Seminar to Benefit Legal Services of Eastern Missouri

In 2005, The Simon Law Firm, P.C. founded a trial practice seminar designed to do two things. First, provide ongoing education for local attorneys. Second, we wanted this seminar to raise money for Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (LSEM). Since its inception, the seminar has grown dramatically, regularly attracting more than 200 attendees. Lectures are given by attorneys and judges recognized as experts in their fields on a diverse range of topics. Every dollar earned by the seminar is donated directly to LSEM. Since the launch of this project we have raised over $415,000.00!
