We received news today of a withdrawal of show cause proceedings and dismissal of administrative separation proceedings (prior to trial) for an Air Force Captain at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. We were asked to come in and present a defense for the Captain serving in an operationally sensitive unit who had a complex case profile. We worked this case hiring experts, consultants, and interviewing and vetting witnesses in (at least) 6 different time zones (UTC-7 (Pacific) UTC-6 (Central Standard) UTC (Zulu) (British Summer Time UK), UTC+3 (Turkey) and UTC+1 (Germany) – all during COVID-19 restrictions and lockdown (on and off base).
All told, administrative separation proceedings that were commenced in August of 2019 were wrapped up within 4 weeks of our undertaking of the representation. This is how we roll. Boots on the ground! Anytime, anywhere!
One of the many facets of services provided by Lex Fori PLLC and Carson J. Tucker includes representation of members of the United States Military in criminal and administrative separation proceedings. After serving 26 years in the United States military, 14 years enlisted and an additional 12 years as a Judge Advocate General in the United States Army and Michigan National Guard, a fair part of Mr. Tucker’s practice is focused on continuing to defend our nation’s veterans and service members wherever they may need assistance.
After 26 years of reserve and active duty military service, Mr. Tucker retired as a Major in the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps of the United States Army. He is a 2012 Graduate of the Judge Advocate Officer Advanced Course, at The Judge Advocate Legal Center and School, Charlottesville, Virginia.
