Contesting evictions. Preventing foreclosures. Representing victims of domestic violence. Obtaining health care benefits. Pursuing Medicaid appeals. Assisting immigrants. All these and many more are the services Legal Aid lawyers and staff provide to the low-income residents of western Missouri.
And these are the reasons Cassy and I are enthusiastic supporters of Legal Aid. It is meeting the most basic legal needs of people who cannot afford an attorney to assist them. Legal Aid provides a lifeline for them, and we are privileged to help.
