Speak With an Attorney for Free

PRO SE ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

The St. Louis Bankruptcy Pro Se Assistance Program ("PSAP") is a free legal clinic designed to help individuals without an attorney answer legal questions about bankruptcy, including how bankruptcy may be used to help prevent foreclosure. The PSAP provides self-represented (a.k.a, pro se) debtors with an opportunity to meet with a volunteer private attorney for a free 30-minute consultation. The PSAP volunteers cannot provide an attorney to complete your paperwork for you or represent you.

If you need legal representation services after your 30-minute consultation, please call (toll-free) 1-844-758-4059 for a referral to a qualified bankruptcy attorney. Referred attorneys may charge fees for their services. The PSAP is a service of the Saint Louis Bar Foundation with support from The Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis and grant funding from the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation and the Missouri Lawyer Trust Account Foundation. The PSAP is not affiliated or related to the United States Bankruptcy Court.

What should I bring to my meeting?

If you are thinking about filing a bankruptcy case, but have not yet filed your case, you should gather any letters, papers or documentation you think are relevant to the questions you are planning to ask the attorney. Review those documents before meeting with the attorney. If you have already filed your bankruptcy case, be sure to have all the documents relevant to filing of your case and your bankruptcy case number available for your meeting. You are not required to have any documentation available for your meeting. However, your 30-minute meeting will be best utilized if you have your information readily available.
