The Misdemeanor Clinic in the Thomas and Mack Legal Clinic represents people charged with misdemeanors and traffic offenses who do not qualify for public defenders. To find out if you qualify for a public defender, go to the Clark County Public Defender website.

In the Misdemeanor Clinic, professors who are experienced criminal defense attorneys supervise student attorneys handling misdemeanor cases from charging through trial and sentencing.

Fines and fees

We represent defendants facing fines, fees and court-ordered programs. We recognize what a struggle it can be to owe money for fines and fees and court-required programs. Fines and fees force families to divert needed household funds to the courts, and failure to pay can lead to bench warrants and jail time. 

For more information on fines and fees, visit The Fines & Fees Justice Center.
