  • I was discharge from the Navy for unlawful entry into the military. They claimed that I did not tell them about my criminal hist

    I had to travel to Philadelphia to obtain my wavers before I was allowed to swear in. Without notice, I was discharged with a Regular under Honorable Conditions discharge.

    William’s Answer

    You haven't asked a question, so not sure what you are seeking. Also, there is no such thing as a "Regular under Honorable Conditions" Discharge. Recommend you have a military law attorney review your discharge paperwork so you can ask whatever questions you have.

    William’s Answer

    A lot of it depends on how long your husband has been in the military and the exact grounds for which they are moving to separate him. They will appoint him a military lawyer, and there are several excellent civilian attorneys in the San Diego area that could also assist.

    You were not harmed, so you can't sue. Assuming you are an employee at will, you could get fired, so be careful.

    Your question is hard to follow. Even if this is considered a "failure to exercise reasonable judgment" what are you trying to accomplish? Without knowing more it is hard to answer your hypothetical.

  • Since it was a flat fee, how can I know how much would I be getting back? Military Law

    I hired a military lawyer that I found here on avvo a few months ago. I paid a lot of money because my military career and characterization of discharge is on the line. The attorney have been very unresponsive and never has any update or new devel...

    William’s Answer

    I am sorry to hear of this. Most of us here on AVVO are very responsive. I would recommend that you call the attorney's office and set a time to speak with them and let them know your concerns. But in the long run, it is your case and you need to be comfortable with your attorney. If you decide to make a change you should be compensated for any unused portion of the fee.
