Were you discharged or dismissed from your branch of service? If so, you may be able to receive an upgrade to your discharge by working with an attorney from the firm of Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law. Our dedicated military defense lawyer, Attorney Joseph Jordan, will work actively to help you obtain a favorable outcome for your discharge concern. Under Title 10 of the United States Code, 211553, the Secretary of Service authorizes a board review to potentially change a dismissal or discharge from service. Any person who has been discharged or their immediate family members, heirs or attorney can file to charge the discharge. If you are seeking a discharge, you need to contact Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law right away.

In applying to change an upgrade, you must first contact Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law. We will then collect necessary documents and assist you in filing for a DD Form 293. This form, also known as an Application for the Review of Discharge can be obtained online, via phone or by written correspondence. All information on this form must be completed correctly and legibly and records and statements relevant to the original dismissal should be attached as well. An upgrade can be granted to anyone who is eligible by evidence that the dismissal or discharge happened improperly or if you can provide evidence from chain of command, chaplain or commanders that can provide burden of proof. The information obtained will be approved or denied by a board of personnel specific to the branch. Army, Coast Guard and Air Force have separate boards for review than the Navy and Marine Corp.


If you are seeking an upgrade for yourself or a family member, it is recommended that you immediately contact Joseph L. Jordan, Attorney at Law.
