What is the Pro Se Assistance Program?

The Pro Se Assistance Program ("PSAP") is a free legal clinic, located at the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse in St. Louis, designed to help individuals without an attorney to answer legal questions about bankruptcy, including how bankruptcy may be used to help prevent foreclosure. The PSAP provides debtors with an opportunity to meet with a volunteer private attorney for a free 30-minute consultation.
