Before any official disciplinary action is taken against you for misconduct, you will likely face an inquiry conducted by your commander. These investigations can take many forms, but they all have one thing in common: It is important that you quickly get out in front of them.
If you are facing any type of commander's inquiry, such as an AR 15-6 inquiry, you will benefit from the representation of Gregg Illikainen. He is an experienced military law attorney who is also a former commissioned officer with tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Based in Fayetteville, Mr. Illikainen can counsel you through the inquiry, including determining whether it is in your best interest to give an official statement to the investigator. He can also conduct his own investigation into your alleged actions and use those findings to either convince your commander to take no further action or use the findings to be prepared for judicial proceedings.
The Leading Edge
A commander's inquiry usually leads to a disciplinary proceeding, including courts-martial, Article 15 or General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand. All of these can lead to severe penalties that can derail your career. That is why it is so important to protect your rights as soon as possible.
Just like we tell our criminal defense clients, if you learn you are under investigation, do not wait until you are arrested to take action. The earlier that we can begin collecting evidence and building a strong case for you, the better.
