Military and Veterans Law
Manning & Kass provides military service members, veterans, and their families with an independent, confidential, and aggressive representation. Our Military and Veterans Law Team is led by Eugene P. Ramirez and Erwin A. Nepomuceno. These two attorneys have both been repeatedly named as Super Lawyers, a distinction awarded to no more than five percent of top attorneys who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.
With decades of legal experience in civilian and military courts, our Military and Veterans Law Team possesses the experience required to represent service members and veterans in their claims. Members of our team have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, as Judge Advocate Generals (JAGs), and as law enforcement officers in various agencies throughout the country. These experiences yield an unique understanding of a client’s needs, forming the foundation of confidential and strategic advocacy that is unmatched by other civilian firms.
Every day we are entrusted by U.S. veterans to fight for their benefits. We take pride in representing them through the claims and appeals process before administrative courts such as the Board of Veterans Appeals. Whether a service member is facing a court-martial or a veteran is requesting appropriate compensation from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, we are primed to independently serve America’s service members.
If you are a service member defending an adverse action or a veteran seeking benefits, our attorneys understand the intricacies of military courts, the military code, and the VA. We also have an extensive litigation and trial practice fighting for clients in civilian courts and before administrative agencies.
Our Military and Veterans Law Team assists service members on a wide range of matters including:
• letters of reprimand (LOR’s);
• General Officer Memorandum of Reprimand (GOMOR’s);
• correction of military records filings;
• separation, reduction and show cause rebuttals,
• non-judicial punishment including Article 15’s and Appeals;
• AWOL; and
• Medical/Physical Evaluation Boards (MEB/PEB).
