WHAT WE DO
We provide advice and some full representation to clients in the process of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. We do not provide services for Chapter 11 or 13.
We partner with the Division of Child Support and Child Protective Services to guide parents through a dependency case. This can be a result of children being removed from the home for suspicion of abuse or neglect.
We partner with the YWCA SafeChoice Domestic Violence program to provide legal service for victims of domestic violence. Anyone who has experienced domestic violence and now has legal issues as a result can meet with a specially trained attorney in a safe space.
We provide advice and limited full representation to clients with family law needs. These include divorce, custody, adoption, non-parental custody and guardianship.
General Law includes all areas of civil (not criminal) legal needs that don't fit into another category. This may be help with contracts, avoiding bankruptcy, or even discrimination practices.
We work with social service organizations to bring legal aid directly to people experiencing homelessness. This may be in the form of a walk-in advice clinic or providing full representation on legal issues specific to this client population.
Homeless Court allows us to work directly with Clark County District Court to convert legal fines to community service. The client must be actively experiencing housing instability to qualify. In this program, we match the client with a case manager and facilitate their journey through the program.
Housing Justice Project
Housing Justice cases include landlord/tenant disputes, evictions, tenant discrimination, or any issue that prevents a client from being safely and fairly housed. Our attorneys provide advice in our office, then accompany clients, if necessary, to the unlawful detainer (eviction) docket.
