Missouri Bar TV, radio spots showcase how lawyers help their clients

People love to tell jokes about lawyers, but the truth is, Missourians need lawyers to help find solutions to legal concerns and navigate the legal system. 

Through “My Missouri Lawyer,” The Missouri Bar’s 2022-23 Leadership Academy class demonstrates just how much lawyers can help those they represent. The project consists of public service announcements spotlighting two real, inspirational client stories. 

“The PSAs created for ‘My Missouri Lawyer’ represent the diverse ways that our Leadership Academy class and lawyers in Missouri are helping our citizens,” said Erin Lueker, a member of the 2022-23 Leadership Academy class. “We hope this project helps connect people with services and acknowledges the thousands of lawyers dedicated to their communities.” 

The project, presented to The Missouri Bar Board of Governors at its Annual Meeting held Sept. 13 in Kansas City, holds a special place in the hearts of the Leadership Academy class as they continue to strive to provide their clients with the best service and improve access to justice.  

“It means a great deal that The Missouri Bar has a focus on showing the public that access to justice is paramount to our profession,” said Keegan Tinney, a member of the 2022-23 Leadership Academy class.

Each Leadership Academy class is comprised of a dozen lawyers recently admitted to the bar who have already shown leadership qualities within their communities. Each class is tasked with developing and launching a public service project. “My Missouri Lawyer” is the 2022-23 Leadership Academy class’s public service project.
