Minor Mistake Made
Navy Officer Client made a minor mistake during a very difficult time in her life. The Navy forced her to show cause for retention through notification procedures. After a hard-fought battle, her career was saved and she was retained.
Navy Client shared a vape with a stranger the weekend before checking into his command. Steph’s persuasive presentation of the response to the ADSEP Notification resulted in Client continuing his Navy career.
Mental Health Discharge
Navy Client was going to be separated for simply seeking mental health treatment. The ship wasn’t giving him the treatment he deserved, so he went off-ship for treatment. The ship retaliated and began processing him for a mental health discharge. Steph pulled out all the stops with the response, and the CO withdrew the ADSEP and returned the Sailor to the ship.
Navy Client was the victim of severe Military Sexual Trauma, and several commands subsequently mistreated her. She was in the process of being medically retired for MST-related PTSD and used cannabis to alleviate her suicidal intentions. Her command attempted to override the medical board and separate her with a general discharge characterization. One day after Steph’s legally sound, aggressive response to the ADSEP notification, the command withdrew the notification and allowed her to retire.
Leaving The Scene of an Accident & Lying
Steph represented a USMC Gunnery Sergeant who received NJP for leaving the scene of an accident and lying about his location. Steph presented an extraordinarily compelling case for him to receive a 6105 instead of an NJP. The CO agreed and dismissed the nonjudicial punishment action.
Client tested positive for THC. Abby’s thorough investigation, solid criticism of the command investigation failures, and compelling legal presentation resulted in the Client being found to have committed no misconduct. Client stayed in the Navy.
