Volunteers Sought for Will-A-Thon on June 12, 2024

Nevada lawyers are needed to provide pro bono and help some of our community’s more vulnerable citizens.

The CCBA’s Community Service Committee is partnering with the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program (SNLSP) to organize Nevada lawyers to provide pro bono and help some of our community’s more vulnerable citizens.

Will-a-Thon Event to Help Senior Citizens

  • When: Wednesday, June 12, 2024, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM
  • Where: East Las Vegas Community Center, 250 N. Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89101
  • What: The Will-a-Thon will only involve an Interview to assess Client needs, gather information, and provide basic Estate Planning guidance as needed. Clients will be pre-registered and scheduled for 1-hour appointments with the volunteer attorneys. Each attorney will have 3 interview appointments total. Subsequently, the SNSLP staff will draft the documents from the information gathered at the Will-a-Thon and oversee the signing of the Wills in our office on an appointment basis with the Clients at a later date. There will not be any drafting or finalization of documents at the Will-a-Thon event. Goal is 12 volunteer attorneys and 36 senior clients for three 1-Hour appointments per attorney, scheduled by the senior center staff.
