An Air Force legal assistance attorney cannot represent members in court, or in an administrative hearing. Legal assistance attorneys cannot offer legal advice on criminal issues, official Air Force matters (Such as promotions, assignments, or administrative actions), or matters involving your personal business (Except Soldier's and Sailor's Relief Act issues). In these case, or in other cases requiring specialized knowledge of particular areas of the law, the Legal Office may recommend consultation with a civilian attorney.

Air Force Legal Assistance Website
The Air Force JAG Corps created the Air Force Legal Assistance Website, for active duty, reserve component members, retirees, and dependents. Because it is a public site, clients may access the site's features from the comfort of their homes without a CAC card. The site's features include legal topics such as wills and family law issues; legal worksheets (questionnaires for will, living wills, and powers of attorney); and an online survey. While the website increases convenience for clients, everyone should note the following: Information on the website is for educational and informational purposes only. Clients will not have the ability to print a legal document (will, power of attorney, etc.) from the website. Clients will need to visit the legal office and provide their ticket numbers to obtain their legal documents. The website is designed for client convenience, but no one is required to use the website prior to visiting the legal office.
