Your attorney is correct. You are better off offering to resign instead of being discharged.
In either case your characterization of service on the DD-214 you receive with be "General," however, a description of "resigned" will be much easier to explain to potential employers than "administrative discharge."
I hope this helps.
Those charges are typically brought to court-martial. In my opinion, there is little chance you'll receive an honorable discharge. You're better off with a resignation than you are a discharge.
In the grand scheme of things, you'll still have a general either way, but I think that one way will present fewer problems when you're seeking a job.
