Since 2011, The Justice Center has been working in the Pikes Peak region to decrease the gap in access to justice and legal services. We do this primarily through providing free legal clinics, participating in community access-to-justice events, and providing connections to pro bono and low bono (reduced cost) representation.
Everyone deserves access to legal resources. Many times, those who lack the resources or finances to hire an attorney are those who need it most: victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities, senior citizens, and immigrants and refugees. We seek to fill in whatever gaps we can to ensure that under-served and vulnerable populations in the Pikes Peak region have a chance at justice for their situation.
We need volunteers! We are always looking for attorneys to assist at clinics or take cases. We are always open to more community members getting involved – through serving on our board, internships & more.
Over 75% of people with family law cases in the Pikes Peak region don’t have an lawyer. In 2017, over 45,000 eviction actions were filed in Colorado – about 865/week.Over 75% of people with family law issues in Colorado are self-represented.
“I do not believe I would’ve come out of such a torturous period of my life without the guidance, professionalism & wisdom of my attorney. The program saved my life.” — - K.B. (received a pro bono attorney through our programs)
