Ask A Lawyer

2012

In this program, we'll meet Oklahomans who turned to legal system for help with a problem, and the lawyers who assisted them. We'll learn about an innovative program in Tulsa that assists families as they go through a divorce. Participants will explain why the help they received made a difference for their children, and why they believe the program should be expanded statewide. We'll talk to a couple who need a new roof after suffering a devastating Oklahoma hailstorm, only to discover that their insurance company was unwilling to pay their claim. We'll meet a man who found he had no place to live after he struggled to turn his life around after his release from prison. We'll update you on a program providing free legal assistance to military service members and veterans. And our studio audience will have their legal questions answered by a panel of legal experts.
