Northern Nevada Legal Aid is a community organization that supports individuals serving time at Washoe County Detention Center. Currently incarcerated individuals in Northern Nevada face numerous legal challenges that go far beyond the criminal issues for which they are serving time. From constitutional rights for incarcerated individuals to domestic issues and estate planning, currently incarcerated individuals face various non-criminal litigation matters. Northern Nevada Legal Aid offers legal resources to assist with incarcerated individuals’ civil legal matters. While legal representatives do not offer direct legal representation or assistance with any client’s criminal cases, they do act as a walking, talking law library to help incarcerated individuals in civil matters that require legal resolution while incarcerated. The mission of the organization is to help minimize the stress associated with navigating legal issues while behind bars.
