Who is the Target Audience? Missouri Residents, and Maybe Others Who Have an Issue Touching on Missouri Law

  • This site is most clearly directed at the people who live or work in Missouri.
  • I have some Questions and Answers below, for those who don’t live or work in Missouri.
  • If you are not in the target audience, you may still call me if you want to speak to a Missouri employment lawyer, but the info on this website is not applicable to you and is not directed at you, because your circumstances are automatically too complicated.

Some info about why I limit my target audience so severely

If you are not in my target audience, then your circumstances are automatically too complicated for this website’s general information articles to deal with.

I have not attempted, in my articles for this website, to anticipate the legal quirks of multi-state legal problems. For example, if you live outside Missouri and work (or worked) in Missouri, or live in Missouri but work (or worked) outside of Missouri, then it’s possible that multiple states’ laws could apply to your case, and multiple different “Circuits” of the federal court system could apply to your case. This is Far and Away too complex for me to cope with in general information employment law articles. I can cope with it in a consultation, because I can ask you questions.

Employment laws are different everywhere. Even the major Federal discrimination laws do not work the same in different states. That’s because each state has different courts, and the different courts interpret the laws differently. In my article Cautioning you not to consider general legal info to be a substitute for legal advice, I talk a lot more about things such as how courts make their decisions, and other things, which will give you some additional background to help you understand why the laws differ in different states, and why my general legal information website only focuses on Missouri.

QUESTIONS and ANSWERS about the target audience

  • Question: I’m not in the target audience for your website, but I want to speak to a Missouri employment lawyer. Can I call your office?

    Answer: Yes, of course you may call me. But this website is still not directed at you, and the info it contains may be inapplicable to you.

  • Question: I worked and lived outside of Missouri, for a Missouri-based employer.

    Answer: This website is not directed at you.

  • Question: What about people who used to work in Missouri, when their cases arose, who have since moved outside Missouri?

    Answer: We might be able to help you.

  • Question: What about people who live in Illinois or Kansas or Oklahoma or Iowa or Arkansas or Kentucky who cross the border and work (or worked) in Missouri?

    Answer: We might be able to help you.
