Announcement: Fort Carson Legal Assistance Office will be changing its walk-in procedures effective 02 July 2012. Clients may now sign in for a walk-in appointment beginning at 8:30 A.M. on Monday and Thursday. If walk-in appointment slots are still available when a client signs in, he or she will be instructed to return at 12:45 P.M. Our attorneys will begin seeing clients at 1:00 P.M. This will reduce the total waiting time for the client and eliminate having to wait without a guaranteed appointment slot. If you have any questions concerning the new policy, please contact the Legal Assistance Office. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
