Molly Rosenblum of Rosenblum Law Firm

Molly Rosenblum has been practicing law in Nevada since 2002. She opened a solo practice in 2007 with a focus in family law and personal injury. She received her undergraduate degree in Business from the University of Nevada, Reno and her law degree from the William Boyd School of Law.

Molly began volunteering with Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada in 2011. She has accepted 14 pro bono cases in a range of areas, including landlord/tenant, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, divorce and custody. Molly also participates in our Family Law Ask-A-Lawyer program.

In June, 2016 when the Pro Bono Project had a waiting list of more than 100 clients, Molly stepped up and agreed to take eight new pro bono family law cases. Although, some of those cases included Spanish speaking clients it did not stop her from taking them. Molly, isn’t personally proficient in Spanish, however, she sought out the assistance of other colleagues to work with her on the Spanish speaking cases.

When we asked Molly why she does pro bono work, she responded that the practice of law has been good to her and it is a privilege to her to give back to the community where she grew up. She finds Legal Aid Center’s work with children and families so inspiring and says there is no greater feeling than helping someone who really needs you..

In regard to a memorable pro bono client Molly recalled her current child abuse and neglect case. Molly has been representing two young boys for almost three years and has watched them grow into strong, resilient young men. She continues to advocate in finding a family they can call their own. Molly says, “The work done by CAP attorneys is nothing short of AMAZING and while I only have this 1 CAP case, it has been the most rewarding case for me in my entire 14 years of practice.”

For her commitment to representing clients, and for the time she has dedicated to the Ask-A-Lawyer program, we honor Molly Rosenblum as the October Pro Bono Volunteer of the Month.
