Effectuating Property Transfer to Children After Mother's Passing Through Urban League Pro Bono Legal Intake Clinic

St. Louis, MO

Through Husch Blackwell’s partnership with the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis, we are changing how some of the historically excluded populations in our community access attorneys and the legal system. Husch Blackwell’s Pro Bono Legal Intake Clinic demonstrates our commitment to protecting our clients' rights by connecting attorneys to individuals in need of legal services, but who might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage these services.

Case overview

Jane Doe’s mother passed away and left behind a house. It was her mother’s wish to have the house transferred to Jane Doe and her three siblings upon their mother’s death. Jane Doe needed assistance effectuating the transfer of the house to her and her siblings.

How Husch Blackwell helped

Jane Doe met with Husch Blackwell attorneys through the firm’s Pro Bono Legal Intake Clinic at the Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis. After engaging Doe, the attorney team of Katesha Long and Shaunessy Carr worked to transfer Jane Doe’s late mother’s house to Doe and her siblings by drafting the transfer documents and recording the same in the clerk and recorder’s office.
