Helping Clients Improve Their Service Records

If you have been discharged from military service, a wide range of benefits and other privileges may be dependent on the exact details of your discharge records. Depending on your specific goals, it may be beneficial for you to pursue a discharge upgrade with your service branch.

At the law firm of Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, Georgia, we regularly help clients pursue discharge upgrades. Contact us today for a free phone consultation with a knowledgeable military law attorney.

Providing Skilled Guidance Backed by Experience

Whether you are looking to change the characterization of your discharge, the grounds for the discharge or your reenlistment code, there are several reasons why it is important to retain an experienced military law attorney to help you pursue your discharge upgrade.

  • Choosing the appropriate board is a key step in the discharge upgrade process. Each service branch has a Discharge Review Board and Board for Correction of Military Records. You need a lawyer who knows which board is appropriate to hear your case.
  • Obtaining military records can be a challenge for anyone who has not done it before and is not familiar with this complex and sometimes frustrating process.
  • Familiarity with statutes of limitations is necessary to make sure your claim is filed on time or that a waiver is sought on the appropriate grounds.

We are highly familiar with all aspects of the military discharge upgrade process in all service branches. We have helped many clients achieve their goals through this process. You can rely on us to take the right steps at the right time on your behalf.

Advising You Based on Your Specific Goals

People seek discharge upgrades for different reasons. Some of our clients want to be eligible for education or VA benefits. Some want to reenlist but have reenlistment eligibility (RE) codes that prohibit them from active duty. Some feel like they were railroaded into administrative discharge as they got close to eligibility for length of service retirement.

We will listen to your reasons for seeking a discharge upgrade, review your records and propose a course of action that is appropriate for your specific circumstances and goals. Contact us to discuss how we can help you pursue a discharge upgrade.
