Most legal assistance is provided by the Joint Base Judge Advocate for all branches of service on McGuire. Attorneys provide legal advice in connection with personal civil legal matters to support and sustain command effectiveness and readiness.
Eligible beneficiaries of legal assistance include members of the armed forces who are on active duty, reservists on federal active duty under Title 10 United States Code, retirees, and dependents. If you do not fall into one of the listed categories please call the legal office in order to determine eligibility.
Legal services provided include, but are not limited to, wills, notaries, advanced medial directives, powers of attorney, domestic relations, adoption, Service Members’ Civil Relief Act, consumer affairs, and landlord-tenant issues. The legal office does not advise on civilian criminal matters or matters that have the potential to involve the client in adverse actions under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. For matters that involve adverse administrative or UCMJ action the member should receive legal assistance from the appropriate military defense counsel. The Air Force Area Defense Counsel can be reached at 754-2349. The Army Trial Defense Services’ office can be reached at (609) 562-3075.
