RENO, Nev. – Northern Nevada Legal Aid (NNLA) is happy to announce the appointment of Lisa Evans as the organization’s new Executive Director.
Lisa is a long-standing Legal Aid attorney who has represented Legal Aid clients in every substantive legal area served by Northern Nevada Legal Aid, including five years in our Child Advocacy & Guardianship programs.
Immediately prior to first joining this office in 2016, Lisa served 10+ years as a Legal Aid attorney in Portland, Oregon. This program employed a “holistic lawyering” model designed to serve all the legal needs of every accepted client. Lisa hopes to adapt this model to service delivery at Northern Nevada Legal Aid.
Lisa returns to our office from the State of Nevada Attorney General’s office where she represented the state in labor relations. “I am excited to lead NNLA as we continue to provide vital legal services to our community, and as we seek to make a greater positive impact through necessary litigations.” said Lisa.
