What We Do

We provide free legal assistance to eligible clients.  We are a statewide, nonprofit public interest law firm funded by grants from the Legal Services Corporation, the Nevada Bar Foundation, and other state, federal, and private grants.  Our practice is civil law and we do not handle criminal law cases. Eligibility usually depends on your income level. Contact us if you need help. There may always be a grant under which we can help you!
