Attorney Volunteers Needed for “Ask an Attorney” Sessions at Legal Resource Day

The Colorado Judicial Branch is hosting Legal Resource Day on Friday, October 2, 2015 for people representing themselves in court. This event will allow pro se litigants to visit the Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center (2 E. 14th Avenue, Denver, CO 80203) to learn more about court processes, legal information, and resources through a series of informational clinics, “Ask an Attorney” sessions, tours, and vendors. There is no cost to attend the event.

We are looking for attorneys who would be interested in volunteering at the “Ask an Attorney” sessions. The sessions are in two-hour blocks: 10:45 a.m. – 12:45 p.m. and 12:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. The pro se litigant would have a chance to sit with an attorney for up to 15 minutes in the areas of family law and general civil law, to include evictions, small claims, money cases, etc. Chief Justice Nancy Rice will kick off Legal Resource Day at 10 a.m. with opening remarks welcoming participants and providing an overview of the informational sessions being offered.

If you would be interested in volunteering for either of the “Ask an Attorney” slots, please contact Brigitte Smith, Self-Represented Litigant Coordinator, at brigitte.smith@judicial.state.co.us or call 720-772-2503.
