Jared Manse’s PhD in molecular microbiology of medicine wasn’t going to help this client. Nor was Steve Shredl’s experience with state and national class actions. Their client just wanted her family not to be unjustly thrown out onto the street.
Through Legal Services of Eastern Missouri’s Housing Law Program, Jared and Steve represented the St. Louis woman who only weeks after paying an exorbitant deposit on an apartment in South City found a condemnation notice on the front of her building.
As volunteer attorneys, they were able to negotiate with the property owner’s attorney to secure an agreeable resolution, including most of her deposit and more time to find a new home.
Both attorneys say due credit must be given to Mike Nepple for his supervision and guidance during the entire process.
For their pro bono efforts, Jared and Steve have been named Volunteer Lawyers of the Month by the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis’s Pro Bono Challenge. Read the whole story from this month’s issue of the St. Louis Lawyer.
