About Washoe Legal Service

Washoe Legal Services (“WLS”) is a non-profit legal aid organization founded in 1965. We believe that the justice system exists to protect the rights of everybody, not just those who can afford to hire an attorney. In 2016, we provided assistance to over 7,000 individuals. We directly represented more than 1,600 people, including 282 protected persons in adult guardianship cases, 307 victims of domestic violence, and 982 children in the foster care system.
