First Judicial District offers one-on-one assistance to self-represented litigants

Friday, April 17, 2015

GOLDEN, Colo. – People representing themselves in court proceedings in the First Judicial District (Gilpin and Jefferson counties) will have the opportunity to meet with an attorney for 15 minutes to discuss their criminal, eviction, money, divorce, or small-claims case.

The Law Day event, sponsored by the 1st Judicial District Bar Association, will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, May 1, 2015, in the atrium between the Jefferson County Administration offices and the Jefferson Combined Court, 100 Jefferson County Parkway, in Golden.

There is no charge to meet with an attorney at the Law Day event.  Discussions will be confidential.

The event is part of a broader national program to celebrate the United States’ commitment to the rule of law.  This year’s Law Day theme is Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law.

“Law Day in Jefferson County gives our community members an opportunity to meet with an attorney for 15 minutes free of charge to get some direction and information about their court cases or legal issues,” said District Court Magistrate Marianne Tims. “Because more than two-thirds of all cases have at least one self-represented party, the service our volunteer attorneys offer is invaluable to the people and to the court.”
