Today was an inspiring day spent at the corporate office of Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. in Ada, Oklahoma. Pre-Paid Legal has an amazing insurance plan for legal services, a great staff, fabulous leadership through the original vision of Mr. Stonecipher, and an incredible facility. The training for their attorneys in their referral network such as myself, includes Service from the Heart, and remembering that it is the middle class most in need of help without funds to afford representation that most often seek assistance of attorneys in the Prepaid network.  I am very proud to be a Pre-Paid provider of legal services to Oklahomans in need. If you have Pre-Paid Legal be sure to ask for me. If you do not, look into purchasing a plan for legal access and big savings.

The American Bar Association Health Law Section partnered with the Cancer Legal Resource Center in Breast Cancer Advocacy Efforts to assemble talented attorneys from around the country to assist with the authoriship of resource materials for breast cancer patients and attorneys around the country. Also known as the ABA’s Breast Cancer Task Force, the organization has been providing education and materials since 1993 in its pro bono efforts.

Ms. Cinocca was fortunate enough to become involved in this project through the ABA Family Law section during her term as a council member. Ms. Cinocca’s efforts were aimed at editing the Family Law Section of the Litigation Guide. She assisted with drafting many portions thereof and ensuring the contents contributed by three or four other lawyers was consistent with a national focus toward cancer and other health related issues that clients may face. Her efforts took months of consistent work to make the final product submitted to the leadership of the task force as presentable and helpful as possible. This was the most important pro bono effort in which Ms. Cinocca engaged for 2009, and of which she is especially proud. It is difficult as an attorney with so many demands to put forth the hours this project required, but Ms. Cinocca felt strongly it was well worth the efforts of all involved.

If you or a loved one have health and legal issues that may coincide, please feel free to contact us.
