Ask a JAG: SLC to have half-day schedules from Dec. 23 and asks for feedback

By Capt. Nicole A. Oberjuerge
Judge Advocate, US Army

The Stuttgart Law Center is the primary legal office for members of the USAG Stuttgart community. Here at the SLC, we process claims and German tickets, give notaries and powers of attorney, and provide legal consultations with U.S. and German attorneys on a host of legal issues to include family law, military law, landlord/tenant law and personal finance.

Beginning Dec. 23, the SLC will be open half-days, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Additionally, the military attorneys will see only have walk-in appointments and German attorneys will only see scheduled appointments.  This schedule will continue until Jan. 3.

In Client Services, meeting the needs of the military community is our primary goal, taking actions to increase customer service. Client Services also submits monthly articles for the Stuttgart Citizen on preventative law topics and general information. And in coordination with the garrison Knowledge Management team, the SLC initiated an online-appointment request system so individuals can request appointments (links below). This is the first Army installation, and first Army JAG Corps Client Services Division, to offer an online appointment process.

Further, the SLC has requested the addition of another German attorney to ease the backlog of appointment requests for individuals requesting assistance on German legal issues.

We also put in time-limited SLC parking signs to enable clients to park near the Law Center.

We want to hear from the community on ways we can better serve you and receive feedback on what is helpful. Tell us about topics you want to hear about on “Ask a JAG” or read about in the Stuttgart Citizen. We need to hear about the processes that are not working, but we also need to hear about the processes and systems which are working. If you like or appreciate any of the listed changes, let us know. If you hate them, let us know. To provide feedback, please put in an ICE comment to the Staff Judge Advocate/Stuttgart Law Center/ Tax Office.

We look forward to serving you.
