TLC Superheroes to the Rescue!
Tulsa-area attorneys have unleashed their legal super powers for some of Tulsa’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens. As volunteers for Tulsa Lawyers for Children (TLC), these TLC Superheroes are using their law degrees to speak for abused and neglected children.
In Tulsa County, one in every 25 children suffers from some form of abuse or neglect.
In fact, the Tulsa Police Department reports a 20% increase in child abuse
and neglect over the past five years (Tulsa World, 2014).
Thankfully, TLC Superheroes fight to ensure abused and neglected children have a champion who represents their best interests in a deprived proceeding. Today, 90 TLC volunteers represent 306 children in 187 cases, but the need for TLC Superheroes to demonstrate their legal super powers continues to grow.
