The Pro Bono Project offers the unique opportunity to positively impact the lives of low-income individuals in Southern Nevada. The clients listed below have been accepted by our program and are currently on our waiting list for pro bono representation. Clients have been prescreened for financial income eligibility and their cases have been selected based on a number of factors, including the merits of their case, the availability of volunteers, and the reasonableness of the client.
If you would like to take a pro bono case or request additional information, please email Michael Wendlberger at (MWendlberger@lacsn.org) or Cindy Morales Kerben (firstname.lastname@example.org).
AFGHAN ASYLUM PROJECT: 200 Afghan families will be settling into life in Nevada and are in need of representation in their asylum cases. If you are interested in taking an asylum case for an Afghan family, please email email@example.com. Sample pleadings, mentors, and trainings will be available throughout the process!
SUMMARY EVICTION CASES: Thousands of people in Clark County face eviction without your help. Legal Aid Center is looking for volunteer attorneys willing to take a few summary eviction cases. Eviction cases are quick and relatively easy (for an attorney). Review the complaint/tenant answer, ensure the client applies for CHAPS (financial assistance), attend mediation, and possibly a hearing via BlueJeans.
Because of the summary nature of these cases, they will not appear on the case list. If you are interested in taking an eviction case or two, please contact Michael Wendlberger at firstname.lastname@example.org. Legal Aid Center will provide a free CLE and pair you with a mentor to answer any of your questions.
With your help, we can keep Nevada housed.
