After a military member has been convicted in a court-martial trial, they have a post-trial opportunity to submit a request for clemency to the Convening Authority. That Convening Authority is then tasked with fully agreeing and approving a court-martial decision, making a different decision, or granting some form of relief. However, a conviction may only remain the same, or be reduced in some way. It may never be made worse.
A military member is entitled to retain legal representation in all court matters, including clemency applications and appeals. Due to the nature of these proceedings and their differences from state court matters, it is highly advisable to seek out an experienced attorney well-versed in military law. That is where PGD Law PLLC excels.
