Representing the Moderate Income Client

 

 

The practice of law is changing.  In Colorado state courts we have large numbers of people trying to solve their legal issue on their own.  Statistics show that 75% of parties in domestic relations have never had an attorney enter an appearance on their case.  Similarly 98% of respondents in county civil do not have the assistance of a lawyer.  The Colorado Bar Association recognizes the shift in the practice of law and is in the process of creating tools to assist its members in capitalizing on this opportunity to provide legal assistance while developing a successful and financially viable practice.  Please use these tools and provide us feedback as the Colorado Bar Association moves forward with assisting its members in the practice of law.
