U.S. Army Reserve JAG units are authorized to provide consultations in civilian legal matters unrelated to military service, as resources allow. They will not provide representation for you in a civilian court. You will not receive complex estate planning services. If you have a military criminal matter, please request Trial Defense Services representation on their page. If you are a member of the U.S. Army Reserve, and wish to request Legal Assistance, click the box on the right and fill out the form. Save the form as a pdf and email it to the Legal Operations Detachment closest to where you reside (see below.) Email will generally provide the fastest response to your request. Calling the phone number listed will not connect you with an attorney, but will direct you to a unit member who will likely advise you to fill out the request form. Be aware that these are drilling reserve units whose members are not on active duty. You should expect a response within one week. If you have not been contacted within one week of sending your email, please advise the Client Services POC at:

If you have questions about the scope of legal assistance available, or if you do not receive a response to a request for legal assistance within one week, forward your original request to the U.S. Army Reserve Legal Command Client Services Core Competency POC at:

Annual "Legal" Checkup
Soldiers who do not have immediate legal assistance needs are invited to annually complete a questionnaire designed to walk the Soldier through the most common situations that may require the aid of a legal assistance provider.

The questionnaire is completely confidential.

After the questionnaire is completed, the Soldier can print the results and use them as a basis for consulting a legal assistance provider.

The Reserve Soldier Legal Readiness Review (R-SLRR) is located at
