This is a fraud non profit. They don't help people. They hurt people instead of helping. I'm a woman and the male board of directors Max yelled at me and made fun of me for having to ask for pro bono help. He wouldn't help me. Him and the executive director refused to help me. They are bad people.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Shut them down.

This non profit Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada lied to me and told that they don't have any pro bono volunteer attorneys to help people. I filed a grievance with Barbara Buckley, the President, and she had the nerve to lie to me and tell me she doesn't have any volunteer attorneys. It took her an entire 15 minutes to tell me she doesn't have any attorneys. She didn't send out any emails to look for an attorney for me. She just LIED.

Additionally, I spoke to over 10 volunteer attorneys in the consumer protection department and they all said they are on the legal aid list and Barbara Buckley never contacted them.

Furthermore, the non profit description says they help with consumer problems. They lie. They don't help with nothing.

This non profit does not help people. They have over 13 million in grant money donated every year, and it appears that they keep it all, and don't use it to help the indigent people. Barbara Buckley should be ashamed of herself for how she treats people. She is a bad person.

She knows exactly who I am. She could of easily called me to apologize and work this problem out. However, she chooses not to. Barbara Buckley is a very bad person. She's a liar.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Shut it down and throw Barbara Buckley in prison for running a fraud non profit.

Barbara Buckley is a fraud. She went out of her way to cause harm and LIE to an indigent girl that asked for her help with a legal problem concerning suspension from college. Barbara said college students have no appeal rights. She LIED!

Fraud has seen many nonprofit organizations lose funds running to millions of dollars in unclear circumstances. Your report of fraud could help recover diverted assets and serve justice to perpetrators. A Washington Post article on Oct. 27, 2013, cites the case of Lela West of the Virginia Scholastic Association, who was handed a 10-year prison sentence in March 2012 for financial fraud and ordered by the court to compensate the organization with restitution totaling $150,000.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Put Barbara Buckley in prison for non profit fraud.
