Are You Facing A Similar Legal Situation?

  • Military law enforcement wants your permission to search your home, computer, and personal things?
  • You are the next target of the military's overly aggressive sexual assault policy?
  • You are being investigated and no one has told you why and even your command refuses to give you any details?
  • Your commander orders you to write out a “sworn” statement about what happened even though you want legal advice?
  • You go to an off-post restaurant and see the prosecutors in your case having lunch with your detailed JAG lawyer?
  • You catch your detailed military defense counsel laughing it up and joking around during a recess with the same prosecutor who is trying to end your career and to put you in confinement.
  • An officer was appointed to investigate your legal situation and wants you to come in and write out a statement?
  • Your detailed JAG lawyer keeps telling you to sign off on the Discharge for an Other Than Honorable Discharge even though you want to stay in the military?
  • Military law enforcement told you that agreeing to do a polygraph was the best way of closing the investigation against you?
  • Your chain of command, the prosecutor and your detailed JAG lawyer tell you that taking nonjudicial punishment is your best choice even though you are innocent and want to fight the allegations?
  • You are being told that if you agree to nonjudicial punishment rather than a court-martial, your unit promises not to initiate separation proceedings afterwards — but they don't want to put it in writing?
  • Did you sign a sworn statement against your will or without knowing your rights?
  • Your detailed JAG lawyer is trying to convince you that you will be convicted if you don't sign the guilty plea even though you already told him that you are in fact innocent?

If so, call GAPASIN LAW GROUP so you know your rights and what to do when you are facing these life and career-threatening situations. Fill out the form to the left, click “Submit”, and we will call you shortly for your no-cost telephone consultation.

Remember, a quick plea deal may not be in your best interests, and may wreck your life down the road. Ask yourself: 5 years from now, when you look back on this decision to take the deal and not to fight the charges, is that a decision you're going to regret? The answer is almost always yes — especially when your free military lawyer forces you to take a deal you don't want. Call us. We will discuss all of your options with you, not just a guilty plea.

If you are facing an investigation or if you are pending charges for any of these offenses, whether it is for nonjudicial punishment (e.g., Article 15, Captain's Mast) or a Summary, Special or General Courts-Martial, call GAPASIN LAW GROUP as soon as possible. Be warned, any mistakes you or your free, detailed military lawyer make early in the process will haunt you for the rest of the case. It is critical that you have experienced counsel right away.

What A Recent Client Had To Say . . .

“I was facing serious charges of UCMJ Article 120 for sexual assault and rape. It was an extremely long process that lasted years. I retained Ernesto and he immediately began working my defense and was very upfront about the conviction I could be facing. Ernesto was with me every step of the way and was available 24/7 whenever I needed any help or had any questions. Ernesto's professionalism, analytical skills, cross examination, and overall performance was simply outstanding. I would not trust any other attorney with my case other than Ernesto. During the court martial, Ernesto stood out well above anyone else and proved to be an extremely valuable member of the defense team from his preparation to his execution; he left nothing on the table and gave it all he had. In the end the court found me NOT GUILTY and acquitted of all charges. Ernesto's overall performance was the best anyone could ask for. I would highly recommend Ernesto to anyone who is facing serious charges if you are looking for a serious defense attorney who will do anything he can to protect you.” — 4 Nov 2017, posted on AVVO

Lesson Points:
1. Know when objections will be made in the trial, and know what objections should be expected for each item of evidence.

2. Diligently prepare well-thought out objections long before trial, always including the rule from the MCM along with any on-point cases if it exists.

3. Prepare a separate hard copy print-out of the expected objections and written-out arguments in its own separate section of your trial notebook or folder, always keeping it close and readily available to reference throughout the trial.
