Mission Statement

The purpose of Oklahoma Lawyers for
Children is to use the time, talent and resources of qualified pro bono
attorneys to represent children in the Juvenile Division of the Oklahoma County
District Court. Principally, this will be through work with the Juvenile Public
Defender's office or by assignment from the Oklahoma County District Court
Judges, although there may be other ways that representation of deprived
children can be accomplished.

OLFC's volunteer pro bono attorneys give their time freely so
that these children's legal representation will not simply be adequate but
excellent, and carried out in accordance with the local state and national
standards for representation of children.

OLFC's non-attorney volunteers provide Shelter Volunteers
that visit children taken into custody in preparation for their Emergency Show
Cause Hearings and provide Home Studies to aid the placement of children as
quickly as possible. OLFC also provides other volunteers that provide legal
support services such as court reporters, private investigators and other
services to help ensure that these children are protected and receive the finest
legal representation possible.

Description

OLFC is not
just for attorneys! OLFC's volunteer base needs both attorneys and non-lawyers
to work to protect children and promote their health and well being.
Our mission is to provide children with the full benefit of legal counsel, but
it is also much more. If you are an attorney but are unfamiliar with juvenile
law, OLFC will train you in preparation for representing a child. If you are a
non-lawyer but would like to volunteer, there are many, many ways you can
help!

OLFC needs: Shelter Volunteers, private
investigators, court reporters, psychologists, translators, legal assistants,
volunteers to help with the OLFC office, PR and Social Media management. If
you have a place in your heart for the needs of a child, we have a place for
you.
