Finding an Attorney in Missouri

If you need to find an attorney in Missouri then consider using one of the three Lawyer Referral Services in the state when you begin your search for a local and qualified attorney. These services provide an alternative to using a phone book, an internet search or a commercial attorney directory online.

The Missouri Bar manages Lawyer Search Service. Use the LawyerSearch tool to search for a lawyer in Missouri by practice or location (city or county). The LawyerSearch tool is a free feature that helps the public find a list of lawyers who have indicated that they are accepting new clients in various areas of the law.

The "Lawyer Directory" feature maintained by the Missouri Bar allows the public to find out whether a lawyer is in good standing with the Supreme Court of Missouri. Every lawyer in Missouri who is in good standing with the Supreme Court of Missouri is included in the Official Missouri Directory of Lawyers. Search by the lawyer’s name, city, and bar number. 

Missouri.FreeLegalAnswers.org is a free service for low-income Missouri residents who think they cannot afford a lawyer to get answers about non-criminal problems from volunteer lawyers. The question-and-answer website lets the public ask specific legal questions about civil legal issue and volunteer lawyers provide written answers.
