JAG Lawyers Offers An Incredible Military Career

Many military service people have a need for routine legal services.  Whether he’s a power of attorney, the need to draft a will, signing a contract or a lease, or even just to have a documented notarized seal, all of us need legal help from time to time.  The good news is, these and other services are available for Service members free from their local JAG office. Judge Advocates are the title that military lawyers use. (JAGs).

The good thing is that their services are free and available to Service members and their families. They can offer help on a variety of things, both legal and non-legal matters.  Even little things like purchasing a vehicle or choosing to rent an apartment, even paying taxes it is a good idea to know that you have a place to go where you can get free legal advice. Legal Offices are available for assistance on almost every installation, ship and base.  A Judge Advocate is member of the bar, and someone who has graduated from an accredited law school. They are licensed to practice before federal or state courts, and also in military court issues.  If a judge advocate helps an individual with personal legal issues they are referred to as Legal Assistance Lawyers.

Do You Have What It Takes?

For the most part the services of Judge Advocates and their staff is reserved for the use of Active Duty personnel, but in some rare cases certain services may be available to Reserve and Guard members during annual training periods or TDY duty serving on active duty.  Each branch of the service has its own Judge Advocate Generals staff, and each are ran a little bit differently.  Each service also has different rules as to what specific legal help and assistance they provide Service members and their families.


If a military legal assistance attorney is not able to resolve your situation, they can often refer you to an attorney in the civilian community that may specialize on your issue or situation. Legal assistance offices can help often with the following:

-Preparing and Drafting Wills. -Preparing Power of Attorney documents. -As Counsel and Advocate for wronged clients. -Making and dealing with complex legal issues -Dealing with and negotiating with other attorneys or the government. -Family and domestic affairs (pre-nuptial agreements, divorce, adoption, custody issues.) -Consumer Affairs that involve the Service member. -Estate Planning and executing wills. -Reviewing Contracts before signing.

These services and others are available at your local JAG office, and best of all they are absolutely free.

my name is jose rivera i am a soldier, stationed out of wheeler army airfield [hawaii]…i am currently on tdy duty it was for my wife/son my wife was pregnant she gave birth 2 days ago to our son who prior to comming out to philadelphia we knew had a congenital heart defect. we were told that if the baby were to have surgery we could be compassionately reassigned..however in the last 48 hours our son has decreased, we have been told by the doctors that it is unlikely he will make it until the morning, i have been in touch with my supervisors and they dont seem to know the protocol, but i feel i cant go back to that post…there are too many memories and i have lost too much, both my wife and i in the time we were stationed there. i guess i want to know if there is anything we can do to get reassigned somewhere else. the intensity for not wanting to go back makes me think about going awol, as much as i know it is a bad decesion for my future, i know i will not perform well as a soldier that far away from my family, or wife because my wife is insistant she doesnt want to leave again.

Dear Sirs,
I am trying very hard to find an attorney that can look into my fathers plane Crash back in the late 1950’s. He was a naval test pilot by the name of Lt. Jg Howard J. Brown Jr. I was only 4 years old when he crashed his plane in San Diego. My family has tried and tried to get government to investigate this crash and also there is no known info we ever can get from the Government nor the Navy. How can you help? My Mother who is in her 70’s now is not happy with any results about this.
Please if you can refer me or what can be done.

Thank you
Gregory A. Brown
Denver, CO

I am in the national guard currently on ADSW orders (active duty special work) and i am having an issue with my ex-finace. I signed a car loan for my ex-fiancé for $10,000. We are now broken up and I want him to take over the loan to clear my name. With this huge loan out on my name I am having problems trying to take out another loan. My ex fiancé says that it’s not his problem and he doesn’t have anyone to help him out to get the loan out my name. Is there anything I can do to take care of this matter? I am trying to move on with my life it’s been a year now and I have been seeing someone else and we are expecting a baby in October and I want this taken care of.

My husband had some land that he owned back taxes on and while he was deployed overseas the county sold the land for the back taxes without notifying he. They sent him a notice that the land had been sold but never sent one saying it was up for sale. Is this legal? Is their any way to get the property back or get compensated for the value of the property? Thanks so much for any help you can give me.
Thanks,
Melissa

My son is in the process of a divorce. He is currently deployed at the border. He hired an attorney here in Texas, however she didn’t help him in time. Now he is told he needs to hire another attorney out of Oklahoma, since that is where his soon to be ex-wife lives. I am looking for Jag attorney to help him with this divorce. Please help. They are wanting him to appear for court over the phone without representation.

My son is in the Military, he has requested my assistance to straighten out his child support issues. He has 2 children from a previous relationship w/o a support order and 1 child from his current but separated wife. Current wife gets his BAH support. Is it possible to get his BAH prorated to include 2/3 to 2 children and 1/3 to 1 child? He is out of country and communication is limited. He has been separated from his current wife for over a year but has not started divorce procedings. At this time he just wants to give fare support to all his children. According to the Military web site he is entitled to free legal consultation and wants me to get this taken care of.
Thank you,

To Who This May Concern, My name is Loriann Meister. My son is 13 going on 14. He is in desperate need of your help. When he was 11 he got sucked into a bad situation that got him put on probation for a year. He was almost finished and a kid at school knowing he was on probation beat him up. He did nothing in return he just took the beating. But because of that they violated his probation and put him in a placement facility. He have been in placement for a year an three months. The reason for my e-mail is because he really wants to join the Military. My husband was in for ten years, my oldest son is currently in, he is an E2 his MOS is M1A1 Abrams. My brother is also in Fort Bragg as a Lieutenant Colonel, he runs the OR out of Fort Bragg. My sons current lawyer is not the sharpest tool in the shed. If anything I think he is Making matters worse.

I am in the Army Reserve I have just been issued a letter of seperation from the military
due to my inability to pass the APFT (Army Physical fitness Test). The reason for that is I have two injuries preventing me to complete my run. Until last month I was never told about the process to make it military approved for a profile. I have been in the process to make it a profile since last month but this month was given this letter. I love the military and I want to stay a part of my unit they are a part of my family what can I do

I’m astounded to see how many people think this is the proper forum to ask personal legal questions. This is an informational article. If you are active service or retired or family of such, contact your local JAG office to ask questions or seek advice. If you aren’t contact the specific branch you have questions regarding. This is NOT a place where some JAG Lawyer will be reading comments to provide PRIVATE advice!!!!!
Also, the “spam” comments should just be removed – they contribute nothing.
