- Organization: Oklahoma Bar Association
As a long-time volunteer for Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, John E. Miley of Oklahoma City has proven his compassion for the plight of those living in poverty. His commitment to Legal Aid and other causes earned him the 2009 OBA Outstanding Pro Bono Service Award, which he received at the OBA Annual Meeting last month.
Mr. Miley has chaired the Oklahoma County Bar Association’s Legal Aid Committee for the past three years and has consistently volunteered at Legal Aid’s Third Saturday Legal Clinic at Epworth United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City, a program that provides both a legal clinic and a medical clinic at the church where low-income individuals and families can come for assistance. His dedication to the clinic is so strong that he even recruited his twin brother David to volunteer at the clinic with him. Legal Aid and their clients have clearly benefited from Mr. Miley’s work in the field and will continue to benefit from his commitment to volunteer work.
Mr. Miley is the deputy general counsel of the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission. He is president of the general counsels’ forum and chairman of the Oklahoma County Bar Pro Bono Committee.
