Service members often have military-related legal needs not experienced by members of the civilian population. When navigating the legal system, service members may benefit from the advice and representation of a lawyer with experience helping service members and handling military issues.
Panama City attorney Zachary A. Vandyke has helped many people dealing with these issues. Mr. Vandyke is a combat veteran and a former active member of the U.S. Army JAG Corps. He has over 10 years of legal experience and 20 years of military experience. He knows the ins and outs of military customs and regulations, and he has helped many service members with their service-related needs and questions.
Many veterans are eligible for disability benefits from the Veterans Benefits Administration, and combat veterans may be eligible for benefits from Combat Injury Pay and Traumatic Service Member's Group Life Insurance. Getting these benefits can sometimes prove to be a daunting task, however. Our firm is committed to educating vets about the benefits they may be eligible for and assisting vets with completing paperwork to apply for the benefits.
Sometimes service members leave the service with a punitive discharge. The Army Court of Criminal Appeals automatically reviews any punitive discharges from the U.S. Army, and service members may also ask for an adjustment. A punitive discharge could have a negative impact on the future of a service member who receives it. Zachary A. Vandyke zealously and honorably advocates for clients facing punitive discharges.
