How To Get Involved
Are you looking for a lawyer?
ProBono.Net/OK is a lawyer-to-lawyer network. We do not provide a referral information directly for people looking to find a lawyer.
If you need to find a lawyer, please visit http://www.oklaw.org.
If you are in need of an attorney but cannot afford to hire one, you can find the location of Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma office serving your county at the Legal Aid web site www.legalaidok.org
You may also try looking contacting the Oklahoma Bar Association's web site (www.okbar.org) for the Find A Lawyer program or a phone number for your local county bar association.
While some referral services offer low-fee options, most of the attorneys will expect to be paid their usual fees.
Are you a private practitioner?
If you are affiliated with a pro bono panel in Oklahoma, you can join the Oklahoma Civil Law Practice area called the Advocate Resource Center, or one of the National or other state practice areas. Just go back to the home page, click on the practice area on the left, and then click on the Join This Area link and submit the information requested. Within a day, you will get a password and can start participating fully in the practice area.
Are you a law firm?
There are a number of ways for you to support ProBono.Net/OK.

There are a number of ways to get involved.
