Legal Services

The mission of the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate (SJA) is the delivery of all legal services to the Commander, United States Air Force Warfare Center. Legal support is also provided to the 99th Air Base Wing, 57th Wing, 98 Range Wing, and Mike O'Callaghan Federal Hospital. 

One of the primary responsibilities of the SJA is to provide legal advice to commanders regarding military justice implemented under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). The office also helps military members, retirees, and their family members with personal civil legal problems. 

Types of Services/Elements

SJA accomplishes this mission through three Elements:

Civil Law

The mission of the Civil Law Element is to provide support for USAFWC units in numerous areas including contract law, civilian employee labor law, ethics, and operations law. This Element is also responsible for the legal assistance program that provides legal advice to active duty military members and retirees addressing personal, civil legal issues.


The Claims Element is responsible for processing monetary claims filed against the government and asserting claims in favor of the government. The vast majority of the claims workload is derived from government-paid moves, medical care costs, and automobile accidents. 

Military Justice

The mission of the Military Justice Element is to screen disciplinary matters. This includes reviewing evidence and making recommendations to commanders about the appropriate disposition of disciplinary issues.
