Seniors Can Meet With A Local Attorney For Free At Upcoming “Local Attorneys Working For Seniors” Event
Space Is Limited; Participants Will Be Seen On A First Come, First Served Basis

 

Area seniors can meet with a local attorney for free for 15 minutes at the upcoming “Local Attorneys Working for Seniors” event, which is being paid for by a grant from the Nevada State Bar. The event is planned for 1 to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 26, and will take place at the East Las Vegas Community/Senior Center, located at 250 N. Eastern Ave.

Space is limited, and participants will be seen on a first come, first served basis.  Participants must live in Clark County and be 60 years of age or older to qualify to see an attorney. Light refreshments will be served.

The event is being held in recognition of National Pro Bono Week, an annual event that is dedicated to finding more attorneys willing to accept cases without compensation. 

The Senior Citizens Law Project was founded in 1978 under the 1965 Title III Older Americans Act and has been sponsored by the city of Las Vegas since its inception. It is partially funded by grants from the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division, the Nevada Law Foundation, the State Bar of Nevada and the Department of Justice. During the last 30 years, more than 110,000 seniors living in Clark County have been assisted through the program.

Additional information on the Senior Citizens Law Project can be found at http://www.lasvegasnevada.gov/sclp or by calling 229-6596.
