Attorney Representing You Before Administrative Separation Boards

The easiest way to think about an administrative separation board hearing is that the military is attempting to fire you. The outcome of the hearing can have a large effect on the rest of your life.

Military law entitles you to legal representation at your hearing. If you call Miller & Illikainen in Fayetteville, North Carolina, you can have an experienced military law attorney who still serves his country on your side. Gregg Illikainen has experience as a military lawyer, prosecutor and criminal defense attorney, making him a premier choice for soldiers serving at Fort Bragg facing these hearings.

Providing You The Guidance You Need When So Much Is At Stake

An administrative board hearing can take several days, during which your attorney will be able to cross-examine witnesses and present witnesses. If it is not possible to prevent you from being discharged, you will likely receive one of the following types of discharges:

  • Honorable: This type of discharge shows that you faithfully fulfilled your duties to the military. Many soldiers who receive an involuntary discharge for medical reasons also receive honorable discharges.
  • General: This shows that you completed your duties, but did not live up to the standards the military expects. This type of discharge can lead to prejudice against you in civilian life.
  • Other than honorable: This is also given to soldiers discharged for reasons like misconduct. If you receive an other than honorable discharge, you will not be able to re-enlist and may not be able to serve in the National Guard or Reserves.

Mr. Illikainen will fight to get you the best result possible. If keeping you enlisted is not ideal, then he will present a strong case in an effort to earn you an honorable discharge, which will allow you to move to civilian life with confidence. His knowledge of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and military judicial procedures means you will have a strong advocate in your corner to provide you with strong representation when so much is at stake.
