Welcome to BIlecki & Tipon LLLC

The Premier Law Firm Defending Service Members in the Pacific Rim

You’ve been treated like a criminal from the moment you were accused of a crime. You’ve been told to cooperate, to confess, to take the plea deal offered by the prosecution. You may have been told that your case is hopeless.

You’ve been told that you’re innocent until proven guilty. But from everything you’ve seen and heard those are just words. Your constitutional rights may be alive and well in theory—but they certainly aren’t in practice.

Yet still you remain confident that your case can be fought, and that you can win in court. And there must be attorneys out there that are as passionate about winning your case as you are. There must be a team of legal experts that are gutsy enough—dare we say crazy enough—to take on some of the best military prosecutors in the world—and come out on top.

No Court Martial Case Is Unwinnable. It Simply Takes the Right Team.

If you’re facing serious criminal charges and you don’t know where to turn, then you need to hear our story.

We’re Bilecki & Tipon, a team of U.S. military veterans that felt we could do more good defending fellow service members in courts-martial while outside the system. Our mission is to defend fellow service members against an often abusive and unfair military legal system. Our goal, in every case, is to win. That means taking a plea deal is the ultimate LAST resort, and NEVER the first.

Bilecki & Tipon has been fighting for service members for years, both in State and Military Courts in Hawaii and abroad in Japan, Korea, and across the Pacific Rim. We’ve watched hundreds of accused men and women get burned in court by half-baked attempts at a court martial defense—and it’s high time they had an ally willing to take up their cause.

We could have been like most other law firms, systematically pleading our clients guilty and moving onto the next case.

Instead, we rose to become the preeminent court martial defense team operating in the Pacific Rim today. Every case we take on is tough. But that’s just made us smarter, faster, and more adaptable than any prosecutor the government could throw at us.

Go All In, Or Don't Go In At All

We’ve learned over the years that you either go all-in against the prosecution or you don’t go in at all. You either put up a token defense with a pre-prepared white flag in your briefcase or you fight tooth and nail against the allegations made against you.

If you’re here, then you’ve chosen to fight. We salute that.

Bilecki & Tipon LLLC. has been helping service members defend their lives and freedoms against an abusive military legal system for years. To date, we’ve tried hundreds of cases, both in military court-martials around the world and at state court in Hawaii. We focus on very specific – yet often overlapping – areas of law. Our trial lawyers handle cases involving related issues in court-martial defense, such as sexual assault, BAH & DTS fraud, larceny charges, violent crimes, and more.

We also represent individuals struggling with family law matters, such as divorce, child custody disputes, child support hearings, and state court criminal defense here and Hawaii

Regardless of what you’re fighting in court, you’re going to need allies that can get the job done on the first try. You likely won’t get another chance at a court martial. Make your chance count by retaining Bilecki & Tipon LLLC to fight your case and give you a fighting chance at winning.

Sexual Assault Defense – Bring a Gunslinger to a Gunfight

Given the extraordinary emphasis on sexual assault prevention in the military, can an accused service member still get a fair shot at trial? The answer is yes, but only if you fight back with everything that you have and do whatever possible to level the playing field. Today, sexual assault prosecutions are being ordered at the highest levels of the government and military command, from General officer oversight, to numerous congressional inquiries to the President of the United States demanding that those accused of sexual assault are prosecuted and dishonorably discharged.

The problem is that, today, any allegation of sexual assault, no matter how bogus or how ridiculous, are being charged and the accused is going to trial. It doesn't matter that there is evidence that the alleged victim lied about what happened, that they had a motive to fabricate the allegation or even if the allegations are just plain false. Innocent service members are being prosecuted – and wrongfully convicted – week in and week out in the military. These service members are simply pawns for commanders to show that they are "taking a stand" and "winning the war on sexual assault" regardless of the guilt or innocence of the accused.

It was recently reported by CBS News that Secretary Panetta publically stated: "what is required is that everyone, from the secretary to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs all the way down, every command level, be sensitive to this issue, be aware that they bear the responsibility to take action on these cases. The most important thing we can do is prosecute the offenders."

In 2013, Barack Obama, The President of the United States, addressed the issue of sexual assault in the military. He stated that someone who engages in sexual assault in the military is betraying the uniform. He stated: "I have no tolerance for this... I have communicated this to the Secretary of Defense. We're gonna communicate this again to folks up and down the chain in areas of authority. And I expect consequences." "If we find out somebody's engaging in this stuff, they've got to be held accountable: prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged, period."

The Commander in Chief directed that any "engaging in this stuff" which in most of the cases involves alcohol-facilitated sexual intercourse, be court-martialed, fired and dishonorably discharged. It begs the question whether a service member is really going to get a fair shot at trial, especially when the only person typically defending an accused service member is a free military lawyer who also wears a military uniform?

Bilecki & Tipon, LLLC have seen cases where the alleged victim has recanted and the case still went to trial. Where the alleged victim has been caught perjuring himself or herself and the case still went to trial. Where the alleged victim committed a crime and the accused did nothing wrong, and the case still went to trial. Where the accused has passed multiple polygraphs and the case still went to trial.

Even worse, in each of these cases, the government stacks the deck to win at all costs. The government often uses underhanded law enforcement tactics to obtain coerced confessions, fail to test potentially exculpatory forensic evidence, routinely deny defense experts and witnesses, and bring 3 and 4 experienced lawyers to prosecute the case while an accused service member is only assigned one. If you want a fair shot at trial, you need to fight back, and you can't simply bring a knife to a gunfight. You need a gunslinger.
