Military Defense Case Results

  • Positive urinalysis

    Record Cleared

    A Navy SEAL first class petty officer was charged with a positive urinalysis. When we appeared before a separation board, the board recommended separation, although the discharge characterization was a General under Honorable conditions. After the board, we filed a petition for review before the Board of Corrections. After nearly 2 1/2 years of ongoing legal maneuvering, the Board of Corrections found in our favor and REVERSED the finding of misconduct. The Navy thereafter gave the sailor CREDIT FOR PAY PURPOSES for all time since he had been discharged and RETAINED him with full retirement pay and benefits, as well as CLEARED HIS RECORD of any reference to the alleged drug usage.

Without even needing a board hearing, we were able to convince her command that the positive urinalysis was unreliable, that the LOR and UIF should be rescinded, and that separation action processing should cease immediately.
