Veterans Law: Discharge Upgrades
Appealing an Unfavorable Discharge Status in Southern California
One of the primary goals during military service is to secure a favorable discharge status, preferably an honorable discharge. The status of discharge that you receive can have a tremendous effect on your life after military service, affecting things such as your right to claim veteran disability benefits. If you have received an other than honorable discharge or a general discharge and believe that you should have been given a more favorable recognition, you may be able to secure justice by appealing the decision.
An attorney from our firm can meet with you to review your case and determine whether you have a good chance of success in challenging your current discharge status, such as by seeking to remove a letter of reprimand or altering the narrative which appears in your discharge papers. If you have grounds for an appeal, we can assist you in preparing the necessary evidence and testimony to provide to the Board for Correction of Military Records, which reviews alleged injustices and errors for all branches of the Armed Forces and may be able to change your discharge status. You should be subjected to the negative repercussions of an unfavorable discharge which you did not deserve.
