What we do
NLS Has Developed Numerous Law Projects to Help Focus on Specific Needs
Nevada Legal Services can help with a variety of legal issues. We primarily assist with housing cases where tenants are facing eviction or termination of their subsidized housing, where individuals and families are applying for and are denied or terminated from SNAP, TANF, or other government benefits, denials of Unemployment Benefits and Pandemic Unemployment Assistance, sealing criminal and eviction records, and more. If you are in need of legal assistance, visit our Online Intake portal by clicking the link above. Scroll down to learn more about our other projects.
