“Since its establishment as a not-for-profit organization, LAWMo has maintained and followed the same mission: to provide the highest quality legal services to individuals, families and groups faced with economic barriers in obtaining civil legal representation. Services are available to those living below the poverty level in a 40 county area in western Missouri. However, due to limited funding, LAWMo must set strict priorities for the type of cases it can accept. Priority is given to cases involving housing, employment, domestic abuse, immigration, consumer problems and public benefits. LAWMo does not accept fee-generating cases. Clients are not charged attorney fees but are required to pay court costs and filing fees when applicable.”
