A few words

About Us

What we're all about...

Mission Statement

Providing and facilitating access to justice in Clark County for low-income individuals and marginalized communities through advocacy and civil legal services.

What This Means

Low income clients with criminal matters are guaranteed public defenders if they cannot afford an attorney.

The same is not true for clients experiencing civil legal issues (like divorce, custody, or evictions). We aim to uphold the purpose of the law by empowering low income clients to truly utilize the justice system effectively.


The nature and depth of our work has grown over the years, but our priority continues to be ensuring equitable access to justice for everyone in our community.

Learn More About Our Services

We work hard to meet the need wherever we identify a gap. Check out how we’re facilitating access to justice through our direct services and partnerships with other community organizations.
