Court-Martial Appeals Attorney
Military Lawyer for Courts-Martial Appeals
Are you facing a court-martial? Are you searching for a military attorney
for your court-martial appeal? Just as in a criminal case in a state or
federal civilian court,
military cases that receive a court-martial are subject to the right of appeal. If you
are dissatisfied with the ruling in your case, you can bring the ruling
up for review. The most serious cases are even given an automatic appeal,
including sentences of the death penalty, a year's confinement or
a dishonorable discharge.
The convening authority responsible for the court-martial is the first
person who will hear your appeal. If this request is denied, your case
will go to the Court of Criminal Appeals for your branch of the military,
followed by the United States Court of Appeals of the Armed Forces (CAAF)

Military Lawyer for Court-Martial Appeals
The purpose of an appeal is not to repeat the
general court-martial or
special court-martial, but to review the evidence and the manner in which your trial was conducted.
Your attorney will attempt to prove that your sentence is inappropriate,
that there was insufficient evidence in the case or that the presiding
official made mistakes that prejudiced the outcome against you. Any problems
with the sentence can be remedied and you may be able to have an unjust
verdict reduced. Need a lawyer for a courts-martial appeal?
