About the Program
The Oklahoma Lawyers for America's Heroes Program was launched on Veterans Day 2010 to provide legal advice and assistance to those who have honorably served this country and are unable to afford to hire an attorney. Through this program, lawyers from across this great state stand at the ready to give legal advice and assistance to qualifying Oklahoma's veterans, retirees, active duty enlisted servicemembers, guard members and reserve members.
...just as no one is left behind on the battlefield, no one who has honorably served this country should be left behind in the legal system or denied access to justice because they cannot afford legal representation...
Our mission is to offer free one-on-one legal advice and assistance to Oklahoma’s service members, past and present, who have honorably defended our freedoms, and who otherwise cannot afford or do not have access to the legal services they need. Whether it is help with a disability claim, family law issues, landlord-tenant problems, consumer rights questions or other legal issue which might befall our men and women in uniform, Oklahoma lawyers are ready to help.
The goal of the Oklahoma Lawyers for America's Heroes Program and the OBA support of the program is to ensure that, just as no one should be left behind on the battlefield, no one who has honorably served this country and has insufficient financial means to afford legal representation should be left behind in the legal system or denied access to justice. We are dedicated to serve those who have served our country honorably.
