Case Number: 2021-006927 (Urgent) (Pending Placement)


A retired 79-year-old widow needs assistance against an auto repair shop on breach of contract related claims. She owns a 1999 Jeep Wrangler. She took the Jeep to the opposing party (OP) regarding the front end rattling and a leaking oil pan in August 2020. There was no estimate given. She paid $2,700 up front for the work, but later received a call from OP that she needed additional parts and work done for the back end of her vehicle. Again, she was not provided with an estimate but paid an additional $2,150 for a total of $4,850 paid. About 3 weeks later, she picked up the vehicle from OP. As she drove off, the vehicle made a grinding noise, the front wheels where falling off, and the car would not drive above 35 mph. The client brought the vehicle back to OP but they refused to listen to her or acknowledge any error. On the same day, she took the Jeep to another shop for a second opinion. She was provided with a diagnostic and estimate. She was informed that OP damaged the transmission and shocks and that they had crossed-threaded all the lug nuts to the wheel studs. She paid an additional $1,367.85 to the second mechanic for damages caused by OP. As a result, this client seeks representation to sue for out-of-pocket expenses. She has already sent a demand letter to OP, who has again ignored her. There is no pending case at this time.

A 13-year-old girl and a 9-year-old girl came into DFS care on March 3, 2020. Both girls were living with the 13-year-old’s guardians who are the 9-year-old’s adopted parents. They were removed from the home after they reported physical and emotional abuse by the adults, including excessive punishment and physical abuse.

A 16-year-old boy and his younger siblings were removed from their home in February 2020 due to being neglected by both parents, domestic violence between their dad and his girlfriend, and environmental neglect. Since entering care the placement issues have been ongoing. This teenager ran away from the initial placement from the very beginning, and was never brought back in care longer than a few days, until August 2021. It’s suspected that he ran to be with his natural father at his home, but was then kicked out of that home when his younger sister ran away to the home and there was conflict between them. All of the kids have special educational, therapeutic, and behavioral needs. In particular, this teenager struggles with depression and is chronically suicidal and was recently hospitalized as a result. He appears to want full termination of his parents’ rights and would rather age out in foster care. The mother has not been raising the kids and does not maintain contact consistently with them outside of a birthday call. Her rights are pending termination and a prove up was done as she is not participating in the court process. The dad however was at least trying to engage in services recently, but is just not showing true behavioral change. This 16-year-old kid is in need of an attorney to represent his wishes and legal rights as to permanency, placement, and visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place.

This 14-year-old teenage girl and her siblings were removed in February 2020 due to being neglected by both parents, domestic violence between their dad and his girlfriend, and environmental neglect. Since entering care the placement issues have been ongoing. She was placed in a foster home with her younger siblings but then she was disrupted from the home because of her behaviors and encouraging the boys to runaway with her. She spent a long time on Child Haven’s campus before being placed in St. Jude’s. She was then placed with her younger brothers in a foster home in May 2021 but ran way and has not returned to care yet. It’s suspected that she ran to their dad’s home. All of the kids have special educational, therapeutic, and behavioral needs. There is a Termination of Parental Rights petition against dad and the DA plans to move forward, but she would like to reunify with her dad. Their mother has not been raising the kids and does not maintain contact consistently with them outside of a birthday call. Her rights are pending termination and a prove up was done as she is not participating in the court process. The dad however was at least trying to engage in services recently, but is just not showing true behavioral change.

Children, now 11 years old and 13 years old, were placed under a guardianship with their maternal grandmother in 2012. Their natural parents are now each trying to terminate the guardianship and get the kids back. The court ordered DFS to do a report as is required under NRS 432B to assess the parents. There was some confusion and DFS failed to do the report the first time so the matter was continued for them to complete their report. These children need an attorney to to review the file, talk to CPS, and talk to the kids about whether they want to go back with natural parents or stay with their grandmother and why. After doing this, the attorney will represent their wishes and legal rights at the hearing on 11/8.
