Volunteer attorneys are needed to provide consultations to small businesses who have been impacted by Covid-19. Many are struggling financially and do not have funding for legal help. It is for this reason that Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, local volunteer attorneys and law firms, and Clark County are coming together to create the Small Business Legal Advice Project. With this project, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada will match volunteer attorneys with small business owners who have legal questions.
