Case Wins

The team at Garrison Military Law has achieved success on behalf of veteran and active duty clients around the country. Here are some of our most recent case wins:

Case:
Retired 0-4 Naval Lieutenant Commander who was a former contracting officer was accused of receiving  inappropriate financial gifts from Glenn Defense Marine Asia (GDMA).  The allegations stemmed that our Client received inappropriate gifts from Mr. Leonard Francis aka Fat Leonard, the leader of GDMA as part of a large ongoing investigation with the Navy. The alleged relationship occurred in Singapore between the years of 2002 and 2005.

Through some legal maneuvering and providing the right statements and information, attorney Garrison Wood was able to have the allegations unsubstantiated.  The investigation into the client’s activity was closed favorably with no punishment whatsoever.

Outcome:
No charges were brought against the client.

Case:
A Marine Staff Sergeant was accused of adultery under Article 134 of the UCMJ and false official statements under Article 107 UCMJ.

Outcome:
The client ultimately faced no punishment in relation to the allegations.

Case:
Navy Petty Officer First Class, a section leader, was accused by one of his sailors of repeated and ongoing sexual harassment in violation of Article 92 of the UCMJ.

Outcome:
The client’s VA benefits were restored and back pay was also awarded.
