AFSPA proudly serves our exclusive membership with the best health, dental, disability, life, and travel insurance plans. The unique needs of our members led us to seek out the best partnerships to provide other professional services as well. 

Here you will find the summaries and contact information for our U.S.-based partner firms. Their experts will offer you legal, tax, long term care consulting, and financial services.

 


With many of our members living and working abroad, it can be especially difficult to address legal issues that occur both overseas and domestically. AFSPA has arranged for several law firms in Washington, DC and Virginia to be available to represent our members. 

Common problem areas in which it may be important to have legal advice, document preparation, and/or representation include wills and living wills; trusts; estate administration; estate planning; buying, selling, and renting real estate; tax advice; starting and operating a business; accidents; domestic and elder law; and disputes.

Here’s what you need to know about these arrangements:

  • AFSPA has arranged with each firm to give preferred rates to AFSPA members for typical legal services. 
  • Each firm practices in the greater Washington, DC area; they all represent clients anywhere who need legal services involving the Federal government. 
  • Each firm has agreed to help find other counsel, if the firm you contact does not practice in the location or field of law involved in your case.
  • The firm you choose to retain will propose a fee arrangement tailored to the case at hand. 
  • You should feel free to ask questions about the proposed fee, express any concerns you may have, and make suggestions.
