Free Legal Assistance for Active Military

We've done a post on free legal help for veterans.  But there's help for active military, too.  I ran across something from the Ohio Attorney General's office describing assistance that they will perform for members of the military and their families.  This includes help in drafting wills and power of attorney forms, as well as enforcing a military member's rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.  That's the federal law that provides protection for military personnel from a number of some civil obligations like taxes and some debts while in the service.  To contact the Ohio Attorney General's office, call (800) 282-0515.

For those in other places, Military.com has gathered up a list of other places where service members can find free legal help for these and other issues, like taxes and consumer issues. People eligible for these services include military dependents and reservists.
