Administrative Separation Boards

For career military men and women, an involuntary discharge can be a more severe punishment than going to the brig. If you are facing involuntary discharge as a disciplinary action, you face the loss of your reputation, pay and future benefits. An involuntary discharge often results in an other-than-honorable characterization and can haunt you forever.

Phillip Stackhouse is a military defense lawyer. In 2006, Mr. Stackhouse retired after 22 years as a Marine Corps officer. As a JAG officer, Mr. Stackhouse had the opportunity to see the worst that can happen to good men and women facing an involuntary discharge because of perceived under-performance or misconduct. It is difficult to watch many good careers go wasted that could have been saved if the service member would have sought aggressive, experienced legal counsel. Mr. Stackhouse began his own law practice with the purpose of protecting the rights of our U.S. service men and women facing the harshest of all punishment actions.
