Attorneys across Oklahoma will provide free legal advice Thursday, Sept. 30, during the 70th annual statewide Law Day celebration. Oklahoma City and Tulsa lawyers will staff the statewide, toll-free hotline between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.
The toll-free number to call is 800-456-8525 or email AskALawyer@okbar.org. Legal questions may also be submitted online at www.okbar.org now until Sept. 30.
“This annual event gives us the opportunity to provide a much-needed community service,” said Oklahoma Bar Association President Mike Mordy of Ardmore. “Volunteer attorneys will be standing by to take calls and emails. Wanting to help people is what motivated us to become lawyers, and we encourage Oklahomans with legal questions to call in.”
Lawyers in other counties will also be giving free legal advice. About 300 lawyers will be volunteering statewide.
The accompanying Ask A Lawyer television program will air across the state on Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. on OETA. The show is designed to share information about legal issues. This year’s topics are bankruptcy, divorce and a spotlight on the OU College of Law legal clinic.
