MAC Honored For Its Pro Bono Efforts

Las Vegas, Nev. –

On December 7, 2012, the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada (“LACSN”) held its 12th Annual Pro Bono Awards Luncheon to recognize all of the outstanding pro bono services provided by attorneys in Southern Nevada. In recognition of its commitment to the Children’s Attorney Project, MAC was awarded the 2012 Pro Bono Award of Excellence! Additionally, one of the firm’s attorneys, April Becker, was also honored for being one of only 30 attorneys in Southern Nevada who performed over 100 hours of pro bono work. This was truly a great honor and a testament to all of the outstanding work that our firm did throughout the year.

pro_bonoIn 2012, MAC was fortunate to provide a significant amount of pro bono legal services to many of Southern Nevada’s most vulnerable citizens. Specifically, MAC partnered with the LACSN to represent abused or neglected children and to defend their rights during abuse/neglect proceedings against their parents. Although Nevada does not require that an attorney be appointed for all children placed in State/County protective custody, it does recognize the need for a lawyer to represent such children. Accordingly, Nevada’s statutes provide for the appointment of an attorney for a child in such situations. Unfortunately, given budgetary constraints of the County and State, fewer than 40% of the children in protective custody/foster care have attorneys representing their interests. As such, there is a tremendous need for pro bono attorneys to provide that representation.

Recognizing this need, MAC contacted LACSN and accepted over 25 cases to represent abused or neglected children through LACSN’s Children’s Attorney’s Project. In doing so, MAC provided over 530 hours of legal services to those children and without a doubt, made a difference in their lives. We are eagerly looking forward to continuing our partnership with LACSN and the Children’s Attorneys Project in 2013.

The Nevada Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of MAC Client On Local Government Funding Dispute

Created on Tuesday, 29 January 2013 16:09

Las Vegas, Nev. –

The Nevada Supreme Court recently ruled that Clark County was not permitted to arbitrarily reduce the annual budget of MAC client Southern Nevada Health District.  In 2005, the Legislature gave SNHD a dedicated source of funding that was allocated from existing tax revenues in Clark County.  Clark County had fully funded SNHD from 2005 until mid-2011 when the County reduced SNHD’s annual budget from approximately $21.5 to $5.6 million, without providing any reason.  MAC first obtained a writ of mandamus in the District Court against the County in 2011, in which all past-due funds were ordered to be paid to SNHD.  The Supreme Court recently upheld the District Court, concluding that the Legislature intended to fully fund SNHD from existing tax revenues, without arbitrary reductions from the County.
