To apply for reimbursement from the Fund, download an Application for Reimbursement or request one from the State Bar of Nevada. Fill out the form as completely as possible and clearly state what services your attorney was hired to provide to you, what services were provided and what measures you have taken to recover your loss prior to applying for reimbursement.
You should include copies of any documentation that you feel will prove what you allege in your claim. This includes: your fee agreement with the attorney, if you had one; canceled checks; receipts; and documentation of how you have attempted to resolve the issue with the attorney before contacting the Clients’ Security Fund. You should also keep a copy of the completed form for your records. Failure to submit a completed application and attach relevant documentation may result in a delay in processing.
Within a week of receipt of your completed application, you will receive notice that your claim has been opened. The notice will include a claim number which you should keep as a future reference. An investigator will be assigned to review your claim and may contact you directly for more information. The Committee meets twice a year to consider claims, usually in the spring and fall of each year.
