Congratulations to all of our 2021 Awardees at our annual
Champions of Justice
Extraordinary volunteers are formally recognized with a special award at the Champions of Justice luncheons. The Annual Champions of Justice luncheons are held once a year in Reno for the North, Las Vegas for the South, and Elko for the Rural Counties. At each of these ceremonies, distinguished political, judicial, and community service leaders are invited to meet and congratulate our outstanding Pro Bono Attorneys and Law Firms. We also recognize a Champion of Justice, an extraordinary person who exemplifies the mission and goals of Nevada Legal Services and provide access to justice across Nevada.

In 2010 Nevada Legal Services (NLS) created the Champions of Justice Award to give recognition to those who significantly support the cause of Access to Justice for all Nevadans by providing or promoting Pro Bono assistance. The dedication of our awardees today has greatly increased the ability of Nevada Legal Services and our sister organizations to meet the ever-increasing demand for our assistance. NLS is fortunate to have many generous volunteers throughout the state who participate in our Pro Bono programs. The staff of Nevada Legal Services would also like to thank the many individuals and groups that support our organization which allows us to continue to provide legal aid services to our community members.
