Personnel Eligible for Legal Assistance
LEGAL ASSISTANCE There  will  be  times  when  you  will  need  to provide  referral  information  to  service  members who  may  need  legal  assistance.  These  members will need to know what type of legal assistance is available  in  the  Navy.  The  questions  concerning legal assistance will be most likely raised during counseling   interviews.   The   information   in   the following   paragraphs   is   designed   to   help   you handle these questions. After reading this section, you should have a  good  idea  as  to  what  services are  available  and  to  whom  you  should  refer  the service  members  who  have  questions  concerning legal assistance. The Department of the Navy legal assistance program   provides   free   attorney   assistance   to members,  their  dependents,  and  other   eligible clients   regarding   personal   legal   matters.   The legal   assistance   program   provides   for   in-office attorney  advice,  aid,  and  referral.  The  following two related programs provide additional services: 1.    The     preventive law program that promotes “legal readiness” and education  to  help individuals avoid legal problems 2.    The  expanded  legal  assistance  program that  provides  in-court  representation  in  certain geographical    areas    concerning    selected    legal issues This   legal   assistance   is   provided   at   legal assistance  offices  located  at  naval  legal  service offices (NLSOs) and detachments. Legal assistance  services  are  also  available  at  other legal offices where judge advocates are assigned. The  personnel  who  provide  legal  assistance are   attorneys   and   judge   advocates   who   are authorized by the Judge Advocate General, or by his or her designated representatives, to perform legal    assistance    functions.    Nonlawyer    legal officers, Legal men (LNs), independent duty LNs, and legal clerks assist attorneys, but they cannot provide  legal  advice  or  provide  services  that  call for the professional judgment of an attorney.
