Pro Bono week offers legal advice locally
Carson City will be the site of two events to help people with legal issues later this month, which is when cooperating organizations statewide join in a National Pro Bono Celebration.
Beginning Saturday and running through Oct. 25, the events across Nevada will help people seeking guidance on civil matters that include such things as family law, foreclosure, bankruptcy, debt collection, employment immigration, wills and estates, or other issues.
Organizations involved are the Nevada Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission, the State Bar of Nevada, volunteer lawyers and community partners.
The Carson City events include a free legal aid fair on Saturday at the city’s Community Center, which is from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m., and an ask-a-lawyer and self help clinic, which is set for Thursday, Oct. 23, at the Nevada Supreme Court Law Library from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Also in the area is a Gardnerville ask-a-lawyer/self help clinic on Friday, Oct. 24. It is at the Douglas County Social Services Office from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
