Judge Advocate

The pursuit of justice is at the center of every Air Force objective. So the rights of Airmen are held in the highest regard and are defended and supported by top legal minds like Air Force Judge Advocates (JA). These attorneys handle a wide variety of legal issues including international law, operations law, environmental law and military and civilian personnel issues. From trial preparation to post-trial actions, they provide important legal counsel every step of the way.

    Living Will: A living will expresses your desires regarding medical treatment and termination of life support in the event of a terminal, incurable medical condition.

    Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare: This power of attorney appoints a trusted person to make medical care decisions in the event of incompetence or if you cannot speak for yourself.

  • General POA:
     A general POA allows you (the grantor) to give a broad range of powers to a trusted person (the grantee) to act on your behalf in areas such as banking transactions, business transactions, selling of real estate and personal property, and taxes. Note that certain military offices, such as Finance or Personnel offices, are unlikely to accept General Powers of Attorney.
