OBA Disaster Relief Assistance
Through a partnership formed between the Oklahoma Bar Association's Disaster Relief program; FEMA and the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, lawyers are needed to offer no-cost, disaster-related legal advice to those in Caddo, Cleveland, Comanche, Creek, Garfield, Grant, Greer, Kiowa, Lincoln, Logan, McClain, Okfuskee, Oklahoma, Pawnee, Payne and Pottawatomie counties.
The OBA has set up a hotline, 866-341-8416, for victims to call with legal questions, and a disaster relief website where they can email in their questions. Advice will only be offered for legal questions related to the May 2013 tornadoes.
Since the Moore tornado on May 20, 2013, over 250 OBA members have volunteered to offer free legal advice to storm victims. As of June 13, 280 families or individuals have taken advantage of the free service provided by the OBA and its partner, Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma.
