Legal assistance is available to you and your family. Below, you’ll find information about claims and installation specific programs and services. If you have questions, reach out to the legal assistance program at your installation.
The household claims process has been streamlined with the development of the Air Force Claims Service Center. You can contact the CSC help desk at DSN 312-986-8044 or 877-754-1212. They are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday – Friday (except federal holidays). We are here to assist you in regard to the scanning of your documents and obtaining the contact information for the carriers that may be involved in your move.
Any other claims, such as government, hospital and Army and Air Force Exchange Service claims, come through our office for the proper guidance in submission and completion of those claims.
The Altus Air Force Base Office of the Staff Judge Advocate offers free professional legal advice concerning a wide range of personal civil legal matters. Legal assistance is available to active-duty personnel (including National Guard and reservists on Title 10 status), their dependents and retired military personnel, regardless of service branch or unit of assignment. Attorney-client confidentiality is strictly observed.
Legal assistance may be provided to those with a valid military identification. Air Force attorneys may give legal advice but cannot draft court documents or represent members or their families in court. In addition, the Legal Office is not equipped to perform estate planning. You can call the Legal Office to schedule an appointment; however, Air Force attorneys may not provide any legal advice or legal information by phone.

Air Force attorneys may not represent members in civilian court or civilian business matters, but they can offer legal advice early and often in order to prevent problems from escalating.
Area Defense Counsel
The Area Defense Counsel serves as the public defender for Altus AFB. The ADC defends military members in court-martial cases or when any negative administrative actions are being brought against them. These types of actions include Article 15, unfavorable information file, control roster, letters of reprimand, admonishment, counseling, Office of Planning Research and enlisted performance report referrals, denial of reenlistment and just about any other action that could negatively affect a member’s career. The ADC staff ensures confidentiality with regard to the information provided by clients. The ADC is independent of the base Legal Office and the base command structure, meaning the ADC reports to no one on Altus AFB. Please call 580-481-7501 or DSN 312-866-7501 for assistance. The ADC is located on the second floor of Building 52 in Room 2101.
