Each branch of the U.S. military maintains its own Office of the Inspector General (OIG). These offices are tasked with the duty to investigate high-ranking officials and senior officers when they are accused of fraud, waste, abuse or individual misconduct. Any service member who has reason to believe he or she may be investigated by the IG, or who is already under such investigation, must proceed with caution.
Obtaining skilled and experienced legal counsel should be the first step for anyone subject to an IG investigation. The Cody Law Firm has deep experience handling these matters on behalf of officers and officials in all branches of the U.S. military. The firm's goal is to protect our clients' service records and prevent unfounded accusations or improper investigations from derailing their careers.
Based in New Jersey, The Cody Law Firm handles inspector general investigations for service members at the New Jersey National Guard Base, the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst and the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center Cape May and nationwide. If you are overseas, the firm can file the necessary paperwork to represent you in your absence. Call 609-561-1015 to speak to a lawyer.

IG investigations can stunt and even end a service member's career, even if ultimately there was no basis for the investigation. The motivations of an investigator are sometimes difficult to understand, and he or she may be overzealous or poorly trained, leading to an improperly conducted investigation. In fact, IG investigators are known for their frequent failure to abide by the applicable federal laws and military regulations.
The experienced national command investigations lawyers at The Cody Law Firm help subjects of investigations understand their rights and then act quickly to protect them. Our firm, skilled in all facets of military justice, will vigorously defend your career, your reputation and your future when threatened by an IG investigation, whether you are in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines or Coast Guard.
