We believe everyone deserves access to justice. The Justice Center has works in the Pikes Peak region to decrease the gap in access to justice and legal services. We provide free legal clinics, connect income-eligible applicants to free and reduced cost attorneys, and host free educational legal events.
Access to justice isn’t equal. Research shows that 86% of legal problems reported by low-income Americans receive little to no help. Vulnerable populations such as families facing wrongful evictions, women trapped in abusive relationships, persons with disabilities, immigrants, veterans & seniors are often left behind. Justice access can have a huge impact on their families, economic success, health, and housing stability.
The Justice Center is in need of new volunteers – attorneys and legal professionals to give their time at clinics, events, and taking on pro bono cases.
Colorado ranks fifth worst in the nation for its number of attorneys available for free legal assistance to low-income people in civil cases.
“I sincerely do not believe I would have come out of such a torturous period of my life without the guidance, professionalism and wisdom provided by my attorney. The pro bono program saved my life.” — Anonymous client who received a pro bono attorney
