Legal Branch RAF

Criminal Solicitor Services for the BFG Community

If you have a legal problem and you are a serving member of the British Armed Forces based anywhere outside the UK, a dependant, a member of NAAFI staff or if you are subject to Service law or discipline then we may be able to provide you with free and specialist legal advice.

We have a team of qualified solicitors ready to provide you with legal advice, assistance and representation. All the services that we provide are free from start to finish.



We specialise in criminal law in particular in relation to the following areas:

  • Providing you with a solicitor to represent you in RMP / SIB interviews
  • Advice on Summary Hearings (before the CO)
  • Advice and representation at the Summary Appeal Court
  • Advice and representation at the Court Martial


Although we specialise in criminal law our team of solicitors can also provide advice and assistance in relation to the following areas:

  • AGAI action
  • Family law and divorce (where Army Legal Services are unable to assist)
  • Service Complaints
  • Certifying documents


Why instruct RAF Legal Services?

As solicitors all the advice and assistance you receive from us is covered by legal privilege and this means that it will not be shared with anybody else. We are completely independent from your Chain of Command and under no circumstances would we discuss your case with them without your express permission.


As members of the military we understand the military. We understand the particular and sometimes unusual circumstances that members of the Armed Forces find themselves in when serving overseas.


The advice we provide is free. If we are instructed to represent you at the RMP / SIB station then you will not pay anything. The same is true if we represent you at a trial before the Court Martial. There may be circumstances where you may have to pay for some additional services, for example if an expert witness is required, however this will be discussed with you well in advance if we consider it to be necessary.


We are based on Normandy Barracks in Sennelager and are therefore easily accessible to all the BFG community.
