passionate about trial work, and feel comfortable in the courtroom. Hope for the best, plan for the worst.”

  • I received my board results and the outcome was positive. It's due to Mr. Myers experience in this area and his unwavering dedication to his clients!

    “Mr. Myers represented me as I requested an appeal to have my GOMOR moved into my restricted file. During our initial consultation he set the conditions up front by being 100% honest with expectations and NEVER misled or gave me false hope....it was going to be a challenge but he would fight for me. I spoke with several other lawyers who told me up front I had either a slim no chance or no hope for a positive outcome but he was the only one who said it would be a challenge but worth moving forward. During this entire appeal process he always ensured I was informed of how things were moving along, if I had a question or concern I could depend on him to return my calls almost immediately. Again, throughout this entire process if I had anything additional , awards, evaluations 1059s ect, he would immediately update it to my packet. I received my board results and the outcome was positive. It's due to Mr. Myers experience in this area and his unwavering dedication to his clients! I am more than satisfied with his service and would recommend him to anyone as their first choice, you will not be disappointed.”

  • Joe Gali received an abnormal result in a very complicated financial case and had my case dismissed in the Article 32 hearing a mammoth of a decision. I am forever indebted to Joe Gali and Gary Myers

    “My experience with Mr. Myers and my attorney Joe Gali was top-notch. Joe Gali is a pitbull , his extensive knowledge of military law and attention to detail is top-tier. Being former servicemembers this law firm cares about you and will do all in their power to attain the best outcome while being honest and managing expectations. If you are reading this and seeking representation look no further. Trust me! You want this team fighting for you. This is a honest testimonial from a satisfied client.”

  • Things I look for in a lawyer, which Mr. Dan has better than all I've encountered for the DOD: 1) Intelligence/asks many questions 2) Conversational and not nerdy (better connection with command or jury) 3) Meticulousness 4) Voice and Speech / Gravitas. 5)

    “Above average level of knowledge. After consulting with many lawyers who were top Google hits like Mr. Dan to help a friend, my friend decided Mr. Dan was Superior to the others. My best friend had a positive urinalysis which was shocking, but it was a non-drug abuse offense. After speaking to Mr. Dan Conway, we were satisfied. He brought up critical arguments that none of the other lawyers we spoke to brought up. For their very last minute case, the experts on his team provided same-day analysis which supported this my friend's theory on why they were positive. It was a very in-depth analysis on the substance innocently ingested. The other lawyers didn't have the connections Mr. Dan had to deliver fast analysis from a career subject matter expert. You remember that smart kid from class that you hated hearing. Don't get a lawyer who doesn't move you when he or she speaks. Mr. Dan knows how to communicate. He's got a resonating, wonderful voice that is reassuring to listen to. He connects with you on a human level because he wants you to succeed. The ability to connect with people is powerful before a jury or a chain of command. Highly recommend. He's meticulous and as a military lawyer, he will give you one of the best shots at the best possible result.”

  • “My lawyer took on my case when it seemed hopeless...I was able to get justice for my sexual assault and my career back

    “After almost 3 years of hell, I reached out to the law firm after DASEB rejected my request and delayed informing me for 6 months. Mr. Pristeria worked with me to articulate the facts, organize my recommendation letters and address the additional circumstances regarding my sexual assault in regards to the case. Mr. Pristeria ‘s expertise, professionalism and experience helped transform my case so the injustice was transparent and concise through every administrative board and requirement. The outcome gave me and my family justice and closure in regards to my assault. Thanks to Mr. Pristeria and the firm, I have my life and active duty career back. Don’t give up without giving them the opportunity to fight for you.”

  • Appeal through BCNR

    “After being found Not Guilty at SPCM I was pushed out of the Corps three years later for failing to maintain the high standards of a Marine. I looked everywhere for someone that could help me. It seemed as though there was no hope of saving the 17 years 11 months and 16 days I had given to my country. I came across a link and emailed Gary Myers, he called me right back. We briefly went over details and he told me Daniel Conway was the man for the job and he would pass all details over to him. Daniel drafted up a letter to the BCNR detailing my clean service record and enthusiastic recommendations for retention from my previous command. He was highly familiar with regulations under title 10 and addressed those as well. A straight, to the point letter, addressing our desires from the board with supporting documentation gave us the win. After being out for roughly 20 months and waiting a decision for 16 months from BCNR, I am being re-instated to AD with constructive credit for time, and all pay and dues. Plus I am getting remedial promotion consideration with back date. These guys get the job done when no one else is willing to try. Highly professional, with unmatched UCMJ and title 10 knowledge. I can’t thank them enough.”

  • They gave me hope and have secured a bright future for me after the Army

    “Gary Meyers and Joe Galli were an absolute pleasure to work with and watching them work was quite literally awe-inspiring. My chain of command was pushing for harshly punitive sanctions against me despite more than 8 years of flawless service prior to the allegations of misconduct against me. Despite my chain of command pushing for an OTH, Joe was able to secure a General Discharge at my Board of Inquiry — in addition, I will be able to complete my Med Board and receive my VA disability benefits. He fought fiercely and professionally, and I don’t think there’s another lawyer in the entire country who could have put forth a better defense on my behalf. Words cannot describe the level of gratitude I have for Gary Myers, Daniel Conway and Associates Law Firm.”

  • Having Joe Gailli and his experience was profound

    “I can not be more pleased with the decision to choose this firm. Joe painted the picture and it was pure artistry. His timing and articulation made him one of few. I had all the faith in him and, he came thru changing my life for the better. Sometimes you stumble having someone like Joe Galli in your corner to help you up can make the difference of a lifetime. He held extreme professionalism the entire time. I would highly recommend his expertise if you ever find yourself in such binding circumstances. Thank you so very much for your support and whole hearted efforts Joe Galli and Gary Myers, Daniel Conway & Associates. Sincerely SSGT Smith N.J.”

After consulting with many lawyers who were top Google hits like Mr. Dan, this person who I was helping realized jointly that their non-drug abuse offense, logically, had legs to stand on based on Mr. Dan's unique attack vectors toward the accusers.

  • Preserved my Family's Future

    “There are no words of gratitude that would fully express the appreciation I have for Mr. Pristera. After a 19 year military career the military was preparing to early discharge me for a false accusation. While stationed in SK I received a GOMOR for falsifying a PT test. While in SK I did not have any representation so the GOMOR was filed in my permanent records. This in turn a year later triggered HRC to flag me for early separation. The odds were definitely stacked against me. Mr Pristera dug into every aspect of my situation and prepared a rock solid defense for my Board of Inquiry. In the end the BOI found me not guilty of Falsifying a PT test and not guilty of Conduct Unbecoming of an Officer and voted to retain me in service, preserving my career and the future of my family. There are no words that can describe the load lifted from my shoulders. My advice to anyone facing similar circumstances is to talk to the folks at the law firm of Gary Myers, Daniel Conway and Associates. Mr Pristera thank you so very much again for preserving my career and retirement. CW3(P)”

  • There is light at the end of the tunnel.

    “I contacted this Law Firm at last minute notice when I was informed about a situation I had to handle the next day. Gary Myers stayed up late that night and walked me through the process, also making sure Daniel Conway contacted me the next day. The past 1.5 years I wasn't sure what was going to happen to me. I was falsely accused on TWO accounts of Article 120 sexual Assault. Mr. Conway was by my side the entire time, he replied to my text or phone calls within minutes. He is the BEST of the BEST and he truly cares about achieving Justice. I honestly don't know what I would've done without this team. If you're ever questioning that you may or may not need a lawyer.. Just hire them, they'll take great care of you. Thanks”

  • Not guilty of Article 120

    “For the past year I have been suffering from depression, not knowing where I am going to end up in my career, my mothers broken heart along mine and preventing me from deploying twice. These are just a fraction of what I have gone through because of a female I met in deployment that wanted revenge for me not having mutual feelings towards her and along with some other factors. So she falsely accused me of sexual assault. I swear Daniel Conway is an angel that was sent to help me. There is no one like Daniel Conway when it comes to relaying the truth to the judge and panel. The truth came out like a song put together perfectly. By the third day the panel already had the impression that it was all fabricated. By Friday I was not guilty. I am grateful for MCM Military Law firm because they saved my career and my mothers future and well being. You won’t regret doing business with MCM Military Law.”

  • There is HOPE!

    “Mr. Conway is the BEST Lawyer in the game HANDS DOWN. I contacted Gary Myers, Daniel Conway & Associates after my charges were preferred. I was facing an allegation of the “Intent to commit Sexual Assault”. Due to the climate of the “ME TOO” movement, this was a big deal and everyone within my chain of command began to distance themselves. I began to feel hopeless, so I decided to hire civilian counsel. Within two hours after I submitted my information online, Mr. Myers returned my call. He assured me that everything would be fine and said that Mr. Conway would be contacting me shortly; which he did. Mr. Conway and I discussed the allegation and the way ahead. His meticulous attention to detail allowed him to dissect my case and extrapolate the facts. During the lead up to my trial, he analyzed the evidence and dissected the testimonies. During the case, it all sounded like a well-organized symphony. He was able to convince the jury of the many inconsistencies. Having him on my team, I felt at ease not only due to his expertise but how long that he has been practicing. I thank God that I contacted him. I was found “NOT GUILITY!””

    “I was informed by company that my Security Clearance is suspended after a background investigation. I was devastated, my job is now on the line. After contemplating doing the appeal by myself. I decided to seek representation. After doing some web research, and calling a few Lawyers and Law Services, I talked with Mr. Gary Myers, he called me back right away on a Friday afternoon! I explain the facts of my situation, while giving no guarantees he explained that he thinks he can help and that he has a very good Attorney to work my case, Mr. Brian Pristeria. After all the Lawyers I talked to Mr. Myers was the easiest to talk to, he was clear and precise, he got me focused on the information and materials I needed to send to him and Mr. Pristeria. Mr. Pristeria was Professional, detailed and easy to work with. He counseled and guided me every step of the way. When Mr. Pristeria called and told me my Clearance was granted, I literally fell out of my chair. I owe the continuation of my Career to Mr. Myers and Mr. Pristeria.

  • I would recommend this firm to any service member or federal government employee for all legal matters involving the US Government, in particular the military justice system.

    “I first became familiar with Myers, Conway, and Associates through their website mcmilitarylaw.com which I found extensively helpful as a reference for preparing for a past legal matter, nearly on par with the actual attorney I had on retainer from a reputable (and increasingly expensive) law firm at the time! When an opportunity arose to work with this firm, I contacted Mr.Myers. First impressions: A man of Integrity with an extensive background on litigation on the federal level and military judicial system. Mr. Myers basically is a living legend of the military justice system dating back to serving as counsel in the cases such as far back as the My Lai Massacre in Vietnam! His partner Daniel Conway was the one I had the pleasure to work with, and from my experiences is an excellent attorney that carries on the firm's reputation. Not only is Mr. Conway a proven effective and aggressive litigator, but he has knack for communicating and working with clients as a member of the defense team (the defendant being the most key member of said defense team) to give the team the most effective chance at a positive outcome. I would recommend this firm to any service member or federal government employee for all legal matters involving the US Government, in particular the military justice system. ”

    “Mr. Pristera gave me a voice as a sexual assault victim. For two years the Army reserve swept my case under the rug. The Army Reserve staff repeatedly lost my paperwork and failed to process simple administrative actions regarding my case. Mr. Pristera knew exactly who to contact to ensure the proper action was taken. He always responded to my questions promptly, and he was very informative. The Army Reserve staff frequently loses paperwork or delays actions until you have given up on them. Mr. Pristera makes things happen, and will not let you be ignored.”
