Commissioner Co-Hosting Ask-a-Lawyer, Free Legal Advice for Residents

Clark County residents with legal questions may speak to an attorney for free during the upcoming Ask-a-Lawyer event being co-sponsored by Commission Chairman Marilyn Kirkpatrick.

The Ask-a-Lawyer consultations will be done over the telephone from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11. To participate, residents must register in advance online through www.lacsn.org/ask.

“Most of us do not have a lot of experience dealing with the courts or even basic legal issues,” Chairman Kirkpatrick said. “This event gives residents the opportunity to speak directly with experienced attorneys to get advice and guidance on everything from evictions and unemployment insurance, to wills and family trusts.”

Ask-a-Lawyer is being done in partnership with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, and with the support of Nevada Legal Services, the Clark County Public Defender's Office and the UNLV Immigration Clinic.

The issues attorneys will be able to assist with include immigration, criminal defense, wills and trusts, tenant rights, criminal record sealing, family law and debt and bankruptcy.
