OFFICE OF THE STAFF JUDGE ADVOCATE

The mission of the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (commonly referred to as OSJA, JAG, or Legal Office) is to provide legal advice to the Commanders, Staffs, Soldiers, Retirees, and their dependents in the six main legal disciplines for the U.S. Army—Military Justice, Administrative and Civil Law (including Contract Law, Labor Law, and Ethics), Legal Assistance, Claims, and Operational and Domestic Law. The Client Services Office provides free legal advice and services to all ID cardholders, including powers of attorney, wills, estates, tax preparation, divorces, adoptions, name changes, notarizations, and claims assistance. The Trial Defense Service, a separate legal section located within the OSJA, advises Soldiers facing non-judicial punishment, court-martial, or administrative separation.

The Office of the Staff Judge Advocate is committed to provide legal advice and services to the Command, staff, and subordinate elements. SJA coordinates with commanders at all levels and exercises staff supervision over administration of military justice. We also provide centralized administrative support for commanders for processing of courts-martial and administrative elimination actions; provide legal advice and counsel concerning military affairs, legal assistance, and procurement to authorized personnel; and process claims both for and against the government.
