    MJA Saved My Military Career

    “I have served in the Army Honorably for 12 years, when I was wrapped up in case much bigger than me. I was facing an allegation against me that wasn’t true, my family and I felt backed into a wall. We leaned heavily on our faith to point us in the right direction, beginning to search for attorney’s when a profile for Gerry Healy popped up. We prayed about it and felt compelled to inquire about his partnership. When he responded swiftly we knew he cared and was eager to represent us. Upon talking to him, we prayed some more and instantly felt a need to hire him, knowing his experience in military and civilian law furthermore assured us.

    Once we hired him we knew we were in good hands. I was able to go to work confidently and still be the quality Soldier and Non-Commissioned Officer I know I am. Gerry worked tirelessly and diligently to pursue the truth, and obtain proof. Based on his experience, he was able to see through any and all falsehoods provided by all involved in the case. He’s an aggressive, committed, and fearless attorney, when called he responds and will get in the court room any day. Throughout all the proceedings I was well informed of what was going on, and was accurately given guidance on any action needed to be taken whether it be from me or them. Not only did he serve us well but he also brought in an excellent partner from his firm by the name of Josh Hill.

    Josh added a sense of unmatched passion that spearheaded this case. Like Gerry, Josh was able to see through any falsehood presented to him. He was always blunt in his efforts to expose the truth – a clear cut and dry attorney that is completely transparent. With every conversation we had with Josh we knew that we could trust him in the same manner we trusted Gerry. Every time I spoke with Josh, I felt a sense of security in these matters that are unparalleled. Josh exhausted all his efforts to gather the facts and maintain the integrity of all involved, at no time did he expect anything less. A true attorney of good moral character, standards, and discipline.

    Both of these outstanding attorneys worked tirelessly with my TDS counsel. They all saved not only my career but my entire way of life. If I had to do it all again, I’d definitely be hiring them again for any situation. God truly gave us the right three men for the job, and we cannot thank them enough.” – SSG, USA


    The Calm in the Storm

    “My husband found himself wrapped up in a terrible situation at work being falsely accused of a serious crime that threatened the career he has spent over a decade building as well as his future as we knew it. Facing a Court Martial for something he did not do, we were backed into a corner. Then we came across Gerry’s profile, I called and we instantly felt like we were in good hands. He quickly and professionally answered all of our questions and assured us we would be able to get through this. Throughout the entire process he was in aggressive pursuit of the truth and didn’t stop until it was heard. He was always willing to discuss matters with us and didn’t let any obstacle get in his way. He has such a understanding of military law and his knowledge is unparalleled. He directed us throughout the whole process and has a way of gathering information that leads to the ultimate goal.

    I am so glad that we found Gerry and recommend him to anyone who needs help. Not only did he find the truth which cleared my husbands name but he saved his career and way of life. He is worth every penny and even worked with us as the legal battle morphed and changed. He made a trip to be present with my husband during a reading that he did not have to be there for because it made my husband more comfortable to have his representation. He truly cares about his clients and will not let you down. Thank you again Gerry, from the bottom of our hearts we are so happy we found you. God Bless.” – Courtney


    Worth Every Cent if You Need a Military Defense Attorney!

    “I had the unfortunate experience to become involved in an investigation on a Marine Corps Officer while I was TAD with the Marine Corps. I immediately began looking for a civilian attorney to help with the process. I came across the MJA website and put in a request for a consult. Gerry called that night and spent over an hour on the phone with me discussing the case until that point.After refusing NJP, the CO sent it for an administrative separation for my misconduct, but thanks to Gerry’s advice, I didn’t have substantiated charges as I had not gone to NJP where I would have no rights, It was not referred to court martial.I received the notice right as I was informed that I was on 48 hours notice to deploy in response to the COVID response. Gerry was able to get an extension for the response, and then was able to contact the witness I provided. His expertly written brief was worth everything I had paid for and was written so much better then I could have ever hoped to have written myself. Gerry was able to point out the flaws with the command’s lack of investigation, was able to cite case law to support why the charges were not supported and forced the command to look at my entire career. It was submitted and the day that Gerry followed up with the Command JAG, I was notified that the CO was dropping the charge for dereliction of duty and would issue a NPLOC for the Conduct Unbecoming Charge and a report of no misconduct was routed to PERS.

    I cannot thank Gerry enough for the work he put into my response and saving my career! I would recommend him to anyone and vouch that he is worth every penny to save your career.” – LCDR, USN


    Fantastic and Effective Attorney

    “I have unfortunately had a wealth of experience with attorneys of various disciplines over a year and half period of legal battles including military, criminal, civil, and family law. Of the six attorneys I have had to retain in that timeframe, and the many others I have consulted with, Josh Hill has been hands down the easiest to work with.

    Many attorneys will be difficult to reach or will try to nickel and dime you for every email or phone call. Josh is reliably easy to get in touch with, keeps you well informed, and has been nothing but generous and fair with his time and fees. The man has sound instinct and judgement, and fantastic planning and communication skills. He shifts gears quickly: we never had to go to bat for the initial reason I retained him – but the legal battlescape is capricious, and I later found myself on the hook for a matter that was related but not on the contract I signed. He was well within his rights to charge me new fees and write new contracts, but he didn’t pull that move. He stuck with me, applied my initial fees to the new task, and put a lot of work into my matter over a year and a half after I had first hired him for a different reason.

    He constructed a 160-some page package for a two-star general on the ludicrous time constraint of about one week. His work directly resulted in the outcome that I desired. But here is the thing – I also listened to what he told me to do. If you do the same, you can have a good result. This is an effective and trustworthy attorney. What’s more, he is the only lawyer who I think legitimately cared about my outcome. If you are seeking a military law attorney, this is the one you should hire.”  – SSgt, USMC


    Best Defense Lawyer, Bar None!

    “About a year ago I was served with a Letter of Reprimand for a false Article 120b accusation of sexual assault. I was served with discharge paperwork and knew that I was going to need someone good to represent me at my administrative discharge board hearing. After some research online I came across Gerald’s site and it seemed as though it was exactly what I needed.  When I first contacted Gerald he wasted no time to provide me with excellent advice. He was extremely professional and answered every question I had. After our consultation I made the best decision in my life and hired Gerald to defend me in my Article 120b board hearing.

    His knowledge of the judicial system and his skills are untouchable. He is a fierce defense lawyer that will not disappoint you when it matters most. His skills saved my career and my life. He is very straight forward, honest and trustworthy. He is bold and upfront with you and he will tell you exactly where you stand and what direction you should go. He has tenacity coupled with a degree of benevolence but never loses site of the end goal, which is to protect, defend and have the best outcome for his client.

    I would never hesitate to recommend Gerald Healy to anyone out there going through some legal issues. You will not regret the decision and it may be your life he saves next. Gerald, my family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts!” – Andy


    Outstanding Legal Representation.

    “SPC, US Army attended administrative separation board. Looking at a OTH discharged for sexual assault. Gerald Healy and Josh Hill represented me. They supported me through the whole process. Not once did I have to question or even think about the worst outcome! They made it known that no matter what happened it would be the best outcome for me. I was found not guilty and I retained in service! Not only did they fix the situation they also saved my career and now I continue to be the soldier I am and serve my country honorably! I would highly recommend Mr. Healy and Mr. Hill to anyone in regard of any situation that puts their career at risk no matter the situation! Don’t think about if you should or shouldn’t receive representation from them I promise you they are the most professional attorneys anyone could ever hire!” – SPC, U.S. Army


    Great Lawyer!

    Mr. Hill was a great attorney; he exceeded all expectations. He put full effort into each step of my case. He went over various scenarios and prepared me for every outcome. Throughout the entire case, Mr. Hill kept me encouraged and did everything in his power to win my case. My case lasted a year, starting in June of 2017 and ending in June of 2018, but I did not hire Mr. Hill until April of 2018. He had only 2 and a half months to prepare for my case against attorneys whom had the full 12 months to prepare and even with the odds against us, Mr. Hill put full effort in and won my case! I highly recommend him to any person searching for an attorney, especially the younger defendants because he connects with you and understands that you have your full life ahead of you and is willing to do whatever it takes to get you your freedom or the best offer.” – PFC, U.S. Army


    Worth Every Penny.

    Gerry Healy is an outstanding attorney. In the courtroom he is confident, knowledgeable, and aggressive. I remember reading some reviews when I had first consulted with Gerry, and one comment stuck in my mind. It referred to him as an ‘articulate pit bull in the courtroom.’ That description of Gerry is spot on. He is tough, sharp and always a step ahead of everyone else. He made sure that I received a fair trial and really kept the prosecution in check. I would not want my fate in anyone else’s hands. Thank you again Gerry.” – Alan


    Phenomenal Lawyer!

    “I got caught up in a situation that escalated almost beyond my control. I seeked out legal assistance and found Joshua Hill online. He is a great lawyer and helped me stay in the Marine Corps. I highly recommend him as an attorney and if I know people who need an attorney Joshua Hill would be the first I tell them to contact. Overall great person and attorney that is more than willing to help and is super understanding.” – LCpl, USMC


    I was Very Lucky to Come Across Joshua Hill!

    With a possibility of not being able to enlist active duty do to a false urinalysis and a subpar recruiter, I had to search for a lawyer for immediate help. After coming across Hill’s contact information I called without hesitation and with very little effort required of myself considering the situation, this lawyer resolved my problem allowing me to return to MEPS. He did his job with care almost like he himself was in my shoes with my awful situation. I would strongly recommend him to anyone!” – Wesley


    Mr. Healy Saved My Career.

    Mr. Healy’s expert legal knowledge in military law and tenacity in the court room directly resulted in my 12-year Army career being saved after making just one mistake that jeopardized it all. I have extensive medical issues that I knew I was going to need my VA benefits to support my family after my MEB. The government sent me to a Special Court -artial after one bad decision, they would not even offer a plea deal that didn’t include a Bad Conduct Discharge and a minimum 9-months confinement. I waited for 10 months of expecting the worst for myself and my family, almost certainly facing a BCD and confinement. Mr. Healy, after only the first day of a three-day Court Martial, convinced the judge to make his decision. I left the courtroom that day with only a General Letter of Reprimand. I can now finish my MEB and retire honorably.” – Tony


    Fierce. Articulate. Bold. Intelligent.

    “Gerry is brilliant. I will never be able to thank him enough for seeking justice for my son. An earlier review describes Gerry as an ‘articulate pitbull’ in the courtroom and that is exactly what he is. He is fierce and does not back down; he is a fighter for justice. Gerry was very attentive to us during our 15-month process; he was sincere, understanding, patient, and he explained the process and what to expect every step of the way. I will be forever grateful for his diligence in our case.” – Michelle


    Fearless, aggressive and confident defense lawyer.

    “General Court-Martial 2015 for an alleged kiss with two charges and two specifications each charges. Attorney Gerald Healy is by far one of the most experienced, fearless, and confident defense lawyer I have ever known. He fought for me in my very complicated case in the Marine Corps. In his insurmountable knowledge and years of experienced in Military Laws and Regulations, he was successful in defending my case and getting all the charges fully acquitted.

    Attorney Gerald Healy is the guy who never gives up. He kept me updated on my case. He is a very approachable lawyer and he will address all your concerns as much as he can. As a matter of fact, though his duty and responsibilities to me has been long done, he was still helping me address my concern in providing certain documents I have been looking for. I owe him a lot. He saved my life.

    I would not hesitate to recommend Attorney Gerald Healy to anybody when they need a lawyer. He is the kind of guy you want to get when you need a lawyer to fight your battle against the world. He is worth every single penny that you would pay for a lawyer.” – Cpl, USMC


    He is an articulate pitbull in the courtroom.

    “I know Mr Healy quite well. He represented me in a case where the odds were stacked against me. This was the most difficult time of my life considering some other circumstances that were added on. However, he fought for me tooth and nail even though his caseload was very high at the time. It seemed he devoted every ounce of effort to find me justice and in the end, because of his efforts, I was fully acquitted of several charges.

    I will never forget that feeling for as long as I live. Upon the announcement of the verdict I nearly collapsed. My career, my life, my future was completely in his hands and he took it as seriously as I did. He is an articulate pitbull in the courtroom. I highly recommend his services if you expect to have any chance of seeing the justice you truly deserve.” – Shannon S., USMC


    An Excellent Lawyer!

    “Gerald Healy represented my son in a very serious court martial case. He walked with us each step of the way from the beginning to the end. He put in numerous hours and left no stone overturned when working on my son’s case. During the court martial hearing it was evident that he is a skilled lawyer and works hard for the families he represents. I highly recommend Mr. Healy if you are ever in need of a great lawyer. It was especially helpful that Mr. Healy has extensive experience with military court proceedings both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney. That was evident in our son’s full acquittal.” – Anonymous


    The best representation I could have dreamed of for my daughter.

    “I am very thankful to have found Josh [Hill] to represent my daughter who was facing an administrative separation from the Marine Corps. She had done nothing to deserve this and tried to navigate the system on her own to fight it at first. By the time I was aware of her situation, some time had passed and quick action was necessary. I was immediately impressed with Josh’s thorough, reassuring and competent manner during our initial phone call. After speaking to four other attorneys, and much research online, Josh stood out significantly. It was a trying time, as I had no prior knowledge of how the military legal system worked and had never had to hire an attorney before. Josh was proactive, thorough, and very conscience in his representation of my daughter. He did an excellent job of explaining the process, outlining options and presenting us with his recommendations. His communication was very timely and we felt that he was easily accessible. Emails, texts and phone calls were promptly acknowledged and returned when necessary. My daughter received a favorable outcome that I know would had not of happened without Josh’s outstanding representation. For that I will be eternally grateful.” – Meredith


    Best Experience-Best Outcome-Best Service.

    “My son is serving currently serving in the military. The military wanted to admin. Separate him for something so minor it was ridiculous and unfair. When you are going against the powers to be in a military, the person serving in the military really has no say in their outcome.  The attorney’s on base were compassionate and told my son this is not right and how unfair it, and they explained some legal rights but there is nothing they could really do and my son did not have a voice in this matter or any attorney on base that could help him.

    My son found Attorney Joshua Hill through a friend in the military who had a great outcome. We hired Joshua Hill immediately. He spoke to us with such calm and confidence, instantly putting our fears to rest. During this entire situation, he communicated constantly. Whenever we had a question or concern he was quick to respond.  He handled this situation so well and knew the right thing to say to my son’s commander for a good result, along with well-written letters he sent to the CO. Within a short couple weeks, it went from my son getting discharged to being able to stay in and it dropped, thanks to Joshua Hill.

    The relief we felt when we received that phone call from Joshua Hill was something I cannot even describe. If you want someone who will communicate with you and for you, fight for you, and extremely professional, hire Joshua Hill. You will NOT be disappointed!” – Lori


    Recommending, advising and informing!

    Mr. Joshua Hill did a wonderful job working with us in a legal suit. End state, a victorious outcome, and this was directly related to the strong counsel we received. He consistently put our interests at the forefront, advising what was the best approach, and explaining in detail why that approach would resonate best in the courtroom. If you are looking for an attorney who will listen to your concerns and feel that he is personally and professionally invested in results, Joshua Hill is your attorney. I was astonished by the level of knowledge Mr. Hill possesses while proving he is strategic and a true courtroom tactician. He is confident and can convey the right message. It was a great partnership and I highly recommend him for legal counsel.” – Kerri


    Experienced, responsive, and knowledgeable.

    “Those are the things you get when you hire Mr. Healy.  Immediately upon my retaining Mr. Healy he was there, accessible, through phone and text, explaining to me all the answers of the questions I had about the intimidating arena I had just been forced into. He replied to all of my concerns thoroughly and specifically, and gave me the best options and choices I had at my disposal. He was there to make sure I took my time to make informed and thought out decisions, while ensuring I knew the extent of my rights, even though those at my command were trying to force me into compromising situations.

    It was because of his knowledge with things that you hope to never have to become familiar with, that I EAS’d with an honorable discharge, only after he ended up negotiating a superb deal. If you’re dealing with allegations that threaten you’re goals in life and the military, big or small, hire Gerry. Your discharge, rank, reputation, security clearance, are all worth infinitely more in this world than what he charges.” – Tyler


    Honest and Amazing Attorney.

    “Josh Hill is an amazing attorney!!! 3 years ago I needed VA help with a hip problem and was told I could not get any medical help because of my military discharge from the United States Navy 33 year’s ago. I called Mr.Hill and talking with him, he was very respectful, professional and most of all honest. Whenever I had a question, Mr. Hill was very accurate and informative during the whole process. Mr.Hill answered all my phone calls and followed up with all my concerns. After 3 years working with Josh he was able to get my OTH (other than honorable) discharge upgraded to a Full Honorable discharge. I highly recommend Josh Hill to anyone that needs help, and look forward to working with Mr. Hill in the future. Thank You Every Much Josh!!!” – Rodney
