A: Ms. Harroz and Mr. Lehr have covered the major resources. You could check if any additional resources are available through the Oklahoma Bar Association. You could also check with local law schools if they have clinics or workshops where students intern and earn credit while serving in programs to assist the public. Good luck to you and I hope things improve.
