Mr. Bielicki's career as a Marine officer includes tours in several staff judge advocate offices and as a defense counsel at several major Marine installations. While serving as a defense counsel at Camp Pendleton, a local trial counsel nicknamed him Dr. Evil because of his fearlessness in approaching his client's commands and his penchant for driving the prosecutors mad with his zealous representations. Unlike too many career judge advocates, Mr. Bielicki never tried to further his personal objectives by making things easy for convening authorities. Mr. Bielicki has defended hundreds of Marines in judicial and administrative proceedings.
Mr. Bielicki has also served in several non-attorney billets which allow him to understand the needs of his clients and gives him insight into effectively negotiating with convening authorities. These billets include serving as a platoon leader in an infantry company, as a G-3 (operations) action officer, and as a special staff officer to both the Deputy Commander in Chief, Central Command, and the Commanding General, Mobilization Command. Mr. Bielicki is currently a reserve Major and his completing Command and Staff college.
In private practice, Mr. Bielicki has worked for an international law firm, representing clients in complex commercial disputes. His cases included representing an investment bank involved in an alleged international tax shelter, representing a large Japanese industrial corporation in a $1.4 billon dispute with an Australian investment company – via their American subsidiaries, representing the board of directors of a large utility in derivative shareholder suit, and representing major insurance companies in multi-million dollar coverage disputes and billion plus dollar contractual and tax disputes. Mr. Bielicki has appeared in state and federal courts all over the United States.
Currently, Mr. Bielicki has a private law practice focusing on military criminal and administrative matters. Additionally, Mr. Bielicki is a part-time Assistant District Attorney in central New York. This prosecutorial experience gives Mr. Bielicki a unique perspective regarding the issues that make a case triable on both sides of the aisle. This allows Mr. Bielicki to better advise his clients about when they should contest a case at court-martial, and when they are better of seeking a plea agreement – including what the terms of a fair agreement should be.
Mr. Bielicki is a tough, smart attorney who works hard to obtain the best possible outcome for his clients. He understands what motivates General officers and is often able to reshape those motivations - to the benefit of his clients.
