May 20, 2024 (Las Vegas, NV) – In honor of Older Americans Month, the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program (SLP) reaffirms its commitment to supporting and empowering seniors aged 60 and older in Southern Nevada and surrounding areas. Throughout the month of May and beyond, SLP is dedicated to providing vital legal assistance and resources to ensure the well-being and rights of older adults in our community.

Since 1978, SLP has been a beacon of support for seniors, offering comprehensive legal services at no cost to eligible individuals. The program operates in Southern Nevada, including Clark, Nye, Esmeralda, and Lincoln Counties, catering to the unique legal needs of our senior population.

SLP’s mission is to raise awareness and expand access to senior legal assistance through these significant initiatives:

  1. Raising and Expanding Senior Legal Assistance Awareness: SLP’s experienced professional staff is committed to assisting seniors with a wide range of legal issues, such as assisting with basic estate planning/Power of Attorney Health Care, evictions, elder abuse/exploitation and help with scams/fraud/ID theft, merchant disputes, public entitlements, and more. They continue to advocate for their rights and well-being.
  1. Providing Resources to Serve Seniors: SLP conducts legal clinics and educational workshops to empower seniors with knowledge about their legal rights. If direct assistance cannot be provided, SLP connects seniors with other relevant resources.
  1. Staying Engaged in the Senior Community: SLP actively engages with the senior community through volunteer efforts. SLP is currently recruiting pro bono English and Spanish-speaking attorneys to increase our capacity to serve at-risk older adults and ensure language accessibility as well as cultural sensitivity.

Over the past year, SLP has expanded its reach and achieved significant milestones, successfully increasing outreach efforts and providing legal assistance to a growing number of seniors in need. SLP was able to serve 2,500 seniors with direct legal assistance in 2023, delivering a 20 percent increase over 2022. The program has successfully increased outreach efforts, providing legal assistance to a growing number of seniors in need. Additionally, SLP recently announced that William Voy has joined the organization as Director of its Pro Bono Program. With over 35 years of legal experience and a distinguished career as a Family Court Judge for over 20 years, William Voy brings a wealth of expertise and dedication to helping vulnerable seniors in his new role at SLP. “At SLP, we are dedicated to supporting our seniors and advocating for their rights. Older Americans Month is an opportunity for us to celebrate the invaluable contributions of seniors while reaffirming our commitment to providing them with the legal support they deserve” said Mr. Voy.

SLP also continues to serve the diverse needs of the senior community. The program aims to fulfill its mission of empowering seniors through no-cost legal services by hosting workshops in both English and Spanish focused on Fundamentals of Estate Planning/Power of Attorney Health Care. The free workshops in English are held every Tuesday and Wednesday, and the next Spanish workshop will be held on June 26th at 9:30am at 7690 W. Sahara Ave. Las Vegas, Nevada 89117. Seniors ages 60+ will be able to review and discuss questions regarding their estate planning and Power of Attorney Health Care with bilingual and expert pro-bono attorneys.
