Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s Pro Bono Project offers a variety of Ask-A-Lawyer programs for unrepresented individuals to receive free 15-minute consultations with volunteer attorneys. In this case, the power of attorney must be explained to you by a prescribed person such as a lawyer, and that person must sign a certificate stating that you understood the effect of giving an enduring power of attorney - that is, that the power of attorney will still be valid if you lose your mental capacity.
