Searching for a military law lawyer for a clemency request? You have a limited window of opportunity for making a clemency request, and you must get started as soon as possible after receiving the verdict in your case. Your request will initially be directed to the officer who convened your court martial. The petition will seek to have your sentence suspended, mitigated to a lesser sentence or remitted. The convening authority has full powers under Article 60 of the UCMJ to modify your sentence, and an effective appeal could make an enormous difference in the outcome of your case.

You still have a right to appeal the decision if the convening authority denies your clemency request. You can submit your case to the Court of Appeals for your branch of the military. The court has the authority to reduce your sentence if you can demonstrate that it is excessive. A clemency request can act as protection from forfeitures, it could help you avoid
sex offender registration, reduce a sentence of confinement or prevent a dishonorable discharge. A court martial attorney from our firm can discuss the details of your court martial to determine the likelihood that your request would be successful.
