Appeal of Actions Under the UCMJ

Military Lawyer Handling Appeals Of Convictions

If you have been convicted of an offense in a military court, it can have a devastating impact on your career and your future. While certain courts-martial are automatically appealed, you have the right to appeal any adverse ruling under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The process involved with appealing a ruling is very complex, and the assistance of an experienced military defense lawyer can be invaluable.

At The Law Office of Philip D. Cave, I represent United States service members worldwide in all types of UCMJ violations. I am prepared to represent you in the appeal of any conviction or adverse disciplinary ruling. I have dedicated my entire legal career to military defense and security clearance law. You can rely on me to do everything in my power to see that your rights, your privileges and your career remain fully intact. Mounting A Successful Appeal

I have experience handling appeals before the Court of Criminal Appeals as well as the Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. I understand the unique procedures involved with pursuing an appeal, and I know how to present your case in a way that is compelling to the court. I will conduct a thorough review of your court-martial and develop the most effective approach to getting your conviction overturned.

In order for an appeal to be successful, it must be shown that some error in the proceeding negatively impacted the outcome of the court-martial. Examples of errors that can create grounds for an appeal are as follows:

  • Errors in the gathering of evidence
  • Procedural violations
  • Abuse of authority
  • Failures in the application of the UCMJ
  • Errors of fact
