A large number of our staff have worked at OAMIC for 10+ and even 20+ years. Read below to learn a little more about us.
A Word from the President
For nearly 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.
