Celebrating the anniversary of the Scott O’Grady Rescue

Today’s post is different than most- given all of the angst raised by the SGT Bergdahl prisoner exchange, I thought that it would be worth reminding all Americans of a special moment in our military history.  You see, today is a day worth celebrating- the anniversary of the day that we brought home Scott O’Grady.

For Coasties Only

Given the unique nature of the Coast Guard’s legacy disability system, I have taken the liberty of developing a booklet providing specific action steps that are designed to help you to work with me to obtain the best possible results for you and your family.  These tips address every stage of the process and are […]

When to Hire Counsel

Today I had to break the news to three DOD service members seeking to retain counsel for formal hearings that there was no way in which I could effectively represent them in hearings that were only a week away.  You see, by the time that you reach the formal hearing stage, you have been in […]

USAF Summary FPEB Requests

The Air Force FPEB has now effectively standardized my customary practice of submitting formal case outlines with exhibits in order to determine whether a summary decision- an “on the record “decision- may be granted.  It is critical that you and your attorney ensure that this information is provided to the FPEB at least 72 hours […]

Drafting Winning Case Outlines

Prior to every formal hearing, I always provide board members with an overview of our case that outlines our goals and discusses the evidence supporting our contentions.  For every condition that you seek to have found unfitting at a formal hearing, it is necessary for us to provide board members with a clear, cogent analysis […]

Navy Formal Recon Petitions

In Navy PEB cases, I always file a formal reconsideration petition prior to formal hearings. This is a “second bite at the apple” should your initial reconsideration petition be denied on the IPEB level.  If our petition is granted, then we will receive a summary decision- an “on the record decision”.  If it is not […]
