Child Care: Other than POA's and Notaries, our office cannot accommodate children during briefs, appointments, and walk-ins. Arranging child care is the responsibility of the client; drop-ins are available at the New River Child Development Center, 449-6712.
The LAO maintains liaison with relevant North Carolina agencies, such as the North Carolina State Bar Committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel, the North Carolina Department of Insurance, and the Consumer Protection Division of the North Carolina Attorney General.
LAO also provides notary public services and assistance concerning immigration and naturalization. Services available from the LAO are provided as resources allow and generally include assistance with the following: pre-deployment legal preparedness, estate planning, family law, consumer protection, debtor-creditor problems, and landlord-tenant problems.
Through various means, LAO provides information to the public with a view towards consumer education and prevention of victimization. LAO prepares cases alleging a pattern or practice of harmful business for review and appropriate action by the Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Board.
