Southern Nevada Senior Law Program receives pledge from Business Leader Travis Brady, in support of the Senior Advocates Pro Bono Program
Las Vegas, NV – Southern Nevada Senior Law Program (SLP) is pleased to announce a pledge by business and community leader Travis Brady of $25,000 over the course of the next five years, becoming the second Senior Advocates Sustaining Supporter for our Senior Advocates Pro Bono Program.
Said Brady, “The Senior Law Program provides vital legal services for seniors. As I learned more about how critical the need is, I recognized my family’s investment would expand SLP’s reach to help even more older members of our community.”
The Senior Advocates Program, launched in October 2021, expands the capacity of SLP in meeting the high volume of needs of vulnerable seniors in Southern Nevada. Attorneys who donate their legal time become SLP Senior Advocates, earn CLEs, and increase SLP’s capacity to serve vulnerable seniors.
Diane Fearon, Executive Director at SLP said, “Travis Brady recognized that by providing funding to cover the costs of expanding our volunteer attorney roster, SLP will be able to accomplish our goals of reducing wait times for older adults facing overwhelming challenges. This was an especially generous pledge, one that happens to coincide with Older Americans Month, which pays tribute to older persons throughout the country.”
