I can't put into words how happy I am to have hired the Bilecki Tipon team. They were very diligent throughout my entire case and fought hard for my retirement and my career. The military defense teams are very stretched and lack the resources to effectively defend their clients. Mr. Bilecki is a fantastic lawyer and works really hard to get the best possible outcome even when it looks hopeless. I will be retiring now when a few months ago I thought I would lose it all. Thank you Mr. Bilecki and Mr. Tipon for saving my career!

Mr. Bilecki and Mr. Tipon are the two best lawyers that I have met. My case was very complex and it lasted a total of 12 months. They spent many hours pre-gaming and coming up with an intense strategy to help me defeat the Article 120's that I faced. On the day of the trial, they told me there strategy and I was amazed at how complex it was going to be. Once the trial started, Mr. Bilecki gave the opening statements and by the look on the jury's face, they were amazed at his vast knowledge about my case. It was truly amazing. Came next was Mr. Tipon with the best cross-examination that I have ever heard of. Did he not only totally defeat the alleged victim with his cross examination, he also gave the witness more than he ever knew what was coming. The defense tried to re-counter with a strategy of their own, but the damage and effectiveness was already done by Mr. Tipon. Next came the closing statement to the jury. Mr. Bilecki was once again amazing. HIs delivery of the story and the facts that came along with it was unbelievable. It was as if he was writing a book right in front of my eyes about the case. I definitely recommend this law firm to anybody that ever needs a solid and productive team!!! Thank you once again for everything that u have done for me!!!

Mr. Bilecki and Mr. Tipon came highly recommended through a family member’s attorney friend who said, “They’re the best.” They both more than lived up to those words. They truly work well together as a team. We appreciated the countless hours of preparatory work, administration, research, and counsel they both gave on behalf of our son. Their attention to detail, thoroughness, and persistence in revealing the truth in our son’s situation is second to none. It brought about the correct verdict rendered by the jury. No words can adequately express the relief and joy in our hearts to hear the jury state: “. . . on all charges – not guilty.” Our son is finally free to move forward with his life and pursue the dreams that God has given him, to include serving his country by fulfilling his military obligation with his head held high and with no obstacle in his path.
Mr. Bilecki’s opening statement clearly laid out our son’s case using vivid, metaphorical illustrations, and his closing argument very convincingly and excellently summarized all of the evidence pointing to our son’s innocence. Additionally, he was able elicit the truth from a witness during his cross-examination.
Mr. Tipon’s ability to cross-examine each of the prosecution’s witnesses with precision and logic, revealing inconsistencies and fabrications, thereby guiding each testimony to a truthful conclusion, was incomparable.
It didn’t take long into the court martial proceedings for us to realize we had chosen the BEST possible defense team for our son.
You’ve heard the expression, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” In this case, it took an entire legal defense team led by two extremely competent and experienced attorneys, Timothy Bilecki and Noel Tipon, to keep our son from a future stained with permanent defamatory labels – labels that would be incorrect descriptions of our son’s true character.

Facing a court martial or adverse action? Well, READ THIS!!!!!!!!! I must first start by saying, I rarely ever write reviews on anything. This time around I felt compelled to write a review in effort help my fellow Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guard and DOD civilian comrades.
Here is my story…….As a Sergeant First Class, while deployed to Afghanistan, one female Soldier made an allegation that I had touched her inappropriately. As a result CID was called in and conducted a “so called” investigation into the allegation. CID’s investigation entailed taking the statement of my accuser and conducting a canvas interview that was essentially a dragnet to solicit any information to solidify the claim of my accuser. The dragnet produced four additional female Soldiers that made allegations that I was inappropriate with them. At no time during the investigation an attempt was made to determine the truthfulness of the allegations made against me; only efforts to bolster the allegations of my accusers. At this point, I was understandably distressed and frustrated over the allegations. According to CID, there were three allegations of abusive sexual contact and two allegations of assault impending against me. Simultaneously, the chain of command ordered and conducted a 15-6 investigation into the same matters of the CID’s investigation. Yes!! On one end, I was being investigated by CID for an alleged criminal offenses and on the other end, investigated for the same matter via a 15-6 investigation. The 15-6 was concluded first, the IO determined allegations of abusive sexual contact was unfounded; but, concluded that I created a hostile work environment. I received a GOMR for the findings of the 15-6 while I was awaiting trial. Despite two comprehensive appeals to the CG, relating the results of 15-6 did not meet the preponderance of evidence standard and preempted my impending court-martial depriving me of due process. After six months of anguish and distress, CID finally concluded their investigation; subsequently, my chain of command referred charges against me; three specifications of abusive sexual contact consummated by battery (violation of Article 128). After 19 years of service as a senior non-commissioned officer I was repulsed by the command’s decision to refer charges against me for these unfounded allegations.
Immediately, I contacted TDS and met with a military defense lawyer, they instantly informed me that the government was deliberately “stacking the deck against me,” in effort to dishonorably discharge me out of the military; despite having 19 years of honorable service. A conviction for the charges would entail forfeiture of my retirement, SGLI Bill, all VA benefits. I would also be required to register as a sex offender, serve jail time and face the prospect of never getting a decent job due to a felony conviction. Needless to say, I could not fathom this scenario. After two weeks of consulting with my TDS appointed attorney and sensing a slight disinterest to doggedly fight the charges against me. I decided I would look into hiring a civilian attorney; unknown to me at the time this should not have been a consideration, it should have been an absolute requirement…….So, you may ask, why hire a civilian attorney?
HERE”S WHAT I REALIZED FOLLOWING MY SIX MONTH ORDEAL:
After all, if the government is trying to take away your freedom or your livelihood, the stakes are very, very, very high. I cannot stress this enough, with so much on the line, you must get the best legal defense you can get. Through my ordeal, I realized, my military defense lawyer was truly adversarial against the prosecutor and the charges I was facing. However, depending on the severity of the charges your appointed military lawyer may be required to do the unthinkable by challenge/subpoena the CG as well as other general officers to prove your innocence, as well

I have served my country for almost ten years. I have fought this war on terrorism for almost a decade on all of it's fronts. I have stood by the Army put my life on the line and assumed it was mutual, I was wrong. One day I was called in by CID for a "few" questions so I went to speak with them, it turned out they kept me for over seven hours trying to force a confession out of me. I a Sr. SSG was being accused of rape, a crime I would never commit. CID was not trying to hear a word I said in fact they only had a few minutes so called "evidence" the day of trial from the 7 hour interrogation. I made a crucial mistake talking to CID they are not there to ever help soldiers and I thought I was doing the right thing by answering questions. I immediately started looking for an attorney, the best attorney I could find! Guess what I did. Mr. Bilecki started looking into my case and tearing apart the gray areas the government was trying to use. He and his team are the most professional and hard hitting attorneys around and took me from being worried and sick to my stomache to feeling impowered. The government will tilt the scale in its oen favor for a conviction. The prosecution was not only the two in the chairs, they brought six others to aid and coach the whole time!!!!! A total of eight attorneys!!!!! It did not phase Mr.Bilecki in the slightest he destroyed the prosecutions flawed theories, tore through the lies of the alleged victim and pulled the truth out of even the governments witnesses. I am telling you if you for whatever reason are in need of a defense attorney for a court martial this is the man to call, the man that will tip the scale in your corner. I would Recommend Tim to anyone over any other, his results don't lie. Thank you Tim for everything you have done for me, and never backing down when looking out for me. I am forever in your debt.STOP READING AND CALL THIS ATTORNEY NOW!

Mr. Bilecki goal is to win, to get you a full acquittal and nothing less. No prosecutor, judge, or panel would ever deny that that is the ultimate goal of any defense lawyer. Mr. Bilecki fights to get that result for you and will work day and night to deliver. I was his client for roughly 2 years due to the incompetence of the government. Mr. Bilecki fees were a bit pricey but at the end his fire power was well worth every penny. I was charged with nearly 20 BAH fraud and larceny charges. In the initial phase I thought it would be impossible to win this case. The government stacked so many cards against me which made it nearly impossible to overcome. Mr Bilecki didn't back down he truly believed we could take the case to trial and win it. He was 100% honest with me throughout this ongoing process. Mr. Bilecki aggressively represented me at the Article 32 hearing, fighting every bit of the way with every witness testifying against me. Over and over Mr. Bilecki showed that each and every witness claiming false allegations against me were incredible and lying. Upon my trial being recommend to a GCM he spent countless hours preparing my case and me in case I needed to take the stand. Mr. Bilecki and I had a very difficult case that required a lot of research and required lots of dedication. Mr. Bilecki would talk to me day or night regardless of time. He would listen to my concerns and when it came to making decisions he listened to me, advised me and together we came up with my defense. I was acquitted of all charges. I'm positive that my case in any other hands would not have had the results I received. Mr. Bilecki is the best Civilian Defense Attorney hands down in the United States of America. If he get me acquitted of 20 counts of BAH fraud and larceny he can do the same for you!

I acquired Mr. Bilecki back in June 2012 for a year ongoing case, facing serious sex charges by the UCMJ and despite evidence Mr. Bilecki took on the case. From beginning to end his confidence was superb. Mr. Bilecki immediately put his team together to turn the case upside down. I was given multiple deals to plead guilty by the government, but his experience and intuition kept this case rolling all the way to Article 120. Before the Article 120, he was able to have a significant amount of the charges dropped against me. Despite some of the charges being dropped, I was still facing at least 10 years in prison. At the Article 120, witness and evidence was overwhelming. In my own eyes there was no hope. But on the other hand Mr. Bilecki will eat the case for breakfast, lunch, and dinner until he finds a way to succeed. After three long days of trial, I was found not guilty, all charges dropped and given a second chance in life. I am so thankful for what Mr. Bilecki did for me if it wans't for him I wouldn't be where I am today. My family and I are very grateful. If the overall rating would have an extended scale, I would give Mr. Bilecki a 7 out of 5.
