Important Resources for Oklahoma Attorneys
Know the Risks: Being On Your Client’s Board of Directors It can be very gratifying, both personally and monetarily, to be asked to serve on a client’s board of directors. It is also easy to understand why a client might make the request. The attorney may have worked closely with the company’s founders to create the business and will likely have a solid grasp of the company’s aims, the marketplace challenges it faces and its associations with industry partners, vendors,...
A couple of things make it increasingly difficult to achieve client satisfaction in the provision of legal services. Starting out with a disgruntled client who is never happy and has already been to four other lawyers creates a mountain that is very difficult to climb. But, the other very tough situation is a client who begins with expected results that are probably impossible to ever obtain. What Do You Want? Several years ago, a very experienced lawyer told me they were...
With the combined expense of actual office space, staff and equipment, many lawyers choose to enter into an office sharing arrangement as an economical way to hang out their shingle. Although there may be initial cost-saving benefits, there are disadvantages to sharing offices with other professionals, such as increased exposure to bar grievances or malpractice claims, disqualification motions, and imputed knowledge of confidential communications.

What Our Policyholders Are Saying
Mr. Fraim and the inside counsel were cordial and efficient. My inquiries were answered promptly and the staff was very knowledgeable and straight forward.
OAMIC sticks by its insureds more than any other malpractice carrier I have heard of – and I experienced that commitment firsthand. That peace of mind is priceless. I will never leave OAMIC.
I am very satisfied with the handling of our claim. Communication was first rate. I thought the analysis and resolution of the claim was excellent. I received good counsel about the issues.
You guys are the best of the best. I could not have made it through this mess without your kind assistance.
I was with a big, national company that offered cheap rates and made a lot of promises. But, after a few months, I realized none of those promises held true. I switched back to OAMIC and am so glad I did. That was a mistake I will not make again!
I greatly appreciate the prompt and professional way OAMIC dealt with my claim. OAMIC made the situation as painless as such a situation could be.
Although I felt wronged, I was very anxious after my former client sued me. For me, I needed to move on, and the way you handled the claim allowed me to do so.
This was a difficult time for me and I lost many nights of sleep agonizing over error. OAMIC’s handling of the claim was superb, as was the work of outside counsel. Top notch. I was ‘in the loop’ at all times. Thanks so much for your excellent work. I am OAMIC for life.
I had a very frivolous lawsuit filed against me, and OAMIC and my attorney were fantastic. I have discouraged others from straying from OAMIC based on the handling of my claim.
