Legal Services of Eastern Missouri CLE

I love helping Legal Services of Missouri as a Board Member.

We just finished up an amazing 3 hour CLE on June 30th. It was great getting to spend the day with LSEM and 200 of Eastern Missouri's brightest legal minds to discuss "Everything Ethics in Estates", "Fiduciary Income Tax Strategies for IRAs", and "The Latest & Greatest in Elder Law."

Thank you everyone who attended, and helped make it one of our best CLEs yet!

One of the newest things we are doing is our Legacy Giving Initiative. The brainchild of Maggie Probert and Dan Glaser (with a lot of rowing done by Louisa Gregory), its adding planned giving scope to LSEM's development tools. I chair the committee developing it.

I have had a blast bringing my organization and marketing skills to this project. I think it safeguards the future of LSEM and the people LSEM serves.

Lawyers develop their own interests and causes they support, but one thing universal is support for LSEM, its mission and its clientele.

Make a Promise to Support the Future of Justice

LSEM provides free civil legal assistance, advice and information for low-income citizens, and the elderly in 21 eastern Missouri counties.

You too can help ensure at-risk families actually realize the promise of access to justice through LSEM's Legacy Giving Initiative. With your support, we will:

  • Reduce the unmet legal needs of the disenfranchised
  • expand access to services, especially in under-served communities;
  • advance positive systemic change and societal equity
  • provide trauma-responsive, holistic legal services
  • support the goal that justice can be achieved through fair and equitable access to the civil legal system, today and into the future.

You can help support LSEM's mission through a variety of Planned giving options including:

  • Wills and Bequests
  • Retirement funds
  • Life Insurance policies

Our community needs all of us, NOW and for the Future. With your Legacy gift, together we will protect the promise of equal access to justice for all.
