LAUGHLIN — Free legal advice for Laughlin residents will be available once a month, starting today, with the “Ask-A-Lawyer” program for rural Nevadans.

The legal seminars will run from 9 a.m. to noon. Legal advice will cover civil law, not criminal law, and comes in 15-minute individual sessions.

Emphasis will be on consumer issues and landlord/tenant disputes.

The sessions are free and open to all Nevada residents. They will be held at the Clark County Regional Government Center, 101 Civic Way. 

Walk-ins are welcome; no appointments are necessary. Assistance is on a first-come, first-served basis.

“If you qualify for our services, an attorney from Nevada Legal Services will meet with you to discuss your legal issue,” said literature about the program. “Depending on the nature of your case, our attorney will either provide legal advice, help direct you to appropriate resources or organizations, or propose that Nevada Legal Services directly represent you as a client.” 

Dates are today, Feb. 19, March 18, April 15, May 20 and June 17.
