The Civil Law Self-Help Center (CLSHC) exists to provide legal information, not legal advice, to the public. The staff of the CLSHC is obligated to remain neutral and there is no attorney-client privilege or confidentiality of any information shared by a visitor and the CLSHC.
We offer assistance in the following Legal Topics:
- Civil Actions
- How to Collect a Judgment
- How to Contest a Writ of Execution
- How to Represent Yourself in Court
- Landlord - Tenant & Evictions
- More Legal Topics (Bankruptcy, subpoenas, unlawful towing, etc.)
- Protection Orders
- Small Claims Actions
The following list describes some of the things that the CLSHC can and cannot do for you.
Because the CLSHC staff may not know the answers to all questions about court rules, procedures and practices, and because we do not want to give you incorrect information, we have been instructed not to answer questions if we do not know the correct answers and may refer you to other legal research resources to assist you in getting the information you need. The Civil Law Self-Help Center is located at 200 Lewis Avenue, in Downtown Las Vegas and is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
