CARSON CITY, Nev. — Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt is launching a program to provide free legal assistance to members of the military.

The attorney general scheduled a news conference Wednesday marking the debut of the Office of Military Legal Assistance. The public-private partnership is a response to military members who say one of their biggest unmet needs is affordable legal services.

Laxalt said that when he was a Navy judge advocate general (JAG), he was restricted in assisting service members because they needed help from civilian lawyers practicing law in state courts.

The program seeks out Nevada lawyers to donate pro bono hours to military members, and helps connect the two.

Laxalt's advisory committee includes representatives from the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada, bar associations in Nevada and state veteran services agencies.
