“Capes Sokol has a long tradition of providing free or discounted legal services to economically disadvantaged people and the institutions that serve them. One-way Sarah J. Luem and Alexandra L. Hemphill model the firm’s altruistic culture through their volunteer work at the Grace Hill Legal Clinic. Capes Sokol also supports Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (“LSEM”) by providing annual funding, event sponsorship and other key support.

In 2016, Luem was inspired to collaborate with Legal Services of Eastern Missouri (LSEM) to create an opportunity for Capes Sokol’s transactional attorneys to volunteer in a way that best utilized their skills and knowledge. As a result of these efforts, Capes Sokol now staffs a monthly legal clinic at the Grace Hill Women’s Business Center. Luem, Hemphill and other attorneys from the firm provide aspiring entrepreneurs with legal advice to help them launch and operate their businesses, with a focus on minority and female entrepreneurs.
