December 2015 Featured Volunteer: Brandee Hancock and Kim Kramer
- Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma, Inc.
This month our spotlight shines on Brandee Hancock and Kim Kramer for helping those who have no other options.
These two volunteer attorneys along with Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma staff attorney Amanda Lilley spent Veteran’s Day helping low-income persons get access to justice. Many persons were provided legal services at the first annual free will clinic held by LASO’s Stillwater Law Office.
Kim Kramer practices law in the areas of Bankruptcy Law and Estate Planning helping clients find their path to debt relief and a fresh start. She returned to private practice in 2010 after 10 years as a Sr. Legal Research Consultant at LexisNexis. Kim obtained her law degree from the University Of Oklahoma School of Law. She is Vice President of Payne County Bar Association and member of Oklahoma Bar Association and National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
Brandee Hancock is a Staff Attorney at the Office of Legal Counsel for the Board of Regents for the Oklahoma A&M Colleges. She graduated with a Juris Doctor from the University Of Oklahoma School of Law. Brandee is an active volunteer with LASO’s Stillwater office and serves as President of Payne County Bar Association.
These free clinics offered by many of Oklahoma’s Legal Aid offices, conducted with the assistance of local volunteer attorneys, have been very successful. Organizers report that the joint effort is highly significant in addressing a serious community issue. Many disabled, seniors, and veterans have had their wills prepared as a result of these free workshops. Most adults should at least consider having a will. A person does not have to be wealthy or older to consider making a will.
