While US Government and military lawyers are not generally considered part of the consumer community, I have found from my own experiences that they are just as corrupt, self-serving, and unethical than those in the for-profit sector (if not EVEN MORE because they compete daily against each other for limited promotions and choice assignments). 
Take US Army lawyer JAG Captain Matthew S. Fitzgerald (pictured).  His egregious ethical behavior deserves permanent posting to this site given that some day shortly, he will depart the US Army and likely practice law in the private sector.  So consumer public - beware if you see this lawyers name in the future! 
While I was on active duty with the US Army, I was THREATENED by Fitzgerald to do something which was contrary to the US Army legal regulations (which I did not know at the time but Fitzgerald did). [continued below]....
.....  His motive was to boast this as his first accomplishment on his annual performance report of which I later got a copy.  This threat resulted in my losing over $50,000 of my personal funds - all because Fitzgerald was trying to get an edge on his lawyer contemporaries. 
When I asked the current top US Army lawyer (now Lieutenant General Dana Chipman) for assistance, the first thing they did was appoint Fitzgeralds previous boss and his very obvious close friend to investigate.  Since there was no wrongdoing found as a result of this faux investigation (what a surprise!) but specifics were protected by the Privacy Act so I could not see them, I filed the same complaint with Fitzgeralds state bar (Oregon) which is not protected under privacy laws.  Evidence showed that Fitzgerald lied no less than 10 times to the Oregon State Bar when making his official written testimony on the matter.
I pointed this out to Dana Chipmans office as well as several other high ranking US Army lawyers.  It was all COVERED UP by the Armys top lawyer hierarchy. 
Just to add insult to my financial injury, Captain Fitzgerald got promoted to Major.  What else can I say other than, A fish rots from the head down.

Nothing to your complaint

AUTHOR: Joseph - (U.S.A.)

Based on what you wrote, you are deframing an officer with absolutely nothing behind what you wrote.  You are making statements about the character and professionalism of this man, but you did not say one thing about what led to this complaint.

If you are going to make statements about someone, be more specific.  What did he do, what did he make you do, what evidence do you have?  You claim you lost $50,000, but how?  When did this happen, based on you comment about telling the top US Army lawyer, who is now a Lieutenant General, it appears this was sometime in the past.  Your complaint has no facts, no evidence, and is nothing but an attempt at character assassination.  If when you filed your formal complaint this is all you presented, then it is understandable that no wrongdoing was determined.

If you want sympathy, support or anything else, you need to tell your side of the story without inuendo.
