Legal Services of Southern Missouri (LSSM) is one of four legal services organizations in Missouri funded primarily by the Legal Services Corporation (LSC). LSC is a private, not-for-profit corporation created by an Act of Congress to ensure low-income people have equal access to the courts nationwide.
LSSM receives financial assistance from the following sources: Legal Services Corporation, State of Missouri, Missouri Lawyer Trust Account Foundation, and local area agencies on aging. However, without the support of local private lawyers, LSSM would be unable to provide high-quality legal representation to the poor.
LSSM is not a government agency, but rather a not-for-profit organization serving only the low-income and elderly in forty-three counties across southern Missouri. LSSM never charges a fee to a client.
Our program in southern Missouri is working to expand services to meet the legal needs of children, elderly, victims of abuse, and the disabled. LSSM’s core legal services provided to the low-income and elderly are domestic/sexual violence, family, consumer, housing, public benefits and elder law.
