LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Dozens of attorneys will offer Southern Nevadans free legal consultations in honor of National Law Day on May 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Doolittle Community Center.

Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, who is hosting the 8th annual Ask-A-Lawyer event, expects more than 100 to attend. The free event is open to the public. Pre-registration is recommended but walk ins are still welcome. To register, visit lacsn.org/aalevent or call 702-386-1070, ext. 1421 for English, or ext. 1436 for Spanish.

Nevada Legal Services, Southern Nevada Senior Law Program, Clark County Public Defender’s Office and the William S. Boyd School of Law Tax Clinic will also be on hand to answer questions about their services, public benefits, housing, unemployment, estate planning, probate, and senior health issues.

Last year alone, more than 159 issues were addressed through the Ask-A-Lawyer National Law Day event. Some of the most common topics involve family law, immigration, consumer law, bankruptcy, foreclosure, Social Security, special education, senior health care, temporary protection orders, immigration, and children’s rights.

National Law Day provides an opportunity to understand how law and the legal process protect liberty and strive to achieve justice. This is the eighth year Legal Aid Center will host Ask-A-Lawyer.
