Every year, our firm gives many hours in legal and support resources on a pro bono basis. Currently we are providing our services as members and/or officers of the Asian American Bar Association of Greater Kansas City (AABAKC), a non-profit organization of judges and lawyers committed to promoting the interests of the Kansas City’s Asian American community, the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association (KCMBA), the largest and oldest bar association in the Kansas City area, and the Legal Aid of Western Missouri, a statewide non-profit organization that provides free (non-criminal) legal services to low income people. In addition, we accept court-appointed assignments on behalf of indigent clients in the areas of child abuse and neglect, and family disputes.
Our attorneys are also active members and patrons of various non-legal, non-profit organizations such as St. Peter’s Parish, St. James Parish, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Greater Kansas City (HCCGKC), and the Broadway Area Community Improvement District (BACID), a political subdivision created and funded by Midtown Kansas City businesses to advocate and execute strategies to make Midtown a great place to live, work, visit and do business.
Bautista LeRoy also founded the Bautista LeRoy Entrepreneur Scholarship, which awards a qualified Asian American attorney with less than five years’ experience and working in Kansas City as a solo practitioner or for a small firm (12 attorneys or less) memberships to AABAKC, KCMBA, and AWL and registration at that year’s Missouri Small/Solo Firm Conference and KCMBA Bench Bar and Boardroom Conference. While the Scholarship is currently provided only in conjunction with AABAKC and KCMBA’s Young Lawyer’s Section, the firm intends to expand the program and offer similar scholarships each year through other specialty bar organizations in Missouri.
We take pride in community involvement and being a part of the Kansas City community.
