A Word from the President

Phil Fraim

For more than 40 years, OAMIC has stood next to Oklahoma attorneys through both good times and bad. I have had the honor of serving as President and CEO of this organization since 1993. The number one thing that sets OAMIC apart from other providers is our ability to cultivate unique relationships with our members. This comes from being a mutual company, because our insureds are also owners. It also comes from being local. We know the Oklahoma legal landscape better than anyone else. And we know you. When you need us, we’re here. There’s no call center. There’s no automated answering service. It’s us. Oklahomans serving Oklahomans.

Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to serve you. We look forward to many more years together. 


Phil has been at OAMIC since 1989 and has served as president and CEO since 1993. He is past-president of the National Association of Bar Related Insurance Companies (NABRICO) and currently serves as secretary of the organization. He also serves as secretary of the Bar Plan Surety & Fidelity Company, is a board member of the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (NAMIC), and is also a member of the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS). Phil is an alumnus of University of Central Oklahoma and is a trustee of the Edmond Economic Development Authority.
