Southern Nevada Senior Law Program

 What is the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program (SNSLP)?

SNSLP was founded in 1978 under the 1965 Title III Older Americans Act.  Originally sponsored by the City of Las Vegas, SNSLP is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It is partially funded by grants from the Nevada Aging and Disability Services Division, the Nevada Law Foundation, and the State Bar of Nevada, along with generous community contributions. While the services we provide are free, we rely upon support from public and private donations. Help us help more seniors, if you are able.

Those of us at SNSLP would like to congratulate this year’s honorees of the 10th Annual Miriam Shearing Gala: Judge Gloria Sturman and Judge Nancy Allf. Please join us and the Southern Nevada Association of Women Attorneys Foundation (SNAWAF) in recognizing female attorneys “for their accomplishments and contributions to the advancement of women in the Nevada legal community” on September 14th. All proceeds go directly to SNAWAF’s scholarship fund, which provides scholarships for female law students at the UNLV Boyd School of Law.

Senior Advocates Pro Bono Program

December 9, 2021 marked the second in a series of pro bono sign-a-thons that the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program (SNSLP) has organized to kick off their new Senior Advocates Pro Bono program. Celebrating tremendous success thanks to the 11 pro bono attorneys (Steve Parsons, James Leavitt, April Anstett, Judge William Potter, Amy Smith, Dawn Davis, Jerome Blut, Abigail Pace, Christi Dupont, Jennifer Leonescu, and Christian Ogata) and our three invaluable volunteers (Tiffani Hara, Margaret Foster, Veronica Currie) who participated in finalizing estate planning documents for 42 grateful SNSLP clients, WOW!

*Read more about our Senior Advocates Pro Bono Program in the December issue of Communique which features the attorneys and volunteers who participated in our inaugural sign-a-thon event.

A win-win for both the Southern Nevada Senior Law Program and the participating attorneys, is approval by the Nevada State Bar of SNSLP as a provider of CLE.

Attorney volunteers are able to take advantage of ongoing additional free CLE opportunities through SNSLP – earning 1 CLE hour for every 3 hours of uncompensated pro bono service.

Many thanks for all the information regarding my overpayment dilemma with social security. The forms you sent are very helpful. I am grateful that you sent me two copies because I needed a second copy due to my forgetting my expenses. I couldn’t see why I had no (or very little) money after I paid my rent. This is very helpful to have access to attorneys who are specific Elder Law Attorneys. I am impressed with the way you handled my case quickly and professionally. Thank you very much!
