If your family has been victimized by wildfires and you need legal assistance concerning your rights, Legal Aid’s Oklahoma City Law Office has created a direct phone line you can call for immediate help and talk to an attorney on-the-spot.
Neil Lynn, managing attorney for the Oklahoma City office, urges people whose homes and apartments, personal possessions and/or important personal papers and files have been burned or destroyed, to call toll free 855.488.6814 for immediate counsel and advice from one of Legal Aid’s experienced staff attorneys. Additionally, Legal Aid is working with the Red Cross to set up an onsite intake area for fire victims.
