The GOOD way versus the BEST way to CONTACT US
First order of business: can you afford an attorney who charges the going rate for legal fees in Colorado? We ourselves have no access to pro bono legal assistance for low-income folks. Call Colorado Legal Services [in Denver, (303) 837-1313] to see if you income-qualify for a free attorney.
If you're a middle-income wage earner seeking legal assistance, one way or another, we will need to speak with you over the phone before providing you your referral to one of our prescreened, member attorneys. Calling us is the best way to get a referral in the least amount of time.
To streamline the process, Colorado Front Range clients (Metro Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins) should call (303) 831-8000, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
Those located in the continental U.S.—outside of the Colorado Front Range—who have a case in our service area, can call us toll-free at 1-877-283-8145.
IF YOU PREFER TO START WITH AN E-MAIL MESSAGE, this is a "good" way to contact us. But before you click on the “Email” link in the column to the left, be sure you plan to TELL US WHERE YOU LIVE. Our service area primarily consists of the counties of Metro Denver, and we have a few attorney members in the Fort Collins and Boulder areas.
Those who live in Colorado in areas south of Castle Rock may wish to call the El Paso County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service at (719) 636-1532 (M,W,F 9am-1pm), as we have no member attorneys in those areas.
There are no Lawyer Referral Services in Colorado west of the Front Range foothills.
If you retain one of our Denver area attorneys, and they have to travel a hundred miles or more to assist you with your case, keep in mind that you may need to pay transportation reimbursement to the attorney, usually before they make the trip…each time they make the trip.
If you send us an e-mail, don’t give us all the details of your case.
The Referral Counselors in our call center are neither attorneys nor paralegals. Simply tell us in your e-mail what you are considering hiring an attorney to do: get a divorce, need legal defense, considering bankruptcy, need a will, starting a company, suing someone for reimbursement of losses associated with a negligence, etc. One or two sentences will tell us the kind of attorney you need, and our subsequent conversation with you will help us zero in on the attorney who specializes in the kind of legal services you need.
Best bet: call us…(303) 831-8000, or toll-free long distance 1-877-283-8145
