When informed of this year’s record attendance of 263 attorneys, John Simon was delighted. “To all of the many lawyers who thanked us for hosting the 2021 Trial Practices Seminar, I’d like to say ‘Thank you.’” In addition to providing high-quality legal education every year since 2005, every dollar that attorneys pay to attend the Simon Law Firm seminar is donated directly to Legal Services of Eastern Missouri to further its critically important mission: https://lsem.org/about/
Since 1956, we have provided free legal help for more than 1 million low-income individuals/families with civil issues impacting housing, family law, public benefits, consumer fraud, healthcare, children’s well-being, special education and relief from domestic violence. In recent years, services have expanded to address the specific needs of immigrant and refugee families, veterans, community economic development and small-business and minority entrepreneurs. Legal Services now has four offices – St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Hannibal and Union – that serve 21 Missouri counties from the Iowa border to Potosi.
To all who attended, please know that your support of the LSEM mission is deeply appreciated by LSEM:
To the Simon Law Firm:
