Soldiers may be administratively separated for a broad spectrum of reasons, ranging from medical conditions to alleged misconduct.  It is important to speak with a TDS Judge Advocate if you are pending separation from the National Guard.  Your Judge Advocate can protect your procedural rights and assist you through all phases of the separation process, including representation at board proceedings.  If you are facing administrative separation, you will need to contemplate the presentation of your evidence, witness identification, legal arguments, and other necessary board pre-requisites as soon as possible.  A TDS attorney will be able to guide you through this process.
