An Army Staff Sergeant stationed at Camp Casey, Korea, faced charges related to failing to comply with Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. This case presented complex issues involving conflicting PCS orders, including discrepancies in the date and location of the new assignment and confusion over the approval of extension orders. Recognizing the intricacies of the case, court martial lawyer Tim Bilecki was retained to represent the soldier.

Bilecki’s strategic approach involved early and assertive advocacy with the government trial counsel. His efforts were focused on keeping the proceedings at an administrative level, avoiding the escalation to a Special or General Court Martial. Through careful negotiation and legal maneuvering, Bilecki effectively communicated the challenges and discrepancies involved in the PCS orders to the government’s side.  

Due to the proactive legal representation and negotiation skills demonstrated, the charges against the Soldier were never formally preferred, effectively resolving the matter at the administrative level without further escalation to a court martial.
