Post-Trial Appeals, All Levels of Military Appeals, Review Boards for ALL Military Branches (e.g., Boards of Correction of Military Records)
If you are looking for a lawyer to appeal your case, you need a Military Lawyer experienced in the Post-Trial process of a Military Court Martial. Your lawyer should understand the intricate process of the Military Appellate process. Additionally, however, your appeals lawyer should understand what is involved in the trial process and how the litigation process works. Too many attorneys believe that filing the best appeal is reading cases and submitting a brief. Some of these attorneys who call themselves appellate attorneys lack the litigation experience and lack the time in a courtroom to truly understand how to approach questions of law and properly appeal the important legal issues before an appellate court.
Mr. Gapasin knows what must be done from the beginning of the clemency process all the way through to performing oral arguments before the Military Appellate Judges of the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. Appellate work is a long, arduous process that only a seasoned advocate should tackle. Your lawyer must be willing to put in long hours of investigating and working with you and family members in order to be successful on appeal. Contact Mr. Gapasin to discuss your rights during the appellate process and what to expect. Mr. Gapasin frequently handles a client’s clemency in addition to your appeal depending on the status of your post-trial case and the facts of your case.
