The Las Vegas office of the national Ballard Spahr LLP law firm made a $10,000 donation yesterday to Nevada Legal Services (NLS) to help the organization kickoff its $10 million capital campaign for a new facility. The check was presented at the Clark County Bar Association’s monthly luncheon.

Founded in 1958, Nevada Legal Services is a nonprofit which provides free legal services to low-income Nevadans. It has outgrown its space at 530 South 6th Street and plans to demolish the aging and worn facility and replace it with a new 24,000-square-foot building. NLS owns the property, which is conveniently located near a bus line, court buildings and other public municipal service facilities.

“We wanted to play a significant role in helping the capital campaign get off to a sound start,” said Rob Kim, Managing Partner of Ballard's Las Vegas office. “We hope the legal community and others will want to help this worthy organization continue the great work it does helping those who otherwise wouldn’t have adequate access to justice.”
