While the staff at Nevada Legal Services (NLS) provides free assistance to low income Nevadans, the number of requests for its assistance far surpasses the size of its staff. Every year the number of potential clients calling its offices increases while the size of its staff remains largely the same. The provision of legal assistance to people in need is increasingly dependent on the involvement of volunteer attorneys.

NLS is currently in the process of expanding our Pro Bono Program and need all the volunteers we can get to increase our current panel. In addition to directly assisting clients by taking a case, volunteers can also contribute in a variety of ways. Attorneys can co-counsel with the staff at NLS, answer calls on its Senior Helpline, and volunteer time at its Tenant's Rights Center.

NLS currently has opportunities for attorneys and non-attorneys in all of its offices. To join the Pro Bono panel, please contact Renee Kelly, Pro Bono Coordiantor, at (775) 284-3491.
