Actually, military lawyers normally will NOT handle cases like this. They are often not licensed to practice law in the local state, so they can only handle federal matters and certain other things like wills. At least, that is what a military lawyer told me.
As of a year ago, in Arizona, the state bar had a phone number you could call to ask for legal advice. You explain the problem, then a $35 payment (credit card over the phone) buys you 30 minutes face-to-face with a lawyer who specializes in your problem. You might see if your state has something like this. Legal advice over the Internet is scary. If you have money already spent, spend a bit more and talk to a licensed lawyer...
