Elliott D. Yug has been recognized by the State Bar of Nevada Board of Governors and the Access to Justice Commission for accepting a pro bono case in October, 2016. His pro bono activities include representing children removed from the home by CPS and representing clients who have appeals in front of the Nevada Supreme Court. Attorney Yug provides pro bono services in conjunction with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada.
The Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada provides legal services in areas such as immigration, family law, appeals and other areas. They also coordinate the provision of legal representation to children who have been removed from the home. These are some of the more challenging cases for me. My clients are children who have been removed from their home through no fault of their own. They are placed in a different environment and in some cases may never go home. These are also some of the most rewarding cases.
Pro bono representation and serving the community is an important part of being a lawyer. It has been said that to whom much is given much is expected. Much has been given to attorneys and thus much is expected of them.
