To provide access to justice for low income individuals by facilitating civil legal services through volunteer attorneys.
WHAT WE DO
The U.S. Constitution guarantees that people who cannot afford an attorney in a criminal case may be appointed one. Unfortunately, this guarantee does not exist for legal assistance in civil cases.
Civil legal issues include those related to family law (divorce, custody, guardianship), domestic violence, landlord-tenant disputes, overwhelming debt and bankruptcy, consumer fraud, veteran’s issues, and those faced by seniors or people living with a disability.
Founded in 1990, Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program (CCVLP) provides legal aid to low income members of our community.
We do this through the exclusive use of volunteer attorneys and with the support of funding from our community.
