Instructors Needed for Popular Small Claims and Collections Pro se Clinics

These popular clinics are offered once a month in Denver. Volunteer attorneys simply offer instruction to attendees on how to file their own small claims cases in court, and how to collect on their judgments. Tips include gathering information, forms (where to get them and how to complete them), filing (how and where), defending one’s position (do’s and don’ts), and court procedures.

These free informational clinics welcome general questions but will not provide direct legal advice nor will they directly assist in completing forms.

For more information or to volunteer for either of the clinics, email Meghan Bush.

Both Clinics are held at the Denver City and County Building, 1437 Bannock Street, Room 164, from 11 am to 1 pm. The Small Claims Clinic meets the third Tuesday of every month and the Collections Clinic meets the third Thursday of every month.
