"He is an articulate pitbull in the courtroom"
I know Mr Healy quite well. He represented me in a case where the odds were stacked against me. This was the most difficult time of my life considering some other circumstances that were added on. However, he fought for me tooth and nail even though his caseload was very high at the time. It seemed he devoted every ounce of effort to find me justice and in the end, because of his efforts, I was fully acquitted of several charges. I will never forget that feeling for as long as I live. Upon the announcement of the verdict I nearly collapsed. My career, my life, my future was completely in his hands and he took it as seriously as I did. He is an articulate pitbull in the courtroom. I highly recommend his services if you expect to have any chance of seeing the justice you truly deserve.

Fights for justice
Gerry was as good as advertised. He used the plaintiffs witnesses to our (defendants) advantage. There was no need to call ‘our’ witnesses because his cross examination exposed the weakness of the lawsuit. I’d highly recommend Gerry for any military case.

Perfect
Mr. Healy and his associate Mr. Hodge effectively saved my Naval career after I was informed that I had tested positive for Delta-8 THC. Their knowledge alone of the military justice system made a huge difference in my case. Combined with their tact and overall skill as practicing military attorneys, my case was settled in the most favorable way possible, which is not something that can always be said for these situations. Mr. Healy and his office has granted me full security in my career and I could never be more grateful for the job that was done.

Excellent Choice
I found Gerald through research in which we needed legal guidance for our son Our son needed guidance through what would be a difficult process if not done accurately, fairly and to be very concise to what truly occurred. We needed someone who understood the situation and how to work through a military process to ensure our sons story was told correctly to prove his innocents. Gerry contacted me in a very timely manner and was able to see and understand how to help us. My son and I worked with Chip, Gerry's partner at the firm and we were treated with such care, such commitment and they did everything right to ensure a very successful outcome! My son was comforted by Chip and Gerry through the long and stressful process. We were always kept up to date on happenings and what the next steps would be. If I ever had a question or doubt, Chip and Gerry were there to respond quickly to give us the FACTS and hope I needed. You will not be disappointed by having Gerry and Chip on your side. THANK YOU Gerry and Chip for all you did!

So Grateful for His Counsel
I would like to start by expressing how grateful I am for Mr. Healy's counsel and dedication to my case. I was accused of sexual harassment and fraternization with a junior enlisted soldier while at Camp Casey, South Korea. Mr. Healy took his time to review all the evidence and put together a very strong defense case for me during my Military Separation Board. He was able to argue valid points with confidence and vigor against the government, despite their best efforts to put me down. He is great at keeping in touch and staying positive and motivating. Mr. Healy will also give you the best- and worst-case scenarios but always keeps a positive mindset and fights to get you the best outcome possible. He was able to get the charges unsubstantiated and keep me retained in the military. Even after all was said and done he was still available for questions and counsel. Thank you, Mr. Healy.

Amazing! Fantastic Attorney with Powerful Board Presentation that Saved my Career and my Family's Future!
I highly recommend Mr. Healy to anyone that has Military Law issues as he was insanely knowledgeable during the entire process and made me and my family feel very comfortable during the process. From the first time we contacted Mr. Healy, we knew immediately that we wanted to hire him as our attorney, which we did, and we had spoke with several others prior to contacting Mr. Healy. He was able to help and explain everything in a manner we understood. He was very professional the entire time and exuded confidence during the board and has a very commanding presence in the room. He is a very fast thinker and was able to provide answers and consultation in the last minute. It was almost like a scene from a movie, and regardless of what side you were on, you felt and understood everything that was said by Mr. Healy. He captured the board members attention and never once did I notice the board members look around or look bored; he had their attention from start to finish and it had a huge impact on getting the results we only had hoped of getting before hiring him. The results I received from the board was the best possible outcome in my favor and saved my career and my family's future. I recommend that if you need an attorney in military law and sex crimes, to consult with and hire Mr. Healy immediately!

The Best Choice for a Military Defense Counsel
After getting involved in an investigation with my command which would result in a Special Court Martial, I didn't know who else to turn to. In my time of need, I found Mr. Healy's law firm website and turned to him for help. After seven long months of waiting, the week of my Court Martial came and he was ready to fight for my rights. He was confident, fearless, and tore apart the government's theory piece by piece right in front of me in the courtroom. He saved my career, and I would get my original orders to Japan back. 10/10 would recommend him to any active duty personnel seeking legal assistance.

Quality of the Highest Tier
10/10 would recommend. I was extremely fortunate to stumble upon Mr. Healy during the early stages of my legal process. From the beginning, Mr. Healy was with me every step of the way, guiding me through the chaos of the military legal system. He broke down complex problems into easily digestible concepts that I would normally be hard pressed to understand. His extensive knowledge of the military legal system shows in his confidence and competency both in and out of the courtroom. Every step my command took against me, Mr. Healy was there to meet them with equal to greater push back. My process involved challenging a multitude of 6105s, adverse fitreps, and a final confrontation at an Administrative Separations Board. I'm happy to report a victory at the board that was originally thought not possible by other representation. To quote my military counsel upon achieving a victory at the board "Of all the civilian representation I have seen, both good and bad, he was one of the best." If there is one major takeaway, Mr. Healy gets results. If you want to win then you need the most suited Subject Matter Expert on your side. To any who reads this, you're already in the right place. If you hire Mr. Healy, you will be hiring Quality of the Highest Tier.

General Court Martial
In November of 2020 I reached out and hired Mr. Healy to represent me in a General Court Martial facing a Sexual Assault charge. Throughout that entire time Mr. Healy did everything in his power to prepare and keep me informed on everything. My life was on the line and I trusted him with everything, confident that the outcome would be in our favor. Mr. Healy truly cares for and fights for his clients. I saw that firsthand and I would undoubtedly recommend him in a second to anybody, who just like me, is fighting for their life knowing they are innocent. Mr. Healy was not only my attorney, but a friend who fought for me and got me my life back. I’m very thankful to have met Mr. Healy and if anyone is in a situation where they know they want to fight for their life, Mr. Healy is the person for you.

Hands Down Best Lawyer
I was facing a court martial. I had nowhere left to turn. I was on my last leg, but my CSM told me to keep fighting. So that’s exactly what I did, I found Mr. Healy through online searching and did some research on him. Turns out he’s exactly what I needed, so I hired him immediately. Mr. Healy gave me hope again but we were never certain. After what felt like a lifetime, the day has come to fight. As I sat there and watched Mr. Healy do what he does best I was in complete awe. I knew he was good, but now I was seeing exactly how good. He fought tooth and nail for me and never backed down from the fight. Through his tedious work he resulted on top of my court martial and was able to prove a not guilty finding from the jury. I recommend Mr. Healy to anyone in a serious situation such as myself. He will not waiver or give up fighting, no matter with he had my back 100% and I cannot thank him enough for giving me my life back.

Exceptional Legal Team!
Gerald Healy and Josh Hill were outstanding. They always took their time to explain everything down to its finest details. They both ensured that I was always up to date in my case and seemed to be always one step ahead. When time sensitive situations arose this team truly got right to it and expeditiously solved the problem with first time success and never took a step back. I have worked with several firms over the years, but the Healy Law Group is by far one that out shines the rest. I am truly satisfied with their service and would recommend them to anyone in need of legal representation or advice. Well Done Gentleman!

He helped me stay in the Navy!
I was charged with article 112a and almost immediately I contacted MJA after reading their countless reviews. They were able to contact my command and get my CO to push back my NJP date. Within that time, they talked to my roommates, my brother, and my chain command and compiled a lot evidence to prove that it was an accidental ingestion. They were very knowledgeable and helped me understand everything that was going to happen, from the good to the bad. They sent a package to my CO and he used the evidence they found to help determine their decision. With everything the CO had received he deemed it an accidental ingestion and my NJP was dismissed! I would highly recommend them if you are looking to stay in the military!

The Calm in the Storm
My husband found himself wrapped up in a terrible situation at work being falsely accused of a serious crime that threatened the career he has spent over a decade building as well as his future as we knew it. Facing a Court Martial for something he did not do, we were backed into a corner. Then we came across Gerry's profile, I called and we instantly felt like we were in good hands. He quickly and professionally answered all of our questions and assured us we would be able to get through this. Throughout the entire process he was in aggressive pursuit of the truth and didn't stop until it was heard. He was always willing to discuss matters with us and didn't let any obstacle get in his way. He has such a understanding of military law and his knowledge is unparalleled. He directed us throughout the whole process and has a way of gathering information that leads to the ultimate goal. I am so glad that we found Gerry and recommend him to anyone who needs help. Not only did he find the truth which cleared my husbands name but he saved his career and way of life . He is worth every penny and even worked with us as the legal battle morphed and changed. He made a trip to be present with my husband during a reading that he did not have to be there for because it made my husband more comfortable to have his representation. He truly cares about his clients and will not let you down. Thank you again Gerry, from the bottom of our hearts we are so happy we found you. God Bless.

Worth every cent if you need a military defense attorney!
I had the unfortunate experience to become involved in an investigation on a Marine Corps Officer while I was TAD with the Marine Corps. The command investigator called me into his office to make a statement and refused to speak to me with an attorney present. About 7 months later, I was called by my department head and informed that I needed to go sign a charge sheet and the plan was to take me to XOI in 3 days. I completed the charge sheet and finally was able to see the investigation completed by another command and on the Marine Corps officer and I was informed of the charges. My chain of command told me that it was going to be dismissed and to accept responsibility for the things I could. The day of the XOI, there was an acting XO present. At the end of it, he recommended to send it to NJP. The chain of command told me that the acting XO stated he would have dropped it but he was just acting and did not have the authority to not send it to NJP. As I knew the allegations were not true and I had multiple witnesses who had not been a part of the original investigation, I immediately began looking for a civilian attorney to help with the process. I came across the MJA website and put in a request for a consult. Gerry called that night and spent over an hour on the phone with me discussing the case until that point. Although I think I wanted to believe the chain of command, he pointed out I had reservations about it or else I wouldn’t have called. Gerry was able to point out that the information was presented at XOI and it was still referred to NJP. He listed the options of what the outcomes could be and felt that the charges would never warrant the level of a court martial. As an officer, if I refused NJP, it would be sent to a show cause hearing or board of inquiry to show what I should be allowed to remain in the Navy. Gerry stated if the command was going to drop it at NJP as promised by the chain of command, then the CO would dismiss it when I refused NJP and if it was referred as he thought it would be, then I would have known I made the right choice to refuse NJP. Gerry was right and the CO sent it for an administrative separation for my misconduct, but thanks to Gerry’s advice, I didn’t have substantiated charges as I had not gone to NJP where I would have no rights, It was not referred to court martial. I received the notice right as I was informed that I was on 48 hours notice to deploy in response to the COVID response. Gerry was able to get an extension for the response, and then was able to contact the witness I provided. His expertly written brief was worth everything I had paid for and was written so much better then I could have ever hoped to have written myself. Gerry was able to point out the flaws with the command’s lack of investigation, was able to cite case law to support why the charges were not supported and forced the command to look at my entire career. It was submitted and the day that Gerry followed up with the Command JAG, I was notified that the CO was dropping the charge for dereliction of duty and would issue a NPLOC for the Conduct Unbecoming Charge and a report of no misconduct was routed to PERS. I cannot thank Gerry enough for the work he put into my response and saving my career! I would recommend him to anyone and vouch that he is worth every penny to save your career.

Attorney For son's case in Germany
Mr. Healy is an amazing attorney. I reached out to Mr. Healy not knowing who to turn to on my son's allegations while serving in the Air Force in Germany. After speaking to Attorney Healy and given the information needed to see where we would go from that point to be able to proceed. After reviewing everything and doing extensive research on his background and cases, we decided to hire him. Mr. Healy was able to fly out to Germany to represent my son and win his case. This case was not an open shut case since the beginning. Sex crimes are very serious and when falsely accused of such a crime this is very hard to prove. But with the representation of Attorney Healy, he was able to help my son and give him his life back. I highly recommend Attorney Healy if you are looking for someone that will fight for what is right and just. Thank you Mr. Healy for the amazing work you did on this case and giving back my son, his family and myself peace of mind.

Best Defense Lawyer, Bar None!
About a year ago I was served with a Letter of Reprimand for a false Article 120b accusation of sexual assault. I was served with discharge paperwork and knew that I was going to need someone good to represent me at my administrative discharge board hearing. After some research online I came across Gerald's site and it seemed as though it was exactly what I needed. When I first contacted Gerald he wasted no time to provide me with excellent advice. He was extremely professional and answered every question I had. After our consultation I made the best decision in my life and hired Gerald to defend me in my Article 120b board hearing. His knowledge of the judicial system and his skills are untouchable. He is a fierce defense lawyer that will not disappoint you when it matters most. His skills saved my career and my life. He is very straight forward, honest and trustworthy. He is bold and upfront with you and he will tell you exactly where you stand and what direction you should go. He has tenacity coupled with a degree of benevolence but never loses site of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for his client. He is honorable and extremely knowledgeable. Straight forward is an understatement, he is a brilliant attorney who sticks to the facts that matter. He will cut you off quickly on the frivolous fluff that so many clients want to vent about. He is well known for being a fierce attorney and he did not let me down in my trial. I would never hesitate to recommend Gerald Healy to anyone out there going through some legal issues. You will not regret the decision and it may be your life he saves next. Gerald, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

An Excellent Lawyer
Gerald Healy represented my son in a very serious court martial case. He walked with us each step of the way from the beginning to the end. He put in numerous hours and left no stone overturned when working on my son's case. During the court martial hearing it was evident that he is a skilled lawyer and works hard for the families he represents. I highly recommend Mr. Healy if you are ever in need of a great lawyer. It was especially helpful that Mr. Healy has extensive experience with military court proceedings both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. That was evident in our son's full acquittal.

My career as well as my life was in jeopardy, he was fought for me tooth and nail to bring truth to the court that I was innocent and was being wrongfully charged. I, as well as my family cannot thank him enough for his hard work and dedication.
