Legal Assistance

Military Justice
The LAAFB Legal Office provides legal advice on a full range of disciplinary matters to the SMC Commander, as well as to subordinate units and partner commands under the worldwide mission. We enable commanders to uphold good order and discipline through the efficient and equitable administration of military justice, ranging from administrative actions to general courts-martial.

The Area Defense Counsel (ADC) provides Air Force members independent legal representation. Airmen facing adverse administrative actions or airmen suspected of having committed an offense under the Uniform Code of Justice (UCMJ) can receive confidential legal advice outside of the SMC/JA chain of command.

Air Force members can schedule an ADC appointment by calling the ADC at (661) 277-2809 or DSN 527-2809
