Family Law Advice Calls for Rural Coloradans in the 5th JD
Rural Colorado has a shrinking attorney population which has created a severe legal disparity for low-income communities in rural parts of the state. To increase services and pro bono impact in rural communities, attorneys can volunteer to provide advice by phone to rural clients. This service is a limited time commitment that provides substantial help to rural, low-income clients to help them meet the legal challenges they and their families face during COVID.
Volunteer Details: This opportunity gives volunteers the chance to provide individual advice calls to rural clients with family law questions and cases. This volunteer opportunity gives you a week long window to advise the client will never ask you to travel or to provide representation at a hearing.
Process: Once you sign-up you will be added to list of attorneys willing to offer family law advice by phone. When a family law case comes in needing legal advice, we will reach out to you with the name to see if you are available to setup a call in the next week and to make sure you do not have a conflict. If you are available we will get you the clients documents and contact information and you will advice the client within a week.
