I'm married and have two children. When I was charged with the illegal transportation of weapons. My life all but collapsed around me. My wife and I were terribly stressed and our morale was destroyed. I went to see Major Faraj as I was considering hiring a famous California lawyer to represent me. I was innocent but I was very afraid because the prosecutors gave deals to two senior Marines for their testimony against me. Needless to say, Major Faraj destroyed their stories and their credibility. He showed them to be liars and proved my innocence. The command dropped the charges for the General court-martial after the Article 32.
