Commissioner Tick Segerblom and community partners are inviting residents with legal needs and questions to attend Legal Resource Day on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Cambridge Recreation Center, 3930 Cambridge St., 89119, near Katie Avenue.
The free event will be held in the Cambridge Recreation Center's gymnasium with participation from several local organizations including Legal Aid of Southern Nevada, Foundation for an Independent Tomorrow, Progressive Leadership Alliance and Clark County agencies such as the Law Library and the Public Defender's Office. Three Square in partnership with Lutheran Family Services also will be offering free fresh produce to attendees.
"Many low-income residents do not have a lot of access to legal resources, and this event is being organized to help them address their needs in a safe and community-oriented atmosphere," said Commissioner Segerblom, whose Commission District E includes the Cambridge Recreation Center. "I want to thank the organizations that are offering their services for this event. We encourage residents to join us to learn about resources that are available to them to help them."
Attendees will be able to ask questions of attorneys and partnering organizations and receive referrals to agencies that can assist them with legal matters. Issues that residents can receive guidance on include traffic citations, child support, personal injury, landlord/tenant disputes, warrants, employment discrimination, record sealing and criminal matters.
