LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro police will be partnering with Nevada Legal Services to offer free legal advice for domestic violence survivors starting Wednesday.
The free “Ask-A-Lawyer” service will be available through the LVMPD’s Southern Nevada Family Justice Center on the third Wednesday of every month.
Survivors can make an appointment to get legal advice about housing/landlord disputes, including breaking a lease or moving out of a domestic violence situation with a previous eviction.
The program will continue from June until the end of the year on the dates below:
- June 22
- July 20
- Aug. 24
- Sept. 21
- Oct. 19

Those seeking help should visit the Family Justice Center at 861 North Mojave Road to schedule an appointment. Virtual service is an option, but those in need of assistance may also meet with an in-person advocate.
