Neighborhood Justice Center is a legal clinic based at St. Francis Xavier that, through volunteer attorneys, provides free legal services to those who cannot afford to pay. Our clinic has been approved by the Missouri Bar Assn.for its Pro Bono Legal Program but we are an independent legal clinic established as a Not-For-Profit Corporation registered with the Missouri Secretary of State.  We generally draw our clients from the food pantries or offices at SFX and St. Therese Little Flower Parish but also receive referrals from other sources such as the Don Bosco Center.  We are seeking additional volunteer attorneys and a part-time volunteer with secretarial experience so that we can expand our services.  If interested, please contact Tom Bradshaw at 816-898-3006
