I am a Specialist in the US Army. I was wrongfully accused of a sexual assault and several other charges were included, all false. After the initial investigation I attempted to help CID, thinking that they were there to simply get the truth. Unfortunately they had a different agenda and, after several hours of interrogation, they got two false confessions out of me. Unknowing the process I had no representation until after being read my charges and did not retain Tim until after the Article 32. I spoke with several law firms and lawyers beforehand, all telling me it was basically an unwinnable case. Tim and one other said it was winnable, but would be very difficult. I chose Tim not based on his reviews, but his personality and eagerness to take my case. He was honest through the whole process and explained everything he was doing. He also worked with me on payment and was understanding of my financial situation. He worked tirelessly and well into the night on many occasions. When trial came he showed his skill and abilities, which far exceeded my expectations. In the end I was acquitted of all charges and specifications, despite Tim’s small window to prepare. No other lawyer could have done what he did.

A mother's worst nightmare is when she receives a phone call with bad news about her child. Needless to say, that phone call advised me that my son was awaiting sentencing - and only three days later. Time was no longer an ally and I had to act fast.
Needless to say, my sister and I immediately jumped on the next flight to Incheon Korea.
After arriving and checking in to our hotel room, the hard part began. It was now Saturday, and I still had to research and find the best lawyer an educator could afford. We barrier it fown go two lawyers and then researched their cases and outcomes. Both firms had an impeccable resume; we chose Belecki and Tipon: he was "reachable" on a Sunday afternoon; he believed my son had a hard, but winnable case; and he didn't overcharge us - yes, he had to begin working that same afternoon.
Monday arrived although Attorney Belecki was not physically there, he instructed my son on how to stop the sentencing, made the necessary phone calls to the military justice court and filed the paperwork needed to secure another court date.
I would love to say that my fears had come to an end; for I'd hired a well-known and respected attorney. But then I heard the charges and saw the evidence against my son: his weapon, 10 witnesses testifying against him (even the three friends he was with, 1 he was protecting), a forced, signed statement of guilt, a court appointed attorney and my son - a young soldier, barely a year out of high school.
........those 10 witnesses against him, became 10 pieces of evidence for him; the villain, became the hero; and the accused - NOT guilty!
I give Attorney Tim Belecki of Belecki & Tipon 5 ⭐️. Although my faith knows GOD made it all possible, thanks for allowing Him to use you to saving my son's life.

I had the great opportunity to work with Tim when he was Senior Defense Counsel for the Pacific Rim Region (Korea, Japan). Tim is one of the best military law attorneys in the world, no question. He is intensely aggressive, but controlled, with a keen legal mind that is incomparable. He is a great lawyer, and his results reflect that.

Tim Bilecki is a hard hitting criminal lawyer that has well deserved reputation for being a highly skilled and aggressive court martial defense lawyer defending serious criminal cases. When I worked with him in Korea and Japan, JAG prosecutors feared fighting him at trial. Why? He comes out fighting and often gets an outstanding result. He has an exceptional track record in cases where the odds are stacked against his client. I highly endorse Tim if you are facing court martial or criminal charges.
