When Do I Need a Military or JAG Lawyer?

There are many instances in which you may need the help of a military lawyer or JAG lawyer. If you are not familiar with JAG lawyers, they are military lawyers that are part of the Judge Advocate General Corps. JAG lawyers can offer help to military personnel in both legal and non-legal matters. Some of the areas JAG lawyers offer help in are contract law, immigration law, family law, estate planning, notary services, and more! 

Here are some common instances in which having a JAG or military lawyer will be extremely beneficial:

  • Writing a living will
  • Writing a last will
  • Designating power of attorney
