Published on Thu, Feb 28, 2013 (10:38 a.m.)(LAS VEGAS, NEV.) – The Young Lawyers Section (YLS) of the State Bar of Nevada, in collaboration with Nevada Legal Services and Southern Nevada Senior Law Program, is hosting “Serving Seniors,” a free legal assistance clinic for senior citizens. The event is April 26, 2013 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the West Charleston Library Conference Room located at 6301 West Charleston Blvd in Las Vegas.
Attorneys from Gordon Silver and throughout the valley will be in attendance to provide senior citizens with legal information regarding basic estate planning tools like powers of attorney, wills and probate issues for small estates. Information will also be provided on elder law issues such as guardianship, social security, and other benefit programs.
“This is a great opportunity for senior citizens to receive valuable information to help protect themselves in the event of incapacity or ultimately death,” says Kristin Tyler, attorney at Gordon Silver, and chair of the event. “Part of the mission of the YLS is to provide charitable service to the community, which is what we aim to accomplish with the ‘Serving Seniors’ event.”
