XVIII Airborne Corps Legal Assistance programs provide free professional legal help to active duty and retired military members and their dependents. Legal assistance also helps certain survivors of deceased Armed Forces members. A legal assistance officer is a licensed attorney, though not always in the state where stationed. Legal Assistance attorneys give advice and help prepare legal documents and correspondence.
All the information the client discusses with a Legal Assistance Attorney is confidential and protected by the attorney-client privilege. The entire Legal Assistance staff zealously protects client confidentiality.
Before making a Legal Assistance appointment, you should do the following:
First, take logical steps to help yourself. If you find yourself in a legal dispute, try to talk to the other party before consulting an attorney. You can then give the attorney both sides of the story. You may find that the other party is reasonable and willing to resolve the matter. In your approach, be tactful and courteous. Many legal problems arise simply because the parties are discourteous and lose their tempers.
When you see your attorney, bring along all available documents, records, and correspondence about your question or problem. The nature of the information you provide will directly affect the quality of advice you receive.
If you need a document notarized, or a power of attorney, come in anytime during our normal work hours. Most banks will provide notary service for their customers free of charge. Additionally, many stationary stores will provide notary service for a nominal fee. According to North Carolina law, a notary may charge no more than $5.00 for a notary public service.
Remember, the most help you can give yourself is to use sound judgment and seek legal advice before acting on any legal or business matter.
Legal assistance may be provided to active duty members of the U.S. Armed Forces (and Reservists scheduled for deployment) and their dependents, retired members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their dependents, and dependent survivors of active duty and retired members. This statutory authority does not extend to civilian employees. Before our attorneys can talk with you, our staff will have to complete what is called a "conflicts check" to ensure that we do not represent both parties in a dispute.
