Colorado Legal Services is a non-profit corporation that has assisted persons with low income and seniors in the State of Colorado for over 85 years. The mission of Colorado Legal Services is to provide meaningful access to high quality, civil legal services in the pursuit of justice for as many low-income persons and members of vulnerable populations throughout Colorado as possible.
Getting help from Colorado Legal Services (CLS):
CLS won’t talk about you or your case to anyone who doesn’t work for CLS, unless you give them permission to do so. If you threaten to commit a crime, including hurting yourself or another person, they will have to report that.
Some but not all CLS offices can help seniors who are 60 and over regardless of income, but only if the individual problem falls within CLS priorities and if the office has the resources to provide this assistance at the times needed.
Frisco Office Serves: Pitkin & Summit
Leadville Office Serves: Eagle
Hayden Office Serves: Grand & Jackson
Grand, Jackson, Pitkin, Eagle, and Summit Counties
You will not have to pay for the help that you get from CLS if you meet certain limits of income. CLS looks at your wages and your assets (including bank accounts, etc.) in order see if you qualify to be accepted for help by the program.
Record last updated:
When you contact CLS, they will ask you questions to help them figure out if they can help you. The questions will be about your income, your assets and your legal problem.
