Access to Justice Commission

The Supreme Court of Nevada created a permanent Access to Justice Commission (Commission) in June 2006 to promote equal civil justice.  Access to Justice/Equal justice under law is not merely a caption on the façade of the United States Supreme Court building, it is perhaps the most inspiring ideal of our society. It is one of the ends for which our entire legal system exists.  It is fundamental that justice should be the same, in substance and availability, without regard to economic status.

The Nevada Access To Justice Commission is comprised of 27 members with Justice Kristina Pickering, and Justice Elissa Cadish serving as its co-chairs.  The Commission has embarked upon an aggressive comprehensive agenda intended to improve the ability of all Nevadans, particularly those of modest means, to utilize Nevada's legal system by improving the delivery and funding of legal services programs, pro bono services, and self help services.  The Commission is supported by a Director (Brad Lewis) who is employed by the State Bar of Nevada.

Landlord/Tenant Law

Because legal disputes can often have a long-lasting financial impact, it may be advisable to speak to an attorney before taking any actions.

Although you may not believe that you can afford an attorney, there are many attorneys who are willing to offer a free or reduced-fee consultation. When you first meet with a lawyer, you should talk about their fees, and put any fee agreement between you and the attorney in writing.
