As a member of the Armed Forces you may be unfortunate enough to be involved in Court Martial proceedings. During these hearings the Court can hear allegations regarding offences that are classed as “criminal conduct”, under s.42 Armed Forces Act 2006.
- Assault – ABH and GBH
In addition, the Court has the jurisdiction to hear about Service/Disciplinary offences, these include:
- Contravention of Standing Orders
- Negligent performance of duty
- Conduct offence, and
- Offences regarding ships and flying of Aircraft.
Both Criminal and Service offences could lead to a period of Service Detention, dismissal from the Service and/or imprisonment. The full range of sentences available to the Court are found in Armed Forces Act 2006. A conviction at Court-Martial may not only affect your career in the Service but also has the possibility of impacting upon Forces Pension entitlements.

Thank you so much for today. You did an amazing job and I couldn’t have asked for anyone better to represent me! I’m so happy that it went that way and that I’ve been granted the non molestation order. I can now relax a little bit and actually live my life without having the fear of my ex partner in the back of my mind. Thank you so much once again, I’ll always be grateful for you and your team at Sills & Betteridge. You all did an excellent job and handled my situation perfectly.
Thank you for the professional way that my divorce was handled; a very painful time which was eased by the ‘fuss-free’ approach from yourself and Leanne. Will certainly recommend.
I would personally not use any other solicitor – Andrew Durkan has been very professional and understanding in the completion of my will. Highly Recommended.
I am very happy. Thank you for all your help. I hope to be alright for the future now. Kind regards
I wanted to email to highlight how helpful and efficient Matthew Daurge has been during the purchase and sale of our property. This is this first time Mathew has acted on our behalf and he really has made the process run very smoothly and quickly. Because of this we will definitely be asking him to act on our behalf with our future projects.
Mathew presents as being extremely efficient and his communication skills have been excellent. He has always done what he has said he is going to do without us having to keep following this up. Mathew was always very good at keeping us updated and is very approachable. I have work with many solicitors both on a professional level and personal and I am yet to come across a solicitor that has been as helpful as Mathew.
Mathew is a credit to your company. So I just wanted to highlight his good practice and hope you will pass on this positive feedback as it is much deserved.
We remain most grateful for all your help and support in bringing this matter to a satisfactory conclusion. No one could have done more, and we think the outcome is not only a credit to your skills in this area of law, but also to the care and attention that you have taken on our behalf
