The 460th Space Wing Staff Judge Advocate's mission is to provide effective full-spectrum legal counsel and capabilities to maximize missile warning and deliver outstanding installation support.
The members of the "JAG" team consist of highly qualified and educated attorneys and paralegals that serve Buckley's unit commanders and first sergeants in the proper handling of military justice, adverse administrative legal issues, operations law, environmental law, contracts, labor, ethics, and legal opinions. The legal office staff also provides personal legal assistance to all active duty, National Guard and Reserve members on Title 10 orders as well as retirees with valid military identification cards. The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate strives to provide the Buckley Air Force Base community with quality legal services such as powers of attorney, wills, claims, notary services, tax preparation, general family and preventative law or legal assistance.
To schedule an appointment for wills or legal assistance please dial 720-847-6444, option 2. If you require services or military justice assistance after hours, please contact the 460th Space Wing Command Post at 847-6400 and ask for the on-call JAG. If you are facing adverse action and need representation, please contact the Area Defense Council at 720-847-6967.
The professionals at your base legal office are trained and qualified to offer you legal services as a part of your benefits. The legal office cannot provide legal assistance via the telephone.
The Air Force Legal Assistance Web site offers basic information on legal assistance topics that commonly affect military members such as consumer/financial affairs, family law, Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and the Service Members Civil Relief Act (SCRA). It is recommended that you review the information listed on the Web site for your particular issue prior to speaking to an attorney.
Military members facing any administrative or punitive actions should contact the Area Defense Counsel at 720-847-6967.
Everyone should have a will. Without a will, state law will determine your executor, the distribution and division of your assets, the selection of a guardian for your children and other important decisions. Fortunately, those eligible for legal assistance can have their wills and other estate planning needs met free of charge by scheduling an appointment with a legal assistance attorney.
