Law Day

Ask A Lawyer Free Legal Advice - Thursday, May 3

Every year, Oklahomans with legal questions may call a toll-free number from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and speak to an attorney at no charge. 

This year will mark the 42nd year OBA members offered free legal advice to the public. On May 3, 2018, 239 lawyers answered 1,418 phone calls and 361 emails, in both English and Spanish, across 27 different counties. Volunteers donated 515 hours in time and $77,325 in billable hours. This annual event is a unique opportunity to provide a valuable community service while promoting a positive public image of attorneys and the OBA.
