Robert McPeak Pro Bono Victories and Service

Robert McPeak, co-chair of our Energy, Environment & Natural Resources Law Practice, serves as General Counsel of the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. In a recent pro bono matter, Rob assisted a couple struggling with job loss and a disability and on the verge of losing their home. The clients were sued and had nowhere to turn until Rob took their case through the LACSN Pro Bono Project. With his help, two lawsuits were dismissed (one with prejudice) and the clients are on track to keep their home. Rob also helped the clients get title to the property in their name which was not done when the original property transaction occurred. 

In another pro bono matter, Rob obtained 501(c)(3) status as pro bono counsel for the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund, which was formed to oversee the consolidation and distribution of funds contributed in response to the October 1, 2017, shootings at the site of the Route 91 music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada.
