Find A Lawyer

The Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association is currently unable to provide direct lawyer referrals or legal advice. If you are in need of an attorney, please pursue one of the following courses of action:

In Missouri:

The Missouri Bar maintains a Legal Resource phone line at 573-636-3635, which contains information about various legal resources available to the public.  
For more information please visit the Missouri Bar website.

If you are unable to afford attorney fees and are seeking legal assistance, please contact Legal Aid Western Missouri at (816)-474-6750. Please be aware that Legal Aid has limited resources and may not be able to accept your case based on circumstances and availability of attorneys.

MissouriLawyersHelp.org contains a free lawyer search feature, a listing of agencies that may provide discounted or pro bono services, as well as information on various legal topics and other public resources.  

Missouri.FreeLegalAnswers.org is a service for low-income Missourians who feel they cannot afford a lawyer to get free legal advice about non-criminal problems from volunteer lawyers.  It is a secure, confidential website where Missouri citizens can ask a lawyer up to three legal questions per year about non-criminal legal matters. Volunteer lawyers licensed to practice law in Missouri respond to submitted questions through the website providing information and basic legal advice without any expectation of long-term representation. No fee is charged to Missouri citizens who are financially eligible to use this service.  

In Kansas:
