JA: Are you overseas or stateside?
Customer: JAG has suggested I find a civ atty that is experienced in appeals, which is fine but I can't find one stateside
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am sorry for your loss. But do not understand what you mean by "appeal LOD"?

That is not possible (there is no way to "appeal" an LOD). What is it you want to accomplish...why are you requesting to change this document?
