EI INCUMBIT
PROBATIO QUI DICIT.

Proof lies on him who asserts, not on him who denies. The concept is that one is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of what the law says about reasonable doubt, there is an unwritten presumption within the ranks of the military that if you are charged with sexual assault, then you are guilty. The stakes are your life! Your military counsel works for the same military that charged you. Consider that as you choose who represents you in your potentially life altering case.

BOI – Board of Inquiry – RETAINED 6

US ARMY V. MAJ (BOARD OF INQUIRY)

Fort Hood, Texas

This Client hired Mr. Jordan to represent him in a board of inquiry. Boards of inquiry are initiated as an elimination action for officers who have unfavorable paperwork in their files. This officer was given a General Officer Memorandum of Record for violating a military protective order. Mr. Jordan and his team relentlessly dug into the facts behind this case. As it turned out, Mr. Jordan’s client was going through an extremely contentious divorce. While deployed, his Client suffered the worst type of betrayal from his now ex-wife. She had cheated on him with numerous soldiers that were in his previous unit. Upon returning from the deployment, the Client discovered an empty home. What furniture and belongings that were left, were destroyed and vandalized. He began to rebuild his life. His ex-wife continued to hound his every step by making up false allegations, and insisting on a very contentious divorce. The Client’s chain of command did not fully support the Client and decided to take the ex-wife’s side. That is at least the perception of the Client and Mr. Jordan. Apparently that was the board’s perception as well. While there may have been a violation to military protective order, the facts showed that this violation was virtually unavoidable.
