The MacDill Legal Office provides legal assistance to eligible clients every Monday thru Wednesday pending attorney availability.  Morning and afternoon appointments are available to meet with an attorney to discuss your personal civil law issues.  Please note, the highest priority is given to personnel who need mobilization or deployment-related legal assistance.

MacDill Legal Office Customer Service Hours:

Mon-Thur 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Fri. 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The MacDill Legal Office is closed on all federal holidays, Wingman Days, and AMC Family Days.


Will Appointments: The MacDill Legal Office prepares Last Will and Testaments by appointment only on Thursday mornings.  Please log on to our legal assistance website at https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil and create a will worksheet prior to scheduling an appointment.  After filling out your will worksheet the website will produce a ticket number, you must have your ticket number available when you call to book an appointment.  All married couples must have separate ticket numbers since we do not produce joint wills. Will appointments and legal assistance appointments are now booked out on a monthly basis.  Every Monday at 0800, unless otherwise specified on the voice recording when you call, we open our appointment book for another week, usually 3-4 weeks out from that current week.   Due to a high volume of clients, it is recommended you call early, beginning at 0800, which is when the phone lines open.  You can make an appointment in person as well, however, there is no guarantee that everyone waiting outside to make an appointment in person will get an appointment.  Please note, the highest priority is given to personnel who need mobilization or deployment-related wills.  Appointments for legal assistance or preparation of a Will can be made by calling (813) 828-4421. 

Power of attorney: Powers of attorney: Clients who need a Power of Attorney or need to have a document notarized can obtain those services on a walk-in basis during normal operating hours.  You can draft your Powers of Attorney online ahead of time through the legal assistance website as well (https://aflegalassistance.law.af.mil).  The MacDill Legal Office also provides assistance to claimants who use the centralized Air Force Claims Service Center (AFCSC) procedures for filing and processing household goods claims following permanent change of station moves. The AFCSC is available 24 hours a day at (937) 656-8044.
