Former military, now an attorney practicing military law. I have a sincere passion for helping service members defend against UCMJ and administrative matters, including courts-martial, NJP/, GOMOR rebuttal, administrative separation / discharge matters, Boards of Inquiry (BOIs), and eveything in between. The military justice system is a profoundly sacred area of the law and it is an honor to practice within it.

Beat CID, Court Martial, & ADSEP
After hiring Jason, he was on the case and determined every angle to provide a defense. Jason was highly professional, prompt in returning responses and guiding me through the entire process. He is very knowledgeable and immediately explained how my rights had been violated. With military, everything is a "hurry up and wait", although Jason surely got their attention, and ultimately won the case! I was able to get honorably discharged through the med. board. No hidden fees, straightforward!

Army E-4, Avoided Court-Martial and ADSEP
Hired jason after I had to see CID but didn't know anything about them until the day after the interview with the CID. I was under the investigation for fraud and many other things. I didn't know what to do at that time so I started to look for military attorneys and I came across Jason's profile who had actually faught for one of my sergeant for a court martial case and Jason actually got him acquitted with 2 cases against him. I was happy that Jason fought for me and I got out with medical discharge and honorable. I would highly recommend jason for anyone. He is hard working person and he will try everything to help anyone who needs it.

Coast Guard Administrative Separation
Simply put Jason is the best friend you hope you never need. He will work quickly and efficiently on whatever you hire him for. You will receive the most favorable outcome only due to his hard work and proficiency in military law. During my time with Jason he spent many nights working late on my case. I had very limited time to prepare a case. The “cards” were not in my favor. I was facing ADSEP and I was on my way out of the service. I contacted Jason and he managed to tip the scales just enough to give a chance that had hope for a positive outcome, the best chance I ever had for success.

Life saver
Lawyer gave great advice and peace of mind. He laid out my options plainly so that i could make an informed decision and followed up when my case was ultimately dropped to ensure my record was clean. Totally worth the money.

ABCMR Application
Jason helped me with a correction of military records application (ABCMR) and the experience was awesome. When dealing with lawyers, most are pretty deadpan. What sets Jason apart is his passion for his clients and the law. He genuinely gets excited about his work. That passion earned my trust.

The best civilian lawyer consultation I had, hands down.
Last year was easily one of the most stressful experiences I've endured in my entire life. The amount of fear, uncertainty, and helplessness that I experienced is inexplicable. After I was assigned my trail defense lawyer from the Army, I knew I had to find civilian legal representation. For a lack of better words, my dog could have defended me better than the initial lawyer I received. The quality and effort put forth is night and day difference, if you're going through a court martial you're doing yourself an injustice not to hire someone such as Jason to represent you. After talking to at least 4-5 civilian lawyers I quickly found out that hiring a civilian lawyer is expensive. I'm not writing this to tell you that Jason's firm is inexpensive. However, I am writing this because I feel compelled to advocate on Jason's character. This man was thee ONLY civilian lawyer that actual cared about me and what I was going through. It wasn't just a "here's the price you want it or not? ok bye!". Although Jason could have easily went the same direction as all the other lawyers I talked to. Instead this man genuinely cared, he listened to my circumstances and was not only extremely empathetic, he went above and beyond. He significantly helped my understanding of the process and gave some outstanding advice. He spent hours of his personal time talking to me on the phone and doing his own research, not once but MANY times. Although he knew I couldn't afford the costs, he still cared and essentially walked with me through the now distant nightmare of my court martial. When I knew Jason was not just in this for the money, but actually cared about his clients it legitimately restored my faith in humanity. I knew not only was I talking to an extremely intelligent man, I was conversing with an outstanding man of character. If you're going through something similar and you can make it work, you want Jason and his firm representing you. If you're not happy with your military lawyer, the worst thing you can do is nothing at all. Don't assume the military is going to take care of you, they won't. Pick up the phone and give Jason a call.

Very knowledgeable and caring
I had a great experience with Jason Greene. When I approached him with a situation that I was dealing with, he was attentive to me and was very professional and knowledgeable. Not only did he go out of his way to find the answers and solution to my situation, he offered advice as to what I could do and what the possible outcome could be. Doing this, he put me more at ease and I felt that if I would have not contacted him I would have been worse off. When it comes to military law, I hold him in high regards to the area of specialty as well as to how hard working he is for his clients. Overall, Jason in my eyes is top notch and is an asset to anyone that uses him for any news related to his area of specialty.

Excellent Attorney
Don’t let the few reviews fool you, Jason Greene is a highly experienced attorney. Every case is unique and mine was no different. Starting from an allegation that resulted in an investigation, which turned into a Field Grade Article 15, and led to a Summary Court Martial, I had spoken to many different attorneys beforehand. I spoke with Jason and he had the confidence that the others didn’t. I hired him right before the investigation had closed and I am glad that I did. I spoke with a TDS attorney, they had told me to just take the Article 15 and be done with it. I had many conference calls with Jason and Stephen Carpenter before turning down the Article 15. I feel that I made the right choice. That’s when the ball started to roll and turned into a Court Martial. The government had the cards stacked against us, but Jason had pushed back. The government had wanted the trial to happen as soon as possible, Jason requested a reasonable delay. That gave him time to speak with witnesses and get a clear picture of the situation. He also requested the government to elaborate on a relatively vague charge. The government responded initially unfairly, but Jason had objected and the government had corrected the response. Trial day had come and Jason knocked it out of the park with cross examination. The key government witness’s story had changed when Jason had brought up a strong point. It led to the witness admitting that there was never unfairness that occurred. This created a very reasonable argument when other witnesses had testified as well. Once the defense rested, I had a good gut feeling. Jason had done an outstanding job not just in the courtroom, but the previous months leading up to the trial as well. When the verdict was reached, it was a full acquittal of both charges. Hiring Jason Greene was the best decision I made. I can honestly say that even if you think you are screwed, Jason will work hard to fight for you.

SHARP related General Court Martial
Jason is someone that you want by your side, without him I don’t think that I would have my life and career back. During the summer of 2018 I was suspected and placed under investigation for sexual assault while serving overseas. I was transferred units and pretty much left to die alone with these unfounded accusations. During that time, the investigation had taken so long that I finished my 9 month rotation and was sent back stateside. The investigation results didn’t come out until April the following year! Even though said report had no real evidence to back up the accusations, the U.S. Army still decided to proceed with an Art. 15 hearing. I simply wasn’t going to let them push me around anymore after almost a year of investigations and simply messing with my career and time. My mother introduced me to Jason from Court & Carpenter law firm. From the start I knew Jason was a good guy and an excellent attorney. The confidence that he shows and the way he carries himself really stood out compared to the lackluster attorneys that I had spoken with at TDS. Jason went straight to work, he went over every little detail that the Art. 15 packet had and with his insight, I ultimately made the decision to decline the Art. 15 and chose trial by court martial. While TDS was quick to dismiss my decision for court martial, even downright demean me, Jason was there for support and while he made sure to let me know that there wasn’t a 100% chance of victory, he still supported my decision and said that we had a fighting chance. I declined the Art. 15 Once that decision was made the ball really started rolling. Jason was there for every little step of the court martial process and made sure that we would attack this case with everything we had. He was careful yet aggressive with his methods, definitely my kind of style. He would also keep me up to date on every little detail that would come up. With his expertise we had also decided to take a polygraph from an accredited source, he used any method and resource that would ultimately help us win this case. We decided not to decline the Art. 32 hearing. Jason figured that since we’re ultimately going to court martial that we should fight this at every step, I definitely agreed. At the Art. 32 hearing, Jason was professional and had compiled so much information from the evidence report that when it came down to concluding arguments, the Army’s prosecutor had a measly 5-minute conclusion while Jason spoke for an hour straight; tearing down and pointing out flaws about the accusations. He pointed out CIDs overzealous behavior, investigation and interview methods and even used the prosecutors very own words against her, as she herself had stated in the report that there was no probable cause. While the Army deemed it necessary to proceed even beyond the Art. 32, everything Jason said that day ultimately made a difference! His words along with his strategic decision to send the polygraph results at exactly the right time are what ultimately made the Convening Authority make his decision to go against the Art. 32 ruling (proceeding with court martial). Charges were ultimately dismissed! While my situation may have been very unique, it was still amazing that Jason managed to end this Sexual Assault related General Court Martial at the Art. 32 hearing. His work and dedication ended this case swiftly, especially in a military climate where anything SHARP related can be the end of your career with possible long-term jail time. While it was ultimately my decision to decline the Art. 15, I couldn’t have done it without Jason and C&Cs support, vast experience and knowledge of military law. I love my job with the military but in terms of legal situations, the odds are stacked way against you. You definitely need an attorney such as Jason to review the facts and advise you on making the right decision. Hiring Jason Greene and C&C Law Firm was the best decision I could have made.

Navy 15 years, Positive Urinalysis for Oxycodone, Admin Sep Board
In 2015 I showed positive for oxycodone on a urinalysis. On top of this I had just found out that I was to be medically retired. Once the urinalysis result came back my whole world flipped. There was a huge risk to lose everything. I hired Mr. Carpenter, Jason was his right hand man. My case went to Captains Mast and ultimately Admin Sep Board. Jason communicated with me every step of the way and found holes in the investigation. The biggest being that the command misread the expiration date for the expiration date to fill the prescription. This won the case and I was found not guilty of any infraction. The captains mast was removed from my record. His thorough work saved my retirement and my families lively hood. I am now a student in Nursing School and it is because of the work that Jason and Mr. Carpenter did. I said it in 2015 after we had won my case and I will say it again. Jason has a bright future and anyone he represents can expect professionalism, dedication, and a very thorough attorney. He has been tutored and mentored by the best military defense attorney that there is. Jason is a winner and his clients will be as well!!!
