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.
Legal assistance is available to members of the Armed Forces and their family, retired military personnel and their family, and survivors of members of the Armed Forces who would be eligible if the service member were alive. Reserve personnel on active duty for 30 days or more are also entitled to legal assistance.
Legal assistance attorneys provide advice on most personal legal matters, review legal documents such as contracts and leases (if they are not related to a private income-producing business) as well as prepare wills, correspondence and other legal documents. They are not authorized to appear with you as your attorney of record in any court. Issues on which advice is provided include automobile accidents, wills, credit matters, repossessions, consumer complaints, living wills, health surrogate forms, tax assistance, life insurance contracts and powers of attorney. The services of the legal assistance office are provided without charge.
Attorney walk-in services are available only on Fridays at 9 a.m. ending when the limited slots are filled. Powers of attorney, notarizations, health surrogate forms and living wills may be obtained on a walk-in basis every day during normal business hours, but wills are done every Tuesday by appointment only. Consultations with attorneys are only by appointment.
Due to COVID-19, all protons are required to have face covers or masks.
The claims division provides support to potential claimants from Fort Knox as well as those from Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, and the eastern two-thirds of Kentucky. This support includes notifying claimants of procedures involved in filing claims for damage to household goods and privately owned vehicles shipped at government expense; filing claims that have arisen due to unusual or unforeseen circumstances such as natural disasters, acts of God, vandalism and thefts on the military installation; and reviewing and approving claims for damage to property and personal injury which are a result of negligently performed military activities. The office also recovers funds from the carrier industry for damage to household goods and from third parties where the third party's actions are responsible for the medical care provided by the U.S. to injured soldiers and family members.
